I'm looking for recommendations for a cart... I just bought an outback and don't really have another  $200 for a wheeleez so I have been looking on Amazon but I'm afraid to buy one that might not work. I have seen damage from the thru scupper carts and definitely don't want to go that route... any one have some advice it would be greatly appreciated

What kind of damage? Iíve used the Hobie scupper cart on my Hobie kayaks for years (Revo, Outback, ProAngler12.).

I was fishing in Trinidad last year and another guy took on water through rubs in the scupper from his cart... I don't know if he had to much weight or did something else wrong but it was something I wish to avoid..
 although soon either inspection I found my outback has sleeves to help prevent that

You can buy the wheeleez separately from the website. some fasteners and pvc or EMT conduit covered with pipe insulation or a pool noodle and you can DIY a pretty decent one.  Just don't run them through the scuppers. 

Or you can just buy a beach cart.  I think $200 is a pretty good price, isn't it?

Wheelez will last a LONG time and stand the test of time.
In the big picture it's cheaper in the long run and it works right the first time.

When I first got a Hobie, I thought it was insane to spend $200 more on a cart. So I tried a few DIY things, none of which worked. Wheeleez (or equivalent) is pretty much an essential item, IMHO.
It's all in the mind...

+1 for the C-tug.
Use it with my Stealth. Super easy to put together and load your kayak. Sort of understand the scupper concern but perhaps only when it was fully loaded with gear but it wasn't a big issue. (I could see the plastic bend ever so slightly) I haven't towed my yak across a good stretch of sand with the c-tug yet. I think the hobie cart would might out perform the c-tug in this regard. Who knows. Next time I see someone, I may pull up along side and compare.

Malone makes some that are cheaper if cost is an issue but I've never personally used one.
