Maybe I’ll be the next EZV victim if you come to your senses and get rid of one!X2! These never seemed worth it to me. It might just be to my overall size and lack of flexibility but they were a one and done for me.
Similar is the EZV sight for me. Only difference is I’ve now owned one three different times. Think I’m going to make it work this time. Shoot it and go right back to my Fast Eddie XL. 0-3 should mean it’s benched forever but I still have a fourth one out in the garage…just in case.
They must work for some since they're still in business. I've tried all the varieties too since they were accurate out of mine (all in an inline muzzleloader.) A 100 yd. tracking job with a muzzleloader isn't super awesome in my mind. A 300 gr. Hornady or Barnes are my go to and they rarely go more than 25 yds with a well placed shot.That’s interesting. Most deer I’ve seen shot with these (a few myself) have such a mess of an exit wound they’re doing well to get a 100 yards before flopping over. Those results were from inlines, fwiw. But I know with muzzleloading, results can vary widely.
I've stopped using scent control products altogether, just use unscented soap and shampoo. We use unscented laundry detergent, baking soda, and vinegar for rinse aid on all of our laundry, so I just continue the same with my hunting clothes.Hawk tree hook. Gifted to me, I had two of these. The "ultra sharp auger tip" is so soft that it mushrooms and while you pour muscle and sweat into it, the only thing getting screwed is you.
Dead Down Wind deodorant. You won't smell like b.o., you'll smell like it...and that leads to an alarming rate of being busted. I started stealing my wife's crystal deodorant, problem solved. Also, DDW detergent. I won't touch another DDW product. Scent Killer gets the job done.

Yeah that’s been my experience with Powerbelts, but I can’t say that for everyone I know who’s shot them. But I also tend to err towards patient and well placed shots, not everyone does.A 300 gr. Hornady or Barnes are my go to and they rarely go more than 25 yds with a well placed shot.
Do not feel bad man, Spurs are not for everyone. It takes a lot of practice before someone truly feels safe in them.Just curious about other's experiences.
I'll go first and I might be a very small minority, but I will never use spurs again after trying them out. No, I did not have an accident, and yes I was using raw/old/heavy equipment that's been well used for decades. Not those new Gecko Carbon Fiber models. But I just did not feel safe at all. 10ft up a tree once and I knew it was not for me.
I also have reservation about mechanical but since I have not successfully hit a deer with one nor plan to use them, I cant deny they are popular and there must be a reason why they are so.
Man I love sit on tops… it’s those sit inside kayaks that wanna roll on the most in opportune times lolsit on top kayak. I went on one trip with a friend who insisted that I not bring my boat and ride in one of his. It was like paddling a refrigerator up a waterfall
I've literally never even felt close to rolling any kayak or canoe by accident. I can tell I've gotten fat and awkward in my 12ft boat this summer, but not close to flipping. I know they're popular, but so are summit climbers.Man I love sit on tops… it’s those sit inside kayaks that wanna roll on the most in opportune times lol
I had bad luck with DDW scent killer spray........ I won't touch another DDW product.
Can understand that. They aren't the speediest things but we're trading stability and the ability to stand for speed and maneuverability.sit on top kayak. I went on one trip with a friend who insisted that I not bring my boat and ride in one of his. It was like paddling a refrigerator up a waterfall
