Performance of the C-135 benefits from the Eddyline legacy of design. It is lightweight, acceleration is quick, and just a few strokes will bring you up to speed. A well balanced and extremely stable hull makes the C-135 easy to keep on course in windy conditions. With a carrying capacity of 450 lbs, the C-135 fits the larger paddler, without compromising performance or stability, even when standing in the kayak.
The C-135 sets a new standard in the industry with the luxurious Cloud 10 Seating System - offering 4 seating positions for comfort: High Forward, High Back, Low, and Reclined. It can be folded back out of the way when standing or easily removed from the boat. Made in America using anti-microbial marine grade foam and solar weave tech-mesh fabric, the Cloud10 Seat provides durable, breathable, water and sun proof comfort for those long days on the water.
Carbonlite 2000 looks and performs like fiberglass with clear advantages over other plastics: lighter weight, hard glossy finish, excellent abrasion and impact resistance, superior UV protection, dimensional stability, and increased stiffness. Tough, easy to repair, and 100% recyclable!
As an experienced fisherman, I have owned several brands of fishing kayaks through the years, but have come to rely on Eddyline for beautiful looking and well designed products!
Eddyline kayaks are made of light weight Carbonlite 2000 material that provides a durable and high-gloss UV protective finish.
My C-135 is a beautiful looking kayak. It’s roughly the same width and length as my previous polyethylene kayak but it’s about 45 lbs lighter! It is much easier for me to manage for loading and unloading. It tracks well and once I learned about how to properly paddle using my waist and hips and not just my arms, it tracks even better!
The C-135 glides along smoothly and in calm waters is fun to stand up in to stretch your legs! The deck provides a very solid platform, whereas my kayaks made of polyethylene would flex and even crack.
The Eddyline hatches are well designed and have really helped to keep the water out of the hull. The Cloud 9 seat is removable, very comfortable and offers various seat positions.
I also purchased the Eddyline Mid-Fish paddle. It’s light weight, looks great and has performed very well in windy conditions.
Although Eddyline has recently discontinued the C-135, they continue to produce the Caribbean 12 and 14 fishing kayaks. I recommend taking a look at these if you are considering purchasing a sit-on-top fishing kayak.
Loving my Eddyline products!!!! Wishing you all tight lines! Richard Crann, Monroe CT
Let me start by saying that I love Eddyline Kayaks. I've owned the Carribean 12 and 14 and have demoed/rented several of their sea kayaks-all top notch in quality and performance. The C-135 was a huge disappointment. It paddled terribly. It snaked while paddling then turned back end first immediately when you stopped paddling every time. It needs a skeg or a rudder to rectify the hull design flaw. The seat was comfortable( thank you Native watercraft kayak design) The hull and deck flexed too much. It's simply too big/heavy, too expensive and paddles poorly. All other fishing kayaks I've tried from all the other manufacturers are of far better value and performance.
