A couple of North American Hunter team members were stuck back in Minnesota due to icy roads yesterday, so I went about the Mathews show alone for the last day. I was scrambling for time, but I managed to capture a few gear highlights to share with you. Here goes.
Do you film your hunts? If so, you definitely need to take a closer look at the new 2-Man Bowman treestand from Rivers Edge. The 2-Man Bowman is a ladder stand made specifically for bow hunting. It weighs about 104 pounds, so you’ll need a buddy to help you set it up, but with a 19-foot 1-inch height from the ground to the seat, it will be well worth it. You even have a 500-pound capacity, which mean you’d be able to fit two full-grown men in the stand without any problems. Check it out and other stands from Rivers Edge at HuntRiversEdge.com.
The next product seems to be rather simple, but it can easily make you a much more accurate archer; it’s the Torque Eliminator from Steady Form. The Torque Eliminator does just what the name says and can help eliminate torque put on your bow when you shoot. It mounts on the front or rear of the riser and string stopper and acts as a rear anchor point, which you rest on your arm for added stability. It’s available in five color configurations and is compatible with all bows. Visit SteadyForm.com to get all the details.
The Last thing I ran across was the new TZ CF13 pack from Tenzing. This pack has carbon fiber (CF stands for “carbon fiber”) in the frame of the back, which makes it more flexible and helps keep the weight to only 3 1/2 pounds. It’s also completely configurable for your next hunt: You can take off parts of the bag you don’t need; they simply detach from the frame. On top of all this, the folks at Tenzing claim it can hold 300+ pounds of gear. Get all the facts about the bag right here.
I ran into quite a few other products that I wasn’t able to fit into my blog during the last few days, so check back early next week for even more gear introductions from the Mathews Retailer Business show.
