    You can't go wrong with hobbie. I'm sure it probably the best

    I have a buddy that has an extra Hobie kayak that I get to use a few times a year mostly for koke fishing in Lake Tahoe. Thoose Mirage drives have been around for a while and are great! Hands free fishing means less lost fish especially while trolling. This is probably a bias post because the Hobie has been the only kayak I've ever been in. Good luck!!

    Having run the Hobie pedal system for several years now, I would highly recommend. I would be Leary of any pedaling system that is fixed. The nice thing about the hobie, is when you get into shallow water, you can split your pedals which bring the propulsion fins up flat against the bottom of the kayak and then you can use your manual oar/paddle without having a problem of hitting bottom against rocks, logs, etc. A little pricy, but a quality pedal kayak.

    My cousin is looking into the radar. Me personally I would spend the extra and probably get Jackson. I'm still a paddler myself but I will take the plunge sometime to peddle. And my choice would be Jackson or hobbie with ever I find the best deal on a used one. Not a lot of kayakers on the sniffer I would say try out NCKA forums for a world full of information from kayakers who know and own just about every kayak made.

    Wilderness Systems Predator 115

    Curious in here if anyone has 1) used Wilderness Systems kayaks 2) has a Predator 115. Im trying to find a really versatile kayak to start out , money isnt a huge issue (just might take me a bit longer to save up to get the right one :)) and this is what I am leaning towards.

    From the research I have done, given it was built to be a good paddler but also has the ability to throw in a pedal drive and or Motor really entices me. But then again, for the price of the pedal drive at about $1K, why not just purchase a straight pedal driven, well respected kayak for only a couple hundred more?
