I was looking at some new demo (still in plastic) 2018 closeout outbacks. I've read that there are some upgrades to the 2019. Do you think the upgrades are worth an additional $900 to $950. That would be the cost difference to go for a 2019 new (not demo) unit.

That's not really a question anyone else can answer for you as it depends on how much you value the new features. If I couldn't spend what it took for a 19 Outback I likely would've just considered other kayaks before an 18 Outback. I think the stability, cockpit layout, and transducer mount were worth the extra cost. The layout of the cockpit and stability were huge for me, but they may not be as valuable to you.

I wasn’t in the market for a Outback.

Was looking for an old school Quest. When I saw the promo video it changed my mind.

So from my point of view, I was not attracted to the old Outback. Price wasn’t the issue for me.
