Bassmaster Elite Series angler Greg Vinson announced that he'll run a Phoenix boat in 2014. The 6th-year pro from Alabama had formerly been with Skeeter.
"When I decided to change boats it was with the idea that I would fish out of the best,” he said. “As a professional angler, you hear a lot from other anglers and from your fans
about the quality of certain products.
“One of the biggest reasons I contacted Phoenix was because all I ever heard about their boats was positive, on and off the record. And I can tell you that after running one on Toho during the first Southern Open about a week ago, I’m confident that I made the right decision. My boat was fast and it handled the rough water without a hitch, and it was designed and built by fishermen, so everything is well-built and is in the right place.”
Said Phoenix president Gary Clouse: “We’re pleased to have an angler with Greg’s work ethic, morals and professional skills in one of our boats. We build first-class boats and we’re proud when first-class anglers fish out of them. We consider it a privilege to have Greg on board."
