    WTF?

    From Owners Board:

    Andy and BCB parted as very good friends and with the blessings on the move. He is always welcome back and this was strictly a business decision. Bullet is trying to open their market in tournament angling as the high performance market has seriously dwindled.

    We wish him the best!

    BCB Admin.


    Not really trying to stir the pot, but I don't think the high performance market as dwindled... what was the purpose behind the Eyra? Am I wrong, or do I not understand? Please enlighten me.

    I find the comments of recent a bit passive aggressive as well. I think when they tried to make the Eyra fast and it ended up being similar to their other boats they found just how hard those last few mph are to get...there were posts last week about fast boats not being able to carry loads how about a little 200 still busting 80 with 3 or 4 adults how's that for a load carrying yeah it's a Bit slower than 87/88 solo but its still fast..my bad....my bad about being quick as hell and turns as hard as you can hold on as well... Sorry for intruding on the bullet board if I fished more it would be what I ran but I drive around a lot. I have seen the comments the last few weeks as well....maybe with the new layout they are afraid of losing market share

    I just didn't see nor understand the need for the last comment. If it's about business then let it be....

    I am sure someone will be along shortly to educate me.

    Their niche is being the fastest cookie cutter. The new boat may be a little too fisherman friendly, priced a little too well and a little too fast for their liking

    If only fishing was a bigger concern for me.....I think if I bought a bullet at the moment I would choose a 20cc

    I love how you post the same damn thing in the BCB forum, get a good answer from BCB themselfs, you accept there answer and then apologize for stirring the pot, and then come back over here and talk S#*t about BCB. The sad thing is I dont own a BCB or a Bullet, I was looking for pics of Andy Morgan's new ride for the 2013 FLW season and now I have a bad taste in my mouth for Bullet. Im just venting but sometimes I think half the people on BBC are here just to talk about other people!

    Is the new model Bullet just came out with going to be the boat Andy is going to be running? I don't know why but I was looking for Andy's boat with a wrap everything on it. I've never seen a fully rigged Bullet before, there's just not a lot around where I am.

    Yes,

    he will run the new model, they Are about to unveil it at some shows soon, and Andy's boat isn't built yet from the way it looks.

    No talking sh*t on anyone. Just posed the same question as I did on the BCB board,and asked for someone to better explain a comment they made that seemed to be talking shit on a brand, that's all... You, sir are right, half the people here on BBC are just here to talk bad about people... lol. that would have been why i asked that question in the first place! What's the reason for the bad taste in your mouth from BULLET?

    Why does BCB representatives have to be present on these boards? I don't respect their presence or their comments and would never purchase one of their products because of this.

    Yep yer right, but read Andys statement on Bassfan. I do have to agree that High Performance boat sales have dropped due to the economy.

    If you are refering to all boats as high performance I will agree....

    We have lost a few brands lately and only created one new one (to my knowledge)

    All PLAYTIME markets have taken an absolute beating.....Funny enough even Golf.....

    When things are good we can play....when things are bad....We tend to stay close and hold on to what we have.

    Luckily enough we have managed to see money move to keep businesses flowing even though chit is bad

    We have seen NEW boats being sold up and down the boards....But more than that..Restore is on the rise again "Cheaper to Keep her" mentality has kicked in

    That just doesn't go for high performance boats... that's been the last 4 years in EVERYTHING if I am not mistaken, but again I can take criticism. Tell me where I am wrong.

    What I dont understand is how is changing the deck "moving away from the the speed thing". The xrs should run the same speeds or within a 1-2mph of the 21x boats.
