Producer RNT-V, World champion Duck Caller and Public Relations manager for RNT Calls Inc in Stuttgart AR.
Having the good fortune to spend a great deal of time in and around a lot of boats, I’ve learned to appreciate quality, performance and aesthetics.
I have a choice which boat I can run, that choice is Xpress. From bow to stearn, it is obvious Xpress strives to build a boat that is tough as nails, handles like a dream, and looks great on the water!
Chosen by champions, check one out, you’ll be glad you did!
3 time World Champion Duck Caller, Executive Producer of RNT-V, Owner and President of RNT Calls Inc.
Growing up duck hunting and fishing here in the heart of the Grand Prairie and spending time in a boat is second nature. I have a choice and my choice is Xpress Boats. Great performance, amazing handling characteristics in shallow and deep water, superb structural integrity, all wrapped up in great looking package.
Whether your looking for a duck boat or a bass boat, look no further than Xpress boats, they are the Choice of these champions!

What Do you like best about your X19:
The ruggedness and versatility of my Xpress is no doubt my favorite feature. I fish a lot of shallow, treacherous tidal water areas so I can’t afford to be worrying about hurting my hull while I’m shooting across stump-filled flats. I also enjoy the jealous looks I get from the fiberglass guys when I motor across shallow creek mouths that they can only dream of getting to on low tide.
Also, with me being in college I don’t have the luxury of storing my boat in a garage or under a canopy so it is exposed to the elements 365 days a year. Upon hearing that most boat owners would cringe, however I have peace of mind because unlike fiberglass boats, my Xpress bass boat doesn’t have a fragile gel-coat that is vulnerable to the sun and other elements so I do not have to worry about expensive repairs to my hull over time.
Overall, I believe that my Xpress boat is the best platform that not only fits my needs as a college angler but also performs above and beyond my expectations as a tournament angler.

Paul contributes his success to his Xpress Hyper-lift hull being able to navigate around, or over any stump or log jam that others would be afraid to attempt. Paul states that Xpress is the only boat he will own and has his sights on an X19 or X21 powered of course by Yamaha.
