They lifted the Hobie drive almost unchanged since patent protection is done. Overall it's probably a much cheaper option since Pelican is made here and Hobie is made stateside. The price of the Hobie's has reached ridiculous levels. The Hobies are also heavy making it a pain to hoist them up on to your cartop. This one is 85lbs so it's reletively easy to get them up. The only problem I see is that they look cheap and that somtimes indicates that they are poorly made. I expect to see them at Sail soon. I read it's $1495 USD which is cheap compared to the Hobie and other like driven kayaks. It will be interesting to know if they copied the old Mirage Drive with bushings or the new Mirage drive that uses berrings

If the Shimano DC really works, imma gonna drop some coin and get one. Not that I don't love picking at nests lol

Since when does a reel need to have a computer in it?. This is what I call STUPID CRAZY, OVER THINKING c hit. Improve the basics, no issue here. Maybe they are caught up in today's world. Make it simple stupid.

yup. learning how to throw with a baitcaster is fundamental but that doesn't mean we can't adapt or use newer tech. I'm happy to see a company that's doing more than just keeping on, keeping on ;) 

I guess if you have the coin to ADAPT, then all the power to ya. I wonder how many more fish it will catch? :dunno:

Pssst, you need a 250hp motor to catch fish! LOL

The new Hobie has reverse so Pelican is copying the earlier version of the hobie mirage drive.

There are lots of pedal style kayaks coming out in iCast. It is good to have some competition. Hobie really is over priced.
