Re: NuCanoe

They sure do look more stable than my canoe. Any idea what the prices run?

Re: NuCanoe

i have seen them for around $850 for the 12', which isn't cheap, but they look pretty versatile. thats why i was looking for some feedback before purchasing.

Re: NuCanoe

Bow, there is a Raddison for sale on the HPA general classifieds for a pretty good price $350 (?). These are light, stable, and pretty easy to paddle. They'll handle a motor as well.

“did you get all that on camera sport?”

Re: NuCanoe

I own a native ultimate 12 and I think you will like the nucanoe. It is nice to be in a stable platform for both fishing and and hunting. With the open hull you'll be able to maneuver to use and access your gear. Being able to stand is a relief at times and a stealthy way to fish or look for cripples. It does not look like a very quick hull and might be difficult to paddle upstream for downed/wounded birds.

Re: NuCanoe


That's my Radisson, Thanks eddie spaghetti.

Don't know much about the NuCanoe (looks like a wide SOT kayak) but the Radisson is perfect for fishing and hunting and @ 35 lbs its really light too.

yakattack is right, pretty much any canoe/kayak that is good for fishing/hunting (wide, flat bottom) is gonna be harder to paddle.

No problem Tracker! If I didn't have a Sportspal already, I'd be all over your deal. I think the NuCanoe is a pretty cool looking ride, and it looks quite versatile. To me, the weight of the canoe is a big deal - the 12' NuCanoe is 77lbs. I think you could get the same versatility with the Radisson at half the weight. Just my opinion.

Re: NuCanoe

there are several companies with a similar type of yak, i would look at the nataive 12 someone mentioned earlier, looks to be a better set up

Re: NuCanoe

To me they look like just the type of craft that would be ideal for my type of hunting. Don't hunt any rivers just lake edges and swamps. What intrigued me was the width of the canoe. The canoe I have now is fine but don't try to swing to fast and your pretty much limited to where you can shoot, no shooting to the right side (right handed), so you have to position the canoe so that all shots are to your left but with the wider more stabil platform those ducks that come swooshing by on the right would be in trouble. Plus it's a pain in the butt to try and answer nature calls.

Re: NuCanoe

Nucanoes run $699 for a 10' and 799 for a 12' this is from a local dealer, I am also thinking about getting one.
