Review: I have a 2012 Outback and absolutely love it. As Jack mentioned below the only place I felt it was lack was the seat. Just recently I came across this forum topic about a folding hunting seat that fits in the kayak perfectly. I tried it out and couldn't be happier. The kayak is still very stable and standing up is much easier. http://www.texaskayakfisherm an.com/forum/viewtopic.php? f=53&t=207305

Review: I recently bought the Hobie Outback and have used it in a few KATS tournaments. It is an awesome boat. It is fully capable to do anything you want to do with it. I chose the Outback over the Pro Angler basically off the practicality of the size. The Outback's size is a lot more manageable than the Pro Angler especially on the off the beating path launches. You can paddle this kayak a lot easier than the Pro Angler. I definitely recommend getting the turbo fins. The kayak works well without the rudder upgrade and is very maneuverable. I would recommend the rudder upgrade if you plan on fishing in rough water or current though. Also, It is totally possible to stand while fishing in this kayak. I do it all the time in calm water. It can be a little shaky at first though you can get used to it. I am 6' 188 pounds. But really standing is overrated because you cannot control your rudder or the drifting of the kayak. You will not go wrong with this kayak. It can handle almost any type of water. I did a lot of research prior to this purchase and I am fully satisfied. The only down side is the seat is not quite as comfortable as the pro angler. Hobie need to please design a Pro Angler type seat for the Outback it would be the perfect fishing vessel then. Hope this helps.

Review: You pay a higher price, but you get new technology, and more flexability with the Hobie Kayaks. I would recomend it to anyone who can budget a higher price, because it's worth it.
