Elite Rod Sleeves announced an agreement with FLW Tour pro Todd Hollowell this week.

Owner Dan Bowman is honored to announce their signing of Hollowell. “Todd is a real class act so to say that we are excited about this partnership is an understatement,” said Bowman. “Todd will be performing at the highest level for many years to come and to have him representing and working with us on his ideas is the perfect fit for the company.”

Hollowell, who will fish the Walmart FLW Tour and Everstart Series Central Division in 2013, is looking for another successful campaign to back up a rookie season that resulted in a berth to the 2012 Forrest Wood Cup.

“It’s great to partner with Elite Rod Sleeves, as they are an asset to protecting some of my most important equipment – my rods,” he said. “When I’m on the road and traveling for events, I have 20 to 30 rods with me and it’s crucial to make sure they don’t take a beating. The Elite Rod Sleeves help protect that investment, and their unique labeling system allows me to keep track of things like the type of line on a rod setup. I’m all about efficiency, and this system helps me be as efficient as I can be. I’ve used their products for a few years and they are a huge asset.”
