Owners List Likes/Dislikes
Likes: The boat handles
great with hydraulic steering. Rides like a 1999 Corvette.
Love the storage compartments and how they are aligned. Boat sits well
in shallow water, I fish the Ohio River regularly and sometimes it's
just me and the jon boats back in the creeks, what more could I ask for,
I love it!
Dislikes: None as of now, except the paint job just above the
winching ring. I wish the hull was uniform in color.

2001 Blazer 202 Pro w/Yamaha 225
Likes: This boat is very
easy to drive with the proper setup and carrries weight really well.
The look of the boat and stripe patterns are very sleek. This is
one of the most stable boats I have fished out of. There is hardly
any side/side movement when fishing. The decks are huge and have
plenty of storage as well as big livewells. It has all the
amenities you need for tournament fishing. It handles rough water
well and holds tight in turns.
This boat will also get you there faster than most. There are only
a few boats that will beat it but none for the price. This rig
cost me $24,400. How many boats this size can you say that
about? My next boat will definitely be another Blazer.
Dislikes: The few dislikes I had are now incorporated in
the new Blazers and I have modified mine to match, so there really isn't
anything bad I can say about this boat.
2000 Blazer 202DC w/225 Merc ProMax
Likes: I LOVE THIS BOAT! It is
exceptionally FAST (80+ MPH screamer) - make sure to get a hotfoot &
wheel trim. It handles extremely well - very responsive at all
speeds & it is a surprisingly comfortable ride in rough water
(bucket seats are awesome on long rides - stay away from bench
seat). Fishability is excellent. Decks are large &
stable - the hull design prevents excessive rocking when moving from
side-to-side. Livewells are large and well designed. There's plenty of
large, lockable storage spaces - both rod box lids & rear
compartment have gas shocks. The large rear door is nice - no more
cussing over bleeding fingers when working in the 'hole'.
Best of all was the price - I got a loaded 202 w/a 225 for under
$25K. I've fished in a lot of $35K+ boats which I don't like
nearly as well as my Blazer 202. I don't mind that it doesn't have
a whole lot of extraneous bells, whistles & gadgets - I'm not paying
$10K for gadgets or a name. The 202 does have most of the useable
options I like and is a quality product. I haven't had any
problems so far & the dealer I bought my boat from claims Blazer
provides excellent customer service.
Dislikes: The only options I would
like to see Blazer offer are rod & tackle organization systems. (I
put in aftermarket stuff).
