Another year over? A new one just beginning. 2015 saw us review a substantially greater number of products than last year, which makes the five that made this year's Products of the Year cut that much more special. We give a tip of the cap and a toast of the glass to Cordskinz, JUGS Sports Triple Play, Old Hickory Bats, The Eye Coach and Golf Swing Right Now.
Thanks to all of the great products and companies that reached out to us this year and we look forward to bringing you many more new and innovative products in 2016. Happy New Year!

So you're looking for a protein supplement, but you're the type of person who only shops at Whole Foods. Or you are in need of a supplement but you really would like it to taste great. Or you're searching for a protein powder and you need results fast. No matter the scenario, you're in for a treat when you try Earth's Whey.
Many protein supplements taste nasty. Earth's Whey sent us a few sample packets of their powder to try. They were far and away the best we've ever tasted. But for serious training that's not enough. Which is ironic. Because the taste of Earth's Whey is just the icing on the cake. It's the science inside that make this the one you'll want to choose. And yeah, did we mention, it tastes unbelievably good too.
Earth’s Whey has only three pure, raw ingredients: “Bio-Alive” Grass Pasture Whey Protein concentrate, raw, truly all-natural flavors and raw stevia leaf. That's it. It comes from grass pasture Amish dairy cow milk and has zero sugar added. If you're going to be putting something in your body, that sounds pretty safe. Check the label of other whey protein and you may see things such as, Protein Isolates, Ion Exchange, Isolated Whey Peptides, Protein Hydrozylates, Predigested Whey Proteins, Protein Blends, Standard Protein Concentrates, or Natural-Based Protein Concentrates. Yummy!
The “Bio-Alive” Grass Pasture whey protein used in Earth’s Whey is a specialized concentrate, completely unique to other whey proteins on the market. Its quite simply the cleanest, purest and most powerful protein in existence. Other products are harshly processed to save money, even when they may claim to be “cold-processed” or “un-denatured.” If milk is not grass pasture and non-homogenized, and is grain-fed, overheated, overcrowded and contaminated with toxic chemicals, pesticides, artificial hormones, GMO substances, etc… then regardless of processing, the whey protein powder ends up compromised. Other protein manufacturers use heat processing which damages the critically valuable antioxidants, proteins, enzymes, immunoglobulins and other vital nutrients, removing so much of the “life” of the protein.
If you feel like you just had a science lesson, good. Because hopefully you learned that Earth's Whey is the best way. If you're looking to add a supplement, you must be trying to improve your health. And if you're that type of person you'll agree that finding the healthiest option is definitely the “whey” to go.
There's a great new way to be entertained at the beach, lake or pool. If you spend any time near the water, go to Ripper Ball.com and spend a few bucks. You'll get your money's worth the first time you play with it.
What is, “it”? Water Ripper looks and feels just like a HackySack toy. But this one is amphibious. Essentially it is a fun little ball that will float, skip, hop and ski across the top of any water surface. It takes water play to a whole new and exciting level.
They sent us a few to try and we tested them in a backyard pool. It skips like a rock but you catch it like a bag. When my kids were young we always took things like tennis balls to pools or the ocean. The problem with those is that if you missed a throw and took a shot to the nose, it was no fun. And if the ball got away it would roll forever and we always worried about it conking someone innocent. Also no fun. The water ripper won't leave a mark. It's harmless. And because it is a beanbag, if it gets tossed out of the pool it stays pretty much put, which means more water time, less time running and reaching under someone's deck chair.
There are so many things you can do with it. Try water bowling or soccer. Have skip contests, keep track of consecutive catch rallies. Bury buckets in the sand and roll or kick it in like golf. Do tricks like you would with a frisbee or play keep away. See who can skip it the longest or, at the ocean, who can get the most air on a skip off a wave. Develop your catching and throwing skills in a safe and entertaining way. Surfers, paddlers, boaters, floaters, swimmers of all ages will have hours of fun The possibilities really are endless.
When you pack your beach bag, right there next to the paddle game, water football, bucket and shovel, needs to be a couple Water Rippers. Once you start skipping it around, you'll never want to put it down.

You've got pride in your school, true school spirit, right? What would you say if we showed you how you could create sharp, eye-catching shorts, T's, jackets, sheatshirts -- virtually anything you can imagine wearing, with your school's name and in your school's colors...for free?
There is an ingenious and user-friendly website manned by the folks at Ares Sportswear that does just that. Anyone from an individual user to a school athletic department can quickly access the site and design away. A school or team can use it to quickly create an entire store stocked with everything anyone might want, add a little mark-up on each item, and use it as a fundraiser.
Coaches love Ares Team Store because now, instead of having to order team apparel, collect checks, do sizing, receive orders, take care of handing them out, misfits, etc. they can simply direct their team to the store they've created and everyone will be able to order what is required and have it shipped directly to them. Coaches can get on with the job of coaching, not stocking a retail clothing store out of the back of their car.
Even an individual can order an item. See a cool jacket or hoodie that no one else has? Want to wear it to school and get everyone to ask where you got it? Let your imagination go wild!
Ares does quality work with professional customer service at terrific prices. They've built their business on the satisfaction of the thousands of organizations they've benefitted. Its true what you wear says a lot about you. Ares wants to help you say it in style.
