Ranger Boats will unveil 2014 lineup at FLW tournament


Anglers and boaters attending the Forrest Wood Cup bass-fishing tournament this weekend in Louisiana can be among the first to see Ranger Boats' 2014 models as the boat brand brings several new designs and bass-fishing luminaries to its booth during the FLW Expo.

Working in conjunction with Bossier City, La., Ranger dealer Bayou Outdoor Supercenter, Ranger will display the Z521C and Z519C, the newest additions to the Z500C Series of tournament bass boats.

Also on display will be Ranger's new Z100C Series models and new additions to the builder’s aluminum line. The new 212LS Reata also will be unveiled.

The Ranger booth at the expo also will feature daily appearances by professional bass-fishing legends, including Ranger founder Forrest L. Wood.

Appearances and times will be displayed at the expo, allowing fans to meet icons from the Ranger Pro Staff, who will sign autographs, take pictures and share their thoughts on the 2014 lineup of Ranger boats.

The expo will be open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday during the Forrest Wood Cup, which begins today on the Red River in Shreveport, La. The expo will be inside the Shreveport Convention Center at 400 Caddo St.

Daily weigh-ins for the Forrest Wood Cup begin at 5 p.m. today inside the Century Link Center in Bossier City, La.
