    Shooter Buddy Aging Accelerator

    "Shooter Buddy products reproduce 10 years of slow aging in seconds by exposing beverages to a powerful replication of the earth's magnetic field."



    Anybody heard of this thing?

    I looked at their web site, and I was immediately intrigued by this image. Anybody tried "Tennessee's Best Kentucky Straight Whiskey"?

    Re: Shooter Buddy - electronic drinking gizmo

    I have a shooter buddy. Picked it up from them in Vegas a few years ago. I can't say exactly "what" it does to a whiskey, but it "does" do something. Take a kinda harsh pour and put it in the thing for about 1 min. (not the 10 secs. they say) and it really "smoothes" it out. Gives it a great mouth feel. I have tried it with wines and it is remarkable with whites. (you tip the glass at an angle and it rest on top of the posts).

    If nothing else, I have used it to degauss my TV before. Works great. The magnets are REALLY strong. It however, is not electronic. Nothing but plastic and very high gauss rated magnets.

    Get one, it won't hurt, a it does someting neat to your pour. I, however, only use it occasionally.

    Having just flown a couple hours ago, I wonder why the airlines are worried about my damn cell phone. Sounds like the Shooter Buddy ought to be of greater concern! This could be the next duty free item of choice! If not, an episode of 24 revolving around its properties does seem in order!

    I hereby classify anything to due with magnets or magnetic therapy

    See the Penn & Teller show and the take they have on this!

    If it ages things ten years in 10 seconds, I wouldn't carry it in my pocket.

    Actually, I took Ed's view as more of a 'eunuch' take on things.
