69lbs for a 13.5ft yak.
 :smt009

but I guess the 450# weight rating needs the weight with the extra width.

I do like the finish of the eddyline kayaks, always have.

Give the current C14 two more feet forward of the cockpit and it's pretty much my dream boat.

I agree with Dustin 16' would be perfect.

On the C14 a cut out for 'ducer would be nice too, shoot thru hull is fine for ocean but it's noticeable in freshwater when I'm targetting stripers in mostly less than 20'. I didn't get along with hanging it over the side, more shit to catch fly line on.

Tank well needs to be big enough for a black pack and/or make it easier to strap down the typical plano box. I've been to lazy to add some pad eyes. I just use dry bags on ocean right now because I don't like the way the plano box sits in the tank well. My 19qt. Engel cooler/dry box is perfect when on still water.

While the C14 "rod pod" isn't as nice as my Trident's, you can get rods in the hull. It does usually require removing the reel from the rod though. Several surf landings doing it and it's OK if less than ideal with 2 gear rods and a fly rod.

Some people have cut the area for more access to hull but I'm hesitant to do that.   

I'm looking at the C135 as freshwater/delta standup boat, should be able to double haul a clouser another 20'+ standing up. Is there a lean bar option? I'm bringing my SUP paddle when I go test one. Either the C135 or dedicated SUP fishing craft (BOTE? Diablo?) is my next boat.

The  past weekend has me jacked for the fall striper run, maybe more kayak trips for them this year...need a new target specific boat, LOL

Do you guys have the mod pod on your 14's? I ended up taking mine off because it takes up so much room but the center collects a little bit of water. I am working on cutting my mod pod down to make it only about 3 or 4 inches tall and flat on top. I looked but couldn't find an aftermarket lid anywhere.

I did modify a costco stadium seat and it fits the Caribbean 14 really nice. Spent all day on it Saturday and felt great. If anyone is interested I can take some pics.

Great ideas everyone, I have shared them with eddyline. They want to build a kayak based on what anglers want. Lots of features have com from angler input. Eddyline is new to kayak fishing but has a long history of making quality kayaks.

The 2015 C-14 was redesigned in the tank well to fit a blackpak. Fits perfectly.

I will check in about the standup bar. I can't wait to try the C135, delta and lake fishing in pure comfort.

Anyone know if they did anything to accommodate a transducer on the C135?

I gotta get over to HW and get a demo.

My understanding is they did. I am sure Dan will be posting more info since he has the first one in our area.

Every scupper is lowrance ready.

IMO, a fiberglass boat that size should weigh 40#'s

This kayak is a thermoform kayak, not fiberglass.

13'5" / 34" wide / 69lbs / 450lbs max
13' / 34" wide / 70lbs / 550lbs max
14'3" / 31" wide / 74lbs / 400lbs max
13' / 34" wide / 66lbs / 400lbs max

Which one is which? Match these specs to the following kayaks: Eddyline C135, OK Prowler Big Game, Jackson Cuda 14, Santa Cruz Raptor.

Which one is telling the truth should be the real question. I can't speak for santacruz and ocean kayak but I know the Cuda 14 is over its advertised weight. Having paddles all 4, I can say that although they are all great boats none are in the same league as the Eddyline.

Even infused carbon is hard to get down to 40lbs. (And still be durable) we sell Sterling Sea Kayaks and he uses some of the lightest most advanced materials in the world. He's bolisitic carbon
Layup is 32-38lbs and cost around $6500-$7000. Light and durable come at a serious price.

Eddyline is filling the niche of a high stability, stand up stable, lawn chair fishing kayak and I think they have done a great job. It's not only lighter than anything like it, it paddles at a whole different level. If your looking for ultra light and ultra sleek buy a Stealth. The C135 is for the decerning fisherman who wants all the features of a big guys boat but also wants something that paddles well and is easy to load.
