Sound gear fan too. Trying to put something in my ear at the shot doesn't work for my style of hunting. Always struggled with the price. Went on sale for $100 off plus a case of batteries. Wow. Wish I'd have bought sooner. They are truly amazing!
I always use the orange sleeves, and never put them anywhere except in the case, or in my ears.I use Soundgear from this site. Very effective but I always worry I will lose them. It seems most of these in ear plugs do not have any type of retaining strap. I worry about losing the $300 plugs. I would really worry about losing the custom $2000 plugs.
Anybody have a solution?
Most of my varmint hunting friends just use a set of Howard Leight plugs on the plastic ring setup. Putting them on before shooting since you have time.
I have been using the same ones for years with good results, don't even notice them on your neck when hunting.I have tried a ton of different ear protection. These have turned into my go to:
Howard Leight by Honeywell Quiet Band Shooting Earplugs 3 Pairs, (Contains 3 Single Bags, Plus 3 Extra Pairs for Replacement) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FB25RF9/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_amfYEbNMB975W
I use the Sound Gear(SG) but these Axil's seem to solve some of the short comings of the SG. On/Off switch, volume control, rechargeable battery, once the SG's hearing aid batteries are used (opened) they continue to drain whether using them or not, and the " lanyard" to keep from losing them. I haven't lost a SG plug yet, but if one did fall out I doubt I would notice.axil GS extreme, these work, no more ear muffs.
Rharfo, I have not experienced any hum. They have worked fine for me. I started with the GS Electronic (no BT) and now the GE Extremes. I like the long battery life as well. Hope this helps.Reviews say they have a hum sound when used in the sound amplified setting...how are yours?
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
