Hi, I'm new on here, but not so new to the kayak fishing game
I've recently fallen in love with the hobies. I am fascinated by their well thought out designs and am certainly going to get a hobie very soon. Unfortunately like others, I am torn between the sport and outback. At 5 foot 8 and 60 kilo's I have been told that the Sport is a better option. However, while the lightness and maneuverability of the sport are qualities that will serve me well, I am concerned about speed and stability. I basically want a yak that can get me to those fishing spots relitavely quickly and I would like to be able to stand up and cast at times as I have become quite skilled at been able to do this on yaks that aren't so stable
although at times have suffered the conseqences
I have been told that there is little speed difference between the 2. However at 60 kilo's i think i would get quite a lot of free board with the outback. Would this make the speed difference more substantial, enough to be concerned about? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I would hate to buy the wrong one and regret it. Cheers!
