    I have both a Revo 13 & OB & you can't stand up (or even really lean over) in a Revo... just sayin'... (& there's not any appreciable difference in speed)
    There should be NO Commercial Fishing for any fish species considered 'Over-fished' , 'Undergoing Overfishing' or Subject to Recreational Seasons, Limits, or Closures... Game Fish Status IS the Answer !!!

    I don't really agree with not being able to stand up in the revo I took mine out yesterday and sight fished all day didn't seem tippy to me. But I also paddle board if that has anything to do with it..

    Maybe I just have really crappy balance (& weigh >180lbs)

    Possibly I'm the same weight but regardless both the revo and outback are great choices.

    I just find my OB to be a lot more stable, but they're both great 'yaks... If I could only have 1 it would be an OB...

    The outback is deff more stable than the revo. The revo has a slimmer and slicker profile also lighter than the outback but also tippier since it's more narrow. Having owned both at one point they both have there pro's and cons. One thing I noticed with both is neither are great when trying to land back on the beach with small to moderate breakers. They track pretty bad once the rudder goes up and you grab a paddle on the way back in imho.

    Why do you pull up your rudder when you beach. I never do until I hit the sand especially when the surf is bad it is a lot easier to get boat straight with rudder rather then paddle. Rudder kicks up when you hit the beach. Done this in a PA and an outback and never had an issue.

    You pull the rudder to it doesn't break! I broke mine last year returning in some rough surf, the cable was still latched and didn't have time to pull it...the plastic pin broke and luckily had another to replace. I pulled up to the sand and a wave from behind pushed me further up on the beach and the rudder had nowhere to go, hence breaking on the pin.

    I would rather break an occasional pin that costs like 3 dollars and there's even a convinent place to keep one on the Hobie than risk flipping once only broke one in 3 years and never flipped coming to the beach. It's a no brainier for me. Flipped once walking kayak down beach in a 2 to 3 foot surf when my mirage drive brke and I couldn't keep it of the beach. Walked a half mile down the beach and flipped 100 yds from takeout it really sucked.

    Maybe you feel comfortable with going in with a rudder but I personally know a few that have done so and snapped the back of there rudder along with all the cables and pins that hold it in place, not to mention that the only time I tried to land with my rudder down I nearly pearled hard because the rudder control did not stay in the straight position that I had left in and my revo started to shift sideways as I made my landing. Hobie's are great yaks but are not the best at landing in surf imho.
