The series was made possible in part by Seaguar, with their involvement as Title Sponsor of the series. "I couldn't be more excited to have Seaguar involved as the Title Sponsor of the series" says Jim Sammons, "I've been a dedicated Seaguar fluorocarbon user for as long as I can remember, and now that they've released a world class braid and mono, Seaguar has everything that I both want and need."

Stay tuned for more information and for specific show times.
