Can-Am 650 XT Outlander vs. Honda 680 Rincon
« on: Sep 10, 2009, 09:35 AM »
Does anybody here have any thoughts one way or another about the pros or cons in the above two machines for ice fishing?  At some point I would add tracks but to start with it will probably just be regular rubber.  I will be going ATV route vs. snowmobile route due to versatility, carry capacity, etc.  Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

buy the can am its the better choice imo stay away from the Honda. the can am has more power, torque, ground clearance, storage, rack area, more up gradeable, better suspension, better handling, and did I mention its faster. Get the two up and the wife can ride with you, or have more rack area, or put a dump box on for hauling more gear. but that's just my two shinners worth.
thats the biggest smelt i've ever seen

Thanks for the responses folks.  Am trying to hold onto my wallet but am loosing the battle as I'm getting tired of humping my gear to my spots and being limited in fishing locations by that.
