Hi all, new to the forum here. I've been kayak fishing for about a year after 55 years of occasional fishing from boats, and loving the kayak with its closer feel to nature. I bought a second hand Viking GT and like everything except it is slow/hard to paddle into a wind or if there is chop/swell. I launched off Papamoa on the weekend into a reasonable sea. Usual slow trip with loss of speed as swell passes under. I am looking to trade up to a reload. has anyone here tried a GT and a Reload? I've read lots of reload reviews and they all talk about speed, i.e. easier to paddle longer trips. Can anyone give me an idea of how much difference I would find between the two? Looking forward to more Papamoa trips though.
