Certainly no surprise.
Eliminate your competition, your margins increase.

Just got off it. Here's where I was looking. Click ANGLERS, Click ELITES, Click on each individual angler to view sponsors.

I used to sell Legends in Temple. Randy is a great guy. He must'a got an offer he just couldn't refuse.

happening.

From what I can gather legend will produce the V20 though the end of 2019 and if sale #'s don't go up they're gone. There were 7 elite pro's running them last year, they are all in Ranger, Triton or Nitro this year. Either this is all planned to eliminate Legend or their head of marketing is an idiot, thats is not how you create confidence the brand will be around for a long time and fill more orders for the brand in the future.

There was a post a few weeks ago from someone that knows the man in charge and supposedly Legend is not gone, but they are re-modeling the facility. I don’t really know or care though if it’s true, no dealerships around here anyways.

Just heard the news seems they have been drug out into the street and shot, no 2019 production, at least not from basspro as I had heard before. I can only imagine 2018 sales #'s were way down with all the rumors.

Company acquisitions are always interesting and seldom beneficial to the consumer. The quality can go either way and it's usually in favor of the buyer looking to eliminate competition or merely to lower production costs at the expense of quality.
I'm still waiting to see the end result of the Sea Ark/Correct Craft merger. My dealer claims there is no change, but the marriage is still young. Just glad I bought mine when I did.

Another one that will be interesting to watch is the acquisition of Ranger by Tracker, but that will be another story for another thread.

You do realize that this acquisition happened almost 4 years ago? ?
