Old Town Sportsman vs. Predator vs. TopWater Comparison Guide

Sportsman vs. Predator vs. TopWater. Which one should you choose?

Introducing the new line of fishing kayaks from Old Town: The Sportsman

Are you ready to take your fishing experience to the next level? Whether you are looking for a paddle or pedal kayak, you are bound to find your perfect match! The new Old Town Sportsman Line was created with a fisherman's needs in mind, which includes rod holders, custom tackle box, and built-in accessory tracks.

You may be familiar with the award-winning Predator and Topwater kayaks, but it's time to move those aside and welcome their new models; the BigWater 132 and the Sportsman 106 and 120. These exceptional kayaks are available in both paddle and pedal (PDL) versions and their comfortable seating has been upgraded to a premium Sportsman seat.

It may be a tough choice between the silent, stealthy and efficient paddle crafts or the award-winning hands-free PDL drive, but either way, you will not be disappointed; especially with a guaranteed five-year warranty on all pedal drives.
