Cobra or Tarpon?
Looking to get in on the yak love. I don't have the $$ to buy new. I've found 2 Yak's that i'm hardcore interested in. The Cobra Fish N Dive, and the Trapon 120.
My main use for this will be bay fishing, with the occasional lake.
I'm leaning towards the Cobra...
I'm also a bigger dude 6'6 240lbs.

Cobra. Perfect yak for us larger model folks.

Cobra, very stable, you can seat with both legs on one side and it won't flip over.

Sweet. I'm totally leaning towards the FnD. Thanks for the input. Just have to wait for next week to roll around...
I drive a TrailBlazer, can i throw the Yak on the roof rack, or is it better to get a little hitch and tow it?

Now i'm thinkin about possibly the 135 vs the Fnd vs the malibu extreme....
Leaning really hard towards the 135

The FnD is a great yak to start out on, but a lot of people I know grow out it of it rather quickly (it's a pig). The tarpon may be the opposite, a little tricky at first but most guys I know with them like them. The extreme is in the middle. Very stable and easy to get comfortable on, but so comfortable you may never leave it. Try em all and see which one feels right for you.
