RefEDGE, LLC, a Maine company, releases new Stand-and-Spray™ vanishing referee spray.  Launched in January at the NSCAA show, after 2 years of development, RefEDGE PRO™ is sure to be a product that changes the industry.  RefEDGE PRO™ is the first in the world with the patent-pending Stand-and-Spray™ delivery method that allows the referee to stand upright while marking the field.  No longer does the referee have to bend over and take their eyes off the game.  RefEDGE PRO™ features the perfect size can between capacity and weight; large bulky cans are a thing of the past.  Without a doubt, RefEDGE has hit the mark with their brand as well; the can, the 6-pack box and the holster are all well done and sharp.  Unique to the industry also, the Stand-and-Spray™ formula allows the referee to vary the dwell time for the foam on the field… Want it to last a minute – spray it fast; want it to last longer – spray it slow to let it pile up more. RefEDGE™ made the spray for the referee to CONTROL THE GAME™ and CONTROL THE LINE™ the way they want.  Have you ever run out of spray in the middle of a line?  Worry no more… on top of the already impressive upgrade features, the RefEDGE PRO™ design now gives you warning when you are about to run out of spray.  When there are about 2-4 sprays left in the can, the spray will get “airy”.  The referee can still get a few more sprays out of the can by holding closer to the ground and won’t run out mid-line. See the airy warning, grab another can.  Multi-game usage and capacity is also impressive for such a small can.  The label says it will last 2+ games but real world tests yield up to (16) small arcs for the ball and (16) 5-6 foot lines for the wall – of course your mileage may vary.

If major upgrades to the spray weren’t enough, RefEDGE created their own holster with multiple patent-pending features.  Called the GRIPCAGE™, the holster is equally impressive and comes in 4 colors to match each referee jersey.  With the referee in mind, the thoughtful design incorporates the ability to wear the holster locked vertically, locked horizontally (right or left handed) as well as free-swinging.  Have you been frustrated in the past trying to get the can back in the holster – this is no longer an issue.  The GRIPCAGE™ design is very forgiving and allows the can to be inserted by sliding in from the top OR snapping in directly sideward OR (my favorite) “stab” the bottom of the can in midway first and snap the top in by tilting inward – so fast, so easy – finally!

RefEDGE really hit the mark with needed improvements for a needed product and with prices of $9.99 for the can and $16.99 for their green holster, it’s a great value.  Proudly, the spray is Made in the USA as well.  Check out their website at – it is a well done site and they currently have some nice promotions running.  Check your favorite reseller to see if they carry RefEDGE products.
