The Pro Angler with 360 technology is all new for 2020 with 360 MirageDrive and Kick-Up Fins. It is Available in the 12′ length or, for those who require a little more space and carrying capacity, the 14′ length. The MirageDrive 360 allows you to move in any direction. The new Kick-Up fins retract automatically upon impact of a submerged object such as a log or shallows. The Kick-Up fins allow you to fish as close to sunken objects as you would like. This avoids costly and frustrating damages. Once the object is cleared, simply begin peddling and the fins will pop back into place.
Other notable features of the 2020 Pro Angler 14 360 include a wide beam for ultimate stability, EVA traction pads for standing, four horizontal rod holders, two vertical molded-in rod holders, bow and stern carrying handles, a bow hatch, a sail/Bimini accessory mount, mid-boat carrying handles, an 8” aft hatch, aft cargo well with bungee, mesh stowage pockets, a Vantage ST seat, a pivoting tackle maintenance system, rudder control, H-rail bars, and a Guarding retractable transducer shield.
Experience the MirageDrive 180 like never before with all new Kick-Up Turbo Fins. Logs, kelp? No problem. Our patented Kick-Up Fins “kick back” when contact is made with under water obstacles. Keep a half-dozen rods rigged and ready in the four standard horizontal and two molded-in rod holders for the ultimate kayak fishing adventure. Confidently stand and fire cast after cast. The elevated Vantage ST seat makes it easy to move around the boat. Now includes a retractable skeg for improved course-keeping, as well as the innovative Hobie H-Rail for superior flexibility in accessory rigging.
Dominate the water in the Ultimate Fishing Machine.For discerning anglers who demand it all – room, stability, performance, stealth, and comfort– the PA 14 stands alone. There’s a non-skid deck for standing—a huge advantage for sight kayak fishing—and veritable acres of H-Rail for mounting rod holders and electronics. All this on a spacious 14-foot platform, with no need for a gas tank. Hobie’s unique MirageDrive 180 with new Kick-Up Turbo Fins provides efficient, worry-free, quiet propulsion.
Powered by dual MirageDrive 180 pedal systems + New Kick-Up Turbo Fins + ARC Cranks, the Pro Angler 17T is the ideal tandem pedal fishing kayak. Set up the fully adjustable Vantage XT Seating (extra tall) in the in-line tandem configuration (guide style), face- to-face (ideal for fishing with small fry), or as a single (so much space!); three steering handles cover all the possibilities. Fishing rod storage both front and rear holds an astounding dozen rods—bring the entire quiver. Customize accessory placement on more than 20 feet of H-Rail system. Both users can stand and kayak fish in comfort and each cockpit is fitted with a large rectangular hatch with pivoting tackle management system; there’s even additional under-seat storage. An aft battery platform stands ready to house a 12v trolling motor battery, a cooler or crate to carry even more gear. Now available with the Guardian Transducer Shield, a retractable shield that protects your transducer on impact and retracts away for transport.
