another Stealth

Postby chunk9000 » 08 Sep 2018, 21:40

So after dreaming about the profisha 525 for a while I finally decided it was time. I've fished with a few of you guys with Stealths and I was sick of trying to keep up while you were cruising. Picked this one up second hand from a motivated seller in Sydney well below the advertised price. Has the usual scuffs and scratches you'd expect but in great condition overall. I took it out for the first paddle today and did a few re-entries. Apart from the sounder it's pretty much stock so I'll need to get a few of Cheaters fabrications from Eoin.
Lots of reviews around on the profisha's but the one thing that really stood out for me today was stability. I was able to move around much easier on this than my X13 and it actually took a bit of effort to tip it over. Also with the reduced primary stability it's pretty easy to do re-entries, definitely much easier than my X13.

Yep. I was OK till Nath talked me into it. Didn't take much convincing though. Make fishing with you easier Keith, given how far you normally paddle/peddle!

Nice to see the purchase panned out well for you Trent, welcome to the gang :thumbsup:
There are a few bargains getting around on second-handers at the moment and more to come when the container of livewell models hits these shores and guys start trading up.
