Well.... I went in to Anaconda today, I wasnt going to even go in, but Jill needed help chosing some snorkeling gear. Anyway, I thought I would just go say hello to Angelo the italian manager of the watersports section at Everton Park. Angelo recognised me straight away as we had talked for about half hour last time I was in there looking at kayaks. At that time they only had perception yaks(mostly SIKs and one swing), and a bunch of the cheapy seabreezes and stuff. I mentioned that these yaks didn't offer a lot of range for the kayak fisho and he seemed very keen to hear more, sheesh, he sucked every bit of info out me that I had to give and I left thinking, yeah yeah, another salesman who claims to want to provide for a growing market. I couldnt beleive my eyes when I say the OKs on a rack, 4 colours of scupper pro and all 3 prowler sizes, all looking sexy as. I had to mention how awesome they looked to Angelo and how great a price that was on the scupper. I certainly wasnt planning on putting a kayak on the shopping list, but he explained to me that current stocks will not last and when they are gone, the next shipment will see the price go back to RRP and he wouldnt be able to offer anywhere near the 899 mark. Next came 'the clincher', Angelo says to me "What paddle do you have now?" (We had talked long about paddles last time I was there and he knew I was desperate for a decent paddle) "standard quantum" I says. The hook was set, and I was as good as in the net. "$950 and I will throw in any paddle you like, which one do you like?" shows me their large range, including the perception paddles and I finally decided on 'simply magic' fibreglass paddle in white to match my pale grey scupper pro, a quick swipe of the CC and I'm almost a new DAD! We've started thinking of names already, but we don't want to get too excited just yet. Oh boy, whoops, I havnt even named the Espri yet. hmm, will have to think on that. Anyway, how awesome is that?! Damn, I want it now.
