The Slayer 12 XC is the first boat of its kind designed to be comfortable floating rivers, stalking the flats, and paddling open water.
“Having the skeg system is like having two kayaks in one platform. It is truly effective for tracking dead ahead when deployed and turning on a dime with one stroke when retracted.” – Vinny Ferreri, Queen City Kayak Bass Fishing
The hull of the XC is designed towards cross conditions performance. A broad flatter hull not only allows river anglers to maneuver and control their boats in tighter conditions while sliding through shallow areas with a very shallow draft, but it also gives an incredibly stable standing platform for sight fishing. When it’s time to cover some ground, a flip of a lever drops a directional skeg to allow the Slayer XC to track on a line to the next spot. The XC maintains a clean deck profile for anglers, but is carefully packed with fish ready features and advanced electronics capabilities for the biggest gear hounds. The electronics pod can be removed and replaced with the included flat deck plate to create a WIDE OPEN deck, perfect for stripping fly line with no tangles.
In designing the XC, we worked with a group of our pro staff to develop not only a layout fit for a pro, simple and clean, but feature rich. No cluttered deck, no tangled lines, just fishing on our mind.
