I guess one way you could think of it is like this: in all the time I've been reading this forum or another, while non-owners constantly and primarily complain about the weight of the Pro Angler, I've never heard or seen one Pro Angler owner complain about not being able to stand up and fish, not having enough rod holders, or about not having enough storage room for gear. Nor have I heard a PA owner complain about being able to propel the kayak and fish at the same time.
There's no one kayak out there that will satisfy every individual's needs. That's why we all modify or rig them a little differently. While some might argue whether the PA14 (or even the PA12) is a kayak or not, I firmly believe that every PA owner will agree that the positives far outway the negatives.
I haven't seen any PAs for sale where the owner stated they were selling them to buy a different kayak. It makes a great starting platform and fishes just fine without modification. But we all like to tinker and modify...right? Just a few thoughts from a happy PA owner!
