    Awesome. I just kayak fished 6 miles of a small river. Love it. Paddling lakes is great too.

    What year do you think this one is? I can’t find too much on it.

    Thanks!

    On my third! If you get the bug you’ll eventually end up with a hobie! Nothing else like them! I mostly fish the bayside but once in awhile will venture out front!

    We don’t all get comped yaks! And while that was my opinion that I “voiced” it’s a fairly common one. While there are tons of good yaks out there there is still nothing like the mirage drive. I loved my T140 but if it had a mirage drive I would have never got rid of it!

    It was tongue in cheek...I admire Hobie for what they have done. Without their pedal drive becoming so popular nobody else would have com out with them. But not everybody ends up with a Hobie. There are lots of good designs out there today. And pedals don't work for some people whether it is the cost or the area fished...I have some pedal drives and even motor drives but the rivers I fish require paddles.
