This is a pretty good,…

Submitted by: Gardensbob on 8/30/2021

This is a pretty good, functional seat that puts you (IIRC) about seven inches above the kayak floor. I got mine, as part of the package, when I bought the NRS Star Pike inflatable in June of 2020. Attachment of the seat to the D-rings in the floor is relatively quick and simple and I find the seat comfortable for a full day's floating and fishing. It isn't a perfect system, though, but the downsides are minimal and easily remedied. 1) The tension adjustment straps on each side of the seat back aren't of very high quality and tend to fail. Mine failed after about 30 hours of use. So, you can probably plan on either replacing them or doing without. I do without and it seems OK. 2) Although the NRS writeup on their site states that no straps for attaching the seat to the D-rings in the floor are provided, mine came with four short buckle-type nylon straps for this purpose. They work OK, but require some fussing to attach and reattach each time you install the seat. I simply replaced them all with nylon straps with trigger clasps which I attach to the D-rings. It gets me on the water quicker. All in all though, a good seat..

I have a Tributary Tomcat Solo that I had been using for lake fishing. That meant sitting in water, though, giving the self-bailing aspect of the boat. I ordered an NRS fishing seat for it. I was concerned about the width, but it wedges perfectly between the tubes. It's awesome. I was concerned it would raise my center of gravity and make my boat tippy while casting, but it is the perfect height. The backrest is such an improvement, too. I definitely recommend it for making one's whitewater IK into an able fishing boat.
