This completely revamped Thermacell design allows for better airflow in an upright position. It will emit a more effective zone of protection if attached to your belt than the previous Thermacells. The ignition switch is 50 to 80 percent quieter. Every unit comes with a belt clip for easy access and storage. Also, the indicator light will illuminate when the unit has reached the appropriate temperature to emit the zone of protection. This lets you know when the unit is not at the correct temperature rather than you being attacked by mosquitoes. The MR450 uses the same mats and butane cartridges as other Thermacells.

Wac’Em Broadheads New Steel Expandable
Each Wac’Em expandable broadhead is engineered to the tightest tolerances and promises efficiency. Using the same cut-on-impact tip design as the Wac’Em fixed blade, the tip on the expandable blade splits the hide on impact, but its blades don’t deploy until half of the broadhead body has penetrated the hide. This unique blade design prevents the Wac’Em expandable from losing kinetic energy in flight and gives it a similar entrance hole to a cut-on-contact fixed blade, while allowing it to get a pass-through in almost every situation. The Wac’Em expandable creates giant wound channels and exit holes, allowing for much better blood trails. This results in easier tracking. The Wac’Em American-forged steel expandable broadhead will be available in a big 1.5-inch cut in a 2-blade and a 3-blade version, all in 100-grain weights. See www.wacemarchery.com.
