Manufacturer Description:
The Old Town Predator MX Kayak is the ultimate kayak for sportsmen delivering a perfect platform for fishing and on-water sporting. The Predator MX, or Mixed Water, features a slightly more rounded hull, designed for moving water conditions such as rivers without sacrificing the Predator's class leading stability and performance. The versatile Element seating system gives you that stability while seated, yet can be quickly flipped out of the way for poling, sighting and casting. The Predator MX also features a spacious Exo-Ridge deck providing the perfect standing platform, room for extra gear or a furry companion. The side-mounted paddle storage, dual tackle holders, dual-tip rod holders at the bow, side-mounted retainer bungees, molded paddle rest, removable mounting plates, and a large bow hatch with the Click Seal cover make this the ultimate fishing kayak.

• Element seating system designed specifically for the angler

Here are my observations after using the Coosa HD and Predator MX side by side. 

Seat and Comfort: HD seat with the thermarest lumbar support is more comfortable. Both are very good. HD seat comes out, which is nice for transportation and camping. Storage under MX seat is better. MX foot pedals are more comfortable but the adjustment tabs have also caught on things in the past. Winner: Coosa

Rod Storage: Neither company has really mastered the horizontal rod storage concept. The HDs rod tip protectors are much better and the location where the rod butt sits is more out of the way. The MX strap system is easier to use. The rod tubes in the Coosa angle straight back and lower which is less likely to snag limbs, but could get in the way with a lot of camping gear in the back. All the gear tracks make HD much more customizable. Winner: Coosa

Paddling: I’m not sure I noticed a difference. Maybe if I loaded 100# of gear one would stand out. Winner: Draw

Storage: HD front storage is larger and the bigger opening is nice. The rear hatch can hold a good amount of gear too. The MX can store a lot more behind the seat. Both designs have compromises. Winner: Draw

Maneuverability: Like with paddling, I did not notice much of a difference. Maybe an ever so slight advantage to the Coosa with the seat in the rear position. Too close to call. Winner: Draw

Stability and Standing: I can put all my weight on one foot it both boats without tipping. The HD seems to give a bit less. The padded deck is WAY better when bare foot. The MX deck is more rigid. Winner: Coosa by a hair

Transport: MX has better handles on the front/back (both molded) and sides. I can carry the Predator with the rigid side handles a lot easier than with the soft(ish) HD handles. Both are heavy. The non-removable MX seat has gotten in the way at times but I have always been able to figure something out. Winner: MX

Conclusion: The two boats are very comparable. If I was buying them new, I don’t think I could justify the extra $500 for the Coosa HD, especially when Old Town has a lifetime hull warranty. Bottom line, the Predator MX is a better value

I've been wanting to try one of those Predators for a while, You should be able to sell it, it's a fair price.
