The seat in these Tridents is really comfortable. The enlarged back well is really cool and the new rea hatch lets you stow or access for mounting hardware. The rod pod feature is narrower than the older trident by around three inches. More leg space. A little heavier but in line with all kayaks in this class that are new.

Is the seat pan different? Another words, can you bolt the new seat onto the old trident?

Hah!!!! That's the first thing I looked at. I think that one of us could make something to adapt the new seat to the old Trident. Speaking of which. There is inventory of the older tridents but once they are gone, they are gone. When they go into production krusty, I'm going to buy just seat and try it. So Yes it is different. There is a flat spot up front that the seat rests on. Two mounted brackets that hold the different front height adjustments

Any prostaffers out there know if they redesigned the scupper in the new tridents to fit different transducers?  :smt006 Do you  need to drill to run transducer cables or did they come up with a newer option. Would really like to know , thanks.

The transducer scupper hole is now centered and moved up towards the bow a bit. It has a cord pocket and then a rectangular cover/mounting plate over it.

The transducer scupper was modified slightly to accommodate the Humminbird XNT 9 DI transducers (tear-drop shaped).  No changes on the cable routing options still need to drill to get the battery cable into the battery bag.  They recommend a sealing grommet and here are a couple options:

That is a bad ass looking fishing machine  :smt007
If the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck I'd swim to the bottom and never come up.
