When it comes to challenging weather conditions and changes in visibility either on the water or on the road, Rigid Industries LED Lighting is the name more anglers and off-roaders are demanding. One such angler is Walmart FLW Tour and BASS Bassmaster Elite Series pro Brett Hite, who won both of the season opening events in each series.
Hite started his tournament year strong by winning the FLW Tour Opener on Lake Okeechobee, FL with a 4 day total of 88 lbs 14 oz and by a margin of 6lb 6oz over 2nd place. From there, he went on to record a 6th place finish in the second FLW Tour Event of the season on Lake Hartwell, SC. Riding the wave of determination and success, Hite went on to win the Bassmaster Elite Series Opener on Lake Seminole, GA with a final weight of 97lbs 10 oz and an astounding 13 lbs over his nearest competitor.
Currently ranked #26 in the Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year point standings, Hite is 112 points behind leader Mark Davis, but to illustrate the tight points race and how only a few points separate all the contenders, he is 13 points shy of cracking the Top 20 and 51 points out of the Top 10. On the FLW Tour, Hite is #15 at 639 points, and only 120 points adrift from top ranked Cody Meyer.
Hite commented on his recent sponsorship from Rigid Industries LED Lighting. “I am so excited to become a part of Rigid Industries Marine Torture Team as Pro Staff. It is great to represent an Arizona based company like Rigid Industries, the world leader of LED Lighting and LED Technology,” Hite explained. “I look forward to working with Rigid and showing people why Rigid makes the best led light on and off the water.” Follow this link and listen to his plans: http://bit.ly/1qz0ee2.
Rigid Industries is proud to support Brett on the FLW Tour and Bassmaster Elite Series as a part of its Rigid Torture Team. Rigid Industries will join Hite’s main sponsor, Ranger Boats, and supporting sponsors Evinrude, EverGreen International, Gary Yamamoto Custom Baits, Minn-Kota, Humminbird, Sunline, The Hook-up, and Minnkota Talon.
“Brett has been a great addition to our Rigid Marine Torture Team,” says Chris Brown, Marine Category Manager. “We are excited to have him on our team. Having him as part of the Rigid Torture Team is going to be both exciting and fun to watch as all the greats do battle on the water.” Hite, who resides in Phoenix, Arizona with his family, will run a Rigid Industries LED Deck Light Kit on his 2014 Ranger boat, and Rigid Industries lights and grille on his truck.
Rigid Industries LED Lighting offers a complete line of marine grade lighting components that are corrosion resistant, even in salt water, and are assembled using marine grade stainless steel hardware to provide years of durable, reliable operation. Marine environments, especially those with salt water, can cause corrosion and, eventually, failure of the standard LED lighting products. The toughest conditions on Earth are no match for the superior lighting and long lasting performance Rigid Industries provides. Rigid is known for rugged torture tested durability, backed by a world-renowned warranty program and customer service by an American made company out of Gilbert, Arizona.
