Mike: Didn't know if you have seen this camo pattern yet. It's definitely different and wondered what you thought. Thanks, Jim
I had not seen it, so I checked the Eyedeal website. One thing I read does have some truth and merit:
Most other camouflage patterns create a dark blob that deer can spot in a tree. Eyedeal Camo fools a deer’s eyesight with a vertical illusion, and you blend in perfectly with the tree and sky-line behind you.
I qualify that by saying the “dark blob” would only be a potential problem in mid- to late-season woods when leaves are down (like in the picture) and even then it is arguable that a blob (you up in the stand) would spook deer if you kept still. But I will say this is an interesting concept. By adding the vertical strip it further breaks your silhouette, and that is always good, so I am certain it would work OK in a tree stand.
What do you think, would you buy it?
The bigger question, can a specialty pattern like this go up against Mossy Oak and Realtree and survive, especially in this economic climate? Many have tried, few have suceeded.
