2016 Hobie Mirage Outback Olive
I have an outback & a PA14.
I've used both fins in both yaks. Turbo fins are more powerful & efficient & I can more effeciently move with the turbo fins. At the same time my adult son used my outback with turbo fins & I could keep up with him in my pa14 with standard fins. But''ve spent a lot of time on the water in the kayak & he hasn't. You will get used to whatever you have.
I just purchased the 180 turbo fins & will use them on the PA & wife will use my turbo fins on her outback.
I'm hoping that before you purchase you spend the time on the water & try out whatever yak you are considering. I tried natives & hobies, & was 100% sure I wanted a native, until I demmoed some yaks. I've had extensive knee surgery & found the native uncomfortable for me. I've bicycled extensively since my knee surgery & was sure the native was the right solution. (there is nothing wrong with natives, but there is something wrong with my knee.) I found for me & my knee the hobie drive was easier on my body.
And a 2nd on Delaware paddle Sports. they loaned us 4 yaks, & wife & I demoed an outback, revo, native & a PA and I immediately made my decision.
Everyone is different & kayaks are different enough that you need to sit in one on the water & see how it feels.
