The patent on the Hobie paddle system expires soon or has already when are we going to see some cheaper knockoffs of the Hobies want to get one but am waiting for the price to drop.

Someone on Vyak was saying it's only the patent for the original one, which has since been surpassed by the newer (and still patented) versions of it.

There are already some cheap peddle kayaks on the market (i.e. Kings Kraft) although they use a propeller and you get what you pay for (not much).
2015/16 Species comp total: 289cm
Brown Trout: 37cm
Flathead: 51cm; Squid: 36cm; Australian Salmon: 51cm; Snapper 46cm; Silver Trevally 23cm; KGW: 45cm
