Very good question!!
I think I bought the right boat. God knows I wanted one for a long time. For the most part I am very pleased with my Basscat.
I guess it would have to be Phoenix or Ranger. I loved my Ranger and it was a great boat.
The Phoenix has some features that other boats dont. The main one is the all aluminum gas tank. No more gas small when you open the rod box or lids. The vapors dont come thru like the plastic tanks. 95% of bass boats have plastic. On thing about a Phoenix people dont know is they are heavy. They weigh more than some Rangers just depends on what model. They also dont run as fast, kind of like a Ranger. Ranger was like fishing off a dock, it didnt move!!
BassCat is like all those boats rolled into one. They say total performance boats for a reason.
It has a high performance hull, stable, fishes great, rides smooth, drives great and can also go fast. Some cats can run down a bullet or stay with them. I am talking the puma, eyra, and cougar. Some of which has hit 80-85 MPH. Everyone will differ on this.
