When you look at a Sabre you tend to compare it to bargain boats, and it is no bargain boat. You can updress this model with the Advantage Elite package, and nothing falls short as it is a package for seasoned anglers. Team it up with one of the new four strokes, and you have a rig that will outlast any payment plan you choose. The Sabre was brought out to enhance the market trend to smaller rigs in a time when an economy began to wane. Many anglers have slipped back to this top end 18’ rig and 150 for their choice. They continue to fish and seek a lighter more easily maneuvered rig, which has fuel mileage matching their needs today with performance just behind that of the maxed-out Pantera II.
