Primos added another call to their line up in the Little Big Roar.  This call is a scaled down version of the original Buck Roar.  This compact call features a wooden barrel rather than rubber, it also lacks the snort wheeze feature of it's larger counter part.  The Buck Roar has been my go-to call for it's ultra realistic deep grunts.  It is one of the few calls I have used where you can get great volume for longer calling without breaking up and sounding terrible.  I look forward to see if the Little Big Roar can live up to the original call's sound.

ASAT camouflage has a new 3D suit out that is identical to the ones from the past except for one feature.....  Snow camo!  The suit looks like it will fill a niche currently lacking in the market, a 3D winter camo outfit.  These suits are made of a mesh base with polyester "leaves" sewn to the mesh.  I have used the standard ASAT leafy suit for years and have always been extremely pleased with it's performance and durability.  Another great tool for those late season hunters.

Sims Vibration Labs is a company who revolutionized the way we look at reducing vibration and noise from our bow setups.  I can still remember when people said they would never put those "ugly mushrooms" on their bows limbs. Look at Sims today, the leader in sound and vibration control.  For this year a product of theirs I took notice of was the redesign of what may be the best selling stabilizer ever, the S-Coil.  They lengthened it, but removed material from four sections of it, now making it look more like a "+".  These "arms" should soak up more vibration than the old style working separately to cancel any oscillation separately rather than as a whole.

A totally new concept in broadheads was released, it's name The Reign.  This broadhead features a very impressive tip that they call the Shatterhead.  It appears that it would have no trouble breaking it's way through bone upon entry / exit.  What makes this broadhead so uniques is the blades actually swivel when they come in contact with bone to increase penetration and to keep your arrow's path true through the animal without it changing course via deflection.  The Swiveltech blades automatically recenter after contact with bone leaving a 1 3/8"s wound channel through the animal.  It is constructed of 100% stainless with a .03" blade thickness.  The two photos to follow show the Swiveltech blades centered and then offset.
