Here is the best example I know of a Bullet owner who knew EXACTLY what he wanted in his new Bullet. Clint researched on the internet, read brochures, talked with me, asked other Bullet owners, and finally got with John Webb on the final touches and ordered his dream Bullet. This 20XRD may not be the fastest 20ftr in East Tennessee, but that was by design. This boat has LOTS of fishing nuances that many other buyers simply overlook.
One instance of this is the Torquemaster gearcase. Most new 20ft Bullets are rigged with the blazingly fast Sportmaster case....simply because that is the fastest way to go. But, Clint knew his boat would be primarily a fishing platform and would be loaded heavy to reflect his tackle collecting tendencies. So, he chose the TM gearcase because of its load carrying abilities.
The Lowrance X-27 up front, linked to the 520 in the rear gave Clint the versatility he expected and allowed him to have the bigger screen up front for all that drop shotting he craves to do!
The lowered seats are a must for anyone ordering a new 20ft Bullet. The benefits of the lowered seats include security, safety, comfort, and coolness. So, Clint felt that was the only way for him to go!
A full complement of billetboatproducts.com bling by Mark Peiser, and a tricked out rigging job by John Webb and Clint finish the package.
Clint chose John as his go to salesman for several reasons....attention to detail, knowing what Clint wanted, and a never say quit approach to doing it right made John his only choice. In the end...the Black Pearl is a stunningly clean rig...and whether Clint is at Arnold AFB fighting fire, or in Iraq serving his country as a Air National Guard Firefighter...he has his wonderful wife Meredith and a beautiful black Bullet to come home too! Congratulations Clint on this superfine ride!
