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.

Kayak fishing isn't a sport. It's much more serious than that.

At only 660wide its very narrow for a sit on top kayak. Wouldn't be my choice.

yes & no mate agree most are crap Chinese plastic but they stock the "RTM Tempo" not the angler version (very similar to the DAG MIDWAY my main fishing kayak a great all rounder) & the "RTM Disco Fisher" a livelier (more manoeuvrable tippier strange they stock this as fishing version but not the Tempo) just saying 2 tried & tested paddles.

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 handling and storing long kayaks makes it not worth it for the type of stores they are.
