Costa Leg Rig Reviewed

Monday, October 1st, 2012


Last week, Costa Ludus released their custom leg rig. Built by High Speed Gear Inc, it incorporates their TACO mag pouches mounted to a platform mounted to the belt via two 1″ straps along with a single leg strap.

Now consider this. Costa Ludus has 100 of these in stock and they sold out in less than 1 hour. When Chris Costa released his pistol, it sold out in 5 minutes and before that he had sold out a 125 custom run gun with LaRue in less than 24 hours. Those rifles were going for about $2800 a piece. You can poopoo Costa or any other tactical trainer for that manner, but when I see numbers like that, I sit up and take notice. So does industry and so should you. If anything, you need to consider why, regardless of how you feel about him.

The Gear Locker conducted a review of the product which you can read here.

As we understand it, Costa Ludus is working on a resupply. When this happens they will be available at www.costaludusgear.com. We’ve also heard there should be some solid color versions to go along with MultiCam.

Chris Costa Announces RockTape as New Syndicate Partner

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Chris Costa has announced a new syndicate partner. I’ll certainly say that Costa uses what works. Below is the story of how he learned about RockTape and adopted it. The take away here is that for him, RockTape works but he doesn’t want you using it unless you need it. Otherwise, it would be like hobbling around on crutches when your ankles are fine.

For those that saw me earlier this year I was wearing an ACE wrap on my left arm due to all the shooting and ground work I have been doing this year. I just haven’t had a chance to give my arm a break and there is really no let up in sight. A student that does cross fit showed up in my class recently with this tape on her arm and when I inquired to what it was and did it really work, she wrapped my arm up with this product called RockTape. I, like many others, figured I would just fall victim to a placebo affect and believe that having stretchy tape on my arm was really helping me. I have to say I was dead wrong. My arm normally twitches when I shoot, that twitch was gone and my arm felt almost normal when I was shooting. It gave me support but also increased blood flow that is normally restricted in that area.

RockTape makes many different types based on how aggressive and what environment you may find yourself in, for example water they make a H2O tape. One of the cool things is that this tape lasts for about five days, and yes that means taking a shower with it on. Is RockTape for everyone, NO. Don’t wear it to look cool, wear it if you need it. There are many other applications based on problem areas with the body. Please stop by and check them out.
