I'm a big guy about 310 pounds I live in central Texas so I will be fishing Belton and the rivers around here and different lakes maybe the Guadalupe and maybe Devils River things like that which one of the kayaks that Diablo makes would be my best choice I plan on putting a trolling motor on it and the FeelFree Gravity Kayak seat Also any information would be greatly appreciated

You need to try them out. Can you make a trip to Austin or DFW to demo a kayak from ACK or Mariner?

Get hold of fishinpreacher and see what he can make for you. For what you'll spend on a plastic one he should be able to make a custom one that will do exactly what you want.

Ur limited to yaks at your size.
im not saying ur screwed. Certainly doable but u r limited in yaks n waters to paddle safely.
Do u know wich diablo yak has the highest weight capacity?
A 2015-2016 model nucanoe frontier may be a good yak 4u.

310 angler + 80 marine battery + 10 troll motor + 25-50 gear/tackle = ?
U definately want to look at the highest capacity w/a flat bottom.
itll perform best for ya n drag bottom less.
Scrapping bottom gets old quickly & wont be covered under warranty.

Are Diablo kayaks your only preference? Have you looked at the Jackson Big Rig?
