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.
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. 9 ft. 1 in. hull turns easily yet tracks well, accelerates quickly and cruises efficiently. Seat and back pads use soft, contoured foam covered in a textured stretch material for plush comfort and protection from the cold; oversized cockpit increases comfort. Backrest with side-mounted cam buckle and durable webbing allows simple adjustments while seated in kayak. Soft knee pads attach either inside the cockpit or on the exterior, offering customizable comfort. Slidelock footbraces are easy to adjust from inside the boat; simply raise the black plastic rod to unlock and slide foot peg into desired position. Touring-style deck rigging offers quick access to necessities; small bungee on left side of cockpit stores paddle to free up hands. Soft-to-the-touch carry handles at bow and stern make trips from the water easy; unlike hard, plastic handles, the soft-touch handles are easy on cold hands. Light enough to transport and launch by yourself, the Dagger Zydeco weighs in at a very manageable 36 lbs.
It's hard to make friends, let alone find someone with whom you want to spend your life. You can spend hours at on-line dating sites with no results, and all it will take is a few minutes in the Dagger Zydeco 9. 0 Kayak to know you've found a life-long friendship, assuming it doesn't turn into something more. This gregarious boat makes kayak-virgins feel at ease and will rise to meet the demands of more experienced river rats. Despite popular rumors, your first time, ahem, on the water will be a truly wonderful experience and leave you wanting more. From bow to stern, the hull is designed for stability, speed, and maneuverability. The keel up front and skeg in back give you tracking like a dog to a bone. A long waterline and a channeled midsection enhance on-water stability and sports-car like acceleration so you can keep up with the pack. The cockpit gives a dialed-in feel so seasoned paddlers will be able to hew tight lines when pushing their paddling boundaries. At just over 14 inches, the deck height helps deflect rough lake chop without forcing the bow tip down for steady paddling on unsteady water. Comfort Fit Seating outfitting adjusts for a custom fit every time. The seat can be tweaked while you're on the water, and cushioned pads move to protect your knees or thighs. On-deck bungee rigging puts gear within arm's reach, just in case circumstances change in a hurry and you need protection from the weather. Two soft-touch carrying handles make it easy to move this boat from the store to your car, to the lake shore, and to your car again, because you know you're taking this honey of boat home.
