The basic level Reload is now equipped with a removable flat deck for added interior deck room. The bow and keel design provides an ideal paddling experience with the lift and stability needed for inshore waters, as well as rough water and high wind conditions. The basic Reload also now comes standard with a removable flat deck as well as the waterproof Viking hatch system.
A spacious tackle pod on the Reload Z offers the ability to integrate a fish finder, battery and transducer setup. The Z comes standard with a rudder, three waterproof bucket hatches, the Viking tackle pod, high back seat, four rear-flush mount holders and two mid-deck flush mount rod holders.
Additionally, the all-new 2017 Z includes a RAILBLAZA 280 TrackPort mounted to the tackle pod with two RAILBLAZA RodHolder IIs, two Tank Well tracks, rear StarPort and a high visibility yellow bungee on the bow with paddle roller and tank well.
The large, recessed side handles on both the Profish Reload and the Profish Reload Z make lifting and loading much easier. They both come in three colors: the Reload Z features Viking's unique color blends, and the Reload is available in three solid colors.
Comfort and tackle management are important to kayak anglers who spend hours on the water, YakGear President Bill Bragman said. "We're excited to introduce new innovative products for our customers like the Profish Reload and the Reload Z. Our guys want a dependable kayak they can manage easily — weighing in at 68 pounds without the removable pod — and use in rough water conditions with relevant accessories they can use out on the water."
Viking Kayaks' Profish Reload and Profish Reload Z are available through YakGear. Call 866.610.7431 for more information on how and where to purchase the Reload and Reload Z.
