Designed for stability and comfort, the Tsomo Angler's compact length makes it convenient to transport on the roof racks of a sedan or on the back of a bakkie. It is also easy to store if storage space is a concern. Naturally, the smaller size and lighter weight make it easy to carry around.
The Tsomo Angler is alert, playful and responsive. It turns on a dime, cruises on flatwater and is a pleasure to paddle. It is not designed to win any races, but it has plenty of speed and glide for such a short sit-on-top. Its width aids stability – a welcome feature when the wind whips up the water.
Key features include a large tankwell with crate-holding indents, Multifit fittings and bungee cord around the tankwell, cliprings to attach thigh straps, bottle holder, paddle rest, stand-up platform, sculpted seat, adjustable footrests and a front hatch. There are handles at the front and rear as well as two handles on each side to carry this kayak using a double-handed grip. Paddle cutaways enable an ergonomic stroke and make this kayak feel a lot narrower than it is. Should a wave dump water onto the deck, scupper venturis will quickly drain the water as you paddle.
The Tsomo Angler has two flush-mounted rod holders, two deck rails and an anchor trolley..
