I have had a Tarpon 120 for almost 9 years and it was time for something different. Been looking for something a little bigger and something I can stand up in. I had my eye on a Slayer or a Wildy Ride for a while but was just waiting for the right deal, wanted to buy used. Got this beast for 750 on Craigslist. had it out a few times now and love it. 14ft Native Slayer. She is much heavier than what I'm used too, but so much room and the seat is awesome.

Very nice yak, the tarpon is what I've been fishing out of for a few years as well, I like how big the storage areas are and the elevated seat looks very comfy and dry.how stable is it to stand and cast from ?good luck with your new ride

Thunders, it's very stable while standing. I have yet to catch a really nice fish standing though. But have caught and released some small trout while standing but those guys don't pull much lol. Yea very dry seat no more riding around with a wet butt, which happened a lot in the tarpon. I love being able to stand up and see, really changes the game.

Nice yak! Any elevated seat is a plus
