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

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
