Ish Monroe told BassFan today that he's signed a sponsorship agreement with lithium ion battery manufacturer Smart Battery. The deal runs through the remainder of 2012 and throughout 2013.
"I bought my first set before the FLW at Okeechobee (last February), and after fishing with them for a year, I know I never want to fish with anything else again," he said. "People might think they're a little pricey, but they're the last batteries you're ever going to buy and you won't have any issues. I fish more than anybody and I had no problems all year long."
He said the company (its website URL is www.LithiumIon-Batteries.com) is offering an "Ish Monroe Package Discount" to consumers who purchase the same four-battery setup that the runs.
