Ascend’s ultimate kayak for anglers, the FS128T Sit-On-Top comes packed with features specially designed for fishermen. The angler-specific design starts with an advanced Tunnel Hull design with a wider transom and flared bow sections for displacement distribution that increases primary and secondary stability.
This hull design delivers the stability needed for stand up fishing while also providing solid tracking and easy paddling while moving. The FS128T features a solid casting platform for stand up fishing with a pull up assist strap to help you switch from sitting to standing fishing. The removable 360 degree swivel seating system combines 3 height options with a padded and adjustable, ergonomic seat.
Designed for anglers, this kayak features a fully adjustable rod tender, 4 flush mount rod holders, and molded rod tip stagers in the bow-side deck to hold rods lying prone in the kayak. Multiple storage options include weathertight storage hatches with deck plate access in the bow and stern, a personal hatch with deck plate near the seat, and molded storage areas with bungee in the bow and stern. The FS128T also offers a medium rectangular storage hatch with cover plate in front of its seat and a larger version right behind the seat.
Deep molded storage trays in the sides accept all kinds of fishing gear and tackle, while the molded dash provides catch all trays, a cupholder, and recessed areas for tackle trays beneath the seat. Adjustable foot braces provide a comfortable base while paddling for anglers from 5’2” up to 6’2”. The threaded and sealed drain plug allows you to quickly drain excess water, while the 8 self-bailing scupper drains maximize draining in rough waters. The 1-1/2” scupper drains also accept kayak transducers for fishfinders (sold separately).
