    "Hi, I'm John Jones and I just won $500 from Typhoon in the Wear It To Win It contingency program. I signed up for Wear it To Win It at Then I competed in the Walmart BFL tournament and won first place. I really like the Harbor sunglass (take the sunglass off of your face and show it to the camera). The AquaView Meridian polarized lens is super dark and really cuts down the glare which makes a long day of fishing easier on my eyes. Thanks Typhoon!"
