I have paddled the Cuda and it was so-so for me, Don't like the deck lay out and with little options for rigging . Of course I am also a die hard Native fan, my next yak will be the slayer. These are some of the reasons for my opinion.
Cuda vs. Slayer
Cuda, pro: the only thing I really like about the Cuda is the center storage. This will be great for accessing your hull storage when on the water, you can actually get your rods in there.
Cuda , Con: there is very little flat surfaceses in the right locations for custon mounting the gear I use in my fishing trips.
Slayer, Pros: plenty of rigging options, open flat deck, front storage open to easy access while on the water. Native claims that it is a fast stable yak which is almost a paradox as far as yak's go.
Slayer, cons: No inside hull storage, This is not a problem for me as I the only thing I need inside the hull is a transducer and battery for the depth sounder. every thing else is just to my taste.
Just my opinion, however I believe that the quality of the slayer excedes the Cuda any day, in fit and form. I recommend that you do your research and test before you buy...You want to be completly satisfied with your investment.
Good luck in picking the right yak for you.
