Mirage Passport 12.0 Description

The 12-foot Mirage Passport takes you where you want to go with ease and world-class authority with the revolutionary MirageDrive with Glide Technology pedal propulsion system and Kick-Up Fins. When you’re not relaxing in the Passport’s breathable mesh seat, a wider cockpit area with EVA floor padding provides a stable platform for standing and stretching your legs or casting a lure. There’s plenty of real estate to stash equipment on the bow or stern cargo areas and more below deck access through the center 8” Twist-n-Seal hatch. Anglers will love our stealthy Bay Sand color and will be happy that the Passport 12 has a transducer cavity and scupper for simple install of your favorite fishfinder. All this on top of a Power-Pole® Micro bracket indent to mount your favorite shallow water anchor. Additional features include steering system with stowable rudder, two fishing rod holders, accessory tracks, and under seat and gunnel tackle storage.

intermediate paddler 6' 180lbs, bought the rotomolded version 12r new as soon as it came out, obscene primary stability, i ve literally fallen asleep on this kayak, seat is very comfy, i actually prefer it over the vantage seat on my other hobie, kick up gt fins are deadly quiet, you can crawl up on wildlife, paddles like the door from titanic, zero secondary stability, think barge, doesn t like to go fast but cruises easily at a decent 3mph all day with zero effort, tried it with my other turbo fins, no use - hull shape likes 3mph - push it hard it can reach 6mph max but takes too much effort and the bow hops, any short period waves above 1 foot and the hull slaps so it gets super annoying in chop, had to upgrade the rudder to the larger version, original rudder would get overpowered with any current

I'm impressed, after just one 'voyage' of 4 miles on a calm lake it is faster and less tiring than paddling. The stability is amazing, can support standing up without fear of capsizing. Pros: Stability, easy set up and/or removal of components, tracks well with hand operated lever, optional Bimini canopy is great! Fits on top of vehicle with just standard roof rack Cons: Heavy, need 2 people to lift (unless you're a body builder!) slower than a standard kayak if using paddle instead of pedal
