My venture into the Hobie we world was a failure for me . But it was my doing not the boats .

When I originally demoed the used Revo 13 I wasn't excited about its weight but with a Rhino lift system manageable and with the loss of some strength on my right using the drive had me fired up and was doable since paddling wasn't as efficient as I liked

My injury is L4-L5-S1 and has affected my right side .

The problem came after use my lower back and right side would get aggravated  over time and took longer to settle each trip, So I would constantly adjust seat height , peddle distance  to no avail .

It would be OK but as my lower back would get aggravated lifting it when not using the lift wasn't fun .

I got so frustrated I sold off damn near all my kayak gear .... Over time obviously I'm going at it with the Eddyline at 50# I have to paddle again and be realistic and diligent about when , where , who  and conditions I can.handle

That all said it's kind of my dream that  a manufacturer  come up with a lite rig with a different pedal motion than Hobie ala Nativr or Old Town and or Wildy and by lite I'm talking  55# max

But that doesn't seem to happening and honestly I missed paddling I felt I was sort of cheating

Native and Hurricane have pretty light ones.

Mine will be in the mail tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.

I will take the Scotty extender, but I do not know about delivery. Not worth shipping. Maybe express with someone?

I finally got to use mine until it died. I ran it 5-6 hours on Saturday and 5-6 hours on Sunday. Iím running an older 5 inch humminbird black and white unit.

Mine went from 6am till about 7pm when it died. HB Grey scale too.

I think it is really cool that the Vibes have design features from many different high end kayak companies. I guess they could not design something on their own.

An email says I am right where I should be.

Stampede is good for Kokes right now. Mocks there too.

hi everyone. I've never kayak before and looking to pull the trigger on a used wildy 135 with pedals.  I am limiting myself to used units so if i decide kayak is not for me, i could move it on after a while. I plan to bass fish with it, mostly on the california delta and I am 5' 10" and 170lbs so slim built. Wondering other than the prop nut falling off, are there any major first generation design issues i should be weary of? welcome folk's on water experience!
There are really no design issues at all. Even the prop is not an issue if tightened correctly. I can show you how. Mine has hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of miles on it and has never come loose. I do not even have lock tight on it. The only difference in the boat is that the new one comes with 3 sets of rudder tubes vs the original that had two. You can run the rudder control on the left or the right very easy. The third lines are for the foot control rudder if you got that.

Pro Staff alert-Yes I am a affiliated with Wilderness Systems.

The Radar 135 is a good all around pedal kayak. If you are fishing weedy areas it is a pain though. So is any prop boat. You can fish Delta, lakes, and the ocean in it. You can stand very easily in it to fish. It is a bit heavy like most kayaks today. As far as on your car. I used to put my Tarpon 160 on  a Subaru Outback. Just hangs off both ends, but who cares. The Radar won't hang off nearly as bad. Loading it just put a blanket on the back of the car and you won't damage the car putting up on racks. If you have any questions at all feel free to get in touch with me. If you don't get that used Radar let e know where it is. I know someone looking for one.

Paddle kayaks are lighter and cheaper. That is u to you. If you would like to try one out we may be able to hook up depending on where you live and if our schedules all work together. I can bring a couple different options pedal and paddle. All Wilderness of course. You should try some out for sure no matter what the brand.
