Introducing the Big Rig FD! One of Jackson Kayak’s most popular fishing kayaks now gets the upgrades of both its HD predecessors, the Coosa HD and Cuda HD with the addition of Flex Drive pedaling power. The FD will be compatible with the upcoming E-Drive motor giving users a truly hands-free fishing experience, where the rudder controls return to foot control and our battery will take you anywhere you want to go. Hull size and performance are comparable to the original Big Rig, but features an elongated keel for superior tracking while paddling, pedaling, or motoring. The FlexDrive system allows forward and reverse, has unique articulation to adapt to shallow water, obstacles, or cleaning, and is removable for true kayak use. The FD version of the Big Rig takes advantage of the past 5 years of HD upgrades with some twists. It features the High Hi-Lo Ergo Seat Frame with MOLLE System, which includes infinite fore-aft trimming. The unique Big Rig rod troughs are doubled up with TWO rod tubes on both sides of the bow. The Big Rig FD’s new rod staging system lets you set down and snap up your rods at a moments’ notice. Unlike the other models, the rod tubes can also accommodate fly rods up to 9′ in length with fly reel geometry behind the seat. Jackson Kayak’s use of track systems remain throughout giving you flexibility in setting up for the day of fishing and our hulls are molded for Raymarine and Power-Pole readiness. Storage is upgraded throughout the Big Rig FD with hatches updated to new rotating latches.
