Old Town Sportsman Salty PDL 120 Kayak Review: Perfect Pedal Kayak for Coastal Fishing

Let’s take a closer look at the Old Town Sportsman Salty PDL 120 in this kayak review. Old Town’s PDL drive, with pedal forward or pedal reverse, is marvelously simple, extremely durable technology that’ll change the way you look at kayak fishing. Among the company’s new Sportsman models featuring PDL drive is the Salty PDL 120, a versatile and well-equipped model.

The Salty, as the name implies, is well-designed and outfitted for coastal adventures, but equally at home on slow rivers or big lakes.

It’s a big rotomolded kayak at 12 feet, just over 34 inches wide, and with that comes stability but also some heft. The 19-pound drive module is easily removed for transport, dropping the weight to a solo-manageable 85 pounds.

The hull has a wave-cutting forward vee that tracks nicely and glides through chop. It comes with two 18-inch accessory tracks, adjustable seat, universal transducer mount and spacious tankwells fore and aft. Also include are two aft-facing flush mount rod holders and one forward-facing rod holder, custom tackle box, and EVA foam deck padding for secure standup fishing.
