Mathews Releases New Line Of No-Cam Bows For 2015

Mathews Archery has launched two new bows with all-new No Cam STTM technology. This innovative new system utilizes two circular and concentric string tracks to create a balanced system with a radically smooth draw cycle and straight and level nock travel for superior accuracy.

Driven by No Cam STTM technology, the all-new No Cam HTR is a truly integrated system featuring shorter, more rigid quad limbs, a less-reflexed riser, twin Harmonic Stabilizers and a patented Focus Grip. Reaching speeds up to 330 feet per second, the No Cam HTR measures 32 inches axle-to-axle with a 6 5/8-inch brace height. RockMods come standard on the No Cam HTR and are available in 65 percent, 75 percent and 85 percent let-off. The innovative new bow comes in five exclusive finishes, including the new Stone Tactical and Lost Camo OT.

No Cam STTM Technology created such a balanced and accurate system that it also drove the design of a new target bow, the No Cam TRG. In addition to the new No Cam Technology, the No Cam TRG features a less-reflexed riser with new cut-outs for added strength and stability. Twin Harmonic Stabilizers are also tuned to the system’s 38-inch axle-to-axle frame. It’s available in 7-, 8- or 9-inch brace heights and four exclusive finishes, including the new Black Anthem. Rock Mods also provide a solid back wall and further customization; offering either 65 percent or 75 percent let-off. With all these options, setting up a bow to fit even the most discriminating shooter’s needs has never been easier.

Along with the new No Cam bows, Mathews also introduced a new high-performance, dual-cam bow, the Chill X Pro, and the Z2, a new value option in the Solocam line.

Hands-On Craftsmanship The Key To Reflexion’s Success

Reflexion Swimbaits, based in Mentone, began as most bait companies do. A fisherman wanting to save money on baits and to build better baits began melting plastic in his kitchen.

David Dempsey has always enjoyed hand-crafting, so with nothing more than a plaster of Paris mold, he went to work in his wife’s microwave. His initial attempt filled the kitchen with burned plastic smoke just as his wife and kids came in the door.

Every success begins with a failure. Today, Reflexion Swimbaits has a full line of quality swimbaits that are the rage from the U.S. to Australia.

Each Elite LT and Weedless swimbait is hand-poured. Those who purchase the custom baits find a premium-level product different than any other.

Reflexion is committed to excellence in the lures they make. Sometimes that means it takes a little longer to do things because shortcuts are not an option. They strive to deliver the best lure each time you make a purchase.

Celestron’s LandScout Binos

When it comes to binoculars, all outdoorsmen and women know what they need, and they know what they want. They need binoculars that are tough and durable, but they also want a quality lens and superior features. The new LandScout Porro Prism series from Celestron combines those features with a terrific price.

These compact binoculars are already a favorite among hunters, and they’re also perfect for general outdoor use, everything from sporting events, boating and birding to camping. The affordable price makes the new LandScout Porro Prism series an excellent first binocular for young hunters and for those who carry a backup, but the quality also makes them perfect for most hunting situations. Bowhunters love the compact, durable design, and many hunters use the LandScout Porro Prism as their primary binocular. Boaters like to leave them in the dash compartment, and they’re also a great binocular for keeping in the vehicle’s center console for quick glassing of fields. From the ballgame to the deer stand, versatile LandScout Binoculars get the job done at a great value.

All models have large exit pupils, so images are rendered bright even at full magnification. Low-light performance is excellent, a feature that could save a hunt when a buck appears first thing in the morning or at dusk.

The BaK-4 Prisms increase contrast and resolution for sharper images with more detail. LandScout Binoculars are tripod-adaptable and include objective lens caps, a neck strap, rainguard, lens cloth, carrying case and a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Celestron’s new LandScout Porro Prism series offers all the features of higher-priced competitors at a better price.

All Celestron LandScout binoculars are waterproof, fog proof and nitrogen purged. Other great features include an aluminum frame that is lightweight yet durable to withstand rugged use in the field. Twist-up eyecups are adjustable to position the user’s eyes at the perfect distance for comfortable viewing with or without eyeglasses.

Trulock Waterfowl Chokes

Nothing is more frustrating for a waterfowl hunter than to do everything right and have birds drop into range, only to watch them all fly off after the barrage of shots. It’s even worse when a hunter knows he connected, but it didn’t bring the duck down. The lead-shot ban changed the waterfowl game, making it tougher to dishrag birds like the old days.

Trulock’s Super Waterfowl (SW) choke tube is a must-have for any serious duck or goose hunter. With all the effort that goes into a waterfowl hunt, why not throw the best pattern of shot possible at the moment of truth?

Trulock Super Waterfowl Extended Choke Tubes are extended, knurled and have a black oxide finish. They are available in three degrees of full choke —.030, .040 and .050. The Trulock Super Waterfowl choke was specifically designed for use with steel and other environmentally friendly shot. The Trulock Super Waterfowl tubes are a great choice for hard shot like Hevi-Shot. They are tough enough for even the hardest tungsten or nickel shot.

All Super Waterfowl chokes are manufactured from 17-4 PH grade stainless steel. This steel has an extremely high resistance to staining and rust. Trulock Chokes are heat-treated to a high strength level (200,000 PSI) in order to resist wear. Trulock crafts all their chokes on CNC lathes from solid bar stock. Welded tubing is never used. All extended chokes are knurled for easy installation and removal (no wrench needed).

Trulock offers the same guarantee for the Super Waterfowl as the company does with all their chokes—improved shotgun performance, absolutely guaranteed.

The superior products and service by the staff at Trulock Chokes has made the Georgia-based company an industry leader. Trulock now produces more than 2,000 different choke tubes.
