Now available in 100- and 125-grain models, Sever’s Titanium 2.1 will make dad even more deadly in the fall woods. Designed to carve devastating wound channels and penetrate like crazy, the Titanium 2.1 features Lock-and-Pivot Blades. This patented system keeps the blades fully contained in the ferrule, and upon impact, locks them open. The open blades can then pivot around bone, reducing deflection even on steep quartering shots. Practice Mode allows dad the ability to practice with the same head he will hunt with. All that’s required is the addition of a second screw into the ferrule. Each head comes with the necessary screw. MSRP: $13.99 per head.
Hunter Safety System Pro Series with ElimiShield Vest
Keep dad safe from the ground up with the Pro Series Vest from Hunter Safety System. An upgrade from previous HSS vest models, the Pro Series is treated with ElimiShield Hunt Scent Control Technology — a technology engineered to kill human odor before it starts to form on the harness. Now, dad can stay safe and fly under the olfactory system of those big bucks he loves to chase. The vest is also 40 percent lighter than previous models via lightweight fabrics and ventilating mesh. MSRP: $139.95.
Spot Hogg Fast Eddie XL
Built like a tank and designed for precision accuracy, Spot Hogg’s Fast Eddie XL showcases a newly designed six-inch dovetail bar and bow mount. Hardened Rail Technology means no slop or buzz, and the yardage dial features an improved grip, meaning dad can dial in the distance between him and his quarry in a hurry. Toolless adjustment boosts sight-in time and micro-adjust second and third axis settings allow for precision tuning. The new MRT (Multi-Ring Technology) Pin Guard ensures proper peep-to-sight alignment regardless of the lighting conditions. Available pin options include single, double, three-pin, five-pin and seven-pin. MSRP: $289.99.
TightSpot Rise Arrow Quiver
Designed to fit tight to dad’s bow for better balance and ensure a “quick draw”. If that first arrow is off the mark, the Rise from TightSpot holds arrows tight regardless of diameter. Engineered for treestand use, the Rise is four inches shorter than standard TightSpot models and features a loop on the hood for easy hanging. The Rise tips the scales at 11 ounces and is available in Matte Black, Kuiu Verde 2.0, Optifade Elevated II, Optifade SubAlpine, Realtree Edge, and Lost Camo XD hood options. MSRP: $177.95.
QAD Integrate MXT
The last drop-away rest dad will ever need; QAD’s Integrate MXT features micro-adjust (.019” per click) windage and elevation adjustments and weighs a mere 2.9 ounces. Sleek and stylish, the MXT is offered in an array of solid and camo color options and features QAD’s legendary Anti-Backlash Technology and Lock-Down Technology, which prevents bounce back and promotes total fletch clearance. The launcher arm drops only when the bow is fired, not when letdown and the rest has been tested at over 400 fps. MSRP: $234.95-$258.95.
Easton Archery FMJ Taper T64
If dad’s an Easton FMJ fan, why not add to his collection with Easton’s latest incarnation in the Full Metal Jacket line. Though a tad on the pricy side, the all-new FMJ Taper T64’s promise increased downrange accuracy and penetration, and dad is sure to like that combo. The shaft begins at a 6MM diameter on the insert end and then tapers to 4MM on the nock end. This build boosts FOC (Front of Center) up to 30 percent, and because the 4MM nock end can track behind the 6MM insert end, friction is reduced. Reduced friction leads to more pass-throughs on game animals. The T64’s are available in a pair of deflection sizes that cover spine sizes from 400 to 300 and shaft lengths from 26 to 32 inches. MSRP: $299 per dozen.
Prime Logic CT5
Give dad the ultimate surprise this Father’s Day by dropping some coin on a new vertical assassin. Measuring 35 inches between the axles, Prime’s new-for-2019 Logic CT5 is a balanced tack driver capable of spitting arrows downrange at an impressive 340 fps. Ready for the woods and the competition trail, the CT5 boasts a 6-inch brace height and is branded with a fighting weight of 4.5 pounds. The integrated Swerve in the upper and lower part of the riser add an element of stiffness and reduce variations in nock travel. Eliminating cam lean and boosting accuracy are Prime’s Parallel TRM Cams. Available in peak draw weights of 40, 50, 60, 65, 70 and 80 pounds and draw lengths between 24.5 and 30 inches, this stylish rig will make for an unforgettable Dad’s Day.
T.R.U. Ball The Goat
Inspired by champion shooter Rio Wilde, T.R.U. Ball’s GOAT blends two popular methods of activation into one release. In just three easy steps, dad can switch between thumb-activation and true hinge-style operation. The Goat comes with a half nickel-plated brass aluminum tapered handle and articulating finger pieces to allow for three or four finger configuration. When set in the hinge mode, the GOAT is set with a medium click, but a no-click option can be achieved by simply flipping the sear 180 degrees. MSRP: $289.99
