Old Town Predator PDL vs Old Town Sportsman Big Water PDL

Same Award Winning Boat - Different Name.

Although there seems to be some confusion regarding these 2 high performance fishing machines make no mistake, they are the EXACT same boat with a re-branding under the new Sportman line. As Old Town has scaled their entire line sporting boats, they created a brand name across all models- the SPORTSMAN LINE, and the Predator, Topwater, and Ocean Malibu all have fallen into line.


BHO / OLD TOWN, on-water pro staffer "fireball" Jack Tibbens, has been winning tournaments aboard the Predator PDL for several years. He's made the switch this season to the Big Water and has never looked back!

If you love the Old Town Predator PDL don’t worry, the Old Town Sportsman Big Water PDL 132 is pretty much the same fantastic fishing platform. The only differences are the colors available, a new logo, new seat material with the same sturdy seat frame, and it comes with an Old Town tackle box.


Here is a great video by Ryan Lilly explaining the difference between all the legacy and Sportsman models of kayaks.
