The Blackfoot™HB Angler XL from the Aquaglide high performance line of inflatable fishing kayaks gives you hard shell kayak performance with inflatable kayak convenience and lightweight. You’ve seen those typical inflatable kayaks. Aquaglide HB’s are different with a supremely rigid high pressure "HB" Hard-Bottom™ drop stitch floor giving it a rock hard and stiff hull. The "HB" Hard-Bottom™ floors also allow their self-bailing design feature. Combine this with 100% Aquaglides tough Duratex™ Heavy-Duty PVC tarpaulin tube construction that provides the highest durability and greatest ease of maintenance. You’ll love that Duratex™ will resist mold and mildew if packed away wet. So easy to inflate in an average of about 6 - 8 minutes. No metal frames to insert or put together, just inflate 3 chambers up to pressure and go fish! These perform so well, people tell us they think they are in a traditional hard shell kayak. You’ll wish you had one long ago.
The Blackfoot™HB Angler XL at 13 feet has the space and capacity of 600 pounds to handle a second person just by adding a seat to the d-rings already placed for that purpose. This Blackfoot™ has the widest beam at 39 inches giving it the most stability and creating a combination with the rigid stiff HB hull that best allows you to stand and cast if desired. This XL version comes complete with a soft cooler/tackle storage that has 4 rod/net/gaff holders and other pockets. It’s set up with a total of seven 4-hole base plates allowing you to mount a whole array of Scotty, RailBlaza and other adjustable rod holders, camera mounts, fish finders or electronics securely and easily within arms reach. The XL version also includes a inflatable elevated seat platform to position under the rugged core™ seat that has an array of thoughtful features including, mesh storage pocket, integrated fishing-rod holders, fore and aft seat strap adjustments so you enjoy your time on the water to its fullest. Take this inflatable with confidence to waters accessed only in your wildest angling dreams!
You'll appreciate the Splash-Guard™ positioned at the bow deck to help keep anglers dry and providing easy stowage for dry bags or other gear. Sturdy molded handles are positioned for convenient launching and handling. The high-performance US fin box system includes a unique oversized foiled fin making these kayaks track straighter than any inflatable you've tried. Because nobody likes to fight with their gear, an oversized front-loading travel bag/backpack is included for easy storage and transport. This bag is large enough to easily fit the kayak without a struggle, and still able to be checked onto most airlines as standard sized luggage. To unleash the Blackfoot’s full potential we suggest using one of the 12V High Pressure pumps and/or a High Pressure Push pump to top it off at max pressure. Pumps and Paddles are sold separately. USCG approved life vest are also required by law and just good to have at the least. Duratex™ Heavy-Duty PVC Tarpaulin is so durable you may never need to repair it, but if you do a repair kit is included and repairs are almost as simple as putting a band aid on. Aquaglide HB series are expedition grade kayaks that will last for many years.
(Important Note: Use ½” x 20 machine screws and washer combinations that extend less than ½” from any accessory bases being installed on 4 hole mounting plates on this kayak. Longer can puncture it.)
