Absolutely love this kayak. Bought it last spring during quarantine. It is on the heavier end, so recommend getting a cart to move it around. It was a leap.of faith spending this much, but so glad I did.

Pros- Comfortable seat with lots of adjustment. Very stable, you can stand and cast, great fishing machine. You have A LOT of area to move around to get equipment from the back of the craft. Pretty fast, I can get a little over 5 mph out of it peddling hard. Bow design is great, unlike others that plow the water this one cuts through the waves. In areas with wind and or boat traffic it handles the rough water very well. Rudder design is great, you can maneuver this thing to make tight circles or set a course and troll just using your finger tips. Multiple areas to mount fish finders, GPS, rod holders etc. Cons- Its heavy, depending on your size/age etc. getting it in and out of a pickup can be a chore. A kayak cart and a little engineering can overcome this problem. There are BIG handles at bow and stern but the help from another is the way to go. You can tip the peddle drive up for paddling when in rocks or weeds. A paddle of at least 250cm is needed because you sit high and the width of the craft.

On vacation to Pensacola Beach this summer, I hired a fishing guide and fished in the bay near Oriole Beach. This was my first experience with a pedal drive and I was a skeptic. I am now actively researching pedal drives to use on Greers Ferry lake where I live. The Old Town Predator was very stable and the pedal drive easy to use. As a senior citizen, 65 years old, there was an added feature that was, well, a real blessing. The pedal gear box lifted up and forward to enable me to stand up and take a wiz through the hole. Any older guy with prostate issues will understand what I mean.
