Are there any dealers in Indiana where you can demo kayaks ? I bought a 2015 Jackson Cuda 12 from Wildcat creek outfitters. I'm really happy with the purchase and they were really nice people. I would have liked to been able to compare it with the Coosa and some other brands.
Thanks

Looks like Fluid Fun has the store front to demo by looking at their web site.

I know this is posting WAY late - and doing so mostly for folks that come through, rather than a direct response...

I just bought my Jackson Coosa HD from Wildcat Creek Outfitters and demoed the Coosa HD and Big Rig. They had a fairly nice assortment of kayaks available. I believe the carry in-store, most of the Jackson fishing line, FeelFree, and the Native Propel's.

Also there is Rusted Moon Outfitters in Indianapolis (Broadripple) that will setup demos as well. Though, they typically have far less options available in terms of fishing kayaks. Last time I was there (last year) they had a Wilderness Systems Ride 115, and that was pretty much it.

I have heard rusted moon will actually let you rent for a day too. I can tell ya this, fluid fun will let you spend the day demoing anything they have on the lot. Good people there.

Not sure what part of Indiana your from, but I have bought 6 boats from Canoe Kentucky in Frankfort KY. Their business sets right on Elkhorn creek and they have several demo boats on hand. Excellent people to deal with and I would not hesitate to send anybody their direction. Extremely knowledgeable and if they sell it, they've paddled it!

I was in Wildcat Creek Outfitters a month ago and asked them the same question. They said that Jackson (specifically) makes them have demo yaks available and that with a few days notice they can generally get you in one.
