Speed and stability are mutually exclusive when it comes to kayaking. And that means answers to your question are as useful as knowing an average temperature across an hospital. It's you who can only make a verdict and there is nobody who could really help you doing that since all and any opinions are misleading. Trust nobody
Agreed. I own 2 kayaks. I have a Tarpon 160 for speed and a Freedom Hawk 12 for stability. Its impossible for me to stand in the Tarpon but with the outriggers deployed I can stand, fish and paddle in my Freedom Hawk but it is slow in comparison. I was thinking of putting stabilizers on my Tarpon that could be raised when not in use. Has anyone here tried them out? Seems like the best of both worlds.
