The Trident Ultra 4.7 is a collaboration between our designers and an international group of dedicated professional kayak anglers. Based on the Trident 15 and crafted around the original Prowler hull, the Ultra 4.7 incorporates more volume across the bow for a drier ride, a moderate rocker to help performance in ocean swells and a more pronounced tail fin to aid in tracking. The easy to rotate center hatch cover is a must see!

Many other reviewers have mentioned how heavy the kayak is and I will wholeheartedly agree. For me the weight isn't a problem as I roll it to the beach on wheels and never have to lift it on a vehicle. You do feel the weight of the kayak when paddling but I don't consider it unreasonable.
I love the rudder system. It is easy to deploy and retract from the seat and works beautifully to keep the kayak on track. The only thing I might change is to make the seating a little lower in the kayak like my Scupper Pro and thus bring the center or gravity closer to the water. That being said the Ultra 4.7 delivers a much drier ride than my Scupper Pro or any other sit-on that I have tried. I do like the seat and find it supportive and comfortable for my hour or two of paddling.
I can't review the fishing amenities as I don't use them but I love the large open storage deck behind the seat. I carry a sizable crab trap very easily as it is such a large space.
To summarize: I highly recommend this kayak especially for heavier paddlers.
