The choice of an outboard engine is extremely important to every tournament angler. Here’s how I made my choice: During my 33 years in this sport I have been involved with all the major manufacturers and their service crews along with knowing the record of mechanical issues at FLW tournaments. All the brands are pretty impressive; the improvements in performance and dependability over the last few years are nothing short of astounding. I gotta tell you, I love the concept of the four stroke outboards. I love the fact that they are quiet and fuel efficient, but they also have some shortcomings…one brand is really heavy, causing performance problems, the other brand is lighter but making it lighter causes dependability problems. The biggest issue I have with all the four strokes is maintenance; after 100 hours they have to be taken to the dealer for an oil change (time consuming and expensive). So, that leaves us with two strokes, most of which are not fuel efficient nor have clean emissions.
One two stroke stands head and shoulders above the rest…the all new EVINRUDE E-TEC G2. My Evinrude G2 is quiet, fuel efficient, light weight, clean, dependable and goes 500 hours before any scheduled maintenance. An Evinrude G2 is ready to go out of the box, no break-in period is required. It starts with the push of a button and no other outboard has such quick throttle response.

Oh, I other item I almost forgot to mention…the new Evinrude ETEC G2 is absolutely the best looking outboard on the market and you can design your engine color to match your Ranger!
