7 posts in this topic

Just wondering why ive never heard anyone talk about these.Looks like a great boat.As long and wide as the WS Tarpon and comes set up pretty well for fishing.Theres not even one review on it at Paddeling net.Anybody ever try one?

Exactly its brand new so nobody has used them yet. They'll be available in the spring. Only negative I can see is that its very heavy. 66#s without a rudder so its going to be 70 plus with a rudder system. WS has gotten smart and is using high grade poly for the Tarpons now and they're going to get them down to app. 50#s. Thats a big difference.

Bernie they've been talking a lot about the Prowler at this link: http://www.texaskayakfisherman.com/msgboard.mv

 

As for what JonS said about the weight of the yak being to heavy. For me it really wouldn't make any difference how much it weighs cause of all the junk I always bring along with me when I go fishing(2or more rods/anchor/drift chute/fish finder/2+boxes of flies/GPS/Paddle and so on. I would still need a kayak cart just to get me to the water.

Flyrodder all the stuff you mentioned is removable....when the hull alone weighs 66# thats allot of weight to load on your truck alone. And if your like me loading on a camper a 66# yak isnt somehting I wanna load up there often.

JohnM I can understand your point. But the Prowler has 3 different seated positions either for casting or fighting a big fish. 1 in front 2 the regular seated position and 3 behind that seat you can sit up high for when your fishing a sandy flat. I would have to see and paddle(is it fast,stable,easy to turn,hows it handle rough stuff)the Prowler in order to know if I liked it or not. But if I did like it I wouldn't let the weight of the kayak stop me from getting it.
