X2Power, the premium power source for the marine, car/light truck and motorsports markets, announces its bass pro staff for 2021. The pro staff, comprised of accomplished anglers with multiple championships and other accolades to their credit, is designed to highlight the competitive advantage enjoyed by anglers who run X2Power marine batteries in their tournament boats.

The 2021 X2Power bass pro staff includes anglers from MLF and the Bassmaster Elite Series, including former champions and major award winners. A truly international group, the pro staff is comprised of anglers from the United States, Canada and Australia who will run their tournament boats and tow vehicles with X2Power throughout the 2021 tournament season.

“Professional bass anglers demand a lot of their equipment, and X2Power marine batteries are built to provide the most worry-free solution for anglers who rely on modern electronics on their boat. What better place than the world’s highest levels of professional bass fishing to prove the performance and value of a premium battery like X2Power,” said Vice President of Product Development Shawn Budiac “We’re proud to be aligned with such accomplished anglers and we look forward to cheering on their successes in 2021 and beyond.”

Proudly made in the USA, X2Power Marine batteries are part of a line of premium power options that includes AGM batteries for cars/light trucks and emergency vehicles, as well as lithium batteries for powersports applications. X2Power marine batteries feature a pure-lead, dual-purpose design, which gives them both the high cranking power to start modern boat motors as well as the cycling capabilities necessary to run trolling motors, depth finders, side-imaging, radios, radar, lights, pumps, coolers and more. Backed by a 4-year, free-replacement warranty and available at more than 700 Batteries Plus Bulbs locations nationwide, X2Power’s AGM batteries are built to provide years of worry-free use for anglers and boaters.
