The wife approved and we both upgraded our kayaks. We had two Revo 11's (one is still for sale), but now I will be using a Hobie Outback 2015. She chose to stay with the Revo 11, but wanted to upgrade for the new mirage drive and seat. I chose to switch to the Outback for more stability while standing and a little more storage/room. I was able to get a good deal at Dolphin Paddlesports in Sarasota. My Outback (pictured below) came with pre-installed turbo fins, oceangrip, and an anchor trolley. I also had them install some small geartracs on each side for future accessories. I'm very happy with the new purchase and can't wait to get it out on the water. I also added a picture of my Cayo SUP that I use to fish off of frequently.

Congrats on the new Outback. How stable is it to stand and fish in?

krash - If you are ever in the Matlacha area sometime I'd be glad to meet up and let you test it out. Super stable and fun.

boblovesfishing - I only got to demo one but during that time it felt super stable. I would say almost as stable as my paddle board just not as wide of a foot stance. Hopefully this Saturday I'll get to do a full test and let you know.
