Check out OEX, they have some used and factory blems at great prices. Also check the classifieds here, and on Bigwater's Edge. Test paddle a few models if you can, will help you make a good decision.

My cousin bought one of the "house" brand kayaks at bass pro. We had a few different kayak/brands at his lake last summer. The kids avoided the bass pro kayak over the other name brand kayaks, said it didn't paddle as good, slower, etc. They were all similar sit on tops in about the 10' range (Cobra, Ocean, etc.)

Ask how thick the hull of the BassPro kayaks are, might be 1MM or two thinner than typical kayaks = less durable and more prone to dents or warping. They probably have good warranty and are constructed well, but like a lot of private lable product, it might not be as good.

Best advice is find a dealer near water and test them out. There are many factors such as your weight, width, room for stuff etc. You can also test how well they paddle and how long your butt can stand sitting in it. Other advice is spend money on a good light weight paddle and also test out seats. They always have sales it seems near or in the middle of winter.

If you can't find a dealer close by go down to most harbors and some lakes and you can rent them.

There are a few for sale right now on BigwatersEdge, good prices and with lots of extra accessories. It's also helpful to know where you are fishing with it, bigger is better for open water but not necessarily the bay or lakes. I have a Tarpon and love it, super fast and plenty stable. As fast, if not faster, than most Hobies and for a fraction of the price.
