    I hate to say it, but it's got a big-ol scratch on one side

    Matt, bring it to me and I'll see if we can wet sand it out.

    I was really surprised at how well a bullet rides. Jack has a 1997 21xd and it rides as smooth as any skeeter I have ever ridden it, plus the extra topend helps. But I haven't ridden in the new skeeters. I hope to bum a ride from Andy one day, maybe bribe him with a six pack. I hear they are the new standard and from now on "rides like a skeeter" is the compliment a Cadillac strives for. We shall see.
    I like skeeters, people think I hate them. I just love speed and don't love slow. Maybe skeeter has gotten better and deserves to put "performance" in their name, I have my doubts. To me, Performance boats are Allison, Stroker, Bullet and Gambler. I put those in order of speed. If looks were the rating, Gambler would be first.
    But Gambler doesn't pay you to fish out of it's boats. It would not matter in my case, I can't win a tournament to save my life.

    I have plenty of seat time in allisons and bullets but have never driven a gambler or stroker. I like the way they all look and I'm sure the build quality of them is the highest in the industry. My 97 is like new in every way, the finish on it makes all others look dull including Skeeters and Nitros, plus it hauls ass and cuts through anything you throw at it...wakeboard rollers or wind driven and turns like a F1 car.

    I think the cookie cutters claim our boats ride rough so they can have at least one thing their boats have that ours don't.
