The Predator Kontiki has been engineered since 2005 by Fishtex, a sister company of Waltex set up to manufacture and distribute the innovative long line torpedo. Initially they offered a 30lb motor thrust, then 44lb and 54lb Predator options were added in 2009 in response to a demand for more powerful motors. We think you’ll find Fishtex is the best fishing kontiki company.
2010 saw the development of the striking shark body design by the design team at Predator Kontiki. The auto navigation system (Auto Nav) was created and added to the unit in 2013, giving it a clear and clever advantage by enabling it to maintain a true course out to sea.
The Predator’s unique design, natural shape and tail fin are designed to sit low in the water and dive through and even under heavy breaking surf. The Predator is incredibly easy to use and it’s also light, weighing from only 12kg including batteries.
Fishtex is dedicated to delivering the highest quality product and that’s backed up by superior service and the Predator carries a two-year product warranty.
Assembled in Ashhurst, just outside Palmerston North, the Predator is put through rigorous testing before it’s dispatched, ensuring each valued customer gets maximum quality and value.
The Predator is in all respects a kiwi original, designed and made in New Zealand and available at leading retailers. With hundreds of satisfied customers and growing worldwide demand, the Predator is set to sail even further in the future.
