    Any owner feedback on the VX boats

    It is my understanding that Vexus is starting to deliver some VX fiberglass boats. I would appreciate any feedback from new owners on ride, quality boat and trailer, fishing stability and owner satisfaction. Iím seriously considering a VX. Thank you

    John, the company I work for purchased the AVX1980 back in March and although you are looking for the Fiberglass version, I wouldn't do it. I have personally owned the Ranger Z118 and the company had the Z521 and not only is the boat much better (although apples to oranges with Fiberglass to Aluminum) but first and foremost the customer service was light years better than Vexus. I have been trying to track Ryan Patterson down for months. He would answer an email, tell me he would get right back to me, then nothing for weeks. Then I would reach back out, a couple days he follows with, "expect a call from me tomorrow". This started in April after we purchased the boat in March and I am still trying to get a resolution over something that should be very easy. That doesn't even begin to touch the mediocre build quality and cheap parts all over this thing. The tandem axel trailer is nice though. I just can't reccommend buying one of their boats.

    Who have you escalated the issue too? Have you reached out to Keith D etc? Or is it easier to just randomly show up here to talk about Vexus. Seems odd. Haven't posted for a year and yet here you are talking about a boat that the business you are employed by owns. And Vexus isn't calling you back about their boat.
    I can say I have had my minor issues, however Vexus has always been super responsive and resolved all my issues. I would not hesitate to buy a Vexus again. They are FAR from cheaply made. You are on an island there.

    Ranger Danger. Troll Alert!!!

    So let me get this right, the OP asked about the glass Vexus and you respond with how great Ranger CS is and how Ryan won't call you back about a tin boat. Reading this, I understand why. Are you friends with TimmySeahawks?? I have done extensive research on these boats before ordering mine and while they are prone to issues, just like every boat line out there, they are not cheap. Cheap is how Tracker builds their boats and these boats are light years ahead of them. Seems really troll like well not seems but rather IS, but then I have noticed this happens a lot on this page. Tell the owner of the boat to reach out to Keith Daffron as referenced above the issues with the boat. If even their is a tin Vexus. The fact is, just like Ranger which I am coming out of, these boats are top notch and not even close to being mediocre.

    I've been waiting 20 years to get my first and last bass boat, was ready to buy a couple of months ago but liked what I saw in the VX line and decided to wait a few months for the reviews to come in, I waited this long a few more months can't hurt.

    Really? The post was so far off base that it was laughable. Ignorance is bliss I guess sometimes.

    SCLARK - I noticed on other forums the mods tattle to Big Al and they boot anyone who spoke poorly of the sacred JM product(aka pot stirrers).......always an option with the Ranger fan boys on the Vexus page. RIP BigFrank, we miss you.

    2nd Ranger BN, 75th Ranger Reg is the only true Ranger brotherhood. Hooah!! The tab is worn for life!

    Well......the OP did ask about owner satisfaction. Obviously not an owner who was satisfied with the customer service they received.

    Not sure why they needed to take it to that level right out of the gate unless they didn't receive decent support from the dealer.

    The OP asked specifically about VX feedback. He isn't an owner. The company he works for is the owner. Obvious troll. I am confident it wasn't escalated if he there is a 1980.

    okay boys enough..
    lets stop attacking NativeJax, lets chalk it up to a miscommunication by both sides and call it good.
    it does no good to belittle a person for his opinion.
    thanks

    I waited on VX for over a year. The boat is built right. I want to see how the paint holds up, and there were 2 finishing touches that held me up. I think you will be happily surprised with the storage and ride

    Will the fiberglass boats be 2020 models?
    The mediocre are always at their best.
