Well, I don’t know if you’ve had this experience yet, but if you get out and about in the fishing world these days, you will see a new motor in town, and it is amazing! It’s the Evinrude E TEC G2. I just got mine rigged out on my Ranger 520C, and all I can say is wow!
First of all you can get it in a large variety of colors. Personally I prefer black with silver accents. The hole shot on this boat is amazing. It is undoubtedly the most responsive motor I’ve ever used. You may be thinking they put all of their energy into the hole shot and that there would be nothing left for the top end, but my Ranger is running in the mid-70s no problem.
The other thing I’ve noticed is that it is extremely economical. I’m burning only a fraction of the gas I burned last year. I haven’t had it long, but from everything I have seen so far, I can tell it’s going to be the best motor I’ve ever owned!
