Re: Braid line chinese copies

I bought what I thought was 100 metres of 10 pound braid from Big W. It looked good on the spool instore, but when I placed it on the spool, it was only 25 metres. Ok so I was disappointed to say the least but in true Big W tradition they didn't believe me! We have two stores in our town that sells...

Re: Bit of a rescue needed - New Years Eve

Bottom line is no matter what kayak you have, or your level of experience, you have to be prepared one day to find yourself on a leaking kayak, and you may be out of sight and too far to swim anywhere. Even off a shoreline that is either to rough to land on, or inaccessible due to tides. Always have...

Re: How low can they go?

At 2.6m long, the money you save will be able to buy an extra bunch of flowers for your funeral after you have gone and drowned yourself. Lets be honest this is nothing but a kids toy. Anaconda dont sell expensive quality kayaks simply because the sell through rate is not there, and the logistics of...

Re: Pill Bottles

Used to use them as mini sinker/burley pots in fresh water. The ones with the secure lids on. Sinker inside of lid with hole for the line through cap, then pack 'em with concentrated burley which filters out through holes drilled in side. Then when you cast them in being on the end of your line they...

Re: Replacing mesh on vantage seat

Thats the going rate for a replacement mesh panel anyway, not sure they were doing anything special for you.

My seat bottom is starting to tear after 2 1/2 years and up for much same cost for mesh panel alone

Re: Anyone looking to sell their Stealth Fisha or Profisha?

Re: Eco Amush kayak

superceded model that was renamed, and also lots of different branded imported variations on this. if you can't find original specs then compare to the similar ones, should be much the same. Just make sure you choose a model of same length as the copies were made in various length.

Re: plastic kayak alternative to a stealth ?

I dont think the rotomold process can hand internal storage designs line the profishas.

A hobie revo 16 is longer and narrower than the the vikings or prowlers, with a stealth type nose to punch through rather than over waves. You can pedal or paddle it.

Re: hobie killer

Probably still be $1000+ cheaper than Hobie. Even allowing for freight and exchange rate. $1500USD compared to $1950USD for a hobie compass (in the US), which is probably the comparable unit Falls in between the top end pedal drive kayaks and thoise el cheapo ones. So it depends if the quality suit...

Re: Braid line chinese copies

Good for general run of the mill bait fishing, had some on my reels that have lasted a few years without any unexpected failures. Tend to be thicker and not as smooth as quality stuff so you will get less on a reel and casting wont be as smooth/distance/accurate so if you are a precision lure fisho ...

Re: Any Advice ?

x2 for value on that prowler, though a 4.1 or 4.5m with also do the job. One issue with big blokes on small yaks is the lack of length/bouyancy behind you so they are easy to tip just reaching behind or with an unexpected wave/wake etc. 13 foot/4m is generally considered good allrounder size. Must f...
