Deadrise 17 HPX-V vs. 17 HPX-S


Recommended Posts

Really depends on what type of fishing you plan to do. Where are you located?

DRAFT: The S is 2-3 inches shallower in draft. That may not seem like a lot but it all depends on the areas you fish.

RIDE: The V is going to have a smoother less "pounding ride" due to the dead-rise. However I will argue that the S is actually drier. Its nearly impossible to get wet in the boat.

POLEABILITY: The 17S and 17V is very close in pole ability... I would give the nudge 17S.
