by Chris Grech

Class D compliant for global use, the new B&G V50 VHF offers an integrated dual channel AIS receiver, allowing AIS reception and VHF use via just one antenna. In areas such as busy shipping lanes or bustling harbors, the V50 gives captains the ability to see, hear and be heard for increased safety. Plug and play compatible with Zeus Touch, the B&G V50 will display other vessels' distress calls on the chartplotter screen. The V50 AIS/VHF radio has dedicated weather, menu and channel keys, separate volume and squelch knobs, and a Distress button, an ergonomic fist microphone, selectable Dual and TriWatch modes and a large internal speaker for clear audio. Waterproof to the JIS-7 standard, the V50's additional features include the ability store up to 20 contacts with MMSI details directly onto the VHF and TrackYourBuddyâ„¢, which connects VHF DSC position polling with the Zeus and Zeus Touch to show the location of up to three captains on the chart display. Designed as a powerful and compact handheld solution, the innovative H50 remote handset is the perfect companion for the V50. Waterproof to the IPx7 standard, the H50 is energy efficient and always ready to use. The unit has an 8-hour battery life and charges wirelessly via a unique induction plate on the back of the device. The B&G H50 has an impressive range from the VHF base and can act as an intercom between another H50 unit or the V50 base station for seamless crew to navigator communication. Perfect for hands-free use the H50 also has a headphone jack and a belt clip.

Wiley X WX Rush Sunglasses

by Chris Grech

As a member of Wiley X's popular Active Series, the WX Rush features a wraparound-style frame with a soft rubber nose pad and temple grips for a comfortable, secure fit, even when the fishing action gets hot and heavy. The WX Rush is ideal for casual anglers and weekend warriors alike, matching a Gloss Black frame with Polarized Blue Mirror Lenses. These lenses feature Wiley X's proven Filter 8â„¢ polarizing technology that eliminates glare and helps fishermen see underwater structure, schools of bait and suspended fish. Wiley X's versatile Green lens base tint is effective under a wide range of light conditions, especially those found in fishing environments. Anglers need protection, as well, and Wiley X has built its reputation by delivering this in some of the most challenging conditions on Earth. Not only do Wiley X glasses protect angler's eyes against the harmful rays of the sun, they provide state of-the-art protection against a wide range of hazards encountered on the water. Every day, anglers face danger from flying lures and airborne debris, whether they're fishing or racing across the water to the next spot. Every pair of Wiley X sunglasses meets stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing OSHA-grade protection for anglers, every time they hit the water. Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of vision protection in every pair of glasses it makes. This proven protection is a key reason why Wiley X has long been a leading provider of protective eyewear to the U.S. military, law enforcement and other tactical users. Like many Wiley X sunglass styles, the WX Rush is also RX-ready, making it a perfect choice for anglers who wear corrective lenses. The WX Rush with prescription lenses gives serious anglers a comfortable, no-compromise solution that will help them see better and fish with confidence from dawn to dusk.
