Strikemaster Hard Water Wear

6 posts in this topic

Do any of you have any of this stuff from S.M. I was just looking at it on thier HSOforum and thought that it looked pretty reasonably priced, I don't recall if anyone has ever mentioned owning either the bibs or the polar parka. Any comments or reviews would be appreciated. Thanks

I have the parka (I got it about halfway through last season) and I like it. It keeps me warm, and there are many pockets for anything and everything both inside and out.

I have both the jacket and bibs. For the price, they are an excellent suit. Very warm and tons of places to put jig boxes and extra gear. Also a very comfortable suit...

are they the only one's that carry it or do other retailers carry their suits as well?

I own the vexilar suit and the S.M. Won the S.M. in a Ice tourney last year and I'd have to say i prefer the S.M. keeps you a little warmer around the neck and face, and like Matt said, its got all kinds of great pockets for tackle boxes.

I bought myself the parka last March on sale for $89 at L&M Fleet Supply. I love it, now I have to get the bibs to go with it. I am not sure if my camo bibs would look too styling with the red and black parka. I think a lot of the places that carry the auger also carry the hard water wear. Check at Glen's Army Navy site, on sale.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
