From a FOG's perspective
Handling on ground - Slayer. Speed - Cuda "appears just a little faster (subjective)
Stability - Primary - Slayer is better Secondary - about the same (both are very fishable, some people, not me, stand and fish from both) Seat position, In High position, Cuda sits about 2 inches higher than Slayer, in low position, Cuda seat is about 5 inches further aft than Slayer.
THE SEAT- Slayer seat is without a doubt, the best seat in the industry!!!. Cuda seat is better than any "deck level" seat I've seen.
Out of box -Cuda 12 has everything you need and it all works well, Well done Jackson!!!
Slayer 12 can be brought up to level of Cuda 12 with lots of add-ons and work.
I sold the Cuda 12, I FISH the Slayer 12. Reason "THE SEAT, THE SEAT, THE SEAT!!!
As I said, I am FOG, and I have the aches & pains, bad back, knees, and sore "butt" to prove it.(bad nerves in my "behind end" from sitting to many years). Young Guys don't laugh, The Sins" of your youth will catch up to you in "pain" Sitting, fishing, for 5 hours, THE SEAT
