    Comments about NRS Angler Swivel Fishing Seat:

    Comfortable seat, but not at all sturdy enough. Broken 2 of these within 6 months. Need more reinforcement where the hinge is. The old NRS seats were much better. Hope this is fixed. I don't trust this seat anymore with the rear fishing frame.

    These are great passenger seats. The strap that holds the backrest down for traveling is easily torn off during normal river use. These things always seem to snag on something and rip right off of the screw that holds them in place.

      • NRS Angler Swivel Fishing Seat

        Q:

        I have an 18-ft squareback canoe with nearly flat (slightly contoured) plastic seats. Will your swivel seat fit on top of the plastic seat and if so how does it fasten?

          A:

          It fastens to a swivel plate with screws. Then the plate fastens to a mount
          on raft frame with short bolts and nuts. You might be able tk fasten seat
          to your benches with screws or the swivel plate to your benches with longer
          bolts.

        • VERIFIED BUYER

          A:

          Underneath the seat are two square metal plates with a set of circular ball
          bearings between them. One bolts to the underside of the seat, the other to
          NRS's standard pipe clamps to attach it to a raft frame.
          It would be pretty easy to get a secure mount that way -- I would be
          careful, though, that the finished seat didn't sit too high, upsetting the
          canoe's balance and stability, but also not so low that the seat corners
          would bang on the canoe gunwales when turning the seat.
          I also would check out the back support -- it might be fine, but the swivel
          seat back might lean back so far that it wouldn't be much support when
          actually paddling the canoe. It would still be there to lean against when
          taking a rest, fishing, etc.
          Hope this helps.

          i have two of these seats and they work great. They do have a free swivel metal connection on the bottom so i think based on what you are describing they should work. i have a picture that i took pre-installation of mine. hopefully that will help in your assessment
          Thanks and good luck,

          A:

          Hi, The seat bolts down with 4 bolts on the bottom plate. You would need to
          flatten your seat with plywood or washers, etc., to have a flat surface to
          bolt to. I'm not sure this is the best seat for a canoe. I think there are
          seats with fixed backs for canoes that clamp over existing seat (like
          stadium seats) and may be a better option.

          No way, definitely not a rower seat. Back is too high and hinge can not take constant abuse of backward leaning by rower.

          The Angler Seat is pretty tough but we do not recommend rowing from it in whitewater. If you were to reef back on the oars and fall back to get leverage you can break that hinge. Choose the padded rowing seats; they're bomber.

          This item was a gift along with the crossbar that turns upwards and has
          been used as a fishing seat. The seat is sturdy but I don't know if it
          would be the best choice for whitewater, even with a flat crossbar. I row a
          Hyside 10.5' with the low back padded seat which works great. I don't think
          I would use this seat for a primary rowing seat however it is built tough.
          Have used 5 times with no apparent wear from a fishing passenger.

          A:

          I've used it as a captain's chair on class I-II. It can't take repeated
          torque though on higher class water, when your body is bearing down between
          the foot bar and the seat back. That hinge isn't built for that in the long
          run.

          I would say most likely not. It is intended as a passenger seat only. I wouldn't feel comfortable using it as a rowers seat even in lower class whitewater.
          It is excellent as a passenger's seat, but the abuses of rowing whitewater  it wouldn't last long.

          Used with the NRS seat mounting kit on an NRS frame it is bomber. You can put your back into a good pull, on oars or a steelhead! But it is a SWIVEL seat so let that dictate how you use it.

          Reply to NRs,
          I would not use the seat in whitewater. Good chance of being thrown out
          of the cataraft in rough water. There is no safety for the user. The seat is low
          profile which is a problem. You have to modify seat with some web harness
          and quick release buckle. I use my NRS cataraft only on manageable waters..

          I am using this seat as a passenger seat on my frame. I have used one as a main seat before. Flipped in big water and went over a rock where the seat back broke off. I think it depends how big the whitewater. I surf a lot and put a lot of torque on the seat so I went back the the metal one for me.

          No. This seat is not strong enough to use as the rower's seat in
          whitewater. The thin plastic frame and swivel mount could break off in
          those conditions. Take a look at the NRS high and low back rower's seats.
          They are much more sturdy.

          Hi, I have 2 of these seats one in bow and one in stern. I use a fixed seat
          for rowing. IMO I would not use the swivel seat for rowing white water
          where you may need to really pull back on oars and want a solid brace/seat.
          Might just be me but I used to row from an ice chest seat and didn't like
          that there was movement.
