I've been thinking of going peddle, and the price point and abilities of this kayak seen great.  I've been reading into it, but was hoping for some real pros and cons from some of you guys.  Anybody take out in the bay? Landed big fish from it? I'm hurting for a peddle drive, just not ready to drop 2500$+

Bummer, just sold my team 2017 Hobie Outback for $2300.  That's not quite $2500, is it?
Lemon in the wound my friend..lol

i rented one for the day i liked it compared to my revo13, the rudder dose take some fidling, it is as fast as the revo, the seat is awsome, and standing up and peeing is the greatest, i like to open bow, now you have to stay out of the weeds for sure it will ball up bad, and the instant reverse is great too, i would say over all great

Deciding to either buy a pilot or a compass...hmmm.

Conundrum.

Any thoughts on the two?

Your more than welcome to come demo my pilot. It's been great so far, and for the price for a peddle drive it's great.  Putting it together was a bit of a chore,  the drive needed some fiddling to allow out to easily go from zero drag to deployed and its a bit loud  sometimes when peddling. No real hull storage Which makes storage and modifications a bit hard. The rudder is stiff and could use work.. and as all have said the rod holders are useless. I'm putting some yak attacks in their place.  But that's just the cons, in my opinion the pros still out weigh.  It tracks well, quick, light,  great layout,  easy to paddle, the drive is solid cast aluminium and holding up great with the salt,  and affordable!  And I'm 6' 4" and still comfy enough to put 7 mi down on the Napa river with a rod in one hand and a beer in the other! Let me know if you ever want to give it a whirl.

There is a pilot owners group on Facebook. I highly recommend joking it as there is some great info on it. As far as the pedal noise, most of it can be alienated from putting an extra washer on the main pin that holds in the pedal unit. The washer takes up the tiny bit of play that causes the pedal to move while dealing. The slight movement is what causes the noise.
