I currently have a Ride 135 which I love because it's light and really stable. I've used it in the gulf, bay, and shallow river running. I'm planning on adding a PA for gulf and bay fishing but I'm stuck between the 12 and 14. I'm leaning towards the 12 because of the weight, but does anyone have experience with both?

If ur looking at the old seat style 14 id get the 12 but if you are loooking at both of fhe newer models then its a closer battle.

The 12 is a little easier to store and move around but really the wieght differance is minimal compared to what ur giving up. The 12 is also quite a bit cheaper then the new 14.

The 14 is more stable , has more storage , and is able to carry alot more weight.(This is important when u got a boat full of giant fish lol. )

The new seat. I've got the large Wheeleez beach cart that works great. I've had issues with my lower back, but it's gotten better since I quit motocross.

In that case if you have the space for it id go with the 14 . Its a 20lb differance but most the time the way the PA is loaded and unloaded u never pick up the full weight. I can tell u first hand they both are horrible to handle in the sand ! Haha

How will u be transporting it?

I haul in in the bed of my truck with a hitch extender so I don't have to lift it very high. Thanks for the comments and insight.
