2019 Hobie release manana

Questions will be answered! Will the newest drive have not only forward and reverse but have up down and sideways features? Will there be some color offerings changing? will there be a model discontinued? will there be a new model added? Will there be a total redesign of a model? Will prices go up? Stand by...........


EDIT.........and there you go!

IMO this is the smartest kayak design I have seen, looking forward to fishing this one hard.

I wouldn't mind seeing new safety colors for the PA.

When I bought mine, the new color was Camo. It looks sick but I went with safety papaya....and even then I still worry when I'm out there by myself.

Also, hopefully due to their patent expiring for the mirage drive their prices don't increase.

Just saw the Hobie fishing Facebook page. It says "HUGE NEWS"

So it's more than just a color change. If they redesigned the outback or pro angler hull I am good with what I have.

If they release a new model than can take a small outboard, but still have a mirage drive and accept the livewell........man it would be bad news for my wallet.

Do you have a craigslist add? I sold my old Tarpon 140 there. You can also throw it up on Letgo and offerup.

Anyway it might be a blessing in disguise. What if they release something that better meets your wants and needs.

I think Frank submitted an idea to Hobie for a PA17 tandem island. What are the chances?

Looks like they have a new outback and compass tandem. Pretty nice but I hope they have more for this "huge news".
