major league fishing and powerstop brakes

Bedford Park, IL – PowerStop® is a proud partner of Major League Fishing®(MLF).

“We are extremely excited to join the Major League Fishing family,” said Rodion Galperin, Creative Director of PowerStop. “Pros and enthusiasts of the outdoor sport community are very passionate and we look forward to supporting their passion to and from the lake”

“We are happy to have PowerStop as a partner of the MLF Bass Pro Tour,” says Jim Wilburn, President and CEO, Major League Fishing.  “The PowerStop Z36 Truck & Tow brake upgrade kit is a natural fit in the world of fishing as our pros and fans travel thousands of miles each year to great fishing destinations.  PowerStop upgrade brake kits are essential equipment for safe travel and return home.”

PowerStop & Anglers

With anglers needing to tow their bass boats over 60,000 miles a year, PowerStop was the obvious choice to give the MLF family peace of mind and braking confidence under extreme, long-term usage. Towing a boat and hauling the equipment needed to win a Bass Pro Tour Championship puts a great deal of stress on any rig. All that added weight can overpower standard, off the shelf brakes. That’s where PowerStop comes in.

The Z36 Truck & Tow Upgrade Brake Kit is designed specifically for trucks and 4x4s that tow, haul extra weight, or have big tire upgrades. We wanted to make sure whether it was over the Rocky Mountains, through the Ozarks, or even on regular interstate highways that both fishing fans and MLF professionals could get to the next lake safely with confidence. To get the job done, we combine Carbon Fiber Ceramic pads with Zinc-plated Drilled & Slotted rotors that provide severe-duty stopping power without sacrificing everyday drivability. To see what the Z36 Truck & Tow upgrade brake kit was really made out of, we put it to the test with MLF veteran Alton Jones Sr.

Everyone Deserves Better Brakes, Including the Environment

Z36 isn’t just a performance upgrade for your braking system. We understand how important preserving the environment and wildlife is to fishing and outdoor sports in general. That’s why PowerStop has proactively made all brake pads copper-free and compliant with California and Washington 2025 Regulations for preserving environmental and aquatic life. Because everyone deserves better brakes, including the environment.
