Pittsgrove, NJ, February 28, 2018. Professional Edge Fishing, Inc., a brand and angler representation company based in New Jersey, announces new licensing agreement for its accomplished Elite Pro Angler, John Crews.
Crews has partnered with FGX International® for the manufacturing and distribution of the John Crews Signature Line of polarized sunglasses for adults and kids.
"The opportunity to have a signature line of sunglasses with this kind of quality and affordable price is amazing. Most every angler wants quality eye wear at a price that does not cause heartburn. The best part is that the line has plenty of very modern styles to protect your eyes and look good at the same time."
Bob Grow, Executive Vice President of Global Product Development at FGX International explains, “The lenses across the entire collection reduce glare, making them the perfect choice for fishing and water sports. The lenses on the adult styles feature a hydrophobic coating that repels dirt, water and oil for easier cleaning. All John Crews styles provide 100% UVA and UVB protection.” The entire collection of high performance sunglasses will be available for the avid and the average angler in sports chains in March 2018.
Becky Iaconelli, President of Professional Edge Fishing, Inc. is pleased with the new arrangement, “Partnering with a sunglass manufacturer is just a natural fit for our guys. Eye protection, especially polarized lenses on the water, is a critical piece of gear for anglers of all ages. FGX International has a longstanding reputation for exceptional quality and the John Crews Signature Line is a really good-looking line of glasses.”
Crews is an eleven-time Classic qualifier and a Bassmaster Elite Series Champion. In addition to being a pro angler, John Crews is President of Missile Baits, makers of soft plastics, jigs and a line of signature apparel. The addition of the FGX John Crews' Sunglass Line expands his list of sponsors that includes General Tire, SPRO Corp., Bass Cat Boats, Mercury, Cashion Fishing Rods, Sunline, Lithium Pros, Raymarine, Gamakatsu, Power-Pole, T-H Marine and Hamby’s.Visit John Cews B.A.S.S.
