I rode in my friend's new Evo X. He got the offset console. I liked it and no issues storing rods on that side. I'd do the F70, but that's me.

I've posted this before. The Bob's Mini Jac I have
Plate itself 30 pounds
Pump 12 pounds

The Hull Marine plate looks great and comes in around 33 pound according to him.

Most skiffs are never going to notice the difference of 9 pounds, especially when it is not on the transom.

If I wanted a self contained unit , I'd look at Hull Marine, if I didn't want a self contained unit, then Bob's.

A casting platform also serves the purpose of keeping the dude on the pointy end in in one spot and somewhat reducing the chances of him launching you off the poling platform.
