If you're looking at the two listed, The Lynx is pretty much gonna be hard to beat with a Ranger

You can add Phoenix to the list especially the 921 and PHX 21

While i can't personally speak on the Lynx, i fish with two fellas that have been long time Basscat guys, both have went to the Skeeter FX, my Uncle has a 2016 Puma, and swears his 98 Pantera II rode better than his Puma does.

Phoenix, Triton, or Bullet. Any of those 3 do it for me.

Ranger
BassCat

Phoenix

Not in any order. They are all good boats. You just need to go look hard at them and decide which one you like the best as far as layout. I would include Legend in that group too but I fear they are not long for this world.

I would also keep my eye out for the new Vexus. They will be bringing their fiberglass boats out in a few months. If my suspicions are accurate they will bring a premium quality boat to market $10-$15K lower than the ones mentioned above to gain market share for the first 2-3 years then raise the price as they sign on Pros.

If you've followed Phoenix this was their marketing strategy. The dealer near me has Phoenix & Skeeter on the same showroom. I was amazed at how much boat you could buy for the $$ when Phoenix first hit the floor. Then they started gaining popularity and signing BASS Elite pros. A few years later they are more than the Skeeters rigged identically.

I will be watching that too, I've also heard they will be a premium boat with the first 100K loaded price tag, we shall see, as for the whole deal with legend its a d@mn shame.
