Hammer Rods Joins Fishing University
Announcement was made today of the Outdoor Channels’ Fishing University’s newest sponsor, Hammer Rods. “We are very excited to introduce our viewers to these great rods that are taking the fishing market by storm”, stated Debra Talley, Vice President of Program Development. “We are always seeking out new sponsors that will enhance our anglers’ abilities to enjoy their sport with the confidence in knowing they have the best products available on the market and those companies support them as well”, continued Talley.
“Hammer Fishing Rods is excited to join forces with Charlie Ingram and Ray Brazier as rod sponsor of Fishing University”, said Shane Cox, owner of Hammer Fishing Rods. “It is a great opportunity for Hammer to reach our core consumer, active individuals who share in our love of the great outdoors. In partnering with Fishing University, we are also able to emphasize our strong desire to educate our youth on the fundamentals needed to assure a bright future within our sport. Both Charlie and Ray share in this same vision which proves to be an excellent relationship between our two organizations”, he concluded.
At Hammer Fishing Rods there is no mass production. Rods are built one rod at a time. Blanks are 100% graphite, hand rolled, and flex-tested before being assembled. Quality continues with the finest components; Fuji micro guides, Fuji graphite blank-exposed reel seat, and Winn split grip handle. One aspect of the rod building process that stands Hammer apart is that each rod is hand-wrapped in the homes of women who vary from stay-at-home moms, moms of special needs children or women that offer in-home care to elderly adults in an effort to earn extra income for their family. Hammer Fishing Rods proudly offers an excellent American Made product to the fishing industry at an affordable price.
“Adding Hammer Fishing Rods to our line-up, makes a great addition to our outstanding family of sponsors”, said Ray Brazier and Charlie Ingram, co-hosts of Fishing University.”When using a Hammer Rod, I have high expectations of catching a great bass. Because of the advanced materials, dynamic design and the warranty of a superior product, they set the basis of a better and more complete fishing experience. As in anything, the old adage, you get what you pay for, when buying Hammer Rods, you can be assured they offer the action and sensitivity for every fishing scenario”, concluded Brazier.”
Fishing University is sponsored by Legend Boats, Honda Marine, the State of Tennessee, Jackson Kayak, Power Tech, Spro, Tuf-Line, and Buckeye Lures.
About Fishing University
As one of the oldest Outdoor TV shows, Fishing University is celebrating 26 years of bringing quality fishing programming to avid viewers. Each week they hit the water accompanied by friends and professionals in the industry, as viewers are engaged in a competitive show that is packed full of ‘how to tips’. Not only is the show exciting, but it also lets people in on tricks of the trade from some of the very best. To add another dynamic to the situation, each boat is given a tackle box filled with identical tackle. This eliminates any tricks that one may have up their sleeves and forces them to rely on pure talent, and maybe a little luck. Fishing University can be seen on the Outdoor Channel three times a week. To see the entire schedule go to www.fishingu.com.
