I just got the Perception Pescador Pilot 12.0 this past week. I tried other pedal drives, but this one was the lightest and cheapest. I took it to Pinchot and it did real well except the pedal drive got wrapped up with vegetation near the cove with all of the weeds. It was stable and I stood up to fish also. The molded in rod holders are less than desireable. I got a few things on order to make it just right for me.
