the time has come to get a proper kayak for inshore work, and whilst settled on a Stealth, I am torn between a Supalite x or an evo 430
Chasing opinions on what would best suit me, and the fishing I intend to do from it.
I weigh 78kg, am 5.8ft tall,i have not done a great deal of paddling.as ive used a hobie revolution
The yak will be used for surf launches, and within a few kms of shore (depending on how my confidence builds as I get better).
Fishing will be by trolling lures, and then dead bait fishing when I am in need of a break from paddling. Intending to target tuna, mackeral, or anything else that will take trolled lures or dead baits.im not sure on the supalite speed for trolling lures,
The Supalite x looks like it would suit what I am after perfectly, but it's lack of speed (7/10) compared to the evolution 430 (9/10)
i dont want to make a mistake and buy the wrong kayak for myself,as i cant affort to buy another yack its just the hobie revolution kayak
doesnt cut it for me it has alot of down falls for offshore and surf launches,and is slow robust sluggy..also takes on alot of water..
Would appreciate any info from guys who have tried these kayaks, or would care to advise on which one may be most suitable.
