How low can they go?

i'm finding this difficult to believe but Anaconda are currently selling a brand new adult sized kayak for $199 folks. Ridiculous, bloody ridiculous.

Re: 1770

A few years backa mate and I camped there for a few days and we mooched around the mangroves in a beat up old Canadian. I managed my first and only Jack, using Mullet lookalike Berkley HB's (around 125 mm). It was obviously on a suicide mission because it simply jumped on and came home to daddy afte...

Re: Mirage drive copycat

That's an interesting comment from a Hobie owner about having to drop everything to paddle in reverse. Spare a thought for us poor old paddle fisho's who have to do this to go forward as well. LOL.

Re: Mirage drive copycat

C-Kayak are selling a new fin drive (as opposed to previously compromised propeller drive) pedal yak under the Pedalfish monniker. They, look suspiciously like Hobie knock offs in both hull and drive design, which suggests Hobie's mirage drive patent at least is no longer applicable. Interesting tim...

Re: One word .... IDIOTS

It's about time the authorities say started charging people like this and publicising the results for all to see. Obviously they aren't the sharpest knives in the drawer but a bit of a name and shame exercise might make others think about the consequences.

Re: Thermoform

Steve, even though it looks like your not to keen on the Hurricane Skimmer I can suggest you look again. I got one of the first 128's in the country and to say it's the best kayak I've owned is an understatement. I love it. Lightweight fast, stable and sexy. I have adopted the less is more philosoph...

Re: Brisbane newbie after first kayak advice

You'll get as many opinions as there are different makes and models out there so take this one with a grain of salt. 1. There's nothing wrong with the Chinese cheapies 2. Longer (3m plus) is always better than short (2.7m) 3. Forget the sounder for now and concentrate on the yak 4. Make sure you get...

Re: looking to buy a kayak

There are as many views on choice of kayak as their are kayaks, so please forgive me if this reply confuses you somewhat. I will start by disagreeing (with respect) to those who would advise you to avoid so called "cheap Chinese " kayaks. By far the majority of kayaks on the market these days come o...

Re: Biggest bream I've ever seen...

Nice one. There have been some particularly big breambos in that part of "the river" of late. And they tend to hang around the rock walls in quite shallow water.
