Looking at inflatables and the one modular option out there (due to storage issues).

Has anyone actually fished or paddled a Point65 kayak (generally) or the Tequila GTX Angler (specifically)?

I would appreciate you sharing your experiences. There is only one post (from several years ago) by a forum member who actually had one.

Target kayak will be used for shallow and open freshwater, and shallow marine (not surf or offshore).

Thanks in advance!

Inflatable I would look at the Pike from NRS. They are made to run rivers for anglers so pretty much anything you throw at it should be fine.

You may also look at some of the collapsible kayaks. I dont know any real specifics but i did see a white corrugated kayak and it felt very rigid and looked very fast. Just another option. I know inflatables have been used for a long time and can hold up to a lot of abuse.

A good rule of angling philosphy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

Thanks guys.

I have researched the inflatables, and still considering one, but was wondering if anyone had actually paddled a modular.

Iconn4: thanks for the link. I have been researching Advanced Elements and have not been hearing many good things. The Pike is an option, and NRS is a great company. Also looking at Aquaglide. Both have drop stitch hard floors.

My main problem with inflatables is not really durability. I have confidence a good inflatable can take the occasional branch, rock, ect. As long as I don't run it up on an oyster bank and then jump up and down in it I should be fine.

My main reservations with an inflatable are: (1) performance (tracking, stability), (2) high profile in the wind, and (3) difficulty in re-entry in an emergency (if I am partially incapacitated, etc.). Hence the research into a Point 65 modular.
