What's up with that skinny bladed paddle? I've never seen one of those before.

Greenland Kayak paddle history: http://www.qajaqusa.org/QK/makegreen2.pdf

I do think that this is a good move this year at ICAST 2018 in that I noticed that many boat manufacturers have a reduced price / value pedal boat available.

If we look at this boat, the TopWater series by Old Town even Hobie has released a value pedal drive in the Compass. I can say, that pedal drives are here to stay.

It is kind of funny that Pelican stole the Hobie drive that fell off of the Patent protection the first year it wasn't covered by a patent. Someone was going to do it after 20 years of protection, but man, that pedal drive wasn't unprotected very long before Pelican stole the Hobie idea. This is the gen 1 Hobie drive that has no reverse of course.

why didn't you test the drive? Consumers are curious to hear how it sounds like.

I'm surprised Pelican jumped on it first, but watch their sales go up, so it's a good move.
I look for others who already have pedal drives to switch over to the Hobie design...It's just a matter of time.

Maybe some of those new loud drives are like Zebco 202's, they feel and sound better when dunked.
