Falcon Boats announced that 2017 FLW Cup winner Justin Atkins will run the company's F205 on the MLF Bass Pro Tour this year.
“After being around my now teammate Patrick Walters and his Falcon F205, I was very impressed with the product; the deck space and storage alone was the best I had ever seen,” said Atkins. "I made a trip to the factory last fall and took a ride in all the models they offer and was immediately sold.”
However, it wasn’t just about the product for Atkins, the people factored into his decision. “Stephen and Lisa Waller, and Tim DePriest welcomed me in like family, it's really awesome to see the owners putting their hands on every product that leaves the factory,” he said. “I love the family feel and the attention to detail that goes into every boat, and I'm excited to be representing Falcon for many years to come.”
Said Falcon president Stephen Waller: “We were definitely impressed with how he handled himself on stage in Columbia when he won the Cup. We look forward to partnering with him as he embarks on his new journey with Major League Fishing, and into the future.”
Atkins joins a team that includes fellow BPT angler and Forrest Wood Cup champion Anthony Gagliardi, FLW Tour pros Tim Frederick, Brian Latimer and John Hunter Jr., and Bassmaster Elite Series pros Patrick Walters, Brett Preuett and Rick Morris.
