The Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 E is rigged for adventure and is a great all-round touring sit on top kayak. With a 159kg max capacity the 120 E can comfortably be paddled by users up to around 110kg and still have room to take on kit for a picnic, overnight camp or fishing. The efficient hull has a V profile at the front which cuts well through the water and will handle choppy waves too. The rest of the underhul profile is designed both for stability and good straight-line tracking.
The Tarpon is rigged with many premium features. Adjustable foot rests are fitted as standard: these provide a strong point of contact with the kayak. A large easy-open bow hatch provides ample space for carrying a trolley such as the C-Tug. Another storage hatch is fitted just forwards of the seat. Also in the cockpit within easy reach are two storage pockets with mesh covers. A large rear tank well offers plenty more space for a big dry bag full of kit!
With four Wilderness Systems SlideTrax accessory mounts pre-fitted this is all ready to transform into a fishing kayak without having to do any DIY. If you want to go further with modifications you could even add a pair of flush mount rod holders either side behind the seat to troll some lures as you paddle. The Slidetrax system can also take other accessories such as a visibility kit or camera mounts.
A great all-round performer on coastal and inland waters the Tarpon 120 can also be fitted with an optional rudder kit for enhanced performance in cross currents, choppy waters or windy conditions. As the rudder pretty much eliminates the scenario where you end up paddling mostly on one side in adverse conditions it can extend your paddling range considerably.
