Your attitude, your style, your music, your lifestyle and your tools - all of it figures into what makes you a cool hunter.
Cool hunting is a trend among people that are obsessed with great design and travel the globe looking for it. As hunters, many of us are obsessed with design, but for most of us, function trumps form. Yet, when form and function collide in a simple way, we often find the very best performing and definitely some very cool hunting products. If you had to pick the coolest hunting products you've ever used, what would you choose? Why would you choose them? What do you like about them?
Benelli – the Italian gun maker previously used the tagline "Performance Worth The Price". As a Benelli owner, I agree with that statement. They make a great product, a beautiful product, a versatile product, and a product that's greatness comes from the simplicity of its design. If you've ever taken apart an SBE, you know how easy it is to clean, how few moving parts it has, how easy it is to put back together, how it is quite simply a cool hunting product. Perhaps that is why in recent years Benelli changed it's tagline from "Performance Worth the Price" to "Simply Perfect". They picked up on what their loyal owners already knew…that the perfection of this product, it's "cool factor", came from not over-designing it, but rather from streamlining it and making it adaptable to many different hunting situations. They realized that it had risen above being simply a cool hunting product, to becoming almost a piece of art. Following the artistic theme, their newest cool hunting product was named the Vinci. Benelli says, "Driven by a passion for efficiency and simplicity, Benelli engineers have advanced the cutting edge. The superbly balanced Vinci embodies a new way of looking at design. The revolutionary new in-line Inertia Driven operating system, with superior reliability and lightning fast speed, is the simplest semi-auto operating system ever devised". I can't wait to get my hands on a Vinci and to put it through a field test. It looks like a great product.
