Jackson Kayaks Cruise FD 12/7 Kayak Review
Jackson Kayak takes the Cruise 12 to another level with the Cruise FD 12/7 which includes their innovative Flex Drive pedal system. What’s even better is that it is also compatible with their E-Drive trolling motor so you’re able to interchange the units whenever you want.
With forward and reverse capabilities, the Flex Drive’s unique design features an articulated shaft that protects the prop when paddling in shallow water or near submerged obstacles. The design also provides an easy way to clean away weeds or debris as the hinged prop cover is located directly in front of the seat for easy access. This means you don’t have to remove or raise the Flex Drive in order to clean it, nor do you have to get off the water as it can be done on the fly!
The Cruise FD 12/7 is a beefed up version of the original with additional features, more storage, and added length and width. The hull is still river-friendly, but the longer length improves tracking on flat water lakes, while the greater width improves stability for heavier paddlers and boosts confidence for standing and fishing.
Beyond being a river-friendly fishing kayak, the Cruise FD 12/7 features an open deck layout to keep gear within easy reach. The large cockpit includes a centre console not found on the original model yet still features the pre-installed traction pads offer a slip-free experience. Gear tracks are located on either side of the deck in the FD version, and a rod holder and cup holder are included in the package.
The Ergo Seat comes standard with an ergonomic design for support right where it's needed, while the quick-dry material prevents mold and increases the longevity. The seat is fully adjustable and removable for times when you're in need of a comfortable beach chair!
