Solar Bat extends support of Professional Anglers Association

paaBenton, KY, February 3, 2010 – Solar Bat sunglasses, makers of the ultimate outdoor optics, is continuing its support of the PAA through the 2010 PAA Bass Pro Shops Tournament Series.

Solar Bat has been supporting professional anglers since 1994 and has a very impressive prostaff including several PAA members. Team Solar Bat has a string of accomplishments including six Bassmasters Classic titles, six Angler of the Year honors and countless wins. Several of these talented team members will be fishing the PAA tournaments in 2010 and promoting the benefits of Solar Bat Sunglasses.

As a pioneer in fishing-specific glasses, Solar Bat continues to give competitive anglers everywhere an edge. Their new patent-pending Gradient Tint process elevates fishing optics even further, with lenses created specifically for changing conditions. PAA members will see the benefits of this unique feature throughout the 2010 Tournament Series. Gradient Tint is just one of many enhancements to the product line, consisting of 17 different frame styles, multiple lens options, fishing-specific goggles, the Bat Mask, as well as optics for shooting and hunting.

Solar Bat also offers 10 different styles suitable for prescriptions, including both distance and bifocal. In addition to its evolving lineup, the company has continued to enhance quality over the years. Starting in 2010, all polarized lenses will be created with enhanced molding processes based in the USA, for even crisper vision.

Enhancements and expansions are part of the growth process for Solar Bat, which also recently gave the brand some updates. Those familiar with the company will recognize an updated logo and a fresh website.

According to Dr. Gary Nesty, founder of Solar Bat, “We are excited to support the PAA as we continue to grow together. Exposing our products to members and fans of the PAA in conjunction with the Bass Pro Shops Tournament Series is an excellent opportunity. Our company and prostaff will be able to showcase our products in conjunction with exciting events, at one of the nation’s leading retailers.”
