Hobie cart recommendation

Which cart... Trax 2 with big soft wheels or hard wheels do you recommend... or is a homemade one just as good and much cheaper

Which Hobie? I have both Hobie carts for the Pro Angler, but I find the Trax with the Wheeleze soft tires a bit too low and the yak a bit too heavy. They're great for soft sand, but I find if I need the cart, I use the one with the taller harder wheels more. I trailer the Pro Angler though, so I don't need it a lot.

A lot of guys have trouble with the soft rolleez tires. They don't seem to last long and are expensive to replace. I now use the hobie Trax2 with the hard wheels and they work good. Don't get the trax1 cart it is too narrow and always wants to roll over. I also put a piece of pool noodle over the uprights to get the kayak up off the wheels a little and also for when I put the cart in the scupper holes for transport on the water they don't stick out the bottom.

Here you can buy the wheels seperate if your making your own ...
Hobie Kayak Wheels - Sports & Outdoors - Compare Prices, Reviews and Buy at Nextag - Price - Review

If you do make your own ,,nice to make them so they fit in the scuppers like the Hobies do ..


These are the ones I bought ,,, not for soft sand but I walked my kayak about a mile on a cranberry bog road with these .. like walking the dog ..

I have soft wheels for my hobie and have no complaints.. i can wheel it 2 blocks form my house and go for a paddle no problem. Id much rather have soft wheels going over any sort of terrain than hard wheels...
