As much as people can talk about gear, fishing and kayaks on forums, social media and in person, absolutely nothing can duplicate the actual experience of getting in a kayak and seeing how it fits your body. That's why these demo day events put on by Massey's are so awesome - rather than having to pay to rent a kayak, folks are able to come by and try out several kayaks in a short time period, comparing them back to back. I was there representing Jackson, and people had some fine compliments about both the FlexDrive models, and the paddle kayaks, particularly the Mayfly. At the end of the day, my son got a chance to jump in a kayak (on dry land) and loved it. Thanks to Dave Woodward at Massey's for organizing this event.
