Dang! All this praise gettin heaped on the Hobie Mirage Drive. Well, I have met a couple of yak fishers with Hobies, and they really like theirs, too. Thanks FLYRODR and d_w_hart. I hope to get to try one out soon. Maybe this Wednesday, as I'm yak fishing then with someone who's got a Revolution. You can go in reverse? Cool! I'd always heard that the Mirage Drive only goes forward. They must have come up with an improved design on the drive.
