Viking Profish Reload


2019 Model Update
The Viking Profish Reload now features 2x Railblaza Starport HD Mounts located between the rear facing rod holders and a new design of Moulded-In Side Carry Handle. Images shown may differ slightly from the current model.


If you want a fishing kayak that will take on everything from fishing in big sea or offshore conditions to trolling lures on big inland waters or just pottering around small waterways, you will want to take a closer look at the Viking Kayaks Profish Reload! This is a kayak for the serious fisherman and has a number of innovative and useful features which makes this one of the top performing fishing kayaks on the market, particularly for UK waters.


At 14ft 9in long the Profish Reload paddles efficiently in a range of conditions making it one of the fastest fishing kayaks on the market. Its flared bow cuts through choppy conditions with ease and the smooth hull glides well on flat water. With a 75cm width the Reload does not compromise on stability either.


The Profish Reload features the Viking 'Tackle Pod' - a fully integrated and removable fish finder, battery, and transducer setup combined with a large tackle storage space. Simply load up the tackle pod at home so that when you get to the launch spot it is quick and easy to tackle up! The hinged lid of the Tackle Pod allows for easy access to your tackle when on the water. The lid also includes a built-in wooden bait chopping board! The top of the Pod makes a great surface for mounting your fish finder unit as well as other accessories such as Rod Holders. A transducer slot features on the base of the pod and will take the majority of popular fish finder transducers - see the 'Tackle-Pod' for compatible models.


Other useful features include a large angled front hatch which will easily take a kayak trolley, a spare paddle (2-piece) or perhaps even a spare fishing rod! There are three 8-inch screw hatches on the Reload that are designed for use as baitwells but can equally be used as drinks bottle holders. These hatches are selaed off from the rest of the hull and features small drain bungs. The Reload has plenty of rod storage with no less than 6 flush mount rod holders! 2 front facing and 4 rear facing. The large rear tankwell will easily take a storage crate with room for more gear. An optional 'Chill-Pod' can be placed into the tankwell to keep your catch in tip-top condition. Adjustable footrests make finding a comfortable seating position easy.


At 31kg the Reload is manageable off the water too and car-topping is made easier by the high-quality recessed tubular side handles - these provide a firm and solid hold of the kayak at its mid-point for loading onto a roof rack. Soft-touch webbing handles can be found at the bow and stern for carrying the kayak on land.


An optional rudder kit is available for the Reload to enhance performance and handling when paddling in cross-winds or cross currents. Another optional extra is the Kid-Pod - this sits in the place of the tackle-pod and provides a seating postion to take a child out on the water with you! It also provides a flat, stable surface for fresh water anglers to stand and sight cast to fish.


If you are after a kayak that can do-it-all and have all the latest features then the Viking Profish Reload may well be the fishing kayak for you!

Delivery

We offer a delivery service for the Viking Profish Reload throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.

 

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

 

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales

 

The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
