The categories

The page headings may seem obvious, but keep in mind many categories overlap. Some items are difficult to categorize, so skim the options.

Descriptions have been supplied directly from the manufacturer. That way you get the message directly from the people who designed what you’re after. Plus you can blame them for the spelling errors.

Instructions to read a guide? Well, how about a few helpful hints. Otherwise you might not get the optimum experience for which this guide was designed. Oh, never mind. Just pass over this page and get to the Sub-category good stuff. We understand.

The MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) comes from the manufacturing and may be in U.S. or Canadian dollars, depending on how it was submitted. We’re going by a ‘close enough’ mentality. If you really must know to the penny, click on the website link below.
