Quad 400 Crossbow, Pocket Paks

While we're checking on our quota application results (I missed General Gun on my favorite WMAs = bummed)  and making plans for the fall hunting seasons, manufacturers are still rolling out new gear. I've pasted some news items below that have crossed my desk this week. --Jeff Weakley, Editor

From Press Release

Barnett has redefined one of its most popular bows, the Quad 400, optimizing it to deliver the bolt to the target with improved accuracy and speed.

Barnett engineered the Quad 400 with a patented high-density, gas-assist molded stock with an accu-comfort thumbhole grip, a first in the industry. The high tech composite stock is lighter, more comfortable and contains an integrated cocking device attachment. A contoured cheek piece not only conceals the attachment, but also adds to its comfort and appeal. With 15.5 inches of power stroke, quad limbs and CNC machined cams, the Quad 400 will provide devastating accuracy with speeds of 345 fps and only 150 pounds of draw weight.

The CROSSWIRE string and cable system blends Barnett's fibers with the industry's toughest serving materials, ensuring the shooter has the most stable and reliable string in the industry. As a result, shooters experience a faster, quieter and more precise shot.

In addition, the crossbow comes with an Anti Dry Fire Trigger Safety System, making it even more reliable in all conditions. This Metal Injection Molded Trigger boasts a smooth 3.5 pull and contains the added safety precaution of the Anti Dry Fire feature, eliminating unintentional dry firing of your bow.  The Anti Vibration Isolation Foot Stirrup is included as well, allowing for 30 percent reduced vibration and noise.

The Quad 400 is available through retailers as a complete package with the crossbow, a Barnett illuminated 3x32 multi-reticle scope or a premium red dot sight, a quick-detach quiver and three high-quality Easton 20" arrows. The Quad 400 also allows for the integration of a crank-cocking device.  The Quad 400 is 37 inches long and 26.75 inches wide and is proudly made in the U.S.A.  Specs:

• Speed: 345 FPS

• Kinetic Energy: 112 ft. lbs.

• Draw Weight: 150 lbs.

• Power Stroke: 15.5"


From Press Release

Pocket Pak Ammo and Fishing cases are sleek storage containers for sportsmen looking to store, organize, and carry their equipment.  The Paks slip smoothly into all types of apparel pockets, while maintaining full enclose of supplies to protect from damage and the elements.

The products have been field tested by both the American Hunting and American Fishing Clubs to ensure durability and ease of use. The Master unit of both the hunting and fishing cases is a carry case that holds 6 smaller Pocket Pak organizers. Pocket Pak Ammo Cases come with 6 individual ammo Cases, each holding 4-5 rounds of ammunition.  Ammo Pocket Paks protect bullet tips from deforming, ensuring a more accurate bullet and extending ammunition life, which saves hunters the hassle and added cost of wasted ammunition.

Fishermen can turn to portable Pocket Pak Fishing Cases to replace unwieldy traditional tackle storage. Their innovative design makes Fishing Pocket Paks great for storing  spoons, spinners, lures, small hooks, split shot, lead sinkers, jigs, swivels and plugs.  Now everything can fit neatly into standard pants pockets, freeing fishermen to set out prepared for a full day on the water.

Manufacturing of both products will be done at Indepak in Portland Oregon.  Click here for more product information.


From Press Release 

The same qualities that keep predators such as coyotes, bobcats and foxes at the top of the food chain also make them difficult to hunt. Not only are these predators intelligent, but they have remarkably keen senses that alert them not only to potential prey, but to the hunters in their area. Tink's predator lures manipulate their unbelievable sense of smell to work in the hunter's favor. These scents help to level the playing field a bit.

Tink's Coyote Mist Predator Lure is ideal for bringing in shy coyotes. Formulated with only the best grade of natural urine, not only will this mist lure them to within range, but it stops them in their tracks affording you a better shot. The 4 oz. bottle features a spray top allowing mist to drift downwind to stick to vegetation.

Tink's Rabbit Mist Predator Lure utilizes the urine of predators' most preferred food source. Ideal to use with decoys and calling, the rabbit lure adds one more level of realism to your hunting setup. Like the Coyote Mist Predator Lure, Tink's Rabbit Mist Predator Lure stops predators in their tracks, and the 4 oz. bottle's spray top provides a mist that will drift downwind and stick to vegetation.

Tink's Predator Smokin' Sticks are designed to smell like rabbits -- the most preferred food source of coyotes and bobcats. Once lighted, each stick smokes for 15 to 20 minutes. The scented smoke gets down range farther and faster than other scent-dispersal methods. Each package contains 10 sticks.
