I have a Tarpon 120, replaced with Native Marvel 12. Tarpon too heavy. Love Marvel except draining it.
Seriously thinking of switching (both husband and myself) to Hobie's paddle system. As I get older (I was 65 when I started this several years ago) I hesitate to go a long distance because about 5 miles is my limit especially fighting wind and current. I would like to be able to go farther to fish without worrying about paddling back. That said, I AM a very strong paddler and end up waiting for hubby who is in a Manta Ray and not as fast for whatever reason, SO we would both need to switch to Hobie's. We mainly fish lakes and the New River (in VA) but go to FL every year that we can. Now have Hullavator's to load so weight not as much of an issue.
Opinions on whether or not this would be a mistake?
