Re: 2018 Tournament Sponsors

A huge thanks to Mako Spearguns for sponsoring the 2018 Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge. Mako Spearguns was founded on a unique concept of being more than just a manufacturer and supplier of high quality spearguns and gear, and achieved their goal by focusing their attention on the spearfishing community instead of on the business of selling gear. So if you're looking for some quality gear and superior customer service, look no further than Mako Spearguns.

Re: 2018 Tournament Sponsors

Back again to support the 2018 Tampa Bay Spearfishing Challenge and the lionfish eradication effort, we'd like to welcome back Zookeeper LCU to the tournament!! The Zookeeper is a device that makes it safer to harvest lionfish and has been a huge help for divers who were unable to adequately hunt lionfish in larger quantities with traditional spearfishing gear. So be sure to get registered for the tournament for a chance to take home a Zookeeper for yourself!

Re: 2018 Tournament Sponsors

We would like to welcome back Salt Life Optics as a returning Platinum Sponsor. Salt Life Optics is a company with salt in their veins and a serious passion for the ocean, and for this year's tournament they provided a variety of their high-end sunglasses for the prize table. Manufactured in Italy with Swiss materials, their Zeiss lenses have an anti-reflective coating that eliminates glare and repels water. This allows colors to appear vibrant and natural with extreme clarity and zero distortion. Their lenses are also polarized and offer 100% UV protection from harmful rays while out on the boat spearfishing!
