Robbie Patterson and Ricky Bodsford have developed some products that are truly difference makers in trolling motor performance. T-H Marine is excited to bring our manufacturing, sales, distribution, and customer service horsepower to the table to make sure that every boater has access to these great products. The products fit perfectly into our G-Force™ line of trolling motor enhancement products, including our hugely successful G-Force™ Trolling Motor Handle.

Robbie Patterson, president of R2 Marine, stated, “Ricky and I are very glad that we were able to team up with T-H Marine. We are excited to hand these products over to a partner that can fully expand the distribution of our product designs. The Eliminator and Equalizer have exploded in popularity and we want everyone to be able to get them.

T-H Marine’s Huntley also stated, “T-H Marine continues to be heavily invested in and very involved with bass fishing tournaments and growing our fishermen relationships. R2 has also been very involved with these same tournaments and people and they have used that knowledge to develop some really innovative products for the anglers that are tournament proven. We expect this relationship to be great for both our companies, and even more important, we think it will allow more anglers to enjoy the R2 Marine products along with the broad T-H Marine product line.”
