I just went to the Nitro website and it looks like for 2016 the Z7, Z8, and Z9 are no longer being produced and will be replaced by the Z20 and Z21 with limited availability on the Z6...interesting..... I guess there won't be a 18 foot boat compatible to the Z7.......

Z18 will be the comparable model to Z7.

The Allison owner/manager had been spreading rumors the Nitro would take the Ranger consoles and showed a picture, but they don't look the same to me.

Go walk around that z21 then go look at a Ranger z521c. It'll take a few minutes for to to even think about comparing them. They are 110% different boats. Only similarity is the motors on the back and some common shared parts/accessories. Ranger is still Ranger.

The Nitro had been under development well before they buyout of ranger. there were some early pictures of the Z21 LONG before the buyout on BBC. They should still be up in anyone wants to do a search.

Sounds like that Allison guy had no clue about what he was talking about. Reminds me of a boat salesman that sold brand X then started selling brand Y. He now trashed brand X but funny he was not trashing them when he was selling them. Just the opposite... roflmao

I like these new Nitros but I wonder if they are still going to be tight lipped about how they are constructed? They love to tell you how they build a trailer though..........

They are still doing the low ball price thing too. I guess they'll never give that up. That being said; it would be funny to see someone take one of these rigs equipped at their base level and nothing more, and go out and win a major. I promise you there are folks out there that could pull it off............

It's still going to take time for them to get past being a Nitro. My BIL is a Nitro owner and when he bought it I was impressed with it. But every year I visited him more and more has gone wrong with it.

Look up Steve Kennedy and how many BFL/regional level tournaments he won out of a 40hp Bass Tracker and then a junky 90 hp 18 ft Ranger he bought for $1500 (so he could get priority FLW entry). He still fishes the elites out of a base level Z-8 that he won. No power poles, 5 inch graph. I know when he started competing out of it he had no graph on the bow, and then I saw a pic of him with a graph laying in the deck that I guess he could move around.

Yeah they dont have videos. But u can tour the plant anytime u want. I have.

Heck I fished out of a ranger z520 with a 225 this weekend. Fished out of alot of rangers. When u get down to it, what does it do differently. To me its just a status symbol that someone spent more then others. They are both great boats.

I thought Kennedy runs a ranger.
