Today Wavewalk stopped offering the F model in the 500 series.
The W500 F featured two flush mounted rod holders, and it was an iconic product for almost a decade.
But flush mount rod holders are less popular these days, and our rotational molders asked us to make their job easier by simplifying our product line.
Years ago, Rox discovered the clamp mounted rod holders, and since then we’ve been advising our clients to use these detachable and versatile rod holders instead of the fixed flush mounted ones, and indeed, these days most of them do.
This advice has become more relevant in recent years, as a growing number of Wavewalk users outfit it with a motor, and no longer use the flush mount rod holders installed at the back of its cockpit, since rod holders and motors don’t go together well when they occupy the same place.
So, from now on, Wavewalk offers three kayak models: The W500 R, W700 R, and S4.
No more W500 F
We will keep offering the Tite-Lok clamp mount rod holders as an optional accessory with all our kayak models.
