I got my Top Water PDL last week and fished it for about 4 hours and loved it. I had a predator pdl so thats what I'm comparing with. First impression was it's more stable than the predator, I could leave too far in the predator and get water over the side. In the top water I can stand on one side comfortably. It's very sensitive to rudder input and tracks really well. The predator hull is more efficient and faster (I think) but the size and weight of the top water is more important to me than a few tenths mph. I'm old and skinny so the size and weight makes it much is easier for me to handle. The predator may be better for bigger water, longer distances.
