Optronics Burners LED Aluminum Flashlights

This LED technology offers many advantages over other kinds of lights, such as brightness, no bulb heat and infinite bulb life (LEDs virtually never burn out). LEDs and batteries are protected in a sturdy aluminum housing that’s fully gasketed to protect it against the elements. The Burners HT-1000 LED is a 6-inch, three AAA batteries model with a powerful 1-Watt bright spot beam that makes this flashlight a good alternative to a compact spotlight. Another model, the Burners HT-107 LED Sportsman has a selectable light option. You can choose white, red or green with white being the brightest, red preserving night vision and green helping you see better while not spooking game. The green light can also help you to alert other hunters that someone is in the area.

Fin-Nor Ahab Rods

The Ahab Inshore rod series features four models of one-piece 7’ rods in the IGFA 8-pound class, making each a perfect complement to Fin-Nor Ahab 8 spinning reels. Rod actions are medium-light, medium, medium-heavy and heavy. All Inshore models feature high-modulus graphite blanks with genuine Fuji DPS reel seats and Fuji Alconite guides and comfortable AA Flora Cork handles. The stripper guides are reversed so the foot is up on the rod instead of down to reduce common “lassoing” inconveniences often associated with the use of braided line. All Ahab Offshore rods are one-piece and feature heavy-duty E-Glass composite blanks, Fin-Nor aluminum reels seats, Fuji Hardloy guides and EVA handles with gimbles.
