Back in 2005, Gerber saw the need for a flashlight that would give hunters an edge when tracking an animal at night. That's when they developed their innovative Trax Technology that makes blood standout against the infinite number of background colors hunters encounter. This technology makes it easier to track a wounded animal, thereby reducing the number of unsuccessful hunts due to a hunter not being able to see the blood trail at night.
How it Works
Since many things in nature, including a variety of trees, wood, leaves and other materials contain some red in them, Trax Technology was designed to mix an amber LED light with the more common red and blue colors in order to highlight true reds. This lets hunters more easily distinguish blood, for instance, making it possible to track their game at night.
The Gerber Game Tracker
One such Gerber light that makes use of the Trax Technology is the Gerber Game Tracker Blood Tracking Flashlight. While the Game Tracker weighs less than 7 ounces, and is comparable in size to similar flashlights in the Gerber line, measuring 6.88" in length, the Trax Technology takes this light far beyond its Gerber cousins in the realm of service it provides for hunters, law enforcement officers and others who need to distinguish a blood trail at night.
Running on four AA batteries, the Game Tracker emits a powerful lumens making it a popular choice by users of Gerber's original Carnivore and Carnivore XP blood tracking lights. Users rave about how the Trax Technology makes blood actually seem to "pop" out at you. Something that other so-called game tracking lights don't do.
Durability is A Must
And like all things Gerber, the Game Tracker is designed for durability as well as function. The rugged nylon body is overmolded with a durable rubber coating that makes it able to withstand abuse and keep working at premium power for up to eight hours on one set of batteries, which are included, by the way.
But if you're a hunter looking for a better way to track your kill, the Trax Technology you'll find in the Gerber Game Tracker can make all the difference in the world. It can easily take you from telling a story about the one that got away to telling the details about how you landed the rack that's hanging on the wall of your den.
