All the new boats, and boat designs coming out. I get a yak that has it all, then they make 3 new ones, with the same, and more refined features. I really want a pedal boat, or even a trolling motorized yak.

That's the Feel Free, "Lure". I like the floor space. I have a hard time managing all my rods. The floor space looks like it would help. The seat looks amazing. I guess it lacks the center hatch, that my Cuda has. I suppose there's no perfect yak, but I hate wondering if I would have a better time "with another woman". I guess that's what R&D, and Marketing was made for, to make me wonder.

Edit: It also has toe controls

like the man says...if you're swimming in the ocean and get bitten by a shark, its not a shark attack. You're in THEIR neighborhood. If you're at home in your shower, turn around and a shark is in there with you...THAT'S a shark attack

The Lure has a small center hatch. I'm going to be watching the reviews closely on it.

I don't think the Lure would be for me, but I wish my boat had built in, flush gear track stuff.

Are the feel free kayaks made over seas?

Yes the feel frees are molded over seas. They are owned by an American company. For the price on these lures as we'll the moken series, you get allot of bang for your buck.
If anyone's interested in demoing moken line just let me know. The lure will not fall out of the mold until late this year.

The Lure caught my attention too, especially the molded carrying handles. The bolts on my 135's strap handles have a habit of coming loose so I'm constantly checking, and tightening them. Same on a buddy's 115. Haven't thought through all the implications of the molded handles, but at first sight, I like them.

Oh, and the rudder? Don't need it. I'm a river rat. bolt

There's five things that I like the most about the style of the feel free kayaks and that's the molded handles, built in slide rails front and back and the cart wheel molded into the stern,the locks on the hatch covers, and the toe control rudder system.

This post reminded me of the first time I saw the Feel Free Moken from New Zealand. They had some good ideas. I notice the Lure has more of an American look now. cheers

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

Blue locktite problem solved, the vibration of transport is what causes this.
