Re: So, who's getting the new plastic Stealth when they come out?

they've probably never even been on an ocean and might be sitting there wondering if they should print an ocean/fishing kayak and would welcome your call/info/help. I've emailed them, pointed them to this thread, so I guess we'll find out either way soon enough

Re: So, who's getting the new plastic Stealth when they come out?

It's elementary dear Mac. They simply need to consult you before their next design. Heck, for the sake of humanity perhaps call them collect to save them from screwing up the next design.

Melker in Sweden are 3D printing kayaks.

No fishing yaks in their range yet. By no means cheap but beautiful:

Re: So, who's getting the new plastic Stealth when they come out?

Re: So, who's getting the new plastic Stealth when they come out?

I moved to the stealth from the 400 the best thing I ever did especially when the wind picks up everything gets packed inside it and you can paddle back in a 15-20 knot head wind with very little dramas. I have the fisha 460 not quite as stable as a 400 or reload but in saying that I haven't tipped...

Re: So, who's getting the new plastic Stealth when they come out?

Yes! Waiting for a trial (nov) before ordering tho. Want to get my head around the practicalities of using in hull storage, and stability when in the poo relative to my 400. Would be great to read a review from you once you've taken one for a spin. I follow Rod (Rokkit Kit) on youtube and am not an...

Re: So, who's getting the new plastic Stealth when they come out?

There's a company in USA called Arevo that is able to 3D print carbon fibre reinforced thermo plastic objects like road racing bikes. It's phenomenal how they can orientate fibres for various loads, all with a 3D printer. Maybe they'll increase the size capacity of their printers in the future to be...

Re: Police harassment me new to kayaking hauraki gulf

None of any of the above is important. What really counts is if you caught any fish and got pics to prove it. You could have risked being as dead as this website is generally, and unless you got pics of the fish it counts for naught. It could be an argument for greater social policing by a 'woke' ci...

New Garmin Striker Plus 7SV + transducer - offers > $500

Hi All, have had this in the box sitting on the shelf for a while. No point in it gathering dust if I'm not going to get off my ass and actually fit it to my yak and I need the $ so out it goes. I've only had the transducer out of the box to silicon to a temporary pvc pole with a view to finding a g...

Re: First paddle post-lockdown

Sure feels good to be on the water again, even if the trips are short. Troof be told, the body couldn't handle a good paddle anyway, and even a massive paddle would be 1/10th of your small paddles anyway. The KY were underwhelming this morning but still good to be out there.

Re: covid 19 sports

Does anyone else find this lockdown quite interesting in some respects? I've discovered who are the true friends and who are just along for the ride. I've seen who is willing to put their own interests ahead of the collectives, as if they somehow are more important or smarter. And I've seen or heard...

Re: covid 19 sports

They say if I'm looking for loopholes I'm missing the point. In other words, suck it up snowflake. But it's not about loopholes, just seeking the clarity that comes from a few simple yes or no's. But there are many days to go until 3-day so I imagine the answers will come soon.

Re: No fishing

What are the chances we'll get this clarified before 3-day? If not, who will be the crash test dummy? Here in Mangawhai I could do it on the day we go back to level 3 and you can bet your last bag of flour there will be at least 10 people reporting me within the first 1/2 hour if not sooner, so I gu...
