You may not necessarily associate the term “Xtreme” with golf, but Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG) definitely merits the title, especially with the recent launch of their new 100 per cent milled Gen2 putters. PXG’s new putters come in eight different head models—Bat Attack, Operator, Gunboat, Mini Gunboat, Lucky D, Closer, Mustang, and Brandon.
You can also select from three hosel options (double bend, plumber’s neck, and heel-shafted), two finishes (black and chrome) and adjustable sole weights of 5-gram increments ranging from 5 to 20 grams (the weights are made of either titanium or tungsten).
According to PXG, “putts account for roughly 40 per cent of shots taken, yet only a small percentage of golfers make an effort to be properly fitted.” The many options and configurations available in the Milled Putters allows for golfers to create the best putter for themselves. Working with PXG’s online ordering system, golfers can choose their preferred dexterity, loft, lie, shaft length, and grip.
PXG also uses an innovative pyramid pattern on the face of the putters, which the company claims increased the “bite” into the golf ball cover, resulting in better roll, better sound, and better feel.
PXG offers its Gen2 putters starting at USD$425. Weight kits can be purchased separately. You can also select the fitting service.
Svord Carcass Splitter Cleaver Looks Menacing
Sometimes looks and names match up, as in the case of the Svord Carcass Splitter Cleaver. Looking at the knife, you can imagine it being the titular weapon in a slasher movie. It looks threatening and sinister. The cleaver measures 28.75 inches in overall length, with an 11-inch blade—that’s enough length left over for solid two-handed grip on the cleaver.
Made of 7mm thick 8670-grade high carbon steel, it has a bit of a weathered look, except on the edge, which is honed razor sharp. At the end of the handle, a hook finishes off the horror movie look.
But don’t let the looks scare you away. This is one of the highest quality blades you’ll ever find. It was handmade by Master Cutler Bryan Baker in Aiuku, New Zealand. The blade features a hand applied differential temper—the cutting edge was done to 58 Rockwell C, while the spine and handle were done to 45-48 Rockwell C.
A Micarta handle done in a black matte finish is riveted to the handle using quarter-inch solid copper pins that were hand peened. The blade also comes with a vegetable tanned, hand-stitched Italian leather scabbard. And the looks? They weren’t inspired by slasher films; rather, the design is one used by traditional village butchers to cut hanging carcasses in half.
Smart Connect Gold Series Spinning Reel with Bluetooth Frees Your Hands While Fishing
If you’re a fisherman, then you know that sometimes fish can be both brazen and wily. They’ll steal your bait right off the hook, leaving you holding an empty line. There’s an art to setting the hook, and now there’s technology to match.
Tackobox has developed a smart reel that can help you bring in even the most cunning of adversaries. The Tackobox Smart Connect Gold Series Fishing Reel uses sensors to detect any nibbles at your bait. When the sensors are tripped, the reel sends a message to your smartphone, letting you know it’s time to haul in your catch. The reel is rechargeable via a USB connection and has a 40-hour battery life.
It uses IOS or Android phones for its free downloadable app, and it can monitor up to four reels simultaneously and provide you with weather reports and GPS data. The reel is made of composite and features an aluminium spool. It is both left and right hand interchangeable and has a 4.7:1 gear ratio with a one-way clutch and instant anti-reverse bearing 4+1 BB.
Perhaps one of the most alluring details of the reel is that it frees up your hands to take care of other things while you’re fishing. You won’t have to hold onto the reel at all times to detect when your bait has tempted a fish into taking a bite. Instead, you can occupy yourself with snapping some photos, reading a book, or taking a nap—all while catching supper.

It may not be Batman’s utility belt, but the Rino Ready Companion earns the title of being the most advanced two person survival kit out there. It’s those first 72 hours of a crisis that you need to worry about, and the Companion has you covered with over 40 items to match your needs.
