I'm contemplating buying myself a Hobie Pro Angler. However, I aint gon na rush into it & will be ;looking at alternatives. I want something that is primarilly 'pedal powered' & not just a 'paddler' as it's primary use will be for fishing. Hence my initial interest in the the Hobie PA. As far as I'm aware the Hobie & Native Watercraft yaks are the only ones that are 'pedal powered'. Does anyone know of others? The NW Mariner is the direct competition to the Hobie PA. Each has it's advantages. I reckon the Hobie is a bit better quality & has more accessories. However, the Mariner is still bloody good quality & is cheaper. That's a lot of accessories for the same price tag. The Native also had a pedal powered prop as opposed to the Hobie Mirage drive fins. This allows the NW to be pedaled backwards & so reverse the yak, something the Hobie can't do. This feature I like a lot. So, what I'm after is to hear from anyone that might have some experience with the Native Watercraft yaks & what they think of them. Have ya used one? What do you think? How do they compare against the Hobie? Do you know of any other 'pedal powered' yaks? Thanks peeple.
