WS Tsunami 135 and140 Pro (not poly)
Posted by: WaterBird on Jun-14-14 11:35 AM (EST) Category: unassigned
Does anyone have any feedback specifically on the Pro versions? Handling etc. The width of 23" is narrower than most for 13' or 14'. The chines and flared bow look like it would be stable.
The 135 Pro is marketed for small paddlers and women. Why? The depth is 14.5" and the cockpit is 18.5 x 35. Those dimensions would be right for a pretty large paddler.

It looks like the Tsunami Pro is a rare item at dealers.
The Pro may be in a tough niche|

The price and features may seem like overkill to most of the likely buyers for the Tsunami line, and fancy enough to get buyers that are willing to look just a bit higher into more aggressive touring boats.

What is it about the Tsunami that would make it not deserve to be bumped up to Pro level, or justify the price?

I've paddled the plastic 135. I'm 5'9", 155lbs. I thought it fit me better than the rest of the Tsunami line. Still plenty of room, but the other Tsunamis all felt huge.
