The Cool Product Review Thread!

  Just like it says, did you get something cool and wanna share your thoughts on it? Did you get something that promised things and fell flat? Blow the whistle on these bad products!! Avoid big things like cars or dull products like washing machines and toasters. 

   Cool things can be: A new Bluetooth wireless speaker, a knife, binoculars, a multi-tool, metal detector, etc,... You know, small cool stuff that's rave worthy! Naturally I have quite a few examples ready to kick start it. 

So give it some thought and share the wealth! Let us in on the next best thing that we just might be missing as well as what trashy things to avoid!

Blast Knuckle Taser $35-$50

I got mine for $50 at the liquor store couple blocks down. I have another taser already, but that one sits at 775,000. These have a rating of 950,000 volts. Sounds louder and more of a continous? current when held. My original taser has more noticeable gaps between shocks. This knuckle taser sounds like i'm charging up my levels. (arcade fighting games). I've shocked myself before with my old one, just so I know what i'd be shocking others with. Not that bad after I felt it the first time. Just because I say it's not that bad doesn't mean it feels good either lol Lot of people back down so easy when a taser is brought up. Dropped one guy at the tennis courts with it lol shocked him on his right shoulder and he dove to the ground. lololol The worst ones are the ones that are by accident. When I first got it, played around with it plenty! Didn't know that the taser didn't have to be touching you to shock you :)

It was 4-6" above my left thigh. Trying to be cool and show that i can play with the taser so close to myself when ZAP! lol body stiffens real quick. Kind of feels like you're being revived.     ._.        Not painful, not enjoyable, but a 1 second intense feeling. So intense, that you have 2nd thoughts about doing again lol

 

 

I gotta see who I can try this new taser on now.

 

This is an exact model copy I have. Was looking for a pic I had where im shocking my door knob lol, was trying to see if someone grabbing it would get shocked. DIDNT work. well why not? What if i shock one side and grab the oZAP! lol 

This I can say I'd rather not "test" lol

What's the fleshlight? So I can avoid it lol! And btw, I need some blast knuckles now! I'd zap myself... need a few shots in me first, followed by a few violent open handed self administered smacks to my face.This followed by a sissy like scream and a body thump onto some pillows I put there in anticipation.

  Thanks! My gf coulda used an umbrella like that, she's always with the umbrellas... I pop a boonie hat on my head at most and just get wet like a real man! And a ping-pong door? Pretty cool, but the price tag and the fact I know how to work a sheet of thick plywood to do the same keep it out of consideration... but still, an idea worthy of stealing! ):-)  An air hockey door, now that might be something, but then what, 2000 euros? Lol!  Hmm, ok- gonna look for some shit I reviewed all over the place and drop it on the thread.

Cool.. the Shreddies anti fart underwear! Can it be real? I feel I'm taking a foolish risk asking because.. I don't know lol! And durable phones are the only way I'd go. That Nokia would've been on my hit list until I caved and got a smartphone.. which I thought wouldn't be "all that". I'm ruined now. Can't live without it. But, I have a mil-spec ruggedized version. I've already threw it in anger a half dozen times plus numerous drops, forgot in pocket while wading tits high in the surf for 10 minutes..btw, it's a Casio Commado II, previous was the Commando I version. But sometimes I do miss simplicity.

UPDATE 2/17/15: I've now wailed it at things dozens of times more and I'm still using it right now to mention it here. It's so tough I no longer feel reluctant to smack it down in concrete just to show someone how it it bounces. (I get a kick out of seeing them cringe) A lot of guys I work with have'm now and beat the fuck out of them once a month doing reservist duty. No failures yet. Again, it's the Casio Commando II.

KNIFE! Ontario RAT-1 folder with 3.5" blade.

(Best kept secrets in knives: the first of three)

  I like these! Bought two, one in coyote brown and one in olive drab green. It also comes in black to those interested. Blade coating options are from black powder coat or plain brushed satin. Finally, edge choices are partially serrated or straight edge. Personally, I'd go simple, no blade paint to scrape off if you get satin and a straight edge. I opted for satin blades because I can't stand the way the black coating scrapes off the black ones giving you that crappy beat up look. Quality control is great between the two as there was virtually no difference aside from one having a slightly tighter deployment and the other slightly crisper "shlock!" on lockup once whipped open. The liner lock seats securely once deployed and the pivot point consists of bronze washers/bearings. The blades of both RAT-1's rode smoothly and are dead centered when open or closed. Nylon-6 slab handles are great with just the perfect amount of subtle texturing. Perfect for me that is. If you know you'll be using these in wet environments, it may be a bit slick. For the rest of us, aggressive textures can chew up a pocket fast. They arrived with their pocket clips oriented tip down/ RH carry. For me they got it half right. I need tip up! BTW, maybe I'm missing something, but what's the point of carrying tip down? Tip up seems the ONLY way a folder can be removed from the pocket oriented in a way to then be opened and used. Anyway, whatever you like, you got: tip up, down, LH or RH. In correcting the clip I discovered the three small screws holding the clip on are threaded into the steel liners but most notable are NOT ALLEN, they are TORX! If you don't have the T-6 torx bit, go to a hardware store and get one for 50¢. And get a T-10 too while you're at it because that one adjusts the main blade pivot and determines the most important thing, deployment. The T-6 bit also gets used to tighten all ten fasteners that hold the liners together. Top it off with medium strength blue Locktite and you're set. BTW, all fasteners could use a bit of tightening down. All of mine did.

 

  As far as EDC (every day carry) goes, I clipped it on my jeans for a day. I was totally unaware of it and didn't feel its weight even though it's 5 oz. The pocket clip has a gentle half round slope pinch point allowing it to slip out easily, maybe too easily. But its weight and relatively long length should ensure it doesn't "sneak out" on me. We'll see. I'll edit this and tell you if and when it escapes. My current EDC is a Kabar Dozier. Weighs LESS than half of this, 3" blade, holds very securely and has a thinner profile. It will continue to be the best EDC I know of, especially because it's just under $20 and is, like the RAT-1, high quality. However, if you want a bigger, stronger (steel liners, bolted together like a tank) then this RAT-1 is it. As a matter of routine I'll keep the Dozier in my pocket, again, the ultimate default EDC I know of. If I might get dirty, going camping, anything beyond the usual... then the RAT-1 will take its place.

 

  I've only had it a few days (EDIT:a year now, still great) and despite it being easy to open and close, I now have a callous on my right thumb. I just sit here watching TV, opening and closing it. It glides open like it was on liquid ball bearings until I hear the satisfying "shlock" sound of it locking open. It's neither tight nor loose, perfect. It's sort of like a relaxation squeeze ball for deranged persons. Oh, sharpness is scary good. Between the ergonomic fit in the hand and blade edge, you could do surgery with it. Buy it, you'll love it! $24-30 on amazon/ free shipping.

Hehe... Ok, nice catch Luc! I don't think there will be another opportunity this good to bring this up but here goes: The word "its/it's" This is tricky. Normally we use an apostrophe for the possesive and for contractions, but, to differentiate between these two, there is an exception. The contraction (in place of "it is") is "it's" - It's a nice day. The posessive does NOT use the apostrophe! The bird spread its wings. So, there ya go! Haha..

There couldn't have been another opportunity. Lucifer's God. <-- as is?or--> Lucifers' God

 

I never really got down to this. until now. always been a question in my head though. I would use Lucifers' God. I always read " 's " as "is" so didn't seem right to add it

DPMS Oracle AR-15

Even though everyone says this AR-15 sucks, I have yet to have a malfunction with it non ammo related. It doesn't like steel cased Russian surplus ammo, but it eats up brass, stainless and zinc cased ammo like a champ. It is one of my most accurate rifles with iron sights out to 350 yards. Coming in at $750 after taxes and BG check, it is a fine investment that I do not regret. I personally like it better than my high end Noveske.

Awesome man, I've been considering one for a long time. DPMS, Olympic, Bushmaster. I know they're all modular and interchangeable with each other including the Colt M-16 and M4 I've used. Btw, I think the damn Colt is overpriced. Wim, you ever get a stove pipe using brass 55gr M193 or the 62 gr M855 green tip "penetrators"? That's a cunt of a jam but is definitely related to the ammo.

I agree, the Colts are waaay overpriced. I shot a friend's on Sunday actually and it was pretty much the same exact setup as mine, from the barrel specs to the bolt carrier group (edit, his barrel is a 1:7" twist while mine is 1:9", but that isn't even a $10 difference), and I think his was about $250 more. It's still a nice rifle, but that extra $250 is for the Colt name. All of the stovepipes I have had were with the steel cased Brown Bear and Wolf WPA ammo. It would stovepipe and do another malfunction, I don't know what it's called, but the case would expand so much inside the chamber, that the bolt carrier would fly back but the case would stick in the chamber. I would have to get a cleaning rod and gently tap it out. Every round it would do that, but I would switch to brass and it would continue spitting them out, but I guess pretty much all direct impingement AR's have this problem with steel cased ammo (all of my other ones do), while the new piston driven ones don't.

Ha! And piston driven, that's another thing holding me back. In a way I hate the idea of going conventional when I could go with the piston and tune the gas pressure however I want not to mention no longer have exhaust gas blown into the chamber. But of course... That's much more $$$. I figured bynow it would be standardized enough to become priced along with std AR's. They KNOW I want it... That's the problem   I also wish my mini-14 had a tuneable gas port. I shit you not, before I put in an extra heavy recoil spring it would toss brass nearly 20 feet. Now it's more like ten lol.

Yeah it's quite a bit more. They have conversion kits by Adams Arms, CMMG and Osprey, each around $350, I don't know if it's worth it, plus it makes it front heavy. And my AK throws those cases out hard and far, I have a scar on my eyebrow from where one hit me when I first got the rifle, it flings them harder than I can.

It didn't care for you because you're a capitalist! Front heavy and $350 for a retro fit... Yeah, tons of appeal there lol. I figure I'll have to make my move/s this summer before there's another "incident". Then we'd be lucky to get black powder muskets and shit. That's my dismal mentality growing up in this area. Anyway.. time to hit the hay. Gotta be bright eye'd and sharp in the morning ;)

I remember this one from some time back. Wimmig knows a bit about it. It uses a glock 18 slide and barrel which will go full auto and seems....well, I don't know, yeah, it turns into a box and is serious quality knowing magpul but... Think I'd rather just carry the concealed pistol. It's got an application somewhere I'd bet though. EDIT: Forgot about the shoulder stock, this thing is awesome actually. Serious concealed sub gun now!

Bessey knives.

Very sturdy, the blades last for a long time(assuming you're cutting into skin/flesh), I recommend them for cutting in skin and flesh!
