Swap Out



Rating: 10/10 Comfort and Versatile.

As lanyards start to take a positive ascent in the world of game call accessories, one great manufacture continues to stay ahead of the game.  Heavy Hauler Outdoor Gear and their “Swap Out” lanyard has got to be the most versatile and comfortable quality lanyard I have ever worn.

Call lanyards have become extremely abundant during the last few years.  With social media at the aid, you can search Facebook and have more results than you could image.  For some people,  making lanyards has become just a hobby while others have started small businesses.  But for Heavy Hauler, lanyards are more than just that.  Heavy Hauler takes lanyards and mixes in some awesome innovation.  Mixing high-quality braiding, neoprene, clips and swivels to make the Swap Out one of the most desirable lanyards on the market today.

Contains strap and two detachable braided lanyards.

What comes in the package.

The Swap Out features a Neoprene neck strap (featuring Max-4 camo and premium stitching), 2 detachable braided sections (green & tan – black & tan),  8 braided call haulers (with clips so you can position them where you would like) allowing for 4 calls to be hanging and tangled free and an additional clip for a whistle.  Have the 2 braided sections allows you to carry 4 calls on the lanyard with 4 more in your blind/pit bag.

Heavy Hauler has an accessory for this great accessory, the Quick Attach Duck Straps.  They use the same clips as the call braided section, so within seconds you have switched from calls to ducks hanging around your neck.  Great for that day when you reach your limit!  Simply undo your calls from the neck strap and clip on the Duck Straps.   You are now  ready to carry your birds back to the truck!  Watch this video of Jason Bird (Owner) as he demonstrates how to do so.

The Swap Out has become one of the most popular and sought after call lanyards since it’s introduction into the waterfowl market.  If it doesn’t say,  “Heavy Hauler”, it’s not the original Swap Out and can be found in retail stores for $34.99 which is an amazing price for such a versatile product and the Duck Straps are only $7.99!

I’m giving this lanyard a 10/10 simply because it’s everything I need with no complaints.  It’s just myself, this lanyard has been given an average of 4.8 stars from all the major sporting goods stores.


“Creating The Perfect Storm”

kicks GOT logo large2Kick’s Industries, Inc. is a manufacturer of shotgun choke tubes that specializes in improving your shotgun patterns. Our “High Flyer” waterfowl chokes are designed to increase pattern performance while reducing muzzle jump and felt recoil. “High Flyer” chokes are manufactured from 17-4PH stainless steel and machined to precise tolerances on CNC equipment. Kick’s chokes are diagonally ported at a 135 degree angle away from the shooter, which reduce side blasts that are prevalent in ports that are 90 degrees or less. Because if it’s sharp angle, the inside forward lip grabs, stabilizes and slows the wad for faster separation of the wad and shot column. This feature combined with a parallel section where the constriction is held constant produces great patterns. “High Flyer” chokes are also available for virtually any shotgun on the market in 10, 12 and 20 gauges and are offered in Improved Cylinder, Modified, Full, and XFull. Chokes feature a black finish, are laser marked and don’t require a wrench for installation or removal. “High Flyer” chokes are designed for steel shot or any non-toxic load but will also pattern lead loads as well.

Kicks has also teamed with Federal Ammunition & the Duck Commander to offer the new Kicks “Vortex” choke tube, specifically designed to be used with Federal “Black Cloud” ammo. Kicks “Vortex” chokes are a culmination of months of engineering & pattern testing delivering dense, uniform patterns shooting “Black Cloud” ammo. “Vortex” chokes are also available in Improved Cylinder, Modified, Full & XFull constrictions as well as safe to use with any non-toxic shot. When 3 powerhouses in the waterfowl industry work together to bring you a product and Phil Robertson, the “Duck Commander” puts his signature on that product, you know it is the Real Deal!
