Nimble and sturdy
A great little boat, for the price. Its reasonably nimble and turns well (I read one review that suggested you needed a football pitch to turn it - not so, but you have to bear in mind it only has the one prop, not 2 jets like the more expensive boats, so you need to learn how to use the controls).
What I particularly like is the "chug along" feature - as you near the spot you want to drop your baits, switch to that and it will slow down to a virtual crawl, allowing a precise drop of your rig and bait.
This feature is also useful mapping the lake with the fishfinder (I opted to get one without a fishfinder and install one myself - personal choice).
The boat also sits well in the water - it ventured out in recent storms and performed admirably.
I haven't tested the range beyond 100meters due to the venues I've been fishing, but 100m was not an issue and I'd be confident in adding another 75m to 100m if needed.
If I have one niggle, it is the pin that holds the trap door in place. It looks fragile, but time will tell as to whether this concern is warranted or not.
To be honest, if you want to take several kilos of bait out in one go, this might not be the boat for you, but if you want a decent little boat that will mange 1kg of bait per trip, that wont break the bank, then I'd certainly recommend this one.Read full review
