Meopta USA Introduces the TGA 75 Collapsible Spotting Scope  

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

TAMPA, FL, March 19, 2018 – Meopta USA introduces the TGA 75 collapsible spotting scope.  Engineered for hunters, the classic draw-tube design of this rugged spotting scope allows the length to be shorten from 14.8 inches when fully extended to 9.8 inches when collapsed, making it easier to carry. Featuring a 75mm objective lens, the fully-multi coated, premium-grade optics ensure superior light transmission and edge-to-edge clarity across the entire field of view while Meopta’s proprietary MeoShieldTM coating protects external lens surfaces from abrasions and scratches.

The TGA 75 has a fully-rubber-armored, lightweight aluminum body built to withstand use in the toughest terrain and is available with three interchangeable eyepieces: 30x WA-R (wide angle ranging), 30x WA (wide angle) or 20-60x zoom.

“The compact TGA 75 spotting scope is ideal for hunters on the move and especially popular with those who pack into remote areas,” said Randy Garrison, Director of Meopta USA Sport Optics.  “Size, weight and optical performance are important, and the TGA 75 delivers on all fronts.”

Shockproof and water-resistant, the TGA 75 can be mounted on a tripod but is easily used without one by placing it on a tree, rock or pack for support.

Gerber Introduces New Fishing Collection Built For The Adventure Angler

Monday, July 31st, 2017

We recently had a chance to check out this new fishing line of tools from Gerber during last week’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. We already showed you one product. Now, here’s an overview of the whole line.

PORTLAND, OREGON – GERBER, an industry-leading manufacturer of personal knives, multi-tools, and gear, announced today that it will debut a category-defining collection of fishing products at iCAST 2017 in Orlando, Florida. The first look comes ahead of the spring 2018 launch date, when the collection becomes available for purchase nationwide.
For a new breed of fishing, a new generation of tools. Hardcore anglers need tools that work even harder. Tools that take them beyond the beaten path, beyond self-imposed limits, beyond anything and everything that stands in their way. Gerber introduces a new line of multi-functional fishing products that outfit the angler from the trek in, to the catch, to the victorious journey home. These tools are purpose-built for the adventure to extend the experience anywhere and everywhere the angler dares to tread.

“Gerber is known for reimagining the common tool and delivering intuitive, multi-functional gear.” said Andrew Gritzbaugh, Vice President of Marketing at Gerber. “This new collection of fishing products is rooted in Gerber’s extensive experience developing problem-solving products for users in expeditionary environments – from US Soldiers in Afghanistan to Elk Hunters in Montana. This new fishing collection will serve the experienced angler by providing intelligent design, insightful material combinations, and progressive new technologies that will enable them to venture farther and fish beyond.”

The new collection features 12 multi-functional tools that are painstakingly designed and tested, because if it’s taking up space in a kayak, on an ATV, or inside a vest, it better be worth it. Do more and go farther while taking up less space – explore a few leading products.

NEMO Equipment Celebrates 15th Anniversary With Wooden Spoon Shaper Kit

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

First off, it’s hard to believe that NEMO Equipment has been around for 15 years. Man, has that time flown. Congratulations to NEMO Equipment and in particular to their founder, Cam Brensinger. Everytime I talk to him I learn something new, but one thing that has never come up, is his love of carving. I found out about that when NEMO released their 15th Anniversary Spoon Shaper Kit. Cam assembled these kits in order to help others pick up his hobby.

It consists of a straight blade knife, a hook knife, a folding saw, a leather strop mounted on bamboo, handmade by Cam, and a pencil and sandpaper, all nestled in a custom waxed canvas tool roll. All you need is a piece of wood and a lazy afternoon.
