    My butt really hurts from using the pontoon today and it was only 5 hours with two breaks at the launch. Was thinking of adding extra padding to the pontoon. Anyone of you all do this?

    Princess and the Pea? There are stick on kayak seat pads that might offer some relief. I know a couple of cool dudes that have inflatable thermarest seat pads. You just need a bit more natural padding.

    My X5 has the padded molded plastic, no problem there and the new Renegade has the inflatable floor and a 1" padded cloth stadium seat that is so comfortable. The best, and I do have a boney rear...;-)

    I like it a lot. Seat sucks for me. The pontoon handles my weight nicely.

    Gotcha. Isn't it the molded plastic seat too. I know I have the same frame for my X5.

    Is yours a blue seat? If it is the same one... mine needs more mold. Lol

    You use your anchor feature on your toon? I haven't figured mine out yet. Also.... you ever have trouble keeping the scadden bags positioned without leaning too much? You use a rod holder at all?

    Did you extend the foot rests on the frame?

    I don't use the anchor system, but it is easy to hook up. Bolt the pulley to the rear deck and that is the drop down. Then just thread the rope through the right side of the frame.
    Never notice my bags tilting in but I don't know that would notice. Rod holders are on the back behind my left side on the deck...three of them and now I have one on the right side too as I buy a second pole permit. Real fun with to rods and deep nymphing...LOL
