11/14/2017 – POMPANO BEACH, FL – FELL Marine, wireless boat safety innovator, today announced that Bass Pro Shops has reaffirmed its commitment to keeping boaters safe by offering FELL’s wireless man overboard system, the MOB+™, at eleven of its Bass Pro Shops locations around the US. The MOB+ and accessories can also be purchased from Bass Pro Shops online via their website, www.bassproshops.com.
“Bass Pro Shops recognizes that their customers are looking for the best safety products to make their time fishing and boating safer,” said FELL CEO Christian Frost. “We are very excited to have FELL Marine’s MOB+ stocked in-stores and online in time for the holiday season at Bass Pro Shops and look forward to expanding our offerings with them in the future.”
About FELL Marine’s MOB+
The MOB+ Wireless Man OverBoard system is an innovative, ABYC-compliant, life-saving safety device for boats. It provides greater freedom of movement than a traditional kill switch lanyard, and stops the engine should the operator fall overboard. Up to four xFOB™ units can be connected to the xHUB™ at the same time, with one unit acting as the captain’s stop unit, and the additional three as alarm units for passengers.
The system consists of an easy-to-install xHUB (mounted on or near the boat console) and a wearable xFOB. The two communicate wirelessly with each other and stop the engine when the xFOB is submerged in water or is beyond range of the xHUB. The xFOB can be worn on the wrist, around the neck, or clipped to a PFD using either the xBAND™ or xTAG™ accessories. The waterproof xFOB has more than 300 hours of battery life, and is powered by an easy-to-change standard coin cell battery. The xHUB connects to the boat power (12V-24V) and to the engine stopping system. The system is intuitive and easy to use through a one-click user interface and compatible with all major outboard and most sterndrive engine brands.

About Bass Pro Shops
In 1971 young Johnny Morris, frustrated by the lack of tackle in local stores, rented a U-Haul trailer and took off across the country filling it with the newest premium fishing tackle he could find. When he returned home to Springfield, Missouri, Johnny started in the fishing business with eight feet of space in his dad’s liquor store which became a popular stopping-off place for local and out-of-state fishermen on the way to the Ozark’s famous bass lakes. This was the beginning. Bass Pro Shops today isn’t just fishing. It is an outdoor retail leader in hunting, camping, nature gifts, outdoor cooking, and much more.
