I know..! I know..! You’ve done your research and you’re itchin’ to order a Sea Eagle kayak. Either a FastTrack or maybe the Explorer or a PaddleSki kayak. Possibly even a Sea Eagle 330 or 370 but now you’re wondering which seat is the most comfortable and the least hassle. When Crystal and I use any Sea Eagle kayak we choose the option group the includes the inflatable Deluxe Kayak Seat as shown in this picture Here’s why…….
It’s all about the seats!
Sea Eagle has two option groups for the Sea Eagle FastTrack, Explorer, or PaddleSki Premium Kayaks. The entry level Deluxe Option Package includes two Deluxe Kayak Seats while the Sea Eagle Pro Option Package includes blackTall Back Seats. The Tall Back Seats found in the Pro Option Package provide roughly the same back support as the grey inflatable Deluxe Kayak Seat but are difficult to rig and and prone to collapse if not rigged correctly. We use and recommend the less expensive, and softer, Deluxe Kayak Seat. We also feel the paddles offered in both Deluxe and Pro Premium Level Kayaks to be a push in spite of the advertising hype. The Bow and Stern kayaks bags included in Pro Options Groups are not waterproof stow-bags and smallish. You’ll need some waterproof dry bags anyway so save your money and buy the Deluxe Option Package!
But I’m ordering A Sea Eagle 330 or maybe a 370 Sport Kayak. Which option Group should I choose?
Now it gets a little confusing so stay with me.
When Crystal and I use a Sea Eagle 330 or 370 kayak we choose the Pro Package. Here’s why…….
It’s still about all the seats!
Sea Eagle has two option groups for the Sea Eagle 330 and 370 Kayaks. The entry level Deluxe option package includes two SEC Canoe Seats while the Sea Eagle 330/370 Pro option group includes these new Jet-Boat Bucket Seat (Sea Eagle calls them Deluxe Kayak Seats to confuse you). The SEC Canoes Seats found in the Deluxe Option package provide very little back support. We would never consider a day on the water with the SEC Canoe Seats. Buy the comfort..buy the Pro package with the Deluxe Kayak Seats!
We really like these DKS Seats for all our kayaks.
So to recap.
- Ordering a Sea Eagle FastTrack, Explorer, or PaddleSki? Order the Deluxe Package.
- Ordering a Sea Eagle 330 or 370 Sport Kayak? Order the Pro Package
We really like these DKS Seats
You can even use the Deluxe Kayak Seat on the beach as Crystal (right) and Connie (below) discovered.
