    i got a winchester(?) light at wal-mart for blood trails and it sucked and then just quit working and had never been dropped, so after 3 new ones and the same problem, i decided ..gimmick:frusty:


    then there is probably about anything they sell on tv...:doh:

    Sights made of plastic. Wrist strap caliper releases. Sight lights. Drop away rests with a cord attachment. Lots of camo clothes. Cheap hunting boots. The list can go on and on.

    I know I am not wasting any money on any chewing gum. If they are close enough to smell my breath then I suspect they will already have an arrow thru-em.

    One of those little flashlights that you crank for power. Not very bright and didn't work long, at least it didn't cost me anything, I got it as a gift. Another gift, a pair of gaiters [sp?] to keep snow out of my boots. They were camo but too noisy to hunt with. Most everything gotten for hunting as a gift from non hunters. I just ask for cash now, I'm not offended and don't have to act like I appreciate another useless gift.:tape:

    Can't really think of anything(although i'm sure i have here and there)cause i try not to buy into what i concider a "fad".I don't concider it a gimmick...but i'd like to have some of the money back that i figure i wasted on :tape: carbon arrows over the past 3 years trying to find 6 that would all fly the same...i know they've gotten better but not enough to convince me to mess with them again.
