PXG Addresses a Big Part of Your Game with Milled Putters

Published

on

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.

Mean Bean Trailer is Man-Style Glamping

Published

There are some pretty amazing RVs out there. These supposed “recreational vehicles” are more like homes on wheels with all the attendant amenities you can imagine. That’s all well and good for the retired crowd—the people who are think camping is pulling into a campground, unrolling the awning and then catching up on soap operas inside their air-conditioned trailer.

But that’s not the kind of camping you’re looking for. Oh sure, you want some amenities, but you go to the great outdoors to be outdoors. The Mean Bean Trailer is what you need for your next adventure.

The teardrop trailer fits a queen size, four-inch thick, foam mattress so you have plenty of room to sprawl out, or to share with someone. The interior features a plastic laminated cabinet with a galley pass through. You can dim the recessed lighting and open the roof vent for fresh air.

The galley comes complete with a stainless steel counter and an under-counter cabinet doors Coleman Extreme 50qt wheeled ice chest. The 18-inch Partner Steel two burner stove will have you set for all your cooking needs.

The trailer also comes with AC wall plugs and USB plugs to charge your electric devices. It also has a 10-gallon water tank. And for those really tough journeys, the Bean has a Timbren’s Axle-less trailer suspension system.

Australian Finds $100,000 Gold Nugget Using Metal Detector

Published

Don’t rush out and pick up a metal detector right away. The odds of finding a nugget the size of the one found by an Australian man are pretty rare. Still, it would be nice to find a gold nugget valued at AUD$100,000 with just a metal detector.

That’s what happened for a man in Australia’s Kalgoorlie region. “He walked into my shop and showed me the nugget in his hand with a big smile on his face,” shop owner Matt Cook told the BBC. Cook reportedly owns the shop where the lucky man brought the nugget.

“It was just a bit bigger than a packet of smokes, and the density of it was incredible, so heavy.” The nugget weighs 1.4 kilograms.

According to experts, finds like this happen a couple of times a year, but usually in smaller traces. Professor Matt Spearing, director of the Western Australia School of Mines at Curtin University explains, “Along with the mines around, a lot of people go around as prospectors on the weekend, as a hobby.

“Other people do it on a full-time basis. Most of the gold found is in the less than half an ounce category, but they do find them fairly frequently.”

Sounds like a pretty good hobby—if you’re lucky.

Kick Survival’s Butt with the Omniblade Multitool by Teryx

Published

By

Lost in the woods? No problem. Zombie Apocalypse? Bring it on. Mother-in-law visiting? Oh yeah.

Okay, not that last one, but the Omniblade Multitool by Teryx has you covered. The 5-in-1 multitool works as a machete, hatchet, hammer, saw, and knife. The tool starts out as a full tang kukri machete with its characteristic elegant curve. The final inches of the machete also serve as a closed-guard utility knife.

A cut-out in the machete acts as the handle for the knife and for the Tomahawk style hatchet at the other end of the tool. Opposite the head of the hatchet is a hammer that doubles as the guard for the tool’s handle. Finally, a seven-inch crosscut handsaw is cut into the back of the machete blade.

The handles can be wrapped with paracord, thus increasing the usefulness of the tool. The tool measures 23 inches in length and is 6.5 inches at its widest. Made of 42OJ2 steel, the tool weighs 29 ounces.

And just to prove out the concept, the inventors of the Omniblade Multitool will be going out on a survival trip, the duration of which is determined by how many backers they get for the tool’s production. Each contribution to their Kickstarter fund comes with additional votes that extend how long the guys will stay out—which shouldn’t be a problem as long as they have the multitool with them.
