Troy, N.Y. — Rapsody Fishing LLC, a manufacturer of tournament quality fishing rods, is pleased to announce that Bassmaster Elite Series pro Byron "BJ" Haseotes will be fishing with Rapsody rods in the 2011 season.
Bob Penicka, president and founder of Rapsody, states that "We are very happy to extend our relationship with Byron "BJ" Haseotes. He is an excellent fisherman, and an even better person." When BJ is not fishing tournaments, he will contribute to Rapsody's rod design initiatives. "This is a great relationship for both parties," states BJ. "I love my Rapsody rods, and I really enjoy my role in developing new rod designs.
These guys think outside of the box, and they really welcome input from the pros." BJ is planning to fish the Elites in 2011 and he is currently weighing in on some design details for a new rod line that Rapsody will introduce this spring. "I had the pleasure to fish these rods on the Elites last year, and was very pleased with them. There is no better proving ground than the Elite Series and my Rapsody Rods passed the test. They are durable, yet extremely light weight, and have the best action of any rod I have held in my hands"
The Rapsody Maestro® Bass Series and Overture Series have been received enthusiastically by tournament fishermen.
The Artist Series, featuring technique specific bass rods, will be introduced in 2011. Rapsody manufactures their rods and sells them factory direct.
