The Wiley X Elite Fishing Team continues to grow stronger with the recent addition of the 2019 World Predator Classic Winners, Radek Filip and Martin Stepka.

Filip and Stepka fought fierce battles, competing against some of the best anglers in the world, including the two time W.P.C. winner Luc Coppens and his new partner Jeroen Eijssens. With everything on the line, the team demonstrated what it takes to become champions as they won day one, placed fifth on the second day and finished third on the final day.

They chose to keep their tactics and fishing spots to themselves, which resulted in both a dramatic event and grande finale. Spectators from all over the world were kept on edge until the final results were confirmed. Radek Filip and Martin Stepka came out victorious as the worthy winners of the 2019 world predator classic.

On joining Wiley X’s Elite Fishing Team, Team Captain Radek Filip said: “We became the World Predator Classic 2019 champions not only thanks to our determination, endurance, and fishing skills but also thanks to the products we are using. I’ve used Wiley X eyewear for several years already, so I was familiar with the product. I spotted the W.P.C. winning pike through my Wiley X polarized prescription lenses.  I have full confidence in the Wiley X glasses. I am thrilled we can extend the cooperation and be members of prestigious Wiley X Elite Fishing Team.”

EMEA Vice President and Outdoor Director Thomas Wæver is equally delighted with the newest signings to the Wiley X Elite Fishing Team. Thomas said: “Wiley X will never compromise, and neither should you. We promise that we will always move forward to push the boundaries for what is possible when creating premium polarized eyewear. To produce the best-polarized fishing eyewear, we team up with the best of the best. By signing the 2019 World Predator Classic winners to the Wiley X Elite Fishing Team, we once again confirm that Champions across all fishing leagues want to use the best eyewear possible.

Working closely with Radek Filip and Martin Stepka will allow us to learn from their vast knowledge, which will help us stay at the forefront of fishing technology. We take everything that they say to heart and refine our products until we feel confident that what we make is the top of the line. It is an honor for Wiley X and me to be working with Radek Filip and Martin Stepka for years to come.”
