Nov. 10, 2011—Minnetonka, MN—RPM Outdoor Sports, maker of the revolutionary IlumiNet landing net, has joined the Cabela’s Masters Walleye Circuit family as an associate sponsor for the 2012 tournament season.

“It’s very exciting,” said RPM’s Jerry Paller. “With its elite anglers and an incredibly helpful staff, the MWC is great platform for building our brand.”

“We’re proud to be a part of the MWC,” added RPM co-founder Larry Marohl. “The anglers are deeply competitive, yet very welcoming and the camaraderie is great. Plus, Circuit staff treats us like royalty—even though we’re not a multimillion dollar company.”

“RPM Outdoor Sports is a great fit for us,” said Cabela’s MWC Executive Director Dan Johnson. “Their rugged, quick-extending nets are going to be a hit with anglers in the tournament trenches.” For details on RPM Outdoor Sports and the amazing IlumiNet, visit http://www.rpmoutdoorsports.com/home.
