Both kayaks are fairly close with paddling. The Tourer will take a little more weight. The biggest differance is the Tourer is a lot more expensive, so most go with the Tarpon. After you add in shipping, have to come from West Coast. Thats why you don't see as many Tourer's like you see on the West Coast. Both are great kayaks.
: I noticed that Cobra's are fairly populer on the west coast. I've been looking at paddel boats for a while, and have test paddled a few, and have a question. Why would everyone here in Texas overlook the Cobra Tourer? I have paddled it, seems to be fast and somewhat stable. I have not, however paddeled the Tarpon(the local favorte), so I am missing out on the direct comparison. The Tourer looks nice, though, with three hatches AND a tankwell. What am I missing?
