I'm about 5"11 weight 190lbs, so I might be ok to fit the pro 2 on a weight to size consideration. The speed plus stamina can be an issue worth considering for longer paddles offshore. I usually like to fish in excessive more than 6 hours so chances are I might need to preserve the energy for otherwise wouldn't be a big issue on a bigger boat. Thanks for the reminders! Like I said I've only paddled within the harbor on a yak but even for in-experienced paddler like my self I will be expecting some-what a different experience when venturing outside the harbor one day on conditions such as wind, distance and the water condition. Yeah I've never gone out before as I said I'm a brand new newbie to this culture of fishing! But from watching Rihno's video tape on Threshers yak style(JJ are you in the tape too? jk, thanks for the input!) and few other videos they look safe and exciting enough to lure me into this style of fishing.(don't know about hunting for Thresashers at this stage, thought it's kinda hardcore for a newbie)
Vic, I think you're right, I don't have a kid now so chances of me bringing my girlfriend often is slim.
Mr. Mugu thanks for your advice, renting a yak cost around $50 each time, might as well buy a spare used yak at home incase the main one has to go in for service, jk.
Pirahna Thanks for your pictures, your yak looks awesome! just curious to how well the seat feel when strapped on top of the hatch instead of the groove, or the seat well? I got two friends involved in buying a kayak each for fishing, we use to rent skiffs a lot from Davey's locker, one of my friend is getting a used pro 2 tandem so that's why I'm still asking the question.
You guys are great! hope to see you guys soon, still waiting for my Eagle fish easy finder from Malibu kayak, I think that stuff is on back order!

best, Joe
