I like mine....I do fish nice and high out of the water compared to the Togiak i also own. The bottom of the skegs(floats?) are reinforced and they do seem to be tough. Rod holders were a kinda after thought and i do need to look on line and see what i can do with some PVC to craft a rod holder.
I'm pretty happy with mine and it is nice and comfy.
Keep 'dem lines tight and enjoy the fight....!
