Triton is honored to have the new X Series torunament bass boat named Field & Stream's 2003 Best of the Best in the boat category!

Field & Stream Best of the Best

Choosing the right gear is never easy—in fact, it's getting harder. That's why we developed Field & Stream's Best of the Best Awards: to help you cut through the hype and find stuff that actually works. The winners of our sixth annual contest were selected by a team of 11 experts, who spent months performing extensive hands-on evaluations of design, durability, performance, value, and innovation on over 200 hunting and fishing products. Ultimately they had to choose one perfect item in each of the 20 categories—a piece of gear that gives you an unprecedented edge, something that can truly make you a more successful sportsman. These are the products that we call the Best of the Best.

Best of the Best/Boats: Triton | X Series Bass Boats

The long run from one hotspot to the next is the bane of the bass fisherman. Bone-jarring waves, quartering seas that wash over the beam, and butt-numbing seats are just a few of the obstacles on the way from Point A to Point B. Triton’s new X Series tournament bass boats have more freeboard and molded depth to handle larger waves and provide a drier ride. Spring-enhanced bucket seats and wider cushions smooth out those rough-water runs, and the front deck has been stretched to 90 inches to create a roomier fishing platform. But the most innovative feature is a retractable ladder, which telescopes out from the stern and makes it easier to climb aboard in case of an accidental dunking. $27,341–$32,316; 888-887-4866;

Why it wins: Great comfort and performance for the serious bassman
