This is the Hobie Pro Angler 12 video shot at ICAST 2012. Here the Hobie guy explains some of the difference between the 12 vs the original 14.
I’ve been in both the 14 and the 12 so here is my quick run down.
- Seat on the 12 is phenomenal. Probably the best Kayak seat ever built.
- 12 turns a lot getter
- The 12 is lighter by about 10-20lb depending on load.
- Stability is not as good as in the 14 but it’s negligible. I could stand up easily in both.
The funniest part is in the first 4 seconds, I jump into the screen like I was batman.
Thanks to Cheryl aka Redfish Ranger for shooting the video.
