Default Recon Walleye Boats

Does anybody know anything about Recon Boats? I happen to notice there is a new one for sale in the classifieds. Interested to hear if anybody has road in one or owns one and what they think of it.

I've never been in one.
The ones I ever saw were bass boats.

I can't answer any of your questions, and that is the first one I have seen. Looks like a nice boat though. Looks like if a Ranger and a YarCraft were to mate, that is what the off spring would look like. lol

That is exactly what I thought. That is why I am interested to hear reviews because it looks like a nice boat for a good price. It is very difficult to beat a ranger but if the price is right and it is close in performance and options this boat could do very well.

Default recon

Guys Recon is a Fishing boat that is a "splash" of the old Sierra family ski boat. they are made here in Wisconsin, very small builder. Ive seen the New 2010 Model in person, its alot better than the 17footer, but still a splash. Its a competitor to a Name Brand Aluminum boat so Id say Ride and Decide...I know the rep so call if you need info. Brannon 920-295-2069

A splash is when they make a mold off some one elses hull, changing just enough to be legal supposedly. Remember the old TP boats? They were splashes of a Tuffy. Lets see if you can list any more?
