How did your bum feel after being in the Outback for and extended period time . Do you notice if your knees are up as high as your chest or does it just look that way ? I notice the Pro angler seat you seem to set a little high then the pedals I'm sure it's the position of the seat .
Did you get the turbo fins on the Mirage Drive ?
Yes cost and weight are both really high on the list . But I'm looking at buying and keeping for a long time , No matter which I go with .
My rearend started to get a little sore after about 5 hours each day. I'm going to look into some kind of pad for the seat. Don't know if I'll go with the Hobie version or another.
My knees were up kind of high, but not uncomfortable. I put the pedals in the last hole for the longest setting, but then the left pedal would hit the inside of the hull at full extention which would make a thump sound...I was fishing pretty shallow, so I didn't want to be transmitting that noise to the fish around me.
I have standard fins, might get turbo fins later. It seems plenty fast right now; I'm sure that will change the first time I fish with someone with turbos, especially if they are in a Revo or Adventure.
Edit Add: I plan on keeping mine for a long time also. Will be buying another kayak for my daughter as soon as finances allow.
