Gambler Performance

  In conjunction with BassBoatCentral.com, we want to encourage Gambler owners to register their Gamblers with the site.  While we at Gambler are always testing new set-ups to help our customers, we believe that communication with other Gambler owners will help everyone cipher through the performance angles that we all attempt in order to get every last bit of "umph" out of our Gamblers.  We believe that this site offers an integral avenue for reaching the peak performance for all Gambler owners.  Below is a link to the Gambler owners page and we hope that you continue to enjoy your Gambler experience. 

BREAKING NEWS!!!!

Gambler is working on a trim tab device that, under testing conditions, dramatically improves hole shot.  Bob himself cannot believe what a difference they are making.  The most recent indication is that they will be available on the upcoming 2001 models.  Check back here for more information in the coming weeks.

Also, included in Gambler's most recent testing period, they have found a new prop that has performed superbly.  The new Powertech 27 pitch prop is the masterful piece of hardware.  Currently, the Powertech prop has been tested on both Gambler 2100 and Intimidator 2000.  Needless to say,  the prop passed with more than flying colors.  Check back here soon for more information.

The following are suggested setup tips for Gambler Bass Boats.  While performance is what you want it to be, it is often times a balance of holeshot and top-end performance.  Depending on what you desire the most, the suggestions below will help you to find the right setup for your Gambler.
