Hobie has unveiled the newest addition to their fleet of angling kayaks. The new Mirage ”Pro Angler 12” may be their most versatile fishing craft yet. No matter what type of water you fish, the Pro Angler 12 is ready to handle it, and boasts more features than you can swing a graphite rod at.

The Essentials:

MirageDrive:   

The always-popular pedal-driven propulsion system is included on the Pro Angler 12. With self-centering pedals and the included  turbo fins, the MirageDrive is the proven leader of a stealthy and efficient approach to fish.

Vantage Seating:

With the new Vantage seat, Hobie has raised the bar. Boasting both fore/aft reclining action and a 5” up or down adjustment, you can achieve comfort to fit your style without getting out of your chair. Made from Hobie’s new comfort mesh, the Vantage Seat includes the  Boa® System for lumbar support. When you are ready to stand up and do some sight fishing, the chair folds neatly out of the way.

Boa® Adjustment:    

Located on the back of the seat is a one-handed dial that provides a full range of adjustment to provide lumbar support.
