June 2010 Waterfowl Gear Guide


On the water

With the summer months around the corner and temperatures on the rise, most outdoor enthusiasts are thinking about spending time on the water. The June Gear Guide offers some unique products that will make for a more productive, enjoyable summer on the water. They may come in handy when duck season rolls around too!

Styx-River Camouflage Neo-Mats

Neo-Mats are one of the best and most functional boat accessories developed in years. Created to provide a tough-yet-cushioned surface, Neo-Mats not only protect your boat's finish, but also reduce the noise of aluminum boats—essential for hunters and fishermen.

Styx-River Camouflage Neo-MatsThese neoprene-backed mats require no adhesive, absorb less than 5 percent of their own weight in water and are customized to fit the floors, front decks, rear decks and boxes of Triton, War Eagle and Xpress aluminum boat lines. Neo-Mats are available in six different camouflage patterns, which vary based on the brand of boat you own. Neo-Mats look great in solid-color boats as well!

Whether you are pleasure riding, fishing or duck hunting, you will add life to your boat and make your overall boating experience more comfortable and enjoyable with Neo-Mats.
