Serious anglers and outdoors enthusiasts know with fishing, time of day can be everything. Costa Sunglasses introduces its high contrast specialty 580P™ sunrise lens - a lightweight, impact resistant lens that allows maximum light transmission and enhanced depth perception to cut glare and allow anglers to see through the water more clearly in the early morning or late afternoon prime fishing hours, when outside light is low.
Costas 100 percent polarized 580 lenses block yellow light from entering the eye, creating razor sharp color enhancement and superior visual acuity. In addition to the new sunrise lens option, other 580 lens color options include gray, copper, amber, blue mirror, green mirror and silver mirror.
"Just like different flies work to catch different fish, different lens colors work best when suited to the appropriate light conditions," said Chas MacDonald, president of Costa Sunglasses. "The sunrise lens gives anglers who are up before the dawn and out at dusk an edge to spot the fish more clearly when the light levels are lower."
Different lens colors vary the amount of light allowed into the eye. Costas 580 gray lens, for example, blocks the most light, so its suitable for bright, sunny conditions such as during offshore fishing. Copper or amber-based lenses allow slightly more light in, ideal for making out shapes and contrasts below murky lake or river water. The new 580P sunrise lens lets in the most light possible for anglers to spot fish more clearly during early morning or dusk hours when sunlight wanes.
The 580P sunrise lens is available in some of Costas most popular performance sunglasses, including Corbina, Fisch, Fathom, Hammerhead, Jose, Zane and others. Frame color options include black or tortoise. Costa styles with the new 580P sunrise lens start at $159.

Aimpoint Hunter Series
The Aimpoint H34S is a lightweight, non-magnified sight for use on rifles and shotguns, which allows hunters to get on target faster and more accurately than with magnified optics or iron sights. This product offers a 34mm tube diameter with a 47mm objective lens to provide enhanced optical performance, and utilizes a single 2 MOA red-dot reticule that makes fast shots in any weather or lighting conditions easier to manage. The H34S weighs only 9oz, is fully waterproof, offers twelve manual brightness settings, and provides up to 50,000 hours (over 5 years) of battery life using a single battery.
It has been 20 years since The LensPen Group introduced the original LensPen, and for a generation photographers and outdoor enthusiasts have counted on LensPen to keep their cameras, scopes, binoculars and other fine optics clean and images sharp.
As digital replaced film, models specifically designed to clean LCD screens, compact camera lenses, viewfinders and filters were added to the product line. And now these five LensPen models - Original™, DigiKlear, MiniPro,MicroPro and FilterKlear - feature a stylish new design and state-of-the-art packaging. A completely new look, but with the same unmatched features that have made LensPen an optics necessity, not just an accessory.
Theyre completely safe for all lens, filter and screen surfaces. The secret to LensPens unique cleaning ability and amazing long life - more than 500 cleanings - is found in its special carbon compound. Carbons grease-cutting properties remove fingerprints from optics safely and effectively. The carbon compound found in LensPen products is similar to the one used in printers ink; the reason why newspapers have long been an effective way to clean windows and mirrors. Before putting the carbon to work, use the retractable natural brush to remove any loose dust from the lens surface.
"There are never any messy liquids to spray on and then wipe off, and theres no need for dirty optical tissues or microfiber cloths, that often do nothing more than smear the fingerprint oil around," said Peter Meurrens, Vice President of Operations at the LensPen Group.
"Try it once and join the millions of already satisfied LensPen customers who know that nothing cleans like a LensPen," Meurrens said. "Not really so surprising for those that know us because at LensPen we focus all our energy on one little problem that everyone else seems to ignore: how to clean fingerprints!"
LensPen products are available on Amazon, Best Buy and other fine retailers. For more information on LensPen products, go to www.lenspen.com.

New for 2012, Winchester Ammunition is creating excitement among hog hunters from the California coast to the swamps of Florida with the launch of Razorback XT - the worlds first specialized cartridge specifically designed for wild hog hunting.
"Razorback XT is our response to the rising popularity of hog hunting and the necessity to control wild hogs where they are a nuisance," said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing and sales. "Hunters need a cartridge that can drive through thick hide and bone for quick, ethical harvest shots on the toughest wild boars and Razorback XT will get the job done, shot after shot."
The Razorback XT lead-free bullet has a beveled profile and is made of solid gilding metal with a hollow point for delayed expansion on extremely tough wild hogs. Flash suppressed powders make Razorback XT perfect for use in low light or after dark with night vision technology. Initially, Razorback XT will be produced in two of the most popular hog hunting calibers - .223 Rem and .308 Win. Razorback XT is designed for use in bolt-action rifles as well as modern sporting rifles like the AR-10 and AR-15.
