T-H Marine Sponsors PAA Corporate Cup presented by OPTIMA® BatteriesRevolutionary “ATLAS” named Official Jack Plate of the Event Benton, Ky. – As word of the PAA Corporate Cup presented by OPTIMA® Batteries continues to create buzz throughout the fishing industry, the list of partners and participants continues to grow, and T-H Marine of Huntsville, Ala. has joined that list. The PAA has named Atlas as the “Official jack plate of the PAA Corporate Cup presented by OPTIMA® Batteries.” Already a leading manufacturer of many industry standard performance and safety products in the fishing and boating industry; T-H Marine recently introduced their new Atlas hydraulic jack plate, a product that will undoubtedly redefine the jack plate product category as it is known. In ATLAS, T-H Marine has solved many of the problems associated with use of hydraulic jack plates. ATLAS’ pump is incorporated into the plate, which reduces not only the need for valuable space in the rigging storage area of an angler’s boat, but it also speeds up installation because ATLAS is self contained. Thanks to ATLAS’ high tech rod and slot lifting design, the need for messy lubricants has been eliminated, as the rods are constructed of a space age polymer material that is self lubricating. The design also creates a very fast jack plate that is capable of lifting the heaviest four stroke outboards in eight seconds. Stacey King, PAA Board Member said that ATLAS lives up to the claims, “I am extremely pleased with it, the travel up and down is fast and quiet and it has been otherwise flawless; It’s an excellent Jackplate!” Elite Series pro and PAA Board Member, John Crews said that T-H Marine’s products have always been a part of his rigging, and ATLAS’ innovation is indicative of the company’s reputation. “T-H Marine products like the Hot Foot have been in my boats for many years,” Crews reported. “The new ATLAS jack plate should also become standard equipment for professional anglers.” Chad Morgenthaler, Vice President of the PAA, himself an FLW Tour pro said that the fact that T-H Marine understands the needs and desires of anglers makes the relationship a perfect match. “After speaking with Bill and Jeff Huntley, the family management team of T-H Marine and manufacturers of the great products I have used for years, I realized that they share the same passion for the sport of fishing as I do,” Morgenthaler said. “They understand the needs of our members, and that makes T-H Marine a leader in the industry, as well as a tremendous partner to the PAA.” PAA President and Elite Series Pro Tim Horton also recognizes the reputation of T-H Marine and welcomes them to the Corporate Cup team. “Professional and weekend anglers alike have been using T-H Marine products for years with confidence in their quality and performance,” Horton exclaimed. “We are excited to have T-H marine as a partner in the PAA Corporate Cup presented by OPTIMA® Batteries.” Jeff Huntley, President of T-H Marine is also pleased with the partnership. “We are excited about our partnership with the Professional Anglers Association and proud that our market leading ATLAS jack plate has been named their official jack plate,” Huntley said. “T-H Marine has always been proud of our support for bass fishing, fish conservation, and the hard working anglers of our sport. We know that the PAA shares those values and is working hard to grow the sport of professional bass fishing and support those who are making their livelihood from it.” T-H Marine Supplies, Inc. has been serving the marine industry since 1975.
