Default Outback or pa12

I'm torn between the outback and the pa12.

Anyone switched from one to the other?

What are your thoughts after switching or why do you prefer one over the other.

I plan on inshore flats and offshore.

I know everyone is going to say the outback is less expensive but the price is not going to be a factor in my decision.

I have spent some time in a pa but not an outback. I plan to demo of each asap.

Any thoughts you guys have will be greatly appreciated. I don't think I can go wrong either way.

You are going to get a lot of really good opinions. With that being said I will tell you the reason I chose the Revo 13 over the others. I tested them all and my personal preference was that the Revo 13 fit me well. I really like speed and I felt the Revo was leading in that category.

I also like the non-hull slap of the revo (I'm not sure about hullslap of the other two). The biggest reason was I live in a second story apartment and have to carry it over my head to get it down the stairs and there was no way I could do that with a pro angler.

It might be a mental thing but just having a light kayak I can toss in the back of the truck and run down to the bay real quick for a couple hours was a major point for me choosing the lighter of all of the three. I am 6' 190 and when I sat in the revo it just fit me well for some reason.

Btw, I know you were not comparing the revo but just wanted to give you some ideas to think of as far as choosing between those two!
