American Bass Anglers announced today that ODYSSEY Batteries will become an official sponsor of Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Weekend Series and the official battery of the American Bass Anglers. As part of the sponsorship American Bass Anglers will provide ODYSSEY an extensive on site presence at all 105 Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Weekend Series events.
"We are pleased to be sponsoring the Toyota Tundra Bassmaster Weekend Series which allows ODYSSEY to connect directly with weekend anglers," said Dave McMullen Director of Marketing for Specialty Markets. "Anglers will benefit from the advanced technology which translates to greater power and extreme performance. The life of ODYSSEY batteries is 3 times greater than conventional marine batteries. We are excited that ABA anglers will be experiencing the benefits of our Trolling Thunder Marine Dual Purpose batteries that deliver both massive starting power and amazing deep cycle capability”, concluded McMullen.
"We take great pride in aligning with the industry's best and ODYSSEY is a great example," said Morris Sheehan, President of American Bass Anglers. "With superior technology their Trolling Thunder products will deliver the power needed for starting and trolling. With 70% more cycle life anglers using ODYSSEY will have a decided advantage. The ODYSSEY warranty is a full free replacement for 3 or 4 years, not prorated like most other marine batteries. The Weekend Series crew will be stocking ODYSSEY batteries for the convenience of our participants throughout the entire BWS 2011 season" concluded Sheehan.
