Monster SuperStar HotShot Brings Great Music on the Go

Bluetooth speakers have become quite common and almost like a tool. The SuperStar HotShot by Monster ($49.95) is a super compact speaker with the ability to clip onto a backpack, jacket, or belt. Does a speaker this small still bring sound worth listening to? I was able to review the HotShot and my findings might surprise you. Let’s take a…

The Pocket Shot Evolves the Slingshot

Growing up a country boy, I had my fair share of time with a slingshot. From target shooting to things I probably should not shoot, my skill was actually pretty good. A new evolution of those slingshots is now on the market; the Pocket Shot allows users to fire projectiles at up to three times the speed of a slingshot.

Zepp Introduces the Smart Bat: Get Accurate Game Readings from Swings

I have used Zepp products during softball practice with my athletes for a couple of years. The ability to break down a player’s swing from speed to bat paths is a wonderful teaching tool.

Exos-Gear Bravo Series Backpack Review

I recently reviewed the commuter series pack from Exos-Gear and have enjoyed using it with my every day computer gear. The company also has a tactical style backpack called the Bravo Series, which retails for $37.95.  While I had planned on using the backpack as my new shooting bag, I actually found an unintended use that works out great.

I recently was able to try out the Commuter Series from Exos-Gear ($29.95). I filled it with some gear and headed out. Let’s take a look!
