It should fit his style of shallower water fishing. If John Cox can win the Forest Wood Cup without a transducer on the boat running a Crestliner....

Probably will make for a few rough rides on big water like the Great Lakes. He will miss the Skeeter then. No doubt he got a better deal to move over.

Express makes a heck of a boat. I always said if I went to an aluminum rig I would look hard at Express.

Yep. I really like them but as far as competitive fishing goes, the shallow draft and light weight make for a tough time in the wind . . . otherwise, IDMAS. I had one before getting my Skeeter Bay, which also blows like an empty water bottle on the surface. Nobody paying me to try to hold a hump in 25 mph winds though . . . so I can head to the casa if it isn't any fun.

Not sure it really matters much for him, he's always way up a muddy creek shallow regardless. Cox has done the same thing and always competitive. Now getting to his spot in high winds could be an issue but BASS has erred on the side of caution recently and just about don't let the guys go out in high winds bad storms anymore they just cancel or shorten the day...

these boats ride a lot better than you would think the 21 ft boat weighs 1590 lbs which is not a light boat.

I don't think the ride is that bad but that seems like a pretty light boat for 21 feet.

Weight has less to do with it than design. Old procrafts we're heavy as hell but they literally beat your guts in

I heard it’s a Hard boat to beat... especially if you put a Min Kota Ultrex on the front of it for those super windy days! Anyone know what the price is on a fully rigged one? I’ve heard from 48k-52ish anyone else have any knowledge on this??

I'm sure you could add some fuzzy dice and whatever other redneck douchery to this one and end up around $50k

I have an old procraft, it is heavy and rides like a oldsmobile.... glides across the water.
I am looking at the express, but at that price point, I couldn't do it. wonder how resale value holds up
