CIg's are great boats without a doubt. However, it's time to either go racing, or give up the World Champion moniker. Let someone who has a title recently use it..

Nobody in any sport gives up that fact that they were a World Champion.

I think after The East side poker run where NONE of these big new "Offshore"
boats would run....That they have ALL lost there way !! 4-6s with some holes
{turned into 8s at the bar}......I give up....Cats are the way to go...smooth water speed is all that maters anymore....

Except for the 235 Force that ran it !!!!!!!!!!!!

That patch says it all... the priorities of the brand used to be performance. Now it is name recognition and overpriced cotton.

1st off my opinion being owned a cig for the first time in my life. while I would owned other brand like OL or Fountain , hustler or Sprectra. they would be my 2nd boat I will always own a Cig.
everyone in our area now knows where we live because of Rampage, I let my brother take it out he felt like a celebrity. that is what Cigarette does. Do they need to prove top speed with out a doubt they could in any condition. but they don't have to.
To Reggie awesome job and glad to see that he has such a love for the sport. I am glad that he kick a** fountain are great boats. OL what can you say yeah they are sweet boats but with a price tag that makes them think they are tops. My only hopes is that Reggie had more throttle because with 1 engine down they now know what they need to beat. Bring it ON.

Too Old , while you are admired here by me any so many others, I would not think that you would put down such a legend. every boat has it own shine on different waters.Cigarette holds its own on flat and shines in the rough.

And cig is working on improving itself. Look at the new 39. Not a huge jump but it is different from their norm.

Fountain wants to be the fastest. Cig doesn't need to prove it's the best....it just is....it's an industry standard.
that is very wrong, fountains top speeds come in choppy water due to less resistance, fountains are made for cruising through waves at high speeds just as much as cigarette if not more, that would be why all the offshore racers are almost all fountain, NO CIGARETTES, so get it right buddy
