Introducing the new 2017 Jackson Cuda 14
Please Note: All 2017 Jackson Kayaks come from the factory "rudder ready" which means the tubing is installed by Jackson inside the kayak. Delaware Paddlesports can install the footpegs, wiring and string required to make your rudder operational ($50 fee). If we install the rudder for you we do everything except actually mount the rudder as it would get damaged in shipping. Mounting the rudder is very easy to attach when the kayak arrives to you.
If you are looking for speed and stability, then you are in the right place. The Cuda is the answer to the big water fisherman’s dream because it has both the speed needed to trek long distances quickly, and the stability to stand and fish when you get to your destination. Designed for fishing flatwater, tidal waters, and those fishing beyond the breakers. The Cuda 14 comes complete with a full range of features that accommodates fly fisherman and conventional anglers alike.
1 - Hull Design
Designed for speed and stability, the Cuda 14 is a great tracking kayak and excels in flat water. The Cuda 14 has plenty of speed to get to your favorite fishing hole and the stability to stand and sight cast those shallow water predators.
2 - Hinged Center Hatch
The Cuda’s center hatch is now hinged for easier use and comes with YakAttck gear tracks, and day hatch for easy internal access.
3 - Center Hatch
The Center Hatch allows you to access the hull of your kayak. This is a great place to store rods for a gnarly surf launch, or all your gear when traveling. It is easily accessible on the water. You can also add an tub insert that allows you to keep plenty of on the water accessories close by. The hatch cover has small indentions that keep items like hooks and weights from falling on the floor of you kayak, and eventually down a scupper. The hatch cover is also a great place to mount accessories like a GPS or a depth finder.
4 - Ergo Seat
Jackson’s new Ergo Seat is an upgrade from the Elite seat with all new 3D breathable mesh fabric, improved lumbar support, strengthened supports for hi-low seating, additional storage spots and compatible with the newer track/hi-low systems being built at JK.
5 - Yakattack Gear Tracks
Located on both sides of the center hatch and various parts through the kayak, there are 8 gear track locations on this kayak. The YakAttck gear tracks are built in to the kayak in easily accessible locations for adding accessories via Yakattack Screwballs and RAM Mounts.
6 - RAM Rod Holders - RAM Mounts
Each Cuda 14 includes a RAM 2007 Rod Holder and 1.5
Each kayak includes a Nalgene 32 ounce wide mouth water bottle.Made in the USA, our custom Nalgene bottles are decked outwith Jackson Kayak logos.
8 - Rod Tip Protector
The Rod Tip Protector is a great way to store your rods when they are not in use or if you are paddling through tight areas like mangrove tunnels. By concealing the rod tips, they won't get snagged on brush or weeds, and helps prevent you from accidentally breaking your rod on the water. You're on your own with ceiling fans and car door
9 - Rudder Ready
Comes pre-rigged for easy rudder installation, if it suits your paddling style.
10 - Rear Tackle and Rod Holders
The Cuda has a very large rear tankwell for plenty of storage. Along the sides of the tankwell, there are 2 tackle stages that hold 3700 size boxes horizontally. Also, behind the seat the Cuda comes with two Ram rocket launcher rod holders that keep your reels clear of any saltwater that may splash up when paddling.
11 - Rod Stagers
Stagers are great locations to place items that you need handy but aren’t using at the moment. They also keep the rods from sliding around the kayak.
12 - Paddle holders/stagers
The perfect compliment to the rod stagers. These allow easy stowing of your paddle when you are ready to make that perfect cast.
13 - Ram and GoPro Inserts
There are molded-in inserts located throughout our fishing boats for GoPro and Ram mounts. They have have been placed in locations that are convenient for use and optimal for GoPro footage or fishing accessories via ram mounts.
14 - Heavy duty seat attachment buckle
Durable and tough attachment that will outlast all the use and abuse you can manage, season after season. Keeps your seat locked in position and makes you feel connected to the kayak.
15 - Hull Storage
Open hull space that allows for safe storage of fishing rods, camping gear, PFD’s, dry bags, etc.. A great way to keep your gear safe when traveling and generous volume allows you to pack enough gear for expedition paddling.
16 - Removable skid plate
We protect the biggest wear area on the kayak with the skid plate. Your keel will last season after season with this smart feature.
17 - Adjustable foot pegs
Making the boat functional for paddlers of all sizes. The foot pegs adjust easily.
18 - Ergonomic Handles
NEW Ergonomic Handles with added grip textured inserts help you keep good contact when carrying your kayak, even when wet. Also, there is no fabric to ensure snag-proof days on the water.
