Rigid Industries LogoHigh speeds, tricky weather conditions and early morning risers demand the best LED lighting on the water as well as on the road and their choice has become very clear. Rigid Industries is proud to welcome FLW Tour Pro’s Adrian Avena and Stetson Blaylock and BASS Elite Series Angler Kevin Short to the Rigid Torture Team. Rigid Industries will be Adrian’s Title Sponsor for the 2014 Season on the FLW Tour beginning next week at Lake Okeechobee in Florida.

“We are very excited to welcome Adrian as part of our Rigid Marine Torture Team” says Marine Category Manager, Chris Brown. “Having Adrian flying the Rigid flag on the FLW tour this year is really exciting. He has a bright future ahead of him and we are excited to have him on our team.” Adrian will run a Rigid Industries LED logo’d wrap on his Ford F250 and 2014 Basscat Eyra. Both the truck and boat will feature Rigid Industries lighting front to back including the new Brandon Palaniuk Signature Series Boat Deck Light Kit and new Minn Kota Trolling Motor Mount Light Kit.

Avena has already garnered an impressive record of two wins and 8 top tens in his young career. “For the past five years, bass fishing has become my passion, says Adrian, “Although I am a relatively young fisherman, I have developed the skills and techniques to compete with the best in bass fishing. While fishing these events, I have learned the hard work and commitment it takes to succeed in this sport.”

In addition to Avena, Rigid is also excited to welcome Stetson Blaylock, FLW Tour Pro, and BASS Elite Series veteran Kevin Short to the Rigid Marine Torture Team. Stetson will join Adrian in featuring Rigid lights on his Toyota Tundra and his Ranger Boat on the FLW Tour and the BASS Northern Opens this year. Kevin “K-Pink” Short will feature rigid lighting on his Chevrolet and GMC tow vehicles, Camper and his 2014 BassCat Boat on the BASS Elite Series and BASS Central Opens this year.

“The addition of Stetson Blaylock on the FLW side and Kevin Short on the BASS side is really pretty awesome,” says Brown. “Both Stetson and Kevin reside in Arkansas, a state full of bass fishing history and one that has produced many FLW and BASS Elite Series Pros to date. Having them as part of the Rigid Torture Team is going to be both exciting and fun to watch as they do battle on the water in 2014.”
