When I received the Kaku Wahoo 10.5 in April this year, I noticed the surface of the plastic body of the kayak had porocity (small bubbles) in several p!aces, stern and port side. The open cockpit floor was bowed up and has a lot of flex when standing. I have had the Wahoo on fresh water reserviors for a total of 30 hours, fishing and recreational paddling. The seat is comfortable, but the foot rests are not, too vertical. I had to make and attach some wedge-shaped soft rubber pads, which places even pressure on the bottom of my feet now. The Wahoo is easy to paddle but not as fast as I like. It turns fairly quickly, and takes large boat wakes very well. The Wahoo has an aggressive tri-hull design, making it very stable, but very noisy. Water SLAPS the underside making a lot of noise. The sides of the kayak are sloped out and down, so you can sit sidesaddle while fishing. The cockpit floor flexes qiute a bit when standing. It is however, covered with a comfortable deck mat. The Wahoo is 33 inches wide, I'm 5'-9", using 240mm paddle. I would like to try a 250mm paddle to see if it makes a difference with my paddling. The Kaku Wahoo 10.5 is a nice flat water fishing kayak without bell and whistles, but I am wishing I had bought the 12.5, which has more room and is faster.
Very nice and versatile product! It fits easily into the back of my truck and I take it EVERYWHERE! I've used this thing in small ponds, large lakes, and even in the river! It's nice to have so you can sneak up on those bass, catfish, and sunfish that like to hide in the security of tree cover (inaccessible from the shoreline)... Thank you for an AWESOME product!!!
These are such amazing kayaks! I personally do not own one (yet) but I know someone that does own one and they love theirs!
what can i say, summer is almost done and i was able to stress-test the 2017 Kaku Wahoo 10.5' kayak at the Grand River, . This kayak is a River Monster. it handled the rocks & water with full force very well and its unbelievably stable. The back-park is precise and smooth. Love how the black plastic bottom hull at the back is separated from the main hull, ideal for back parkers such as myself. i checked the front hull after the river run and found no dents and hardly any scratch. It does have its battle scars but that's about it. Kaku Wahoo is highly recommended.!!
