Point 65 Tequila! GTX Solo Modular Kayak | Lime

 

Created by award-winning design engineer Magnus de Brito, the Tequila! GTX solo kayak is a fun, fast, versatile, and high-performance modular kayak. Due to its modularity, it is easy to break down for carrying, hauling, and storage. When broken down, it will fit inside most cars and can be stored in small places such as under your bed.

Like all of Point 65’s modular kayaks, the Tequila! GTX solo boasts revolutionary Snap-TAP technology – meaning the kayak snaps apart into a tail and nose sections, and re-assembles in seconds. The coolest part about this is that you basically have a solo and a tandem kayak in one! Bring someone along and snap in a middle section for a tandem kayak! Or bring the whole party and snap in several middle sections! The record so far is a 100-man kayak built by adding middle sections to the Tequila! Check out the “Videos” tab to see this happen!

The Tequila! GTX is incredibly safe, stable, and strong. It’s by far one of the most lightweight and fastest sit on top kayaks on the market. To complement its speed and stability is a tracking keel, which makes the Tequila! Paddle as straight as an arrow.

Point 65’s AIR seat makes the Tequila! super comfortable with its pneumatically adjustable backrest. The AIR seat is made of honey-comb patterned material in combination with mesh-like fabric, which is laminated and molded over EVA foam.  

The Tequila! GTX features dry seating, a cup holder, and molded multi-foot rests, and plenty of leg room - making it perfect for those lazy days drifting in the sun! It’s also designed to accommodate tackles, cooler, and other fishing necessities, making it a great fishing kayak!

Because of all of these amazing features, the Tequila! has received numerous prestigious awards for its innovative modular solution and design.

Tequila Purchase

Matt answered all my questions. Everything arrived on time and as promised. I would highly recommend Kayak Creek to others looking to buy their kayaks and supplies.

Amazing off the water, not fantastic on.

Doesn't track great, but very easy to transport and assemble.

Fun modular kayak!

Purchased both solo and tandem kayaks this summer---five pieces that can also be assembled into two solos (leaving out the middle section). Researched kayaks for months both online and in stores and tried several sit-in models in the water that were longer and a bit faster before deciding to go the extra mile, spend the extra money, and purchase this modular sit-on-top setup.

One of the obvious PROs is the ease of transport inside an SUV (can fit all five pieces with paddles, seats and PFDs in a Toyota Highlander SUV). This alleviates buying and mounting a roof rack every time you want to transport a kayak, combined with the lifting it up, getting it down and roping it to the car properly to secure it while driving.

To counter the person who complained about the boat breaking apart; one only needs to view any of the videos online, of which there are many including those on the POINT 65n website, which show that the recommended way to use the kayaks is to assemble the pieces at the water's edge and dissassemble them the same way, carrying the individual pieces to the car. The pieces overlap when they slide together and the straps just cinch them tightly once the two pieces have slid into each other. These are hard buoyant plastic pieces and very durable. The seats are comfortable, adjustable and the backs have air bladders that you can adjust to your liking.

The cons are the added weight and that the boats may not track quite as smoothly or paddle as fast as a longer sit-in version. However, they are very stable on the water and if purchased for recreational use on lakes and rivers, they are easy to maneuver and turn and are fun to use. Love that we have the ability to create a tandem boat just as easily as a solo boat, which has made it easy to take our two dogs with us or an extra paddler if we choose. It is easy to get in and out of the boat and the water. Though the cost is potentially more than buying a non-modular version, we have been pleased with our purchase thus far, and are hopeful the durability combined with the portability will be more conducive to getting out more often and enjoying this sport.

Why didn't I get one of these thirty years ago?

My husband had been thinking about getting a kayak for a couple of years. He has had several types of inflatable single person "boats" that have worked fairly well for him as far as fly fishing and fishing in general but now we have grandchildren and when they visit they like to fish. This modular kayak is just the ticket. When alone he can fish in the single configuration. When the grandkids visit they can go too. His comment is "Why didn't I get one of these thirty years ago!?" We can haul it in the back of the pickup or in our SUV. It is light enough to carry over fences. We really love it. More Crappie for dinner! I ordered this kayak when I saw the comfort features. He loves the inflatable back rest He did have to increase the padding for the seat as he is very thin but that was no problem.

Excellent, flexible design for casual kayakers

I love this thing! I have used it as single and double and it works great. The ratchet system to hold the sections together makes it easy (once you realize how to do it!) as a single mom taking 2 young kids out so time/simplicity matters! Feels very stable, harder to control as a tandem but that is what you should expect with something that long and at least for me, having only one paddler. Give me a few years when one is old enough to be useful with the paddles and I'll let you know how that is. Felt very solid with 5 year old in front and 3 year old in between my legs/lap. Only taken it to two calm lakes so can't speak to more than that but I love it and bought it for that.

I have a Toyota Sienna and was able to get all 3 pieces in with a kids solo kayak too but made for cramped quarters for the kiddos in back (slid seats up to the front). Will look at getting a roof rack and step stool for next year to handle one or two pieces or the two kid kayaks (whenever kid #2 can handle one on her own). Came as 3 boxes and they were big and well packed. I didn't think to inflate the back rests the first time and when I remembered to do it... wow, what a difference. Certainly not the cheapest on the market but for flexibility and convenience I am in love!

Great Service

Great company to deal with. Matt worked hard to work out the details of getting me a canoe to me while I was on the road.

He arranged for me to pick my Frontier 12 in Denver, then when the manufacturer couldn’t fulfill my paddle order, he found a paddle for me through a competitor and arranged for it to be delivered to my next destination.

Then...... when I decided to purchase a casting bar Matt again worked out the details of getting it to me while I was still traveling.

His service was definitely above and beyond what one normally gets from even companies that offer great service.

Thanks for all your hard work Matt! You helped make an incredible fishing summer!

Found What I Needed!

Owned many kayaks and the Flint is the most comfortable and customizable out there. If you fish or hunt this is the kayak for you.
