New here, but not new to kayak fishing. In the fall I purchased a pedal drive non Hobie thinking I'd love hands free fishing. Instead it made me realize how much I miss the old kayaks that felt like kayaks, and being a minimalist. Seems like I've been paddling barges over past few years. Anyway long story short I have my eye on some sleeker paddle kayaks in the 13 foot range, the quest being one. I was wondering though if the new Vantage seat made them more unstable, and less suited to fishing. I'm not really into standing. Just give me a fast light boat with a comfy seat, and I'm good. Thanks for any feedback

The new Vantage seat is night and day between the old seat...you'll be so much more comfortable fishing all day in the new seat.

I highly recommend setting up a demo with a local dealer and giving it a test drive: https://www.hobie.com/try-a-hobie/

Found a 2017 Papaya Quest that I just had to have. Looking forward to getting it in water, and being back in a boat that actually feels like a kayak
