    I am debating on getting a 2480 DLX model or the new 2590 DLV model. Question is does anyone on any of the new DLV models? They have a 10 degree deadrise and rounded gunnels and I was wondering if it made that much difference in keep you dry on a windy/choppy water day. If it's the same, not gonna pay the extra money for the DLV.

    Thanks.

    i did not notice a lot of difference. consider the 2590 dlx. only diff is that it is 10" wider than the 2480, but that is alot of difference in walking room

    I hear ya on the 10 inches in walkroom. The other element in this was I can get the 2 - 30 gallon livewells on the 2480 but not the 2590. Not a huge deal killer but it's nice to have to skip those gizzies alive when flathead fishing - but as always I could make my own with the DLV model.

    Well that's one vote to no difference in the splash factor - thanks GMC
