The Old Town PDL is hands down the best pedal kayak! I've owned a native which has a poor pedal system that pops out if used hard. It seems to take extra work to use, you get fatigued easily. The Hobie angler seems technically advanced till you try one. Seem slow and pulling a level to reverse, what. It felt faster going backwards! The PDL is super fast and easy to use. I now go on 10 mile trips without getting fatigued. cons; weight- must use a trailer, but feels nimble on water. Also the seat bar pushes on your bottom, could use some padding. If your on the fence-jump off and get a old town PDL, you'll love it!
I absolutely love this kayak! I could literally sell it door to door!!!
