As you know it's now my position that if you can't communicate what you need to know in a few hundred posts or far less, you gotta problem.
The endpoint of "Yakkers Gone Wild" is KFS (with by now close to 300,000 posts), exemplified by the completely idiotic Disco thread - 5000 inane posts alone - in the Florida section. And dominated by a literal handful of monkeys whose main goal is to pick fleas out of one anothers' backs and admire the result.
Not only do I rarely post there, but not much here either - except to review or announce the very few rare but truly important changes in the world of Power Yakfishing (patent pending).
This smackdown qualifies.
Naturally, I rode and reviewed the first Disco in America, the first Dorado, and recently the first Midway. All great designs. The Disco is the best design in plastic currently available, period. It is agile, fast, light and completely seaworthy. Quite fishable. The Dorado was deemed one of my Superyaks, and is a highly respected fiberglass fishing kayak. The derelects especially latched onto this and other Kazkazi designs, as I knew they would.
This was largely (pun intended) due to their large butts and need for banana storage. The only negative: fiberglass is not cheap, and eliminates many average yakfishers of ordinary means, particularly as we face a second depression.
Ergo the Midway - ridden and reviewed by me just weeks ago. I deemed this kayak a likely Dorado killer. Now just as they did when I annointed the Dorado, the simians resorted to their usual spitting chatter and denial. But just as with my Dorado recommendation, they will finally sputter to a stop, and come to recognize the inherent quality and performance of the much less expensive Midway.
I predict it. And to help things along, I even created the first "Monkey Madness Havabanana Sale" as reward for the bone-discovering, early adopting fur balls among them. Still, at this time, the hairy hoardes remain in full denial.
But only publicly!
One of the great indicators of true interest (and quality) is in site visits to particular pages. I decided to check these. Not surprisingly here's what I found. Hits this month...
Of course the Superyaks continue to be reviewed by large numbers. And Kayaking 101 remains a best seller. Thanks to all! Based on these numbers, it is clear that the Midway is hot! Only reviewed quite recently, it has garnered major viewing, and has already shot past the Dorado in interest. I trust that Kayak Jeff will soon sell the only three Midways in America. My only hope is that one of the alpha-monkeys will snag it and put both Luna, and his Dorado in its place.
You heard it here...
