Full Carbon Stealth Fisha 460

#1 Post by mehi » Sat Dec 26, 2015 7:03 pm

Ok Guys and Girls I picked up my new Full Carbon Fisha 460 Christmas Eve. First impression WOW this ski looks good
then I picked it up nearly threw it to the roof 20kgs This weapon is light

Today was my 1st chance to paddle it, Stealth have nailed the design on this one having previously owned an evo 465 you notice the changes
as soon as you sit in it . You sit lower in the seat giving you even more stability.
The Stealth website I think they say old hull only supercharged this is an under statement touch the rudder and it turns on a dime,
the speed difference was notable, I haven't paddled for at least 4 months and could get the ski up to 12km without much effort.(fitness level nonexistent)
Although I didn't take it out in the surf I did have some fun riding the wake of some pretty big cruisers the ski was very responsive
Anyone looking to get into Glass I can highly recommend the Fisha 460 Stealth have got this right

Have fun on the water guys

Lovely colour scheme there Dave and good for keeping the whitey biters away they've recently realised with science the stripes , true story apparently the don't like the contrast in colours because in nature that means warning keep away , so I thought that'd be nice to know .

I'll bee curious to see your views on the nature of carbon down the track 6 , 12 months when the new boat novelty has worn off . I found there were certain characteristics of the material I didn't like , the tinny sound going over big swell slapping down , the twitch in the hull due to increased stiffness in the material . So I returned to glass and have never looked back , but that could all be related to personal taste , paddler ability I dunno , I'm a fisherman first followed a distant second by kayaker someone with better skills may not be disturbed by those things .

Either way , I hope you have lots of pimping fun , fish blood , good loving :wink: I threw that in to see if you were listening :lol:

Cheers mate

Hey mate hope you had an awesome xmas
The colour scheme yes you are correct that was the Idea behind the stripes, pimping this one is staying completely stock exept for 2 extra rod holders and the stainless rod bar inside the hatch(same as the profisha)
The reason for going Carbon was to get it as light as possible I'm not getting any younger(did I mention 20kgs) plus the extra speed I was hoping to get with extra stiffness in the ski
which I believe I have achieved by going down this track, I was also after extra responsiveness which I have no doubt this ski has( this may also be the fact they have removed the skeg
It will be interesting to see what happens when the novelty of a new boat wears off, but I'll have to live with that, as for blood inside the hatch, I'm a catch and release type of guy wouldn't want to get it dirty :cry: As for good loving that started when I sat in it this morning and took the first stroke :grin:
Have fun mate see you on the water when I get it all sorted

Dave looks good mate.

Re your comments above, you may not be getting any younger, but now, you will always be barred up when on the stealth.

Looks like a hot-rod. I've been curious for a few yrs as to what these beasts are like to paddle. It'd be a bit different to one of my hobies. :grin:

Yeah Mate, carbon is probably worth the extra would help me throw it on the roof. The misses thinks I am dreaming though. Hope the foot holds up and Monday I will see you out there.
