HomeNewsPete Ponds Joins Vicious Vision Forsyth, MO – Vicious Vision Premium Polarized Eyewear has added Pete Ponds, B.A.S.S. Elite Series Pro, to its growing list of pro staff members. Ponds, of Madison, MS, fished his first B.A.S.S. event in October of 1996. Since that time, he has competed in over 140 professional tournaments and established himself as a reliable competitor and trusted source for angling advice. Ponds has been a part of the Vicious family since the brand was introduced in 2006 and was a natural fit to work with the brand’s extension into premium polarized eyewear. Vicious Vision delivers all the attitude, quality and value expected from the brand and Pete already understands that message. “I feel very lucky to have met Dr. Jordan. He not only took the time to explain to me why these glasses are better, but as an Eye Care Professional, he was able to put me in a prescription that was right for me,” exclaimed Ponds. “It’s awesome to be fishing with a lens that I believe is going to change the game. These lenses absolutely have allowed me to see fish on beds and underwater structure I’ve never seen before. I promise you won’t believe your eyes the first time you wear them on the water.” “It has been great working with professional anglers that not only understand the need for great eyewear and the advantage that comes with it, but truly want to know why it works ,” stated Jordan. “Pete is one of those guys. He challenges thinking and has a strong desire to up his game any way he can. Once he tried our new eyewear, he was sold. In a sport decided by ounces, he truly understands the advantage he has over guys not wearing this lens!” About Vicious Vision Offering a full line of performance eyewear under the trademark of Vicious Vision, the company is owned and operated by Doug Jordan.
