A great kayak it will be, it has everything we have always wanted in a plastic kayak.

I'm sure a lot of people new to the sport will want one and those of us who have been around for a while will be upgrading yet again.

I'd be interested to know what Spring Green looks like and what other colors might be available with this new model.

I am certainly looking forward to the July release....

Cheers

The Spring Green Kayaks aren't too bad, When I first saw it, I thought the colour was a bit bleah, but after seeing it everyday for a week now, I kinda looks cool in a minty, lime sort of way  :thumbsup

I have been looking around the NZ Kayak Fishing Forum and I cam across this, a picture series of the installation of an anchor trolley on a 4.7 Ultra, well it looks like they must have down a production run of Spring Green over in NZ as this Ultra is certainly green...http://www.kayakfishingnz.com/rob-fort-running-anchor-rig/

Hey Sel,

No that was a custom made spring green kayak :) I've since moved on to a red one now :)

Cheers, Mental
