I'm in the market for a big SOT kayak, and I'm hoping to hear some thoughts from folks that own them. Most of my recent kayaking experience has been on a Wilderness Ride 135. I'm 6'4", 315lbs, and looking to do anything from casual afternoon floats, to duck hunting, to an extended camping float trip.
I had it narrowed down to two that look good on paper.... the Feelfree Lure 13.5 and the Nucanoe Pursuit. Then I put eyes on the Field & Stream Shadow Caster, and while it has a few gremlins, it looks to be a decent boat for half the price of the other two, which would allow me to buy plenty of farkles for it.
It's going to be a rather extensive ordeal to put these boats in the water for a test paddle, so i'm hoping to glean as much info as possible from the folks that own these boats in the meantime.
