New or Used?

If your budget is tight, my opinion is that you would do best getting a gently used, higher end yak than a new, entry level cheaper yak.
If you're serious about 'yakin, you will likely find you want to upgrade from a basic model fairly quickly.
My advice is to demo several models that interest you and then constantly monitor the classifieds.
Good deals regularly pop up on the classifieds on this site and others like Craig's List and the Bayou Coast Kayak Fishing Club. The thing is, good deals go fast. You need to have several choices in mind and have the funds available when one comes up for sale.
You can also try local yak dealers as some take trade-ins and thay also regularly have their demo yaks for sale.
Good luck and let me know if you have any specific firstname.lastname@example.org
