I thought they wouldn't be in stores until Spring 2017.  I saw the updated pics on Native's website and Facebook page.  It looks fast.  I pedaled my dad's Slayer Propel 10, and wasn't too excited about its tracking, and speed.   If you're correct about the delivery date being soon, then I'm very excited.

It is my understanding that they are shipping now. I've seen a few posts about them on FaceBook.

I'm expecting to pick up mine this Saturday.  Will do a full review/walkthrough as soon as I can with lots of pics.

BMB, what state/retailer will you be purchasing your Manta Ray Propel?  I've looked online (Hook1, Appomatux, Get Outdoors, and Delaware Paddlesports), but they don't have it listed online yet.  I'm going to either trade in or sell my 2014 Jackson Cuda 12 in order to get the Manta Ray.  I'm very much looking forward to your review and walkthrough.  I can't wait to see your pictures.  Christmas has come early, this is awesome.

Mine arrived to Headwaters Kayak in Lodi, CA today, the truck was delayed a couple of days.  I plan to do a review and walkthrough as soon as I can but not sure if I will be able to get it on the water this weekend.  I believe at least one other dealer has theirs already, i saw it on Facebook.

Yes, deliveries to dealers are happening ahead of schedule. At Get Outdoors, our order should be in next week. The model isn't listed on the website yet but will be soon.

Is the retail price still $1,999?  Did Native make any changes to the production version compared to the prototype?  I couldn't spot any differences looking at pictures from a few months ago compared to what Native has on their website right now.  Bmb, what color are you getting?  Can't wait to see your pics.  Happy Thanksgiving everybody.

This morning I saw one dealer in Virginia that had the Manta Ray Propel 12 Angler listed on their website at $1999.  That should be the standard retail price from other dealers too.  The boat comes well equipped.  I have not used the Propel version yet, but have previously owned the paddle version of the Manta Ray 14, currently own the Manta Ray 11, and have also used the Manta Ray 12.  All of those kayaks are easy to move through the water.  The new Propel version should be a quick and seaworthy boat.  

 

Check out Native's website for specifications and a video  http://nativewatercr...el-angler-12/.

Any hindsight on more colors than the three dark camo patterns currently listed on their site?
A FB vid shows more solid, brighter colors.
Being visible while fishing NYC's waterways is the difference between making your catch or being it!

The brighter colors, orange, lime, blue camo will be available in the sister-brand liquid logic, without gear tracks and rod holders.
