Verispellis Skis

Occasionally I accept a sponsored post to help support this blog. I am always careful to make sure it is a product or service that I find exciting and I believe will be helpful. I turn down dozens of sponsored posts for every one I accept. That being said, I was recently approached by Verispellis Skis. They wanted me to write a post about their new skis and the Kickstarter they are running right now.

I love technology, but only when it actually has a function. I don’t understand why everything needs a touch screen or a battery. However, when someone figures out how to add technology to a simple object, and make it better, I get excited. The technology that they have put in Verispellis Skis is not only supper cool; it actually performs a valuable function.



I am getting ahead of myself. Let’s talk about what these skis are and what they do.

 Verispellis Skis (https://www.verispellis.com/) allow you to change the stiffness of your skis, on the fly, from your smartphone. Now it does not do this via some complex mechanism or easy to break system. It uses (get this!) a shape shifting metal called Nitinol! How cool is that! It sounds like something out of science fiction!

Nitinol is an alloy that changes its material properties with changes in the temperature. At normal, cool temperatures, it is flexible. This would be the standard ski stiffness defined primarily by regular skis made out of wood or fiberglass. When warmed up, the skis become stiffer. You can adjust this stiffness to your preference.

Now, if you are skiing and the environment changes you can adjust accordingly, instead of struggling. It is like having several sets of skis, all wrapped into one!



So, how does the nitinol get warmed up? Good question, with a super simple answer. Built into the skis is a battery. When you want your skis to be stiffer, the battery heats up an element. This element heats up the Nitinol. Not only is this simple, and sturdy (no moving parts to break!) it allows for a ton of customization!

Want just the shovel or the tail stiffened? You can direct heat to just those areas, making only them stiff. The possibilities for customization are endless.

The only question left is how do you adjust them? And no! They don’t have a touch screen, but you will use one! You control all these functions from a smart phone app via Bluetooth. This is a proven and reliable technology. From your smartphone, you can make custom adjustments, or set it to let the app select the stiffness based on the conditions and your style.



Right now, you can find out more and order these skis from their Kickstarter. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1165593069/verispellis-skis?ref=df3vux

For those of you who might not know, Kickstarter is a site that allows entrepreneurs to raise money for their projects via crowd funding. Think of crowdfunding as micro investments via regular people like you or me. As a reward for your investment, the entrepreneur gives you something, usually the product, when their idea comes to fruition. Like all investments, there is the potential for loss. However, I have backed many Kickstarter products and have always been rewarded. In fact, I have run a successful Kickstarter campaign myself. It is a great way to get in on new stuff before anyone else has the chance.

I highly recommend checking out these skis! If nothing else, their technology is impressive. It would not surprise me if they become the standard for skis in the future!

Choosing Between a Crossbow and a Compound Bow



Before we get too far into this, be sure to check out this site for great crossbow reviews: http://bowauthority.com/best-crossbow/. You will be glad you did!

As my longtime readers know, I am an avid user and proponent of crossbows. I like them for a lot of reasons and decided long ago that I would focus my energy on learning and using a crossbow instead of a traditional bow. This decision did not come lightly and took several years to come to. Now, do I think crossbows are for everyone? No, of course not, everyone needs to come to that conclusion on their own.




That is why I am writing this, to help you decide which you would rather use, a crossbow, traditional bow, or neither (a very reasonable choice).

If you are like me, you started hunting with a traditional, centerfire hunting rifle. You probably hunted for several successful seasons with a rifle. After a few years you decided to branch out to muzzleloading. For me, this choice was made because the muzzleloading season is longer in my state, starts earlier, and does not require blaze orange. With the advances of muzzleloaders, they are just as accurate and powerful as traditional rifles out past 100 yards. So, the jump just makes sense. Muzzleloading has become my favorite form of hunting.



Soon after starting to hunt with a muzzleloader, I discovered that the game is much more plentiful early in the season. Why not extend the season even further with archery?

Then came the big decision: Crossbow or Compound bow? I knew from the get go I did not want to fool with a recurve or longbow. Although I GREATLY respect those that do!

Now, there are a ton of pro’s and con’s to both Crossbows and Compound bows. It is not an easy decision.

First, lets test your ideology. Why are you bow hunting? Is it for the challenge? Do you crave the satisfaction of hundreds of hours of practice paying off?

If you answered “yes” to these two questions then you might be leaning towards the compound bow. They require more skill to use. There is no doubt. During the hunt there is a lot that can go wrong when using a compound. One of the hardest things is that you have to draw without the game seeing movement. It also takes months of practice to consistently hit the vitals of a deer at 30 yards. Do you have time to devote 30 minutes a day for practice? Do you enjoy repetitive archery practice? If yes, then a compound is for you!



However, are you hunting for meat or simply to extend the season? Do you get your satisfaction from a clean kill? Do you not have time to learn a new skill?

If you answered yes to these questions, then a crossbow might be for you. There is no doubt that they are easier to use. Out of the box, I was shooting 1-inch groups at 30 yards after less than an hours practice. This ease of use means you have less chance to wound an animal. I know several hunters that gave up on bow hunting after terribly wounding an animal due to a poor shot. There is no drawing, you simply aim and shoot. The crossbow arrows (called bolts) are even shorter, making them easier to carry!

I chose a crossbow because I did not believe I could consistently make a clean kill with a compound. A clean kill this the most important thing to me.

After the ideology, it comes down to practicality. So here are some pro’s and con’s to each:

Crossbows take a long time to load while a follow-up shot from a compound can be made quickly.

Crossbows are usually louder than compounds.

Compounds usually have a little more range for the very experienced archer.

Crossbows are usually heavier.

Compounds require more accessories (release, sights, and other doo-dads) that can break, get lost, or get hung up in brush.

Compounds are safer (sometimes). Many people leave their crossbow loaded when climbing a stand or walking around. This is not super safe.

You have to unload a crossbow if you do not shoot it. This is one of the biggest headaches for me. I usually use an old, sacrificial bolt.

Lastly, the biggest questions of them all is should you use a bow at all? It is harder than you think. I had a trophy buck within 20 yards of my stand once. He stood behind a clump of grass for 20 infuriating minutes eating. If it were gun season, I would have put him down, but because I had a bow, I could not risk shooting through some grass. Arrows do strange things when they hit the smallest things. Tracking animals hit with an arrow is a skill in itself and loosing kills is not uncommon.

In the end, it is up to you and what your priorities are. Now go out there and make your decision!
