    I cant speak about the 920......so what Im about to say is somewhat pointless to the question asked....but: After test driving the 921, 721; you cant go wrong. Each of these boats are great! The 921 is a great big water boat. Little heavier and a little slower than the 721 but handles rough water better. Plus it has the wider deck....and it is a huge difference. The 721 is a bit more nimble and quicker, but still handles rough water excellently. I have not had a chance to see or ride the 920, but i can imagine its ride will be a happy marriage of the 721 and 921. My bet it that it will be a wider-decked version of the 721.

    Although I did not see it with my own eyes, a 2012 921 w/250 XS, hyd JP, onboard charger, 4 batts, oil, no poles was gettin 81-82. I consider it a pretty reliable source.
    SO..... That being said, I see no reason why the 920 shouldn't beat that.
    I will say, I've heard the 721 ride is the best and now you say the 920 is even better????? music to my ears!!!! and back!!!

    You know some of those BCB'ers are going to argue or gonna have to make the switch if this holds true to a 920 or a 921 hitting 80-81 mph and get rid of that puma or eyra . At least you know what the pay out is if you win a BFL or BASS WKNDR out of a Phoenix is .

    They are too heavy to run 80 with any kind of load. I hope no one buys one that expects it to run 80.

    FX 21 20'10" 250 SHO 77-78 tops(trny load), 1860 lbs (dry)
    FX 20 20'2" 250 SHO 80+(trny load), gets too squirly above 80, 1820 lbs (dry)
    PHX 921 21'06" 250 Pro XS 81-82?, 1950 lbs (dry)
    PHX 721 20'11" 250 Pro XS, blogs say 78-80, I know of 79(trny load), heard some tour guys gettin 84-85...???1850 (dry)

    I know there are some variables however!!!!..... Even though we don't have #'s on the 920, the weights listed here are very similar so consider hull design/efficiency and weight/loads. Phx tested 920 w same load as 921 + 20% and was pushing 77-79 I believe. If I remeber correctly, loads are full fuel 400 lbs +/-, 400 lbs of sand, driver ( 200 +/-), full wells 366 lbs +/-, did I forget anything??? That's approx 1640 lbs (1366+20%). I'm not sure about many of you guys(unless your runnin REALLY long and hard) but are we goin camping or fishing???? plus you're burning fuel= less weight as the day goes. I can see the 920 reaching 80-82 w/ a moderate load maybe a touch more. l should have more for everyone next Thurs night. One thing is for sure though..... what is 2-3 mph when the ride is sooo much better AND the other guy has to slow down cuz he's gettin beat to death and his boat is coming apart???? Just sayin....

    When you get that 921set up to run 81 give me a call. I will fly out there and I will let you take me for an 81 mph ride. If it will gps 81 I pay for my plane ticket. If it does not hit 81, you pay for my plane ticket.

    Those speeds are not going to happen with a 921! Tournament loaded most of my customers are running 73 to 75 and I promise you those boats are correctly set up. The only way to achieve those number are to mount a 300xs and the boat will be empty or very lightly loaded!

    There's a lot of dreamers in here junior you might have to settle them down a bit these aren't bullets. It will take a lot to reach 81-82 I can see 79, but you must not be fishing if you think your getting these kinda speeds.

    My 921, loaded, with just me, 220lbs, ran 75.5 this week. That was on glass smooth water and 87 degrees. Yesterday, with two people, 220 lbs and 275 lbs, it ran a solid 73.2 with the jackplate set on 3. Temp was in the 80s. My 250 ProXs has very low hours, so i am sure it will pick up some. I ran a best of 77+mph back in January when the air was cool. These speeds were going fishing, not playing with the jackplate, etc.

    Well I have a chance to ride in a 921 this coming weekend. It has a 10" hydrallic jackplate, 250 pro xs with a 26 fury, 4 batteries, and ill make sure he has all his tackle in it that he fishes on a normal 2 day tourney, which might be more than most!! Ill make sure his tanks are full with 55 gallons of fuel,and live wells at least half full.. There really big live wells. Also the two of us at about 380- 400 lbs..Missing anything?
