I received this product for free, the review and opinions are my own. Now my kids love electronics. When my daughter saw this product come in, she opened it and set it up herself. she is nine and decided she liked the VTech InnoTab Max immediately. She was happy about the free app and unhappy that you have to pay for a bunch of other apps. My daughter knows she has to go through her mother to get apps and loves to get them free herself. It didn't take Khloe long to get past this fact and find out she can do her I-Ready homework right through this tablet. The tablet is colorful, fun and sturdy. I can see that this tab may be a little cheaply made for a smaller child. For my daughter, it is perfect because she has gone through the breaking stage and is ready to take care of things. My daughter said she will give this tab  to her cousin when and if she finally gets bored with it. Then we will find out how well it holds up to a smaller/rougher child. I think it may be suited for the older end child than a much younger child because I know my daughter would have destroyed this if she was three years old.

New Body Armor Provides an Alternative for Civilians and Police Alike

Many people today are looking to protect themselves by carrying a firearm. While those people may be justified in their fear and in their desire to be protected, there are other options that might work for them. Specifically, a number of different companies are coming up with point blank body armor that is better than ever. In the past, this sort of gear was available only to people in the military and those in the police force. This is slowly but surely changing. Today's armor provides the protection that people want and can even be an alternative to carrying a weapon. 

What makes new body armor better than its been in the past? One reason is the high level of protection that new material provides. New body armor is made in such a way that it can withstand far more force than ever in the past. For instance, it can withstand bullets flying from more powerful weapons and bullets fired at close range. This certainly beats the armor of the past, which has never been reliable for people who wanted to protect themselves from truly high-powered weapons. 

In addition, the new body armor is much lighter than stuff in the past. In the past, people wearing armor would run into problems because of just how heavy it was. They couldn't wear it for long, and if they had to travel any distance, it would become an impediment. However, the new stuff is made with material that's extremely light. Police have long been able to access this sort of gear. It's only recently become more readily available for the everyday person. 

The person who wants to protect himself has a few options in today's world. He can certainly choose to carry a weapon. He can also choose to defend himself with great body armor that can protect him in case the gun doesn't do the trick. Police and military members have known for years that body armor is a necessary force when one might be facing gun fire. It's now time for the average citizen to recognize that having body armor can be perhaps a better defense against a gun crime than having a gun of one's own.

MadBite Fish Scales Various Multi-Purpose Digital and Mechanical Hanging Fish Scales With or Without Tape Measure Review

So everybody knows, this is how my reviews work. I will copy information about the product from Amazon, so you get the information from the companies own mouth about the product I will add a picture, then I will give you an opinion about the product in my own words. I think it is important to have the information from the company and an unbiased opinion, so you know the most about each particular product.

  • This Scale with measuring tape weighs fish to 55 Lbs. .
  • It's large easy to read dial and drop down tape measure allows you to measure fish to 38 "/100cm.
  • Easily stowed away in your tackle box, or hung on your boat by the attached sturdy ergonomic handle the KastKing scale and tape measure is an affordable way of backing up your fish stories.
  • The rear calibration knob allows you to set the weight at zero before each use. Simple sturdy construction allows for years of use.
  • Similar to scales offered by Berkley , Eagle Claw and Mustad but at a much more affordable cost.

The scale actually comes with the two triple A batteries that makes it work. I like the tape measure because you can see how long and how much your fish weighs. It's water resistant and works great. This is a must tool to bring with you, especially if you are with a friend and your competing to see who actually catches the biggest and heaviest fish. This one measures up to 55 pounds which is perfect to your average fisherman like me and my friends. Look forward to the cooler weather and catching more fish and using this scale much more.
