Vanhunks Pike Features

Hull Design

A lot of thought went into the Pike’s hull design to optimize all the aspects needed for an enjoyable experience. With its shorter shape, the Kayak is easy to maneuver, and with the Double Pontoon-shaped hull and swallowtail, the Pike’s stability is never in question. The Double Pontoon Hull allows the easy flow of water through the channels, increasing traction and increasing speed. Even though the Pike is a short kayak, the hull and shape have created extra buoyancy, and the Pike has a carrying capacity of 190kgs / 419lbs comfortably. The additional weight capacity was a crucial element in this model’s design, and the Pike offers a lot of storage for a Kayak of this size.

Rudder System

The Pike has an easy-to-operate adjustable foot control or hand-controlled rudder system, and the system is interchangeable from one system to another. The Deep adjustable rudder provides great direct action and limits drift therefore keeping the speed of the Kayak. As a bonus, the Rudder blades are compatible with the Bixpy motor. Should you wish to add a Trolling motor, there are Brass inserts molded in at the Stern of the Kayak to make provision for a side motor mount.

Storage Space

Storage is always a must on kayaks, and the Pike has a square hatch in front of the raised seat that opens up into the hull, which is perfect for those bigger catches. Should you take on some water from inserting your catch of the day or merely needing to rinse out the craft, there are two drainage holes at the Kayak stern that can easily unscrew to allow drainage water. The Kayak’s bow, complemented with a large flip-up hatch, and the Kayak’s stern area, a large storage tank well with bungees, allow ample space to secure your gear.

Premium Seating

When you are on the water for a long-time, comfort is highly appreciated; the Pike has a raised Deluxe Aluminium seat to assist. The seating is adjustable to recline or upright to your comfort needs, and the raised element keeps the water under the seat and not on you. The Pike, fitted with a molded-in high or low seating position, makes for easy chair height adjustment. The low position for choppy conditions and the elevated position gives you an advantage view of the water and added comfort.

Vanhunks Pike - Fin Drive....meh

I really wanted to love this kayak. My first fishing kayak was the Lifetime Teton and I love it! I just don't have the options for fin or prop drives with it. I decided to look around to see if I could find an affordable option. The Pike has a great price point but still for the money was expecting to have a kayak to be better than my Teton which was about 3x less money. The stability is good, the molded in handles are awesome, and I really like the width of the kayak. The things that were not good for me were 1) the rod holders were not deep enough and I felt like I was going to lose a pole (my Teton holders are about 3" deeper), 2) the cinch to hold up the rudder did not work until I reinstalled it upside down, 3) the clips that hold in the fin drive are pretty loose and can easily move to the open position, and 4) the seat is just okay, my Teton seat is much more comfy. I am actually looking to sell my Pike because I am just not as happy with it as I should be for the money I spent.

Just what I wanted.

Purchased the Pike 9.8 this is my first kayak. Was thinking about Kayak fishing for about a year. Everytime I looked them up the Pike was the one I wanted. So I can't compare it to anything else,but it's sturdy and well built. I haven't tried standing up yet but when I do and I fall off,I'm pretty sure it won't be the Yaks fault. When I first ordered I didn't get the fin drive I talked myself into it and ordered one the next day. I'm glad I did,I recommend the Pike I think you will be happy with it.

Vanhunks Pike Fishing Kayak

Sadly with the weather I have yet to take it out on the water. Delivery was absolutely perfect! Not a scratch and delivered right to my carport. I did sit it in in the car port and it feels comfortable and stable. Can not wait to actually get out in the water to break it in! Thanks!

Vanhunks Pike Fishing Kayak with fin drive

Very pleased with the kayak so far. The fin drive nor the kayak came with any instructions. I initially had the fin drive mounting frame reversed which made the fin drive keep popping out of the latches. It tracks well and is easily controlled with the rudder and the fin drive propels it along at a decent speed although not as fast as a sleeker rounded bottom boat but I would rather have the Pike's stability than increased speed. The shipping and packaging were good, no problems. The paddle, rod mount and replacement fins were welcomed extras. One (minor) suggestion would be to enlarge, slightly, the length of the side tackle box holders as they don't quite fit the 3600 series boxes which a fairly standard. Good service from Eco Fishing and would not hesitate to buy from them again. One last suggestion would be to specify exactly what the listed weight refers to. It seems to weigh more than the listed weight ( I didn't weigh it) but I can still put it on my roof rack by myself without too much problem. All in all - great so far.
