But as far as i can see N2Y has given credit where credit is due and mentioned a coupled of the things he had concerns with . A very balanced review . :y:[/quote]

Sorry if it sounded sarcastic. :$ not in a good place last night, but I dot think the above line down plays something that i would of thought was a couple of major concerns. Paddling straight and being able to sit in the kayak comfortably.
Can someone direct me to the other review of this model?

.
...remember this is just how I found the seat and I am sure others will be very comfortable in it. I had big problems with comfort in my Prowler 13 also while I had mates that paddled them with std seat with no comfort problems at all. Conversely I find the seat setup in my Profish 400 very comfy where as a mate who also paddles a 400 gets the dreaded num-bumb syndrome after a few hours.

As mentioned, get down/up there and have a paddle yourself. You will soon work out whether the 4.3 moulded seat works for you or if you should consider another seat option.

Cheers.

" In saying this I understand the factory seat can be removed and replaced with aftermarket options...the next test "

Any news on this?
