MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FLW, the world's premier tournament-fishing organization, and Z-Man Fishing Products, Inc., manufacturer of the Original ChatterBait brand bladed jig and 10X Tough ElaZtech soft plastics, have announced a sponsorship agreement. The agreement marks the fourth consecutive year of partnership for the two organizations and lasts through the 2014 season. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Z-Man is one of the fastest-growing companies in the sportfishing industry and has achieved success with innovations like the new-for-2014 QuadZilla four-arm spinnerbait. Of late, Z-Man has offered high-quality plastics in its ElaZtech line. Z-Man's ElaZtech material is the toughest soft plastic on the market – resisting nicks, cuts, and tears, yet is still pliable and naturally buoyant. New 2014 products utilizing ElaZtech include the DieZel MinnowZ, Turbo CrawZ and Scented LeechZ. Z-Man's most proven producer is the ChatterBait, which has become a mainstay among serious tournament anglers like Luke Clausen, and now can be found in most anglers' tackle boxes.
Z-Man will receive exposure across all of FLW's platforms, including its tournaments and Expos, multiple websites, social media and FLW Bass Fishing magazine.
FLW is the industry's premier tournament-fishing organization, providing anglers of all skill levels the opportunity to compete for millions in prize money nationwide in 2014 over the course of 229 tournaments across five tournament circuits, four of which provide an avenue to the sport's richest payday and most coveted championship trophy – the Forrest Wood Cup.
