This weekend is the Falcon Slam tournament, which is part of the Elite series. Chris will be competing on Falcon Lake in Zapata, Texas. He is looking forward to this competition and has written his thoughts on it for Bassmaster.com.
A good motor is essential for good bass fishing. When Chris chooses his motor, only the very best will work. If you are looking for the very best, just stop at Mercury Marine motors. Mercury Marine engineers, builds, and provides the best marine motors in the industry. They provide engines, boats, services and parts for everything from recreation to government marine applications.
Chris uses the OptiMax Pro XS 250 Horse Power engine. This engine boasts a Two-Stage Direct Injection System, by providing a constant supply of fuel and air, giving the engine exceptional throttle response and performance. Not only is the OptiMax Pro engine unparalleled in performance, but also delivers 15% better fuel economy against the competition! In addition, the OptiMax engine is comprised of stainless steel and components that resist corrosion, making it more durable in salt water and requiring maintenance at longer intervals.
To maximize the power of the engine, Chris also uses Mercury Marine’s state-of-the-art Fury propeller. This tournament bass propeller enhances the acceleration and has shown an increase in speed by 1.4 MPH.
When asked about his Mercury Marine motor and propeller, Chris says, “I have put a lot of hours on my Mercury through mud and everything else and it just keeps ticking.”
Mercury Marine is the best of the best in bass fishing motors. Their durable and groundbreaking products stand high above the competition, and Chris Lane is proud to be sponsored by such a great brand.
