Bushnell Pro X3+

If your dad likes to golf, help him improve his game (or at least his confidence) with Bushnell’s latest rangefinder. The Pro X3+ is one of the most powerful, precise laser rangefinder to date. The Pro X3+ not only has all of the features we’ve come to love in a Bushnell rangefinder, but it now shows wind speed and direction in the display as well. This added feature will provide golfers an added layer of confidence to determine how the wind conditions will affect their shot at any given moment. The patented PinSeeker with Visual JOLT technology makes it easy to target the pin to ensure you are getting the proper distance with a vibrating assurance. There’s a 7x magnification, bluetooth connectivity to Bushnell Golf Mobile App, rubber armored metal housing with IPX7 waterproof, and an integrated BITE magnetic cart mount that makes it easy to access throughout your game. If you want to use it during a tournament, there is a locking slope-switch that significantly reduces risk of accidentally getting the Pro X3+ into Slope mode during play.

Skullcandy Barrel Speaker

For the father’s that love their music, the Barrel speaker from Skullcandy is an excellent choice. This is a full-frequency Bluetooth speaker with bright highs, rich mids and deep, punchy bass. Barrel has the portability to bring anywhere and enough range to handle a house party or a beach party thanks to the water-resistant construction. You can even link multiple speakers with the Skullcandy Multi-Link and enjoy the integrated LED light show that dances to the beat. One of my favorite features is the Bass Boost. You can turn this mode on and off by holding the “play” button down for 2 seconds. After all… it’s all about that bass.

Cardo Packtalk Edge

We’ve been reviewing Cardo systems for a few years now and each year they improve their design and capabilities. The Packtalk Edge is just another example of good design mixed with functional applications that make it a leading system in motorcycle communications.

Key Features:

  • Universal Compatibility
  • Dynamic Mesh Communication
  • Live Intercom
  • Waterproof
  • FM Radio
  • JBL Speakers
  • 2 Channels (Mobile and GPS)
  • Bluetooth 5.2
  • Automatic Volume Control
  • Voice Control
  • Air Mount
  • 13 hour talk time (2 hour full charge)

One of the most noticeable changes in this model is the Air Mount design. It’s incredibly simple, very secure, and takes a second to install. The first time I placed the Cardo Edge in the mount it actually surprised me. The magnetic pull was so strong in snapped right out of my fingers and fell securely into the mount. Like other Cardo systems, the initial installation is the same. The JBL speakers and microphone come with adhesives to place on the inside. The speakers tuck away nicely behind the ear pad and the wires can be run between the lining of the helmet and the shell so everything is hidden. Once everything is in place, just slap the Cardo mount on the side and you are good to go. Takes less than 10 minutes to install thanks to the clever design, so your dad can be out riding in no time.

Traeger Flatrock Flat Top Grill

It wouldn’t be a true Father’s Day gift guide without a grill shoutout, and one of this year’s pick is the Traeger Flatrock. The Traeger team went all-in on their first flat top grill, delivering the quality you’ve come to expect from Traeger with the versatility of 3-meal cooking. There are so many features that set Flatrock apart from its competition, but there are a few features that really stand out. The first is the burner setup – with 3 U-shaped burners and heat shields between each burner, the Flatrock is the only flat top on the market to allow for true temperature control in each of the 3 cook zones. The second is the electronic add-ons that always level Trager up. If you plug the Traeger into a wall outlet, you can monitor propane levels and have an easy visual indicator of lit burners – a super nice touch! The final is the overall build quality. The Flatrock is a beast (in the nicest way possible) – it is certainly not your portable camp grill… it is heavy, sturdy, and truly built to last. Everything from the knobs to the lid, to the folding side tables and the cooking surface itself. They are all heavy-duty.
