Re: AKL Harbour Bridge 24/Feb

Re: Prowler 13 vs Prowler 4.5 Elite

Hi, my two cents worth, first time out with a 4.5, turtled right near the beach, never done that before in 49 years of paddling, never trusted it again and sold it. :)

He says sometimes he says it seems to bring on the fish, so has anyone else tried something simillar? I have ...

Re: Waterproof pouch for phone recommendation

Hi, I bought mine from Burnsco, seems good for me, worn around my neck, and tucked inside my shirt. I am a bit deaf so can hear it and feel the vibration on my chest. Never been a problem. Hope this helps? :y:

Re: Battery charging

Hi, JCar Electronics sell the right type of charger, it is designed to charge small batteries and has a maintaining charge when it is charged and accidently left on even for days. They cost about $22 from memory, I have had one for about 5 years, brilliant. Hope this helps? :y:

Re: Profish 400 lite or GT

Hi, I bought a GT for when I retire to go relatively short distances and anchor up. It is light and easy to handle, but slow compared to my 440. I fished with some other people in 400s who were much faster. I am sure a 400 would be a good all round kayak if you want a single kayak to cover most situ...
