Castaic again, new ride

Got rid of the Revo, and jumped into a 2017 Outback. What a world of a difference. The 180 and Vantage seat rocks Got a feel for being on the ride as well as doing some bassing again at the lake. Gonna switch gears into the salt soon









Tough picking with the cold front the last couple days but made the most out of it

Now that you've been in an Outback and Revo, how do you compare the two?

I'm very curious on your thoughts, especially from a bass angler perspective...

I'm really loving this outback, I do have to say the revo was an older model and this vantage seat and 180drive is a world of a difference. But being on the lake w the Revo I felt very limited with storage of multiple set ups..even though I had the rails and not really being able to stand up for casting in certain areas. I was lower to the water in the revo and when I would go to scoop up the bass I didnt feel comfortable being sideways. I sure did get to the end of the lake faster in the revo. Now with this 180 I can be in tight areas and stay in place while working the area which is great! There was one cove that I produced most my bites without having to reposition. Definitely going to make my way over to the salt eventually but these bass wont let me go!

Yaaa man its so fun, I just head over to the lake cause I'm only 20 min away from it. So getting that mid week itch out is ideal for it! I def want to venture out to the salt
