Fished out a one a few times it does sit well in the water but the overall floor plan rod lockers and set up I dont like I dont want to say its junk becuase warriors make a heck of a walleye boat but I think they should stick with that but thats just my opinion

I have not fished out of one,but have looked them over several times at boat shows. Think it would make a heck of a big water bass boat. Was not real crazy about the interior design as previously stated. Would agree Warrior makes a fine walleye boat

I fished out of one last year a few times. They have a good ride and nice handling. They are heavy, which didn't seem to affect the top end speed too much, but I would have to agree that the floor plan needs work.

I will also agree that the floor plan needs work. Tonka is right it seems like a really heave boat, Might just be me but when you think of a Warrior you like walleye boats not bass.

I have yet to ride on one,I have only seen one on a sales floor.. they look to be built like a rough water boat as many have mentioned.. I too didn't care for the layout.. and from the specs, very heavy and slow.. but then again, I cant back that up as I have not been in one...

Warrior makes a very good boat! Not sure I would buy the bass boat version yet...

I agree 100%. Warrior is a tiller boat in my opinion. They make awesome tiller boats, just not bass boats.

Thanks for your comments. I did read an aricle about the 208 XRS in Walleye and Bass boat magazine. They were very positive about the boat. They had it gps at about 72mph. It was stated that the boat is designed to be a bas boat that will give you a superior ride in rough water.

The layout appears to be pretty standard. What particularly do you guys not like about the layout?

I don't like the warrior bass boats either. I was turned off by the "unfinished" look of the decks. They didn't carpet everything. The storage of a warrior compared to a triton, stratos, or ranger is inferior. Take a look at the bottom of the transom. No strakes or hull design at all. Just a flat edge. I'm guessing that will hurt performanc/handling. They have turned back the clock of bass boat design. Warrior is asking big money for these boats. You can buy a new triton and almost a ranger for the same money.

From looking at their HSOforum, as far as layout and storage it looks pretty standard from the pics? like superduty said the unfinished look of the front and rear decks is a real eye sore.

    • Feb. 18, 2017 Chelsea Clinton took to Twitter this week asking her followers for some help identifying synonyms for the words “sick,” “horrifying” and “awful.” “I need a thesaurus. What’s another word for horrifying? Sick? Awful? Running out of adjectives these days that mean unconscionably terrible,” Clinton tweeting, linking to a story about an illegal immigrant who was detained when she sought a protective order against a domestic abuser. Clinton received a lot of responses, but one Twitter user gave Clinton an answer she never expected. That user is Juanita Broaddrick, one of the myriad of women that has accused Clinton’s father, former President Bill Clinton, of rape or sexual abuse. Broaddrick alleges that Clinton raped her in 1978 when he was attorney general of Arkansas. She responded to Clinton’s request by tweeting, “Well, since you asked, Here’s my definition of horrifying, sick & awful. Answer: Your father, Bill Clinton.” Twitter was entertained — and many thought Broaddrick should have added Clinton’s mom, twice-failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, to the list of synonyms for “horrifying” as well:  
    • Sonar units continue to be an anglers best friend. Still some suspended fish out there. Working every fish hard is key. Some fish are players and some pretenders. A good tullibee and perch bite in some areas amongst walleyes / saugers. The anglers working a spoon and a dead stick with a plain hook and minnow are doing good.  Key depth  29-33 ft in the morning/afternoon and 17-24 before dusk.  Best colors continue to be glow red and gold on jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or tail. Snow pack on the lake is disappearing and ice is still very good.   The Rainy River morning and evening bite has been okay. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety. Warm weather and current will effect areas harsher than others.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Up at the NW Angle, fishing has really picked up. The dead stick is producing the most fish with depths under a foot off of the bottom. Lots fish in the slot, as well as some over 28 inches! On the Canadian side, walleyes are being caught in transition zones, with gold and pink and whites being the hot colors. The crappie bite is at 30 ft plus in the mud with Tungsten jigs tipped with plastic. Jigging spoons with a minnow head are also producing fish. Remember to move on to another species after you have your limit of crappies as these fish have a high mortality rate over 25' of water. Work through resorts and stay on ice road. Fish houses can stay on ice through March, walleyes/saugers through April 14th.  
    •   Because some door knob Atheist on a Fishing forum keeps bring it up even though they don't believe in it-oddly?  
    • 23 games in 41 days after the mandated break, and the horrid streak for teams after their break contiunes i think its like 3-13-4.  That is going to put a lot of strain on players playing that many games in that short amount of time.  We will probably be seeing Kemps at least once a week I would guess, but if he can be remotely close to his last start we should be alright.
    •   Where do you get your info?            
    • Thanks for the additional advice. I had been thinking that I didn't need the fancy EPS, ESP, etc.
    •   We don't need Jesus for that - Trump's already got it covered....
    •   Yup.   Being the policeman for the world is straining our finances but some seem to be blind to the fact that inviting more people to come over and risking more going on an already unsustainable welfare state will have the same effect.     Of course, we can continue to just print the money we need. And I don't think Jesus will be performing a Loaves and Fishes type miracle with our currency anytime soon.   I'm beginning to get what Del meant when he said go far enough to the right and you eventually become the left
    • I've got a Dowco cover that is over ten years old.  I use it all the time when trailering.  I have no noticeable damage due to the cover as it ties down nicely and the flapping prone spots have tighteners that take-up the loose canvas material.     And i have chains with the ice/hard-snow studs.  These increase traction by a lot.  I stopped using them since they tear up the sidewalk and driveway when plowing snow.  I do not use my wheeler for pulling a house, yet.
