All phoenix seats are adjustable.

The center of the seat lifts out (handy for cleaning also) You loosen 4 bolts with a phillips screw driver on the base and can slide the seat forward.

If you slide it forward a little you can put your net behind the seat during a tourney etc. Like a Nitro has them stored.

Why did he let off at 68 mph? I had that exact boat and mine would do 72 to 74 all day long. But once over 70, the boat would walk real bad. Seems like he didnt want that shown.

My personal opinion was that was a problem, seeing why they came out with the Elite almost the next year. PHX top and Pro XP bottom. I think the Pro XP is way better riding boat than the PHX. But after being in an ELite, I think they got it right with that boat.

Looking forward to your Skeeter review.

I am enjoying the boat reviews. I personally figured out this past week on the 921Elite as I had to use the passenger side Right hand oh [censored] handle often, grab the handle with your palm side up, then the fit is nice with enough space.
Thx for the vids

Like the boat reviews. Wished this had been around 7 years ago. Don't hate my boat and may have still bought same one but it would have been sweet to have the info you give. Still bug eyed about that Blazer. You got me thinking with that one. On here you reviewed a Gambler and it was older. You made the comment that Gambler was not in production so you did not have a new one to review. I have seen a couple of what they are saying are 2020 Gamblers on youtube they are running. Are these special order or did they not have any at the time of your review? Just curious more than anything. Can't wait to see what you end up picking.

I think it is time we start taking wagers now on which one Ken is going to order.
I have a hunch which one.

921 Elite


That’s my bet. I said after my PHX that I would never buy another Phoenix. But I’d roll a 921 Elite. That boat handled completely different than the PHX.

You liked it better than the PHX? I have been happy with mine but haven’t been in the Elite.

Yup.
I’m in a FX 21 now. Next boat will be a FXR. But would consider an Elite.
