Smith Optics adopts Serialization for its tactical products

Published on June 15, 2012 by in Multimedia, News

 

The most important piece of kit in your Airsoft loadout is your eye pro. Many Airsofters out there don’t give much importance to this but it’s our eyes that are on line every time we go out to the field with questionable goggles. If you ever experienced the impact of a bb on the skin imagine what it can do to an eye or even the shattered plastic or glass from your eyewear.

Now I have seen a few people defending the usage of ballistic eye protection for Airsoft, and quite frankly I couldn’t agree more, since this is one of the most serious injuries an Airsofter can get.

When purchasing a pair of ballistic goggles or glasses, it is very important to make sure the products will do exactly what they are designed to do.

One eye protection manufacture in particular stands out in this respect. Smith Optics has taken this a step further and adopted a common practice to the ballistic body armor and helmet industry: Serialization.

Serialization is a protocol that ensures backward tracking and management of all the products produced by a certain company and to their testing. In the case of Smith Optics it’s their ballistic lenses.

 

 

This works also as proof that processes are in place that control and meet the standards that the US Military has created for ballistic level eye protection. Smith Elite engraves a serial on each lens in the form of a unique 13 space alphanumeric code. Smith Elite then keeps records of when these lenses were manufactured as well as the sample test that was conducted out of that batch. The goal of serialization is to create consumer awareness that the product meets the safety standards we as players need on the field to avoid injury.

By doing this Smith Optics have raised the bar for the tactical eyewear industry and at the same time reassured me as player that their products will keep me safe when I am down range.

Airsoft as a Tool for Real Steel and Military/Defence Operators

Published on May 13, 2012 by in Multimedia, News

Perhaps two of the most inevitable and obvious premisses are that Airsoft even though a sport/game as deep entrenched roots in the Military, and that these two don’t always see eye to eye, but they need each other.

On one hand you’ve got more and more operators out there turning to Airsoft as a cost effective solution to complement their real steel training, and on the other hand you’ve got the Airsoft industry which has been developing really fast in order to provide the most accurate and realistic solutions.

And you’ve got proof of this in a recent podcast starring the CEO of Haley Strategic Partners, LLC, Mr. Travis Haley, where you will hear from the experts how an operator can benefit from Airsoft to complement his training.

One other thing I’d like to note is that many of the companies in the military industry, lets take the tactical gear industry for example, are still not taking Airsoft into consideration, and really downplay it.

It will be however an interesting turn of events when they realize that their regular customers are going to their local Airsoft field to improve their skills, and there is a huge number of potential customers that play on those fields that they start to take into consideration because they will bring more business and it will increase the quality of the games and the sport.
