A great kayak for ponds, lakes and mellow rivers, the Dagger Zydeco 9.0 Kayak offers a fun time for any paddler thanks to its roomy cockpit, smooth hull design and comfortable seating.
Dagger brings you a paddle full of excitement with the Zydeco 11. 0 Kayak. This easy-riding boat holds you and all of your gear, tracks like your Bloodhound, and barely makes a dent in your bank account. First-time paddlers will savor the stability and seasoned river rats will relish its ability to handle moving water. Longer than the Zydeco 9. 0 and with more dry storage capacity, you'll be able to enjoy overnight fishing and river camping trips without sacrificing any essential gear. Lightweight and stable, the Zydeco will bring a song to the lips of first-timers and experienced paddlers alike. On the bottom, the bow keel bleeds into a flat and channeled midsection, and tapers to a built-in skeg at the stern. Steering is sweet, accelerating across the flats doesn't require an all-out effort, and navigating tight lines won't leave you feeling on edge. The generous cockpit lets you enter and exit with grace, regardless of whether you're shaped like a prima ballerina or a 10-year veteran linebacker for one of those midwest teams that seem to play most games in driving snow. The Comfort Fit Seating outfitting gives you on-boat adjustments when you need to tweak the seat. Cushioned pads attach inside the cockpit if your knees are particularly knobby, or on the outside to protect your thighs when you're paddling with a purpose. The stern hatch and bulkhead storage give you gear-toting capacity for water-based climbing trips or full-day fishing forays. Keep your rain gear within arm's reach using the bow or stern on-deck bungee rigging storage system.
Quick on the water, the Dagger Zydeco 11.0 offers the performance to tackle the adventure right in front of you and the features you'll need for the adventure beyond.
Dagger brings decades of experience and team-tested, paddler-proven heritage to freestyle kayaking in the all new Jitsu Series. Tested and approved by some of the world?s most skilled paddlers, the Jitsu excels in surfing and aerial moves in wave play with volume proportions that allow skill development in hole play as well.The Jitsu's unique rocker profile, hull to rail relationship through the stern, carefully distributed centralized volume, and slicey tips make three dimensional combination moves in advancing hole play easier while creating a seamless blend of speed, looseness, and release on waves. The double-step carving rail above the release edge also helps the boat to grip and drive on wave faces for very controlled carving. The Jitsu maintains snappy edge-to-edge transition yet it is arguably the loosest hull on the market today.Out-performing competitor freestyle kayaks downriver, the Jitsu is a solid all-around choice for those who want to enjoy big waves, holes on river, and freestyle competition too
