BASSMASTER CLASSIC TO FEATURE 12 RANGER PROS

JARED LINTNER, MATT LEE AND JORDAN LEE JOIN RANGER FOR 2018 CLASSIC AND BEYOND

FLIPPIN, Ark. (March 1, 2018) - Legendary boat brand Ranger Boats will be represented by 12 of the world’s top professional bass anglers when the 2018 Bassmaster Classic is contested on South Carolina’s Lake Hartwell on March 16-18. The group of Ranger pro anglers includes two former Classic Champions and three anglers who finished in the top-10 Elite Series Angler of the Year standings in 2017.

Ranger also welcomes defending Classic winner Jordan Lee, Matt Lee and Jared Lintner to its pro staff. The three anglers have enjoyed years of success on the Elite Series and will represent Ranger Boats during the coming 2018 tournament season.

The Bassmaster Classic draws thousands each year to watch the live weigh ins as well as to attend the Bassmaster Classic Outdoors Expo, which runs concurrently with the tournament. The Expo gives Ranger fans a chance to see the brand’s latest models, including the Ranger Z521L ICON, which commemorates Ranger Boats’ 50th anniversary.

Boat buyers attending the 2018 Bassmaster Classic Outdoor Expo will be eligible for numerous sales incentives, giving them the opportunity to make their dream rig a reality. With limited-time-only offers geared for both fiberglass and aluminum customers, qualifying purchases will receive benefits up to $3,000 in combined retail value for eligible models.

Visitors to the Ranger booth will also have the opportunity to meet and gain professional insight from some of the sport’s greatest professional bass anglers. With appearances by Hank Parker, Jimmy Houston, Denny Brauer and many others, the Ranger booth is expected to be a hub for bass fishing fans throughout the expo.
