Stabilizer specialist will promote its innovative solutions to the US sport fishing community with key role in Gulf and East Coast Divisions of Gulf of Mexico big game tournament.

Gyro stabilizer technology company Smartgyro has been named Exclusive Gyro Sponsor of the 3rd annual MONGO Offshore Challenge.

As official Gold level sponsors for the Gulf Coast and East Coast Divisions in one of next year's major Gulf of Mexico big game tournaments, Smartgyro will strengthen its links to the US sport fishing community and showcase its unique stabilization solutions to thousands of anglers and spectators.

The MONGO Offshore Challenge 2022 runs for 153 days from May to September, with teams competing to catch the biggest blue marlin, swordfish, tuna, wahoo and mahi of the season.

With 132 teams and more than 2,000 anglers participating last year, the MONGO expanded the tournament with the addition of an East Coast Division for 2022, with boundaries including Atlantic waters from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, to Cape Canaveral, Florida. The established Gulf Division has boundaries covering the Gulf waters from Texas to Ft. Myers, Florida.

Sander Gesink, Marketing Director for Smartgyro said: "We are proud to secure this exclusive gyro sponsorship deal with MONGO and to back such a large and fast growing big game tournament in the Gulf of Mexico. Smartgyro is committed to meeting the needs of the international sport fishing community, and the MONGO Offshore Challenge is the perfect platform to raise our profile among some of the best US anglers. With competing boats starting from around 20 feet, the Smartgyro SG range is ideally suited to provide superior stabilization, as well as unique maintenance and service benefits, to improve the onboard experience and reduce downtime for this important market."

Tournament organizer Captain Jeremy Cox added: "We are hugely grateful to our sponsors and excited to welcome Smartgyro to join our third and biggest season so far. As our format encourages catch and release with high minimum size limits, there are all sizes of vessels competing and stabilization is a relevant issue for many of these anglers. Smartgyro will contribute to our tournament's aim to showcase the region's incredible fishing, and I am confident that this new collaboration will be beneficial to everyone involved."

Smartgyro's SG series of gyro stabilizers, the SG20, SG40, SG60 and SG80, provide design benefits and advanced roll reduction technology for a variety of vessels in the 30 feet to 80 feet range. Innovations include a revolutionary modular mechanical design which enables the compact stabilizers to be assembled directly inside the boat and serviced while onboard, minimizing time spent on maintenance. The SG range also features cutting-edge developments within the control electronics, braking system, liquid-cooled system and vacuum enclosure to maximize roll reduction, performance and efficiency.

The MONGO Offshore Challenge, named as a celebration of the huMONGOus fish caught during the season, opens for registration on February 1, with fishing dates from May 1 to September 30. For more information, visit
