I would highly recommend you try it first.

I agree, I have beating up the local dealers to find out when they come in. They all say hopefully this month and Jackson echoes this sentiment.   

We will see.

I agree, you need to try it out. And the other pedal drives on the market too.

I have tried alot of the pedal drives. I have two issues with all of them.
1. Drives in beaching and shallow situations.
2. Length of boat.

Most of the pedal drives except Hobie Revo 16/AI are short boats and I like the how longer boats track and the stability the provide in big chop.. 

The other big issue for me is pulling up the drive. If I can do without having to pull it up then the better for me.

I do agree with all the points here, try every boat you can before buying. I have tried more than a few.

I had my Radar 135 in 8-10' @ 7 secs with 3-5 foot cross swell and it was rock solid. I was peeing off it like I was on flat water.

My Tarpon 160 is rock solid too, but not to pee off of in those conditions.

If the tarpon had a pedal drive that would be 💰.

It's a different hull design than the original coosa and the coosa HD. Just carries the coosa name

I believe CCK has one? I know they had one for their demo day recently.

Hmm I wonder what shop it is at, they were trying to call the Jackson rep because they were not sure if it was going to be in Sac last weekend.

I will give them a call again.

It was at the demo day last Saturday but was not a shop boat.  I believe it belonged to their rep.  That's why Rob and I recommend folks test a production version, as we both rode it last weekend, but I don't know if that was a production boat or not.  I couldn't get over the rather useless reverse.  Everything else was "ok".
