hey man - I see this post is over a year old... I am about to pull the trigger on this very same boat. the boys on MMT really don't have anything good to say about these things but guys around here have had great success with 'em. all the wardens run 'em and keep ordering them. other than being heavy as $hit I don't see anything wrong with them.

can you give us your thoughts after using it now for a year and heading into another season?

thanks man.

The guys on MMT don't have anything good to say about any boat not made in Louisiana or SE Texas! As a co-founder of that site I hate what it has become. I don't even go there anymore although there are still a few knowledgeable folks & you can still get good info on there some. The excel is what many call an Arkansas style boat. Nothing wrong with the way they perform. Weldbuilt, Alweld, Sea Ark, War Eagle, etc been making boats for a LONG time & they do fine. They don't perform as well with a mud motor as a boat made for a mud motor. Take a hard look at EDGE boats! They are built by weldbuilt & the original founder of Excel boats. I'm not pimpin edge but they run & a lot of folks are buying them. Just a thought!

Great boat!!! Recently upgraded to the Excel F4 and love it. Have taken it out for some scouting and early teal hunting and it performed great. Can't wait to take it out for the regular season. Good Hunting!

IMO, the only issue with Arkansas style boats (Xpress Hyperlift models being the exception) is the relatively straight sides (made for running timber) will be very wet should you have to cross open water in a heavy chop/breeze as you and crew will end up looking like drowned pups. Been there, done that.

Absolutely love mine. Don't listen to the haters on mmt. Run it in the skinnys and wide open rough water not a drop of splash water in the boat.

Beautiful setup, I was on the fence between the Excel & the Pro-Drive for quite some time. I love my PD, but I'm sure I'll be owning one of these as well at some point....

I've got a older excel made in 2006 with a outboard on it I love it, I've had it in some pretty big rough water before it wasn't bad if you drove it right.
Red neck engineering- If ya can't fix it with duck tape, bailing wire, zip ties, and JB weld well than it can't be fixed.

If it moves and it aint suppose to duck tape it. If doesn't move and its suppose to put WD-40 on it.

I too read over on MMT and see a lot of hating on Mudbuddy and Excel. I have nothing negative to say about the La. produced rigs but I absolutley love my setup. Mudbuddy has been awesome to work with for anything I have needed or had questions on. I have been hunting pretty hard since season has started and have run over and slammed into many logs hidden under the waters surface. the handle has been jerked from my hand on several occasions along with the boat high centering at spots and it is still running hard. I would reccomend Excel and Mudbuddy to anybody. Awesome looking setup.
