    The only thing I would say is that it's not the fastest boat out there nor is it likely the easiest paddle. All that weight capacity and stability come with a price. The other (minor)issue is don't...

    I'm about your weight but a bit shorter (take a look at my user name!)and fish a Malibu X-Factor. It's likely not the fastest yak out there but it has a huge weight capacity and it's stable as a slab.

    It wasn't "Clouser'ed" but TFO repaired my TiCr 4 weight after I put my big thumb where it didn't belong while unjointing the rod. No questions asked either
