YOLOtek’s PowerStick Wins Best in Show at ICAST

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

YOLOtek’s PowerStick Wins Best in Show at ICAST 

 

Revolutionary phone-charging product takes home top honor in the convention’s Giftwares category.

SHAWNEE MISSION, Kan. (July 15, 2015) – Kansas City-based company YOLOtek announced today that their original PowerStick has won Best in Show in the Giftwares category at the 2015 International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST), the world’s largest sportfishing trade show. The PowerStick, which plugs into a boat’s navigation light port and allows boaters and anglers to securely charge their cell phones while on the water, received the top honor in its category being selected as one of only 24 products to earn a Best in Show title at this year’s event.

“We’re absolutely thrilled that the PowerStick was named Best in Show in its category,” said Christian Corley, Founder and product developer of YOLOtek. “We knew we had a great product, but its always gratifying to get validated and recognized by the top people in the industry. This is truly amazing.”

First released in December 2014, the PowerStick was developed after Corley received a request for help from his father and brother, Roger and Bryan Corley. Both tournament bass anglers, the pair was looking for a way to keep their phones from losing battery power while they were on the water, so they called Corley, an entrepreneur and inventor with a proven track record of creating new products and bringing them to market quickly. Just 18 hours after receiving their call, Corley had designed the PowerStick and was ready for his family to give it a test run. After receiving positive feedback from his father and brother, Corley looked to test the product on an angler outside of his family and called Elite Angler Casey Scanlon with whom he had connected on a previous product release. Like Roger and Bryan Corley, Scanlon also was thrilled by the product and its results.

“What we’ve found is that this product meets a huge need for anyone who wants to capture photos or video from their phones while on the water,” said Corley, who has since received official endorsements from Scanlon and another top angler, Brandon Coulter. “Some people have told us they’ve been waiting for a product like this for years, so it’s truly our honor to be able to bring it to life for them and help them capture those exciting moments on the water.”

Since producing the PowerStick, YOLOtek has released three additional products: the AquaStick, AquaStickPRO and OL’ SALTY, all of which allow boaters and anglers to securely record footage from multiple angles using action sport cameras while on the water. YOLOtek’s second release, the AquaStickPRO, already has gained a footing in the industry, being named one of the top 13 products at the 2015 Bassmaster Classic Outdoor Expo in February and becoming the Official Power Mount Provider of Major League Fishing in late June.

“The industry has been so welcoming to us,” said Corley. “We appreciate everyone who has given our products a chance, and we hope to continue developing new products that allow us to enhance the fishing and boating experience and to show the world how great this sport truly is.”

YOLOtek Releases New Saltwater-friendly OL’ SALTY

Latest addition to the acclaimed AquaStick line helps ocean anglers capture unique footage.

SHAWNEE MISSION, Kan. (July 15, 2015) – Kansas City-based company YOLOtek announced today the release of its latest product, OL’ SALTY, designed to allow anglers to capture unique photos and videos from ocean boats. The latest addition to the AquaStick line, which enables members of the fishing industry to record footage from multiple angles, OL’ SALTY extends up to 8 feet and holds action sport cameras securely in place, enabling them to take ocean footage without leaving the boat.

“We’re excited to reach a new target in the market with OL’ SALTY,” said Christian Corley, YOLOtek’s owner and product developer. “We’ve been able to significantly help the freshwater anglers with the previous products, and now we've been able to extend our innovative services to the saltwater folks.”

Originally inspired by Hall of Fame angler Bill Dance, OL’ SALTY is the fourth product to be released by YOLOtek, whose AquaStickPRO was named one of the top 13 new products at the 2015 Bassmaster Classic Outdoor Expo in February. After earning a loyal and enthusiastic following of elite anglers including five-year pro Casey Scanlon, YOLOtek was named the Official Power Mount Provider of Major League Fishing in June and will be featured in the league’s upcoming season.

“The industry has been incredibly welcoming to us as we’ve launched our initial products this year,” said Corley, who founded YOLOtek as a way of helping his father and brother—both tournament bass anglers—keep their phones charged while on the water. “It’s our goal to help them more easily capture the fun and excitement of angling through devices and technology. We think OL’ SALTY helps achieve that."

OL’ SALTY will be released at the new product show at the ICAST Conference in Orlando, Fl., beginning July 15.
