"Lowrance continues to set the bar on easy to use and effective equipment for anglers. In the 17 years that we have been running tournaments, we have seen some remarkable changes in regards to electronics and how our anglers use them for catching more fish. The HDS-GEN3 line of Lowrance is more advanced than anything thats ever been available. To be working with the leader of the pack, Lowrance, we are excited to see what our anglers bring in. Now that there is $5,000 in bonus money available for Lowrance Gen3 products, our anglers can have the best technology and win significant bonus cash." Chad Potts, President of Bass Champs.
