Hobie Reverse

Killer addition to have in managing to stay on a spot. So nice to ride up to the kelp line and reverse back while throwing the jigs. Just saying.

Or when your fishing the rocks and the swell and current is pushing you into the rocks. What to do? A) Brace for impact B)Push yourself off the rocks with your paddle C)Paddle out of there. Just saying.

Need? Nah. But I find it very useful. Iím particularly impressed with how quickly you can change directions. In heavy current you have to be conscious of your orientation and rudder, but I use it all the time on bottom drops when drifting if I mark structure I like and want it to be dead on it.

Only issue is that it can be annoying to shift, as it takes that half a pedal and Iíll catch myself pulling hard before itís ready.
