MURFREESBORO, TN (November 25, 2008) Following the enormous success of Stratos Boats’ 2X “Double Your Winnings” contingency program in 2008, the company recently announced the renewal of the program for the 2009 calendar year. The 2X program, designed to fuel anglers’ passion for fishing by doubling payouts for on-the-water success, has been strongly applauded by anglers across the country since its launch in April 2008.

Originally designed as a program to reward Stratos owners competing in bass tournaments, the 2009 2X “Double Your Winnings” contingency program will expand beyond those competitions and now also offer the same opportunities for increased tournament winnings for Stratos owners participating in walleye events.

Moving forward, the program’s guidelines remain unchanged: the program will run for the entire 2009 calendar year and will double tournament winnings from any qualified tournament up to $10,000 for registered Stratos anglers fishing out of a qualifying Stratos boat. The program is available to owners of 2007-2009 model Stratos boats through June 30, 2009. Beginning with the new model year for Stratos on July 1, 2009, eligible Stratos boats will be 2008-2010 models. The 2X “Double Your Winnings” program makes no restrictions on individual model choice or motor pairings. With an ever-expanding list of qualified tournaments that already includes more than 274 events in 31 states and two Canadian provinces, this program allows Stratos owners to make even more money for tournament wins while being able to compete close to home.

There is no signup or membership dues to pay with the Stratos Boats 2X Double Your Winnings program, just fill out an affidavit within 30 days after a first-place win in a qualified tournament to double your money, no matter how many qualified tournaments you win in a year.
