I can win the z518 with my old ranger in FLW?

Postby chrislaskowski » Tue Oct 25, 2011 7:32 pm

Got the email today saying all you have to be is ranger cup qualified to win the cash and Z518 with a 200 hp? I read all rules for ranger cup and no where did I see that it has to be a specific year. I was selling my older ranger because I bought a new basscat but if this is true I better keep my old boat.

Yes I read that but if you go to the FLW website and look at the contingency awards all it says is you must be ranger cup qualified does not specify a year model or first owner like in the past im going to call them and will update.

This is from FLW website.

Ranger Cup - Ranger awards a Z518 powered by a 200-hp outboard to the winning pro and $5,000 to the winning co-angler in each tournament if they meet Ranger Cup guidelines.

Anglers must be registered with Ranger and meet all Ranger Cup clothing and decal requirements. The decision of Ranger Boats is final in all matters regarding Ranger Cup award eligibility. Visit the Ranger Cup page at RangerBoats.com or call 870.453.2222 for additional information.

What year is your older Ranger? My understanding is no older than 4 model years old [2008]. Also to win you must fish out of the Ranger and have all the other sticker and clothing requirements. Rick G.

What a elitist attitude Ranger has established for themselves. So because I own a older model Ranger (1994) I would not qualified for this or any other FLW Rangers event.

Next boat will be a something other than a Ranger ! Why should I spend 10K more on a boat anyway just because it has a Ranger Decal ?

Back then it made sense. Now ! Not so much. Competition listened to owners and re-tooled and way upped the quality. Look at Triton or Skeeter. Now vs then. Big Difference !
Yeah ? It's Me Again, SO WHAT!!!!!

I'm pretty positive that for the Everstart Series, you have to have no more than a 3 or 4 year old Ranger to be Ranger Cup Qualified as a Pro. As a Co-Angler I think it's a little longer. I believe 5 years or so. This may have changed recently though.

I agree with you Guy I didnt believe in paying the high price just to own a ranger either so I went with a brand new skeeter. Yes it was a great boat BUT guess how much Skeeter ponied up when I won an FLW on Shasta? Zip yep nothing so now I wish I'd bought a ranger because I would have more than doubled the money I made. If your fishing FLW trail then you would be a fool not to own a Ranger.

If it wasn't clear, the idea behind the marketing is to promote sales of new models--it's not a vintage boat show. Although that would be a great idea too--I'd love to see a tournament geared toward 60s and 70s era boats and equipment. A "Golden Age of Bass Angling" promo tournament series...

You'd have to dress the part too, just like Civil War re-enactors. Jumpsuits, patches, vests.

My feeling is in this economy we are very lucky out here to have a couple great companies like FLW and Ranger/Platinum Equity that are willing to promote fishing out here at all. Ranger as a company supports all levels of Tournament fishing from grass roots [Federation] to Team [ABA, and FPT] to Pro [FLW]. All these promo's are driven by one thing, sales at the retail level. These promo's work as in the state of California Ranger is the number 1 selling FIBERGLASS boat made today. More sales that even Bayliner, Searay and all those knucklehead wakeboard mfg's you all see crawling over the Delta. Are they expensive, ya some of them are, but they have a great model mix that fits all budgets. And all though I am not a dealer for their products, my guess is a 2012my I-class Skeeter with a CA compliant SHO 250 Yamaha is up there as well. Get the best boat you can afford that fits in your garage with a good dealer to support you and Bass-On. Rick G.

Depending on how authentic you want it to be, we'll designate steel stringers as optional equipment. :D
