Big Rig

Big Rig The name of this kayak, Big Rig, sums up exactly what it is intended to do and for whom it was intended to do it for - big stability for the many anglers that deserve a model to help them feel comfortable in a smaller watercraft, and even allow them to stand and fish from one! If this kayak was much wider we might have to call it a boat, but our design team kept it at just the right specs to allowing the Big Rig to maintain the performance of a kayak with the stability of a boat. They also crafted the hull for reliable, efficient performance in most kayak fishing situations - lakes, ponds, rivers, inshore saltwater bays or marshes - so no matter where you go the Big Rig is ready to make you feel comfortable there!

    I like the big rig but not the camo colors. If I ordered one could I get it in a solid color?

    To the Jackson team

    We went out today to demo the big rig and coosa boats because for a year now I have been drooling over the big rig since I first came across the web site. I went through check out wilderness, hobie, old town, and feelfree and a few other lower models, time and time again I came back to the Jackson site and looked read and watched all your vids I could find. My wife bless her said that they cost to much 🙂 you get around that by watching the vids she then wanted one but after we took them out today and tried them out for a couple of miles she is hopelessly hooked 🙂 now theres now way she would pass this up and it was the Big Rig that sold her ive been pushing it but after she got to try this out in clear lovely water she was sold. You have made a wonderful product my next buy is to get a go pro camera so we can shoot this husband and wife team, we cannot thank you enough for all the thought put into your kayaks they were everything I hoped for and more we are buying 2 of them this week.

    Dennis and Lynn Unger

    How much extra is it on top of the price if you want custom colors and how long does it take?
