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.

I kind of liked them. Looked like a painted aluminum boat to me. I would feel right at home. grin.gif

    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
    • great job. makes it 5 for 5 for team 5 congrats on a nice tom, 57 and that willl give our team score a boost
    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug.
