Introducing the Big Rig HD! One of Jackson Kayak's most popular fishing kayaks now gets the upgrades of both its HD predecessors, the Coosa HD and Cuda HD. Most importantly, the Big Rig HD can be converted into the Big Rig FD. The HD version of the Big Rig has features an oversized center storage pod, foot-controlled rudder system, the Ergo Seat with infinite Hi-Lo and Fore-Aft trimming vs fixed position, and the unique Big Rig rod troughs are doubled up with TWO rod tubes on both sides of the bow. The Big Rig HD's new rod staging system lets you set down and snap up your rods at a moments' notice. Unlike the other HD 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 HD with hatches updated to new rotating latches. Upgrading from the HD to the FD is a snap - the center pod is replaced with one that includes geometry for our FlexDrive unit, and the rudder controls convert to hand rudder controls for the FD experience. From the FD, the addition of our E-Drive (coming November 2018) means 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.
