Old Town Predator 13 & MX Review

The Old Town Predator 13 & Old Town Predator MX models are very similar, and thats why I’ve decided to join the reviews together – the main difference to take into account are that the MX is smaller and wider – so for those who prize a little extra stability over a little extra speed, the MX is for you. For those looking for a leaner, more aerodynamic model with the same features, then the 13 is absolutely perfect.

 

And let’s talk about the features of these models – as they are pretty impressive, and offer an unparalleled standing fishing experience. They weigh in at about 86lbs & 82lbs respectively, which is a little heavier than other available kayaks. However, for a couple of pounds extra weight, you’re actually gaining dozens of pounds in extra capacity, as these kayaks can handle up to 425 lbs to 400 lbs – significantly more than models of similar size and cost. And speaking of cost, with a price range of $1189 to $1299 (on Amazon, at time of writing), these kayaks are excellent value, stacked with features, and are definitely considered amazing value for money.

So, just what do you get with these kayaks I hear you wonder? Well, I’ll tell you. To begin with the absolutely, undeniably most important point – this is a brilliant kayak for standing fishing. Oh yes, that elusive vessel that’s capable of supporting a standing fisherman is finally here. And what’s more is that it works on ponds, lakes, rivers, and surf. Stretch your legs and cast your hook anywhere you like in this kayak!

 

It’s Smart Design

Helping you to stand, is the lovely seat – which may sound odd as you don’t tend to use a seat when standing. However, this is no ordinary seat. While many seats adjust, the Old Town Predator 13 & Old Town Predator MX take it to a whole new level. The seating positions aren’t just a matter of reclining or lumbar support, instead, they are positioned for travel, attack, or standing. To travel, you’re lower, close to the water for easy paddling. In attack, you’re higher up, with better views and leverage. And in standing the whole seat flips away, giving you more than enough space to even take steps forward and back on the kayak.

The stability you need to stand is largely provided by the Tri Hull made from the tough LT 900 polyethene, which is also ideal for tracking and comes with a lifetime warranty. Old Town has patented their one-way scupper valves, and the eight scupper holes guarantee you will never find yourself sitting, or even standing, in a puddle. There’s plenty of storage, as you would expect on a fishing kayak – with a rear tank well as well as several other moulded cargo holders providing space for everything, from tackle boxes to a battery, should you decide to bring a trolling motor. There’s storage and a mount for your paddle, which means you can go hands-free and enjoy the fishing. There are also unlimited extras and options you can add to this kayak, in case you really wanted to jack it up.

 

PROS:
  • Unbeatable standing space and stability
  • Plenty of storage
  • Top of the range scupper valves and Tri-Hull

 

CONS:
  • Seat isn’t removable – though it does flip over completely
  • No moulded rod holder – though there are six movable mounting plates

 

If standing is what tickles your pickle, then this is, without a doubt, the best kayak in terms of stability, durability, and value. Look no further!
