  1. These Fishpond vests and chest packs look more like something I like than what I saw from the brands I have used in the past. Thanks for the info. Now I wish I knew where I could check them out in person. I used to get most of my fly fishing stuff at Ramsey's in Paramus but I know that location has been gone for years and I live in Highlands anyone know if they carry it and I will drive up to Ledgewood or any other shops that carry their stuff?
  2. I read about that chest pack earlier on the fly fishing forum and looked it up only to find out the company was out of business and that looked much better than most of what I have seen today.
  3. That looks like a better vest at least in the pictures for a fraction of the price of what I saw Simms offer.
  4. I never thought anything was in the way wearing a vest. Everything was right at your fingertips without having to spin things from the back to the front and flatter to the body than a chest pack. I could also throw in the pocket in the back some lunch and rainwear as well as attach my net to the back and have it out of the way even if I just dropped it instead of sliding it back into the rear pocket. Don't mind me I guess I am old and without having used the knew systems I am just not seeing the advantage of what's popular today.
  5. I appreciate the offer but would rather see it go to someone who is new to it to help grow the sport.
  6. I am looking to take back up Fly Fishing after being away other than an occasional day here and there over the last 25 years. I lost my vest and accessories when my house was flooded in Hurricane Sandy. Now that my kids are adults I will be having more time to get back into it and am trying to figure out where to spend my money. I remember some people using fanny packs when I last was serious but most used a vest and now that seems vests have lost significant popularity and I am curious why because to me the fanny pack/chest pack while potentially being cooler definitely seems far les
  7. That may have been the most unethical shot I have ever seen with that other buck right behind it.
  8. How many years have you seen it? And do you have pictures to show how he has aged? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Think about what you wrote. Lol. You have just enhanced the anti’s argument against both Slug guns and Muzzleloaders. Since we banned center fire rifles long before I ever started hunting almost 40 years ago due to having the capability of reaching out hundreds of yards but now with sabot slugs and modern inline muzzleloaders you can reach out over 100 yards when the original reason for having the shotgun season was to keep shots to roughly 50 yards.

  12. Reread my post. I said in the whitetail woods not the range. A long shot in the woods is 100 yards. We aren’t in the Rockies where we can shoot a rifle accross a canyon hundreds of yards with nothing between you and the animal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It doesn’t matter. They will use this and other companies advertising against us. Frankly all these companies are doing is increasing draw weights and shooting lighter arrows that are virtually dry firing these CB’s. Been there and done that in the early 90’s in the begging of 3D archery. That’s when they implemented 5 grains per pound as the minimum. Many people were shooting. As low as 3 grains per pound and having bows blow up. Well look at these high speed CB’s and what is the grains per pound about 3-4. That’s why there is such reliability issues with all of these companies. These
  14. In this case this is the same argument against the anti’s. This technology weakens or arguments that got us the 150 feet and our longer hunting season because we are handicapped by our choice of weapons. That argument is out the window when companies say you can reach out 100 yards that is the same effective range as a slug gun or muzzleloader essentially in the whitetail woods.

  15. That’s the problem though with these crazy high speed and companies like Ravin promoting 100 yard 2” groups these CB’s go against the spirit if not the letter of the law for primitive weapons and even if the bow is capable of 100 yard accuracy unless you practice a lot the guy pulling the trigger isn’t. The anti’s I guarantee will use this against us in getting back the 450’ saftey zone vs the 150 we currently have in NJ and successfully and easily argue that they are no longer short range weapons.
