Purchased a Hobie Outback after my first two fishing kayaks, both being budget kayaks. The first was a paddle and I knew not long after I wanted to get a pedal drive. Found a cheap one and got what I paid for. It did the job but didn't have nearly the features as some of the higher end kayaks. After lots of videos and seeing the Outback up close last year, I knew that would be my next kayak. Ended up ordering in Dec. and picked up in the spring. This thing is the ultimate versatile fishing kayak, and couldn't be happier. Its fast, light, extremely stable, and maneuvers fantastically. One of my favorite features is the through-hull wire system with the retractable transducer. Hi-Tempo had great customer service when I picked up my Hobie. Thank-You everyone at Hi-Tempo.
