Exotac has made basically every accessory that has to do with fire: flint and steel, tinder kits, storm matches and many other items. At SHOT Show 2019, Exotac announced that they are branching out into other areas by launching the RipSPOOL. This new product is survival-focused with features that will help a person out in a pinch.
The RipSPOOL is small, easily fitting in a pocket or hanging from a keychain. The purpose of this product is to provide survival tools that can be kept on the person conveniently and at all times. Included in the RipSPOOL is 50 feet of duct tape, 60 feet of 30-pound test braided fishing line, a #16 sail needle and a 550 Firecord lanyard that can be used as tinder or in a field repair. This product also has a hollow waterproof vessel on the inside that can be used to store any number of things.
The RipSPOOL only weighs 4-5 ounces and can be used in a pinch in many ways. You can use the needle as a compass if you were to keep a small piece of cork and a magnet in the inside. All you would have to do is open it up, magnetize the needle and float it on some water using the cork. Also, a person could keep a small hook and weight on the inside and use the RipSPOOL for fishing in a tight pinch.
Basically, the uses of Exotac’s RipSPOOL are endless as well as customizable by the end user. Things can go South no matter where you are, whether it is at home, hunting, fishing, hiking or during any other activity. In a situation where SHTF, I would want this product on me so I could make it through in the best possible way with some equipment to make life easier.
