JACKSON KAYAK INTRODUCES HIGHLY INNOVATIVE FLEX DRIVE SYSTEM

2017-Coosa-FD5

Jackson Kayak with Flex Drive System

SPARTA, TN (July 2016) – Jackson Kayak has designed a patent-pending prop-driven pedal system which allows for hands-free forward and reverse propulsion for kayaks. Named the Flex Drive, it consists of a daggerboard-protected tri-prop propeller which, combined with unique articulation of the prop system, gives the Flex Drive increased performance over other drives and helps keep the system clear of obstacles and easy to clean. Jackson Kayak’s Flex Drive System can quickly adapt from deep to shallow water navigation without having to move the main pedal drive unit.

The Flex Drive is easily deployed with the flip of a lever, has adjustable pitch prop blades and a 12:1 ratio. An interchangeable electric motor-driven head unit is in development as well for release at a later date.

“We wanted to develop a pedal system that addresses the real-world problems and needs of serious kayak anglers – problems like launching and beaching without having to move a cumbersome system; being able to push over obstacles; simple loading and unloading from car rack systems; versatility and flexibility for a wide variety of water conditions, etc. The Flex Drive solves those problems, and is an exciting new addition to the Jackson Kayak lineup of innovative solutions for kayak anglers,” explained Damon Bungard, Jackson Kayak Product Manager.

The first kayaks with this innovation will be the Coosa FD with an emphasis on kayak fishing and the versatile Cruise FD. Jackson Kayak’s Flex Drive system will roll out at Jackson Kayak dealers early 2017.

Clifton Highlands Golf Club Adds Innovative GolfBoards

PRESCOTT, WI (May 2015) – Clifton Highlands Golf Club is the first golf course in the area to make GolfBoards available to its patrons. GolfBoards are a high-tech version of an electric skateboard. Best New Product Winner of the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show, GolfBoards add a new level of fun and excitement to this sport rooted in tradition.

The easy to ride, lithium-ion battery powered transport speeds up the game, is very intuitive to operate, has less impact on the turf than a golf cart and allows golfers to ‘Surf the Earth’ in a way that feels similar to snowboarding, surfing, or skateboarding. Controlling the 4WD, posi-traction GolfBoard is easy and intuitive; golfers simply step up onto the board and, using either the wireless handheld controller or the on-board thumb-throttle, gently engage power to the wheels and away they go. Users are in full control of the speed and braking at all times, while movement side-to-side guides the steering. All it takes is a brief training session and GolfBoarders are off to the first tee!

“We’re proud to be the first course offering GolfBoards in our area,” explained Clifton Highlands Golf Club Manager Ryan Timm. “Clifton Highlands is bringing innovation to our course to attract more people to the sport and add a new element of fun for our avid golfers.”

Clifton Highlands GolfBoards rent for $25 for 18 holes and $15 for 9. Golf cart rentals are also still available for $16 per person. Call 715-262-5141 or toll-free 1-800-657-6845 or visit cliftonhighlands.com to reserve a tee time.

About Clifton Highlands

Minutes east of St. Paul, Minnesota, it has been a favorite of serious golfers for over 35 years.

The Highlands offers a premium facility, available to you, at a very fair price.

Challenging to both low and high handicappers, it’s a golf course that can be played day in and day out without tiring of its beauty. It is a fairly tight course with wooded areas, water and sand coming into play. The Highlands has enjoyed a 4.5 Star rating from Golf Digest Magazine for many years and has received accolades from local, regional and national writers. Come see why it’s said to be “One of Wisconsin’s Best.” For more information visit CliftonHighlands.com

About Golf Boards

Best New Product Winner of the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show, the Golfboard is an easy to ride, lithium-ion battery powered transport adding a new level of fun and excitement never before seen on a golf course. The GolfBoard speeds up the game, is very intuitive to operate, has less impact on the turf than a golf cart and allows golfers to ‘Surf the Earth’ in a way that feels similar to snowboarding, surfing, or skateboarding. Traversing from shot to shot across the golf course, however, has now taken on a whole new dimension of fun, action, and excitement.

The history behind the GolfBoard reads like a ‘who’s who’ in the sports, fitness, and technology world. The concept of a GolfBoard was formulated when self-described snowboard addict Don Wildman, founder of Bally Total Fitness, had the original idea to use an electric skateboard to ride the steep slopes of his local Malibu course as a fun way to ‘get in some turns’ during the summer months.

Wildman had the good fortune to befriend surfing legend Laird Hamilton while on a visit to Hawaii. A periodic golf partner to the Wildman when the ocean is too calm for surfing, Hamilton was interested in the concept and wanted to see this idea progress. Enter EV entrepreneur Star Faraon, a surfing friend of Hamilton’s who happened to have been forging the concept for an all-purpose and high performance electric mountain board. Faraon, with friends Paul Hodge (CEO) and Mike Radenbaugh (Technical Director), teamed up to develop a highly robust and rugged electric mountain board that, with the influence of Wildman and Hamilton, was refined into today’s safe and easy-to-use GolfBoard.

The existing 8” VaprTrek hunting boots, which are 40% lighter than traditional Irish Setter big game hunting boots without sacrificing support or stability, have become a favorite.

Underfoot comfort is enhanced with an anatomically-correct polyurethane and high-rebound foam footbed with a ScentBan™ odor inhibiting top cover. And a ScentBan lining delivers scent control through a process that kills odor-causing bacteria.

Irish Setter VaprTrek hunting boots incorporate UltraDry™ waterproofing so feet stay dry and boots stay breathable. A memory foam collar forms to fit the ankle for comfortable stability in the boot shaft. The Cushin™ Comfort Tongue offers long-lasting comfort in the shin area. A speed lacing system with one-tug tightening provides fast, snug lacing.

Print Orion 25

SPARTA, TN (March 2015) – Orion Coolers announces the release of the Orion 25. The Orion Cooler 25 is compact and highly portable for shorter outings and day or weekend use. It’s easily transported by canoe, car, kayak, SUPs and ATVs making it a great choice for outdoor enthusiasts, anglers, kayakers and hunters.  Perfect for small game or running to the grocery store, the Orion 25 retails for $369.

All Orion Coolers feature innovations unique to the premium, rugged cooler market:

  • Multi-color, camo plastic blend exteriors make every single Orion cooler unique. Pick from Forest Camo, Jungle Camo, Sky Camo or Dorado
  • YakAttack gear tracks allow for adding accessories without drilling. Add holders for fishing rods, phones, cups, cameras, fish finders, GPS and more with RAM accessory integration
  • Four aluminum tie down points at each corner that double as bottle openers and two additional tie down points on either side for secure transport
  • Low-profile, camming latches that are hinging for ease of use and snag-free when loading or using the cooler as a fly fishing casting platform
  • Lockable via padlocks on the corners, both to secure the cooler and to seal it shut
  • A grippy standing pad comes standard with all Orion Coolers providing a stable, comfortable platform when standing or sitting.
  • Strong, motorcycle-style carry handles with reinforced climbing ropes provide long lasting comfort and sure grip in tough conditions
  • MADE IN USA for quality craftsmanship and rugged construction. Orion Coolers are molded by molding experts right next to Jackson Kayaks in Sparta, Tennessee
  • Constructed with a rugged, roto-molded polyethylene shell and at least 2” of insulation  for durable performance
  • A solid thermoformed plastic tray inside the cooler allows for drainage but won’t let smaller items fall through like they would with standard wire mesh trays found elsewhere
  • A removable, Princeton-Tec AMP1 light, provides lighting inside the cooler at night or remove it for use around camp at night. This Made-in-USA waterproof light easily twists on and off and includes a flood lamp cone to illuminate the cooler contents with soft light. Remove the light and cone and you have a high power LED light for use around camp, on the boat or anywhere you need it. It also has a bottle opener on it.
  • Smart, real-world sizing accommodates common items like wine, 2 liter bottles or a case of cans that can stand upright. They also fit on common hitch haul carriers, behind a kayak seat and within airline baggage requirements (model dependent)
  • Available in three sizes – Orion 25, Orion 45 and Orion 65.

It’s easily transported by canoe, raft, truck, or even small planes and has the capacity for quartered big game, larger fish and/or food for a week. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price is $499.

“Ideal for day and weekend use, and easily transported by one person, the Orion 25 is the smallest and most portable model in the line, but still fully featured,” explained Brand Manager Damon Bungard. “The Orion 25 was designed to fit in the rear storage area of every Jackson Kayak fishing kayak, stand a 22 oz bottle vertically inside, or lay a 12 oz bottle on its side. It fits nicely in back seats, through car doors, and functions well as a stepping stool, compact casting platform, or seat on your SUP. By working with our team members, dedicated outdoorsman, and industry partners, we’ve developed coolers with unparalleled performance and innovative features to enhance the users’ experience, land or sea, no matter where in the world their adventures take them.”
