    Daamn Greg… you`re in good shape !! 😀

  2. William Collejo on April 1, 2020 at 1:40 pm

    Nice kayak. I will get that

  3. Charles Crews on April 1, 2020 at 1:41 pm

    How does the titan do in grass

  4. Patrick Servat on April 1, 2020 at 1:43 pm

    I wanted to buy one but the local dealers don’t want to mention the name native

  5. David Collins on April 1, 2020 at 1:44 pm

    Man I’m kinda regretting buying my outback. That thing is awesome

  6. Joe Steen on April 1, 2020 at 1:47 pm

    You guys are in Cali?

  7. Teddles Peddles on April 1, 2020 at 1:48 pm

    Damn too bad they didn’t come out with these kayaks 20 years ago, great reviews guys👍👍

  8. Kevin Evans on April 1, 2020 at 1:48 pm

    I watch your side by side review videos. But would really like to see Titan vs hobie. I can’t decide between titan 12 and pa12

  9. Martin Martinez on April 1, 2020 at 1:49 pm

    The Native 13.5 or or the Big Fish Kayak?

  10. doobydogg4life on April 1, 2020 at 1:50 pm

    One thing’s for sure, you guys definitely know how to sell a kayak… 😎👍

  11. RUDYAKAHALIBU77 on April 1, 2020 at 1:50 pm

    Great review guys , this demo only leaves us to get on the boat ourself. I actually saw one of these kayaks for sale and was scratching my head for a while. It’s nice to see another pedal kayak , I do like the stability and pedal system shown.

  12. MuleOutpost 815 on April 1, 2020 at 1:52 pm

    The ascend 12.8t would make a good stability comparison

  13. TV JOB on April 1, 2020 at 1:55 pm

    please show me how to carry to kinds of car. example like small car or fam car or truck..
    thanks for good imfo👍

  14. TJ James on April 1, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    How do most people transport them? Do they buy a trailor? It seems a lil heavy to throw on top of a car

  15. Jason Colon on April 1, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    What about using the kayak in bay Ocean chasing stripe bass

  16. Jim L on April 1, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    Great video guys! I’ve been saving for a 13.5. I’m 320 and 6’3” so max capacity of 600 lbs and the width is what I want. The Old Town PDL, XL, AND MK intrigue me, but I keep coming back to Titan!

  17. Malie Malie on April 1, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    Hello, you think that the Titan propel 13.5 can support a person of 160 kg, at sea, calm of course

  18. Prynce Al on April 1, 2020 at 2:00 pm

    One thing I didnt hear mention of during the review was cavitation, I demo’d the titan 12 and cavitation was horrible! I heard the guy say it during the drag race but he didnt talk anymore about it in his review of the 12!!

  19. Rich Dagsher on April 1, 2020 at 2:02 pm

    Great Review guys. Which Native Watercraft pedal kayak would be good for the individual that wants to Bass fish primarily. But also have the option to get out on the ocean to go crab/ling/rock fishing? I’m leaning towards the titan 12 or slayer propel 13. Any suggestions?

  20. william bouchard on April 1, 2020 at 2:02 pm

    Great review! Thanks for showing all three. I bought the Titan 12 from Delaware Paddlesports in Lewes Delaware and really enjoy this kayak. The first upgrade I made was the Boondox rudder as the factory rudder isn’t the best. I also just installed the bull nose prop that Native sells as an upgrade and this prop is much quieter. Love fishing the local ponds in this kayak.

  21. Brad Reid on April 1, 2020 at 2:05 pm

    Greg’s built like a gymnast. He could walk on mash potatoes. What is interesting about the "drag races" is how very seldom top-end speed is used in kayak angling. I suppose at the start in a tournament, you might want to race out to secure a location first; but, other than that, we all pedal around at a walking speed. At the front end of the video, all three of you can be seen pedaling out before the drag race . . . and you are pedaling at the same cadence, covering water at the same general speed. If a PA 14, a PDL and other pedalers were lined up with you? It’d be essentially the same thing . . . all moving along at a slow/medium or fast walking clip. My guess? The 10.5s will sell very well to customers wanting easier storage and for getting vessels to the lake and back home easier; the 12 will become the choice for competitive anglers, the 13.5 for the bass boat equivalency, guys who want to really carry out a lot of gear. Great video guys! Brad

  22. Jose Zamora on April 1, 2020 at 2:07 pm

    Hello everyone selling a Native Propel 13 in Mc Allen Texas. Send me a message ,

  23. Aaron Miller on April 1, 2020 at 2:07 pm

    Maybe a silly question but do they make them without pedal drive

  24. Glenn Daugherity on April 1, 2020 at 2:08 pm

    The one thing I worry about being a beginner kayak guy is the stability when you lean over to like land a fish ! But these don’t look like that would be a concern at all. Even though most times I’ll be fishing in shallower water is still don’t want to go over.

  25. TV JOB on April 1, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    Thank you for good informations

  26. Greg -Left Guntersville- Riddle on April 1, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    I’d love to see a follow up and a category I feel you missed: paddling. I feel like the 13.5 would probably be the slowest given it’s width and weight. But maybe not for a big guy with a long paddle. I’m currently in a Slayer 10 and am thinking of upgrading but my Native dealer doesn’t currently have a Titan 12. Thanks for the content. Maybe I’ll stop by when I visit my brother in Pleasant Hill next month.

  27. Neocari Daniel on April 1, 2020 at 2:12 pm

    You really work hard to bring the info to the people. Thanks!

  28. Malie Malie on April 1, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    Hello, can we use the Titan Propel 13.5 at sea? Thank you for your reply

  29. Jaime sorlí on April 1, 2020 at 2:19 pm

    the thing is making the guy in the titan 10.5…., to fishing and casting stand up is possible to do it with the slayer 10…., the titan is amazing but is a big diference in the weight beetween both…., i can put the slayer alone on the top of the car but the titan is to much heavy for me……, can you fishing stand up on the small slayer like he do in the titan 10.5 or is a really big diference beetween both in the stability for that…
    wait for your answer…..
    thanks, love your videos

  30. Steve Kuehnle on April 1, 2020 at 2:21 pm

    Great video guys!

  31. BullBars1 on April 1, 2020 at 2:22 pm

    I would like to see bow hatch locks for the 12 and 13.

  32. Ajw 007 white on April 1, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    I noticed on the smaller boat I think the 10-footer you have like a CF number on it why do you have it on that one and not the other ones

  33. lmazcraz on April 1, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    What are you’re thoughts on the 13.5 for coastal offshore use and beyond the breakers?

  34. Out West with Chris on April 1, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    You guys had way too much fun! Great informative comparison.

  35. rob s on April 1, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    Dude lol. That 13.5 looks like you could put a small chair in the back for a second person lol

  36. Caleb Godwin on April 1, 2020 at 2:25 pm

    I wish I could get my 13.5 to track straight lol

  37. Harold Cale on April 1, 2020 at 2:25 pm

    all three kayaks are good but that foot paddle isn’t my choice of foot paddling. think I like the other foot paddle than this one.

  38. John Strand on April 1, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    JUst bought a Native Titan 10.5. Three trips out on the water and my rudder cable already snapped. The cable on my Propel 10 lasted 4 years before it broke. Three weeks is ridiculous and I suspect they put too small a cable in this heavier boat. The set screw design at the steering handle is not good. It is sawing through the cable every time that you turn the boat.

  39. Steven Werth on April 1, 2020 at 2:27 pm

    Sweet Yaks 😎👍

  40. lexwaldez on April 1, 2020 at 2:28 pm

    That 13.5 is the first Native I think that’s appealed to me. I think if i wanted a paddler I’d choose something else but for a pedal machine, I think that boat would fish.

  41. Yankee Tanker on April 1, 2020 at 2:29 pm

    such a great video

  42. Oliver Petavy on April 1, 2020 at 2:29 pm

    Thanks a lot for this great Video …

  43. Cory on April 1, 2020 at 2:30 pm

    you can download Kayak Log, its a free app and it will show your MPH

  44. Colbeans Ontoast on April 1, 2020 at 2:31 pm

    How long before we have power assisted pedalling like my push bike. Now I would buy that.

  45. SquirrelSmasher on April 1, 2020 at 2:33 pm

    I’m 6’2" 285 and I currently use a Vibe Yellowfin 100…..any of these would be a massive upgrade for me!!

    No idea what I’ll end up upgrading too. My biggest thing is stability.

  46. Bruma Fish on April 1, 2020 at 2:34 pm

    Quanto custa esse caiaque?

  47. Justin Hawkins on April 1, 2020 at 2:34 pm

    Just bought a titan 13.5 I’m a big guy 6 foot 1 300 and can stand in it with 0 issues. Never thought I could do that on a a kayak

  48. Prynce Al on April 1, 2020 at 2:36 pm

    Awesome awesome awesome video.. Titan 13.5 was my original love when I first discovered pedal kayaks…havent purchased one yet bcuz I got stalled out demoing other yaks …havent demoed the 13.5 yet but phuk it I want it!!

  49. alex mum on April 1, 2020 at 2:36 pm

    12 is definitely the next yak i get

  50. joe Vasquez on April 1, 2020 at 2:38 pm

    Like matching weight of person to kayak length is very important …….. ? Is there a scale of sorts for noobs? Min advised length for weight?
