Naturally, Ike is also proud to splash a little bit of his personality across Hobie’s new launch. “I wanted to bring some of who I am to this kayak,” he says. “That’s portrayed through the coloring, logos, the toothy shark face stickers and, of course, that hot new firecracker red camo pattern. That color pattern has been part of my brand from the beginning. To me, it represents energy, excitement, fun and passion. These are all things that are built into who I am as a fisherman. They’re what I bring to the game every day. I hope it all helps to inspire anyone who tries the Mirage Pro Angler 14 360 Mike Iaconelli Edition to fish hard, love the outdoors, encourage others to get on the water, and keep it all fun.”
In other words, climb in, push off, and fish like Ike.
The new Hobie IKE edition Pro Angler 14 with MirageDrive 360 technology will be revealed at ICAST on Wednesday, morning, July 21, at the Hobie booth (#4420) at 10am EST.
