Default Lund vs Ranger

I purchased my first Ranger and first glass boat last year and doubt I will ever go back to aluminum. Lund also has some great glass options....

I love my 1860 and 175 ProXS! All my buddies that have never been in glass before were nothing but impressed with the smooth, dry ride as well as the faster speeds it can handle in rough water.

I have owned 2 tin boats and one glass. My choice would be glass every time. That being said if tin is what you like then get the Lund, they make a very good product. Everyone is going to have their own personal opinion, but at the end of the day it's your money and you will be the one fishing out of it so by all means get what YOU want.

Climb into both and compare the storage.
Compare the ergonomics best suited to your style of fishing.

If you are doing your own rigging on electronics, take some time to talk about that with the service manager, or a rigger. Having been in on a lot of rigging, I found aluminum Lunds (especially Pro Vs) very easy to rig.

Personally, I really like Verados so, I'd check and see how the prices compare if each had a Verado,,,?

Try to enjoy the experience. Buying a boat is supposed to be fun.
Just remember, you get what you pay for with opinions on the internet

Personally I think a glass boat is a better boat, but I won't have another one. TOO much work to keep them clean and looking good. If Ya like spending a few hours after a fishing trip cleaning it up, go for the glass.
