Rated 5 out of 5 by Ol'John It's great for how I use it
I've had my EX for about 5 years, and used it for hundreds of hours on a 70 acre lake in northern PA with restricted outboard motor size, so the water is calm. For this situation, the little boat is perfect. It's stable and works well with a 45 lb motor. The seat is comfortable for hours; it's a world better than sitting on the bench of a johnboat. It's great for one fisherman. It's ok for two if they're reasonably skilled about casting and being aware of their backcasts.
I wouldn't buy it for an environment with a lot of big power boat traffic, or bigger water where there may be significant waves.
If you're doing the Walden Pond thing, this is great. I'm very happy with mine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Not Happy Not as stable as advertised
As a one man it is just okay. With two people you will have to be careful. The boat rides to low in the water. Be careful of currents or wash from passing boats. It comes right over the sides. And once the boat get water it rides lower and becomes more unstable. I don't like the access hatches as they allow water to get into the hull. Nowhere to store your rods safely, so if two people are in the boat you better find a way to secure them. Pelican makes a much better boat - "Bass Raider" !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Louisiana318 Bass boat review
The boat handles great and really moves with a low power trowling motor. It is well made and has some good qualities that other plastic boats lack. It has a drain plug, vents to ventilate between the inner and outer hulls. and a way to drain water out if it gets between the hulls. I use it to fly fish from and find it very stable and comfortable. The little boat does not put out much of a wake and does not spook the fish with it's movement. The only negative factor I have found is that it is heavy (135 lbs.) and that the manufacturer recommends that it not be left out in the sun light. I guess that over time, the UV rays from the sun will damage the polyethylene hull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Muff Great improvements
Had the older green one and bought this new one and WOW what a difference. Nice seats/dry storage/cup holders/new grooves in bottom. I have a 20' bass boat but i really like this little boat to get into some of the little ponds (especially getting right up to the cypress trees) the we go to. First time out we caught 4 fish. Overall I have been very pleased with my decision to purchase this boat.

by The Nickster One great little fishing pontoon boat
took it out on maiden voyage, i am 300lbs, easy to get in and out of at the shore, does not tip bad, handles really heavy weight without being tippy or unsafe to move around in our step in and our. Seats slide to distribute weight, in boat, just really great pond, small lake fishing boat. Buy one if you like to fish.
