I will be getting a new boat in the near future. Before the Charger 210 came out it would have been a phoenix hands down. Now I'm having trouble deciding between the two. What do you guys think?

Personally, I'd have to ride in the 210. From the video I really like the 210. I've never personally been into the Phoenix boats but then again I've never rode/fished in one. Only set in it in the showroom/boat show. I think the Charger has more standard options that are actually fishing related that would normally be upgrades.

The 2 phoenix's I have had the opportunity to ride in were sweet boats. One was in a 921 on some big stuff on Rayburn. Rode like a Cadillac. That's what has me turned on the phoenix. The ride is right up there with a champion. It seems like the Charger 210 Elite might be better finished out.

When will you be selling this boat? If soon, send me some pics. You could keep the talons for your new boat.

Blakes boats in Corsicana at 903-872-1282 has one on order, call them and make an appointment for a demo ride when it arrives. I also have one on order and when it arrives I will be more than happy to take anyone on a demo ride. I saw and drove them this past weekend at the dealer meeting in Branson Mo. and they are everything people have been raving about.

Both great boats and I really don't think you can go wrong either way. I have had a 921 Phoenix since 2012 and love every single thing about it. No complaints what so ever on my rig.

I have the Stratos Elite 210 and if the charger is anything like the stratos I will buy again. I had a 203 champ previous and by the looks of the video Charger has upgraded the deck and storage.

I just bought a 2017 Phoenix 921. Best riding boat I've been in. Lots of standard options. I was fishing a 20ft Cobra before that. I loved the ride in that.........then I got a Phoenix and was blown away. Wow. On my demo ride in the Phoenix we put the trolling motor down and that's what sealed the deal. There were 3 full grown adults walking around that boat. All 3 of us stood on the same side and there was minimal tilt. You didn't have to worry about being thrown in the water. The ride in rough water was very dry and rode like a Cadillac. I talked to Greg Hackney, who drives a Phoenix, and he said "when it's too rough for that boat to go out, no one goes out". Call Fain at Fun and Sun and he'll take care of you.

I'm not sure you could go wrong in either boat. The 921 should be just a hair faster, both will ride and fish great. Both should be pretty evenly priced. Just me personally, I can't stand the seats in the new 210. They make the whole boat look cheap. Other than that it's a good looking ride. I say go do some serious ride or drive time in both. One will fit you better.
