Anyone have some experience with this boat? Have a chance to pick it up a 2018 model with overdrive for 1500 today. Looking for pros and cons.

 

As always, thanks in advanced for the excellent advice!!

I have a Lure 13.5, while it doesn't track that great and is on the heavy, it is a stable platform and comfortable. If you can get with boat and the overdrive for 1500 you are way ahead of the game, considering those separate would put you over 2 grand.

I bought one in April '18 to go along with my '14 Lure 11.5 (pre-overdrive).

 

Firstly, $1,500 is a steal.  Mine was $2,300 from Austin Kayak.

 

The Pros:

  • All day comfortable seat.
  • Stable as an aircraft carrier for stand up fishing.
  • Ample in-hull storage.
  • Wheel in the keel makes for easy transport.
  • Easy to rig (i.e. fish finder, anchor trollies, rod holders).
  • Can fish with/without Overdrive unit (think shallow, weedy waters).

The Cons:

  • Rear axle needs replacement every couple years.
  • Rudder steering system needs fairly frequent adjustment.

Overall I really like my Overdrive Lure.  It's well thought out and light enough to lift on my Tundra's ladder racks with the seat & overdrive removed.  Normal pedaling gets me just about 4 MPH.

 

Lastly, FeelFree's customer service is outstanding.  I've had a couple small problems with my '18 Lure that were taken care of quickly.  The folks at FeelFree return your calls and emails too.
