Adam talks with Morgan from Hobie Kayaks at Outdoor Retailer 2014 about the fishing-friendly updates to the 2015 "Outback". These updates address many of the questions viewers asked during our interview with Morgan at ICAST 2014.
Adam talks with Morgan from Hobie about the new "Vantage CT" seats for the "Revo" and "Outback", as well as updates to the Mirage Drive.
Several weeks ago we spoke with Morgan Promnitz, Fishing Product Manager at Hobie Cat Company, and asked him if any of the older models of fishing kayaks were getting updates. At the time, Morgan told us that Hobie is always innovating, and that “You never know what the future may bring...”
The word is certainly out that Jackson Kayaks will be releasing a new boat called the “Kraken”. This kayak was collaboration between Jackson developers and Jim Sammons, host of the Kayak Fishing Show.
They came, they unveiled, and they took home the ICAST 2014 Overall Best of Show. That’s right - Old Town (a division of Johnson Outdoors) stole the show with their new fishing kayak line, the “Predator XL”.
Hobie just provided you an excuse to buy a Pro Angler fishing kayak. The new "Pro Angler 17T" is a tandem version of their extremely popular Pro Angler line. You can now justify its purpose to your significant other: it’s the family’s kayak, not just yours. The Pro Angler 17T can be rigged solo, traditional tandem, or face-to-face tandem. The PA 17T sounds like the perfect all-around family fishing kayak… fishing boat.
