I think this is a solid move because Ranger high-end quality is lacking on the FS series.

should be interesting..the name is a bit odd but hope they come out with some Deep Vs and not at the 70k price point.

All explained in the release.

Seems like a number of these folks were Ranger employees. Actual launch is about 100 days, there's a counter on the website.

The name is curious. Typically, we do not wish to be "vexed". But then boats can be very frustrating, so maybe it is perfect.

All I want is a big single console that fits 9' rods.

It would be interesting to have 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 rigs sitting side-by-each, so a person could compare them. I wonder if the quality has changed since that model came out in 2015?

Yeah, maybe it was partially due to the redesign in 2015, but the entire FS series has the easily scratched and cheap feel with an abundance of plastic surrounding the helm. I understand why they went to the flat gunnels for track systems, but they didn't have to make those 90 degree sharp edged corners, especially on inside where they're not as comfortable to lean against and easily chipped. I'm not making this into a gripe session, because I still think Ranger makes a good product, it's just not as good as it used to be IMHO.

Haha, 70k I think you're dreaming Brad...

"From original design and engineering to hand-building total performance machines of exceptional quality, we're looking forward to sharing a full line of products that complement the confidence and expectations of today's anglers." Reinforcing that statement, the company confirmed that each model will include a broad array of customizable choices related to outboards, electronics, and other features.

The 2100 takes several 9 footers. New website on the way this Winter.

Snip...


I will have to ask the Ranger people here in town if there have been any alterations to the 2018 units. The dealer meeting is next week, I think? Maybe there have been some improvements to address some of the things you mentioned Jerry.

Or white river/Johnny Morris, vexed them aka vex us!? We will show you. There are several comments about the name by the owners and more or less they are saying that is for a later time
