Currently using a Cobra Explorer. Good points are stable, and light with flat spots to attach rod holders on. Down side is it sits higher in the air which is affected more by wind and you get alot of bow slap in choppy water.

11 year old Ocean Kayak Scrambler XT. Performance wise I've never used anything else so I have nothing to compare it to. Serves me well caught many fish many years with it.

OK Prowler. This is my first year kayaking and kayak fishing. It has taken me by storm. I love it. Next year I would like to learn to take it out in the surf, as most of my fishing is done the North Shore of Long Island.

Wilderness Systems Tarpon 140. It's plenty big and stable, takes all the attachements I need, yet paddles well.

I am 5' 7", 150 lbs. Heavier guys complain about water in the footwells. I still have water there, but it doesn't bother me.

OK Prowler(15') pretty happy with it. Very stable and fast. Fishes well. A little unstable when you shimmy up to open the front hatch to take out rods etc.

OK Scupper Pro TW- it's quick and I've paddled through some very rough conditions with her, so she's without a doubt seaworthy. No complaints other then it's tracking with stiff wind (I don't have a rudder)

160 Tarpon

Dam... Look at all the kayakers. Hope this doesn't mean I have to work around here.

Now if only I could get all of you to play Halo2 online. I could start up my own clan.

Where my Bizach, Marko Fisho????
