There’s no doubt that people are attracted to the standup bar on the new Jackson Kayak Big Rig. The colapsable assembly makes it easier to keep ballance when standing on a kayak. Recently a fellow Jackson Kayak Fishing Team member, Sean Brodie, made one for his beloved Jackson Cruise. Following his instructions, anyone can build one of these for their kayak too, regardless of make/model.
Check out the How-To on his blog, Canepole Adventures: How to Make a Fishing Lean Bar for the Jackson Kayak Cruise.
Once I get my new kayaks in, a 2014 Cuda 14 and Coosa, I’ll see if I can’t get some good measurements that will allow me to use the same bar on both kayaks. I think I might be able to find this feature quite usable.
Thanks, Sean, for the write-up on this great modification!
