If you like the Cuda 12 but not the weight then you will love the Cuda LT. Jackson shaved about 20 pounds off the Cuda with the Cuda LT. It has all the same things you love about the Cuda 12 but is much lighter. It is also a great cross over recreation kayak.

At WCO we are almost constantly impressed with the innovation that comes from Jackson Kayaks. Thought to be honest we didn't see this coming. While thermoform technology has been around a while not many companies have made it an important part of their fishing boat lineup. Jackson has done just that taking the most popular fishing kayak on the planet, the Cuda 12, and making it 20 POUNDS lighter! Our prediction is if you don;t buy this boat early good luck finding it when the season begins.
The LT version is also sleeker aesthetically and due to the lighter weight is slightly higher performing and a little more stable than the original Cuda 12. This new version maintains the deck features that everyone loves from the Cuda 12 - central hinging hatch, rod for various rod and tackle storage options and adds a couple new features to help the angler out, including new Yakattack tracks for and aft!
We have used the Cuda 12 since its creation. WE have also had allot of feedback from Cuda 12 owners over the years. We have also seen the paddle purchased for this kayak get longer over the last couple of years. It took a couple of years for folks to trust longer paddles but once they had a 240cm in their hands they quickly gave up any though of a shorter paddle. the Cuda 12 is sort of in between though for shorter folks. We recommend anyone over the height of about 5'10" get the 240cm and anyone under get the 230cm, although the 240cm would not seem overly long for someone under that height.

I bought the Cuda LT last November and I couldn't be happier with it and the service I received from WCO! I was nervous buying a kayak on-line but it showed up wrapped in cardboard and then wrapped in a heavy cloth. It was perfect! WCO know's what they are doing!!
Advantages: The Cuda LT is LIGHT! It's fast! Plenty of storage, very stable (I can stand and fish) tracks great has everything you need for fishing already installed. I've used it in many different lakes and on the Delaware River without any problems. It was so much faster than my old yak on the river! Paddled up-stream no problem!
Disadvantages: The only disadvantage I can possibly think of is due to it being almost 13ft long it doesn't exactly turn on a dime!
