The Bass University is Proud to Announce a Partnership with HullSpeed

October 9, 2013 - HullSpeed® Performance Marine Coatings has joined The Bass University team for 2014 and 2015. One of the primary objectives of The Bass University is to expose anglers to the most cutting edge techniques, tips, and products available. HullSpeed's advanced hull coating technology is a perfect fit for The Bass University program.

"I'm super excited that HullSpeed will be joining The Bass University as an official sponsor!" says Mike Iaconelli, co-founder of The Bass University. "HullSpeed has become a key piece of equipment on my bass boat over the last few years and has so many benefits to every angler who owns a boat. For me, some of the best benefits include: better top end speed, better hole shot, ease of handling, longer trolling motor life, and keeping the boat bottom protected and clean. HullSpeed is going to become standard equipment for anglers who want to get better performance, durability, and gain a competitive advantage over the competition."

"HullSpeed® coatings is proud to partner with The Bass University" says Ian Germain, HullSpeed's Marketing Manager. "The learning setting that Bass University provides is unrivaled and is a great way to stay up to date with new industry products, trends and tactics."
