    gear reviews...

    just real quick what new or old piece of equip, have you had or just got that performed to or passed your expectations or failed horribly?

    if you would please give us a quick over view of your expierence with that piece of equip.

    at christmass i burned up some gift certificates and i got a pair of Barska atlantic 10x42 binocs and one of those crooked horn outfitter bino system straps.

    both to me were awesome. as most of you know i hunt on the cheep. i dont need the best of gear to hunt with. i got the binocs for $70 and the crooked horn strap for $10. i have never been one to wear binocs while hunting but always found myself digging through my bag when i seen a deer at a distance. now i never leave the truck to hunt without them on my chest.

    i liked the binocs at the store when i could focus in on a fish mount across the store and clearly see the eye and start counting scales behind the gill. almost as well as i could with the $500 pair next to them in the case. to me they seem to collect enough light to see clearly 300 or so yards in the last 10 min of light. good enough for me.

    the crooked horn strap i think is what makes it for me. they hold the binocs tight to my chest even when taking a straight down shot and i can walk a few miles and never know they are on my neck unlike most standard straps that come with the binocs.

    in my book 2 thumbs up to the barska binocs and 2 thumbs up to the crooked horn bino system.

    I have the bino strap thing also. It makes taking binos with you so much easier. Ross, did you get the bino hide as well with your strap?

    I have one item to add. Its the specialty archery super ball peeps. They come in a kit so you can change the size of peep to fit your sight or light condition. Its a great little product that I have on all my bows.
