Got my 2011 pro angler wet this morning. My first kayak, I had a lot of deliberation over the last year on what to buy, pretty happy with my choice. I told myself I would go out with an empty boat the first time to get a feel for it, but I threw in a rod & reel at the last minute, couldn't resist.
Within 2 min I was comfortable enough to break out the rod and start throwing at the bait schools. No results, but then they call it fishin not catchin.

Took about an hour to settle on a seating slouch level and pedal setting. I am sure it will change often for a bit. I was very pleased with how easy it was to adjust and readjust.

The stability was excellent, I later traded off with a buddy who brought his tarpon, and promptly flipped o er due to my expectations from the PA. Got some chuckles for that.

You will be really happy with the PA in the long run. Practice standing up in it. Being able to sight fish in the PA is amazing. Almost like cheating. Have fun.
