FLUSHING, Michigan – Carbon Express®, a leader in arrow technology and innovation, announces that starting July16th they will be giving away $50,000 worth of F-15TM Dual Blade broadheads.

“We know many hunters are looking for broadhead innovation. We are so confident in our new F-15™ were giving consumer a try for free. This is the perfect chance for them to get an incredible broadhead for just the cost of shipping and handling” stated Mike Snyder, the company’s Director of Marketing.

To test fly the F-15TM fixed blade or expandable, go to www.f15dualblade.com and order. There is a $4.95 shipping and handling, which is a great value when the 3 pack goes for approximately $39.99 at retail. This is a limited time offer and will only be available while supplies last.

Superior Scent Protection, Comfort and Performance – now available in additional models

PORTLAND, Ore. – This fall, LaCrosse Footwear Inc. will expand the popular Alpha SST™ offering with two new performance-driven styles. A 12” model for warm-weather, early season hunting and an 18” 2000G heavily insulated model for late season performance. These styles join the original 18” uninsulated and 1200G styles to round out the product offering for conditions throughout the season.

The Alpha SST™ is the latest innovation in scent free hunting footwear. Built with Scent Suppression Technology, the Alpha SST provides scent control on the inside of the boot as well as the outside, and will be favored by hunters who require scent free stealth while on the move. Constructed with a scent free waterproof exterior and a scent suppressing removable gator, the Alpha SST™ allows the hunter to vanish from its prey.

Every hunter knows, true stealth in the field depends on more than just scent-control. Built with legendary Alpha construction, the waterproof rubber over naturally insulating neoprene design delivers outstanding comfort and fit. The boots are easy to put on and take off; they are 100% waterproof and feature Ankle Fit™ support to ensure a successful hunt. And the unique outsole design provides outstanding traction and stability while walking to and from the stand.

LaCrosse has been the leader in scent free hunting since the beginning. In 1957, LaCrosse introduced the Grange, followed soon after by the legendary Burly Classic. LaCrosse then made a name for itself in the 90’s with its proprietary Alpha technology and furthers this legacy with the latest new offerings in the Alpha SST™ family.

Ideal for early season bow hunting, the 12” uninsulated model features Realtree® APG HD™. The late season option is an 18” style with 2000G Thinsulate™ Ultra Insulation featuring Realtree® AP HD™. Lined in nylon for comfort and snag-proof durability, the Alpha SST™ is made with traditional Alpha construction: rubber over naturally insulating neoprene. Scent free advantages come from a scent free rubber exterior and a scent suppressing removable gator. The 2000G model features the Advanced Traction System™ (ATS™) outsole for superior traction and no mud buildup, while the 12” uninsulated model features the proven Sport Chassis platform.

The new Alpha SST™ models will be available Fall 2010 for delivery to retail in July, in whole sizes 6-15.

Wright & McGill Rolls Out Skeet Reese Jr. Champion Combo

Wright & McGill Rolls Out Skeet Reese Jr. Champion ComboDENVER, COLORADO – The Wright & McGill Co. and Skeet Reese have come together to introduce the new W&M Skeet Reese Jr. Champion combo. The youth combination that young anglers actually want to use that also offers performance any angler can appreciate. This is no toy, but a rod and reel outfit downsized to fit a younger angler.

If you’ve ever spent time with Skeet, you know that he loves fishing almost as much as he loves kids! So, Skeet has helped to design a beginning anglers’ combo that features a high quality spincast rod and reel that will make it easy for young anglers to cast over and over again without getting tired. Old style spincast rods can be heavy and very difficult for small hands to hold onto tightly while casting. The new “split-handle” design in the Skeet Reese Jr. Champion combo allows young anglers to use their natural strength by using both hands in a split position on the rod. One hand is positioned with the thumb on the spincast reel to release the line while casting. The other hand is placed at the bottom of the rod on the fighting butt to provide leverage for long, accurate casts. This two handed position will work for either right or left handed casters and will make it easy for even the smallest angler to cast over and over again without needing help.

Combo Includes:

Wright & McGill Skeet Reese 5′, 2 pc. Spincast Rod and Reel Combo

* 2 pc. rod makes storage and travel easy.

* Fiberglass construction for durability and performance.

* New “split-handle” design allows small hands to cast easily and accurately all day long.

* Spincast reel makes casting easy and is pre-loaded with quality monofilament fishing


* Includes a safe, rubber casting plug for use at home when you can’t be on the

water chasing the big ones.

Skeet Reese DVD – Fishing for Fun!

*Skeet will take new anglers through all the important aspects of the sport of fishing. He will teach young anglers how to cast, tie knots, what lures to use and much, much more. The entire DVD is shot on location as Skeet teaches his own daughters about the sport he loves so much. Young anglers will watch the DVD over and over as they learn from Skeet and develop a love for fishing that will last them a lifetime!

Skeet Reese Tournament Hat – Sized for the young angler in mind

W&M Essentials Skeet Reese Jr. Champion Combo has a suggested retail of 39.99.

SureFire Micro and Mini Suppressors in Production

SureFire Micro and Mini Suppressors in ProductionFountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-end illumination tools and tactical products, have released their Mini and Micro suppressors. Both work with existing SureFire flash hider and muzzle brake suppressor adapters, but come in a significantly smaller package than previous models.

“Adding length and weight to a personal weapon system is usually an unwanted modification,” says Barry Dueck, director of the SureFire Suppressor Division. “These two new suppressors were designed with that thought in mind. We’re trying to reduce the users overall signature, not just the firearm’s.”

At 5.0 inches in length and 14.0 ounces in weight, the MINI suppressor is SureFire’s new flagship 5.56mm suppressor. It provides the same performance as its predecessor, the SureFire FA556-212 suppressor, but at one inch less in length and two ounces lighter in weight.

At 4.0 inches long and 12.0 ounces in weight, the compact and lightweight SureFire MICRO suppressor is designed to attenuate the sound signature of a carbine or rifle to a safe level, as well as reduce the dust and flash signature while minimizing added weight and length to s host weapon with a 14.5″ barrel or longer. The MICRO, like the MINI, features the Fast Attach® system for rapid attachment/detachment on any weapon equipped with a compatible SureFire suppressor adapter. Thanks to SureFire’s overlapping mount, only 1.75 inches are added to the length of the rifle.

SureFire’s proprietary suppressor design not only reduces the sound levels and muzzle flash of a fired weapon, helping to protect an operator’s hearing and keep his location concealed, it also typically increases projectile velocity and improves a weapon’s accuracy. This is SureFire’s philosophy of Total Signature Reduction™. Contrary to existing suppressor models, which typically degrade performance of a 1-2 MOA (Minute of Angle) rifle to 3-4 MOA-sometimes as much as 8 MOA, SureFire suppressors typically improve grouping sizes.

Most suppressors also cause a shift in a weapon’s point-of-zero when attached or detached. But under fire, an operator seldom has the time to re-zero his weapon after attaching a suppressor. With a SureFire Suppressor, there is no need to re-zero the weapon. Its Fast-Attach mechanism locks the suppressor onto the firearm in the same position every time, producing a negligible, repeatable point-of-impact shift. And SureFire Suppressors are as durable as the barrels they’re mounted on, making fulltime suppressor use not only probable but practical.

All SureFire suppressors includes a nylon cleaning brush and a padded, ballistic nylon MOLLE pouch for storage. The suppressors are available in a black or dark earth finish. For more information or to find a SureFire suppressor dealer, visit www.surefire.com.
