Can someone post the actual measured weight of his/her Rev 11 and sport? I was at a local dealer and lifted both boats. Rev 11 seems quite a bit heavier than the Sport. More than the published difference...

Please weigh it without the the mirage drive, paddle and seat. I found it more accurate to weigh an odd-shaped object by grabbing the boat and standing on the scale. Then weigh myself without the boat and do the math. Thanks.

hmmm this should be interesting. I had the Sport and upgraded to the Revo11. The Revo 11 feels easier to carry, but I dont know if its because its lighter, better balanced, or easier to hold because of the dedicated handles on each side. They are both very capable, compact kayaks.

2014 Sport 52.5 # (new hull design)
2011 Sport 54 #

All weighed both ways (boat only and me holding them) on my scale. Hulls clean, dry and empty. 8)

:lol: :lol: Just a few. Anytime I get to test or try a demo boat, I try to get an actual weight and dimensional measurement to compare with the published figures. I've been working on a review for the new Sport and have the data on my old Sport (which my wife made me sell to make room the the Revo 11), so this was an easy question to answer. 8)

A comparo between the old sport and the new sport should be pretty good!

Thanks roadrunner. I am interested in knowing the difference between the two also.

I just bought a 2011 sport and have not taken it out to water yet. I tried both Rev 11 and Sport at a local demo event. It was a breezy day. The speed from my GPS on both boats are about 3.0 - 3.5 mph. No huge difference. When I stop pedaling , the breeze can push Rev 11 out of position a lot faster than the Sport. Being a fisherman, holding a boat in position is very important.

I am 5' 8" and 150 lbs. I sit well in either of the boats. I also tried Rev 13 that day. While it can go 4+ mph effortless, it is too big for me and I am sitting too high on it.

Happy kayaking!


Scott
