The SS127 “Sit/Stand” fishing kayak is the result of months of R&D and has been carefully designed for Ultimate Fishability™. Designed for maximum stability without sacrificing paddling performance and angler-friendly features where you need them, you really have to paddle this craft to fully appreciate it.
The experience starts with the incredibly comfortable HiRise™ kayak seating system. The ultra high-back seat allows you to sit with your knees bent, taking pressure off of your lower back. If you want to really dig in and cover some distance, the SeatRack™, and foldable seat frame allow quick and quiet conversion to a lower position.
You’ll notice right away that the SS127 sit-on-top fishing kayak is one of the most stable kayaks you’ve ever been in, which is surprising considering its 33.5” width. It’s not kind of stable. It’s crazy stable. A few paddle strokes later will leave you wondering how a fishing kayak this stable and only 12 feet-7 inches long paddles and tracks so well. Stop paddling, and the next surprise is the smooth and sustained glide. The icing on the cake is that in spite of all of this, the SS127 turns really well. How did we get all of this performance into one hull? We tested, we measured, we refined, and we did it again – over and over and over until we got what we were looking for.
A great paddling sit-on-top or stand up kayak is nice, but a great paddling fishing kayak requires more than just paddling performance. It requires something we call “Fishability”. It’s feeling confident enough to move around, sit or even standing up to fish. It’s having your gear out of the way but within reach. It’s the comfort and ergonomics that enable long days on the water. It’s every piece, every part, and every function being carefully designed for versatility and with the kayak angler in mind. It’s an overall kayak angling experience in which things work the way they should work. For us, the bar was set at Ultimate Fishability™.
Brad Hicks –
I love my SS127! It’s extremely stable to stand on. Probably the most stable kayak I’ve ever been on. The seat is amazing. The comfortability of this kayak is great. I have spent over 8 hours sitting in this kayak at times and never have any back or leg issues. The high seat position is all I use. I still have yet to use this kayak with the seat in low position. I think my most favorite thing about this kayak is the storage space. Inside my SS127, I store all 5 of my rods, life vest, paddle, net, anchor and line, rod holders (4) fish finder and mount, and dry bag. I STILL have room in the front hatch after storing all my gear. If you get this kayak, make sure to purchase the flex wings as well because they definitely help with tracking on this kayak. Also, with the seat being so high, you will need a longer paddle as well. I recommend the bending branches angler ace or angler pro 260 cm paddle. You won’t go wrong with this kayak. It’s a great fishing machine.
The SS 127 from Bonafide is a beast. The size and versatility of this kayak makes it super stable and also very easy to paddle. After taking this kayak out on the Little Miami during high water from all the rain we have had and quick water. I had no issues paddling aginst the current up stream aswell as being able to stand in the kayak with out any hesitation. That being said I’m 6 foot 4 about 275 if I can stand and it anyone can, especially in a river that is up and moving quick. I highly recommend that this kayak be on your list when looking to make a new investment into a quality fishing kayak. The staff at loveland canoe and kayak is super friendly and very knowledgeable and will aid and help will any questions anyone may have, and get you set up with all your needs.
