I recently demo'd a Cuda14 and Slayer14. They are both very stable standing, the slayer is slightly more stable. Fella next to me was maybe 210#, struggled to stand on the cuda, not on the slayer. I'm 165#, and the cuda was very still. Storage and setup is very different. The cuda is more modular/strategic/functional, by which I mean, covered storage, ram mounts, rod stagers, tip covers, tackle notches, center hatch. The slayer is simpler, like a sit on top (self-bailing) canoe, by which i mean massive amounts of storage but only in two major compartments, organization up to the user. The cuda "shows" you where to store things. Lastly I think you will have to rivet anything to the slayer, as the hull is less accessible. The cuda allows rivets/bolts if you desire. I would say most everything else is comparable.
I ordered the cuda, and it should be here within a few weeks.
