Title always gets attention.. the last one turned into an Allison debate.
After fishing tournaments from Allison boats for 25 years. I don't waste my time arguing about there abilities or lack of anymore. The XB-21 BasSport is the real deal. I'm perfectly happy to be the only Allison in a field of 200 boats no matter the conditions.
For those interested David has put together another nice video, just watch it and save the negative comments...We've heard them all.

Nice video. I commented on the end of the "fastest boats" thread from last week that the white/yellow/black Ally in the last video that was posted on that thread was the best looking boat I've ever seen. Then there's the fact it has run 106mph before. flehan Honestly I have never fished from one, and I'm a bit afraid to do so until I can afford one- which may be never- but I would never hate on you guys.

If I wasn’t in a Bass Cat I’d be in an Allison. Lifelong family friend in Tennessee has owned Allison’s since way back, he wouldn’t own anything else. He’s in his 70’s and his son and I fished out of his Allison in high school. His Grandson has an Allison now. They make a great boat and are fast, not much else comes close.

I know they are a quality boat and run like a spotted [censored] ape, just don't care for the looks, would like to take a ride in one.

like many things in life-- You have to know "when to say when"
as shown in David's video, it's not all about speed. thumb

Yes sir . Not sure what year they started, my 2006 model had (docking lights) that were stationary . They also offer head lights.
I can't remember which brand but there's at least one more company with them now.

I'd consider them docking lights more than headlights.

Nice. I would drive one.


The RIGHT to an opinion does not give any validity to that OPINION.

One of the new Basscats has lights. Maybe more of them.
