Rigid Industries – PointClickFish.com Radio Show Sponsor

 

The PointClickFish.com Team would like to thank the Rigid Industries Team for their support of our radio show and network! The Rigid Teams makes an amazing product and unbelievable support! If you are in the market for LED lighting for your truck, boat, car, ATV you need to do yourself a favor and check these guys out!

Rigid Industires Support

The right fit!

We feel the  Rigid team makes  a product that will withstand the harsh saltwater environments. They work hard to design, develop and test products and continue to be on the cutting edge of LED technology. We are proud to have the onboard, endorse  and  use their  products!

Why Rigid?

Cutting Edge Technology – Rigid Industries has revolutionized the lighting world by our combination of LED technology and cutting edge electronics, extremely durable housings, and highly efficient, patented optic systems. All Rigid Industries LED lighting components feature:

  • Vibration Tested (MIL-STD-810G)
  • Corrosion Tested (ASTM B1117)
  • Submersion Tested (IP-68)
  • Dust Tested (IP-68)
  • Variable Voltage Range 9-36 VDC
  • Over / Under Voltage Protection
  • Full Range of Accessories & Mounting Options
  • Unbreakable Polycarbonate Lens
  • GORE Pressure Equalizing Vent
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

Get More for Less – Increase your light output and decrease your power consumption. Light is measured in Lumens per watt – the amount of light produced for every watt of electricity used. Rigid Industries LED Lights produce very high light output and require very little power to run them. This eliminates the need for additional power and reduces the drain on your battery compared to tradition lighting.

50,000+ Hour LED Lifespan – LED’s are solid state devices with no moving parts. This means they are able to withstand shock and vibration better than traditional Halogen, HID, and Xenon lights. Rigid Industries LED Lights have a lifespan of more than 50,000 hours, compared to Halogen and Xenon lights which typically last up to 1,000 and 5,000 hours respectively. In any environment, Rigid Industries LED’s are the logical choice.

Built to Last – Rigid Industries LED Lights are manufactured to withstand the harshest environments that mother nature can dish out. Our LED lights are made with only the highest grade materials available. Rigid Industries’ manufacturing process ensures LED Lights that are resistant to water penetration, shock and vibration. Touch them once, then sit back and admire the performance for the life of your boat. Everything should be this simple and enjoyable.

Clear & Consistent – As traditional light bulbs age, their color, consistency, and brightness diminish. New replacement bulbs will look noticeably different compared to the remaining bulbs. Customized LED binning ensures only the highest consistency of LED color and brightness for our LED products. Rigid Industries LED Lights start up quickly and efficiently with little battery draw. HID and Xenon technologies quickly drain huge amounts of current at start up in order to power the bulbs.

Captain Wild Bill and Marlin University – Fish with Capt Wild Bill

Marlin University hosts a special guest for the 2014 session in the Dominican Republic!

Fans of the Discovery Channel’s hit Deadliest Catch will recognize Capt. “Wild” Bill Wichrowski, the only captain on the show with a marlin lure hanging over the helm, as the no-nonsense captain who can get things done. Wild Bill is going to share this can-do attitude with the students of Marlin University’s Dominican Republic session scheduled for May 19-24, 2014. “I’ve always been a big fan of Marlin magazine and Marlin University,” Wichrowski says. “And this gives me a chance to spend sometime doing what I really love — chasing billfish!”

Wichrowski ran a game-fishing boat in Costa Rica for several years and now lives in Mexico on the Sea of Cortez, where he can keep his fishing skills sharp.

The Dominican Republic is one of most prolific spots on the Marlin University schedule, and we hope to enjoy another red-hot four days of billfishing. We normally encounter good numbers of both white and blue marlin — if we can stumble across a sail or two, someone will have a real shot at a grand slam!

Join us May 19-24, 2014, for this very special session of Marlin U with one of the most interesting stars of Deadliest Catch, Capt. “Wild” Bill Wichrowski!

For more information, visit marlinuniversity.com, or call Barbara Lehner at 407-571-4606. Book soon; we know this session is going to sell out fast!
