So here it is straight out of the packaging.....
Starting at the bow: A large D-ring and sturdy toggle handle. Slightly back from this is a drainage plug
My thoughts so far: black looks awesome and super stealthy, the tempo looks very fast - the kayak is light for its length and narrow. The build quality is fantastic as it is on my Abaco. Its a paddlers fishing kayak so compromises have been made to on-deck storage. Other accessories found on the more fishing orientated kayaks, such as slide rails and the centre hatch on my Abaco, are not included. This is not a bad thing because this is what keeps the kayak light and fast. This kayak will be for when I'm going to be doing more paddling than fishing and for the marks i fish that require long and difficult walks to get to, and from, the launch spot.
The RTM Luxe seat also seems a light, comfortable lower back rest and will be a great addition to my Tempo and Abaco.
So now i have 2 very nice kayaks: one designed predominantly for fishing, an angler fishing kayak, and one designed predominantly for paddling, a paddlers fishing kayak. That should cover all the fishing i will be doing in the UK from difficult long distance offshore fishing to easy inshore marks.
