Hi all. I'm new to the forum. This may have been discussed before but I cannot find any direct comments on the pros and cons between Water Master and Water Strider kickboats. I'm based in New Zealand so from a cost perspective the Water Strider is the better option as it is manufactured in New Zealand by Incept Marine. Importing a Water Master into New Zealand involves shipping costs, the NZ$ - US$ exchange rate, a 15% goods and services tax and probably a 5% import duty. So a Water Master is going to cost me significantly more than a Water Strider. I think I read somewhere that WS are more expensive that WM in the US. The larger WM Kodiak looks to be a more capable raft and the board seat support looks to provide a more stable seating arrangement as well as providing somewhere to stand for spotting fish and casting on calm water. I would be grateful for any comment on whether the pros for a Water Master would outweigh the additional cost.
