I have seen a video with one man pedaling either the Liquid Logic version or the Native Manta Ray Propel, I can't recall which one it was, and he said that he can pedal at 4 MPH with just that sort of average speed many of us use on the water, about 5 MPH as a top speed. I own a Propel 10 and I would think this is about 1 mph faster in each case. Not sure how this compares to the faster speeds of the Propel 13.
My question is with its pointed bow and stern, if you pull the drive up, or leave it at home, how does this new model paddle? In terms of speed and tracking would be two interesting things to know.
It sure looks like it would be a great paddler; if so, this will be what I would call a very nice "finesse kayak" where an angler could toss on a few Plano boxes, a few rods . . . light weight, easy to get on and off the water.
Anyway, will some of you who have purchased one, or NOG if you have tested/demo'd it on the water, comment on its paddling, please?
