  • What I do for a living:
  1. I think I might be guilty of doing the same. I came to that realization toward the end of last season and decided to revamp my tackle with some smaller profiled presentations. Plus, the company as a whole seems to have a diverse selection of products.
  2. I purchased my first Mirrodine last weekend after watching tons of videos of guys in FL using them. I hope to have success in NJ while yakking flats in the bays. I got the smaller size but I will definitely be looking out for this larger one.
  3. Awesome. That’s actually the model I had in mind. Thanks for getting back to me.
  4. Ksong, I have been thinking about a black hole for one of my kayak setups. Is there a model suitable for casting lighter lures in the 1/2 to 1 1/2oz range. I know they’re ideal for jigging but just wondering about casting. Thanks.
  5. I'm actually 5'9'' and about 185lbs. I think the Revo will be more than enough; I might just have to give it a try.
  6. This is a great analogy and really speaks to where I'm at in this decision. When I first started kayak fishing I was keeping the car packed but as I've done it more, I've been actively carrying less. I plug 90% of the time and like to move. Also, I fish locally and most times l load the Outback on my truck bed; although I have a roof rack, I find it too difficult to lift without risking serious injury. I'd imagine the Revo would be easier to lift.
  7. Is it safe to say that if you were forced to stick to one, it would be the Outback?
  8. I have never thought about it that way. I will definitely put thought into these factors before I begin. Thank you for the advice.
  9. Billy built my last rod and I love it. He also planted this seed in my head that I should give building a try. I'm looking forward to attending next gathering but I thought I should get a head start. But you might be right and maybe I should hold off till then. Thanks.
  10. Thank you for the extensive breakdown. I spend most of my time on the move and have only on few occasions attempted to anchor (Drum Fishing); however, since I am primarily a bay fisherman, I'm not sure if its worth the change. I am going to really try things out this spring. If Santa's good to me, maybe I can find a way to hold on to my Outback as well and just add the Revo to the fleet.
  11. I read about this issue before but also found myself a bit uncomfortable in the Outback under the same conditions. Other than those instances, do you feel like it excels in most conditions?
  12. I live in South Jersey, Atlantic County. I thought about doing just that and trying to reach out to some people. I have been checking out mud hole, so I’ll look at the parts you mentioned. Thanks.
  13. I have been admiring this forum as of late. I’m looking to try my hand at rod building and unlike any of my other previous ventures, I don’t want to be overambitious and wasteful. With that said, should I be looking at starter kits or searching for individual building components? I am starting from scratch and the only thing I know are the blanks I want to try. Also, are there any companies or brand names I should go with or stay away from? Thanks
  14. I have been fishing my 2015 LE Outback for two seasons now. I love the platform and have no “real”complaints; however, I am thinking about switching to a Revo 13. I like the idea of improved paddeling and an increase in speed but what would I be giving up other than extra space? Also, when compared to the Outback, is the Revo the better overall Hobie platform for saltwater bay/inlet/ocean? I know there’s no definitive answer (or maybe there lol), just looking for feedback.
  15. I'm leaning towards a Hobie Revo 13. I love my LE Outback but past couple years of experience have taught me that in the yak world sometimes less is more. I would like to be able to navigate a little quicker and have better tracking when I need to paddle.
