I don't really remeber any of their gadgets... I think there was a laser pen  once?
"Hey! Don't do that here. You'll mess up my bedspread."
Rolling his eyes, Joe sat on the window sill and started sawing.
"Thank you, Joe."
"You're welcome, Martha Stewart."

Yeah, I remember the laser pen. The trip wire was cool, but I also liked the mini recording devices in Burned. Weren't their cell phones part gadgets too?

The laser pen was more like a reused prop from another series:  Tom Swift (Archway), since Tom had that in his pocket most of the time in that series, along with other pens that worked as telescopes, soldering irons, etc.

I'm sure Tom isn't the first fictional character to use one.

The laser pen was used several times (Extreme Danger, I think in Boardwalk Bust, and Top Ten Ways to Die). Seems to be a popular thing.

So many cool gadgets to choose from.  8) Yeah, I agree the best ATAC gadget: their motorcycles 8)

And their brains are their best non-ATAC gadgets and even better than all of their ATAC gadgets put together!  ;)  ;D

Unfortunately they were under utilized in the series.  The Hardy's have had motorcycles in the past that we're not outfitted with gadgets and they still utilized them more in those appearances than they did in the UB's or even the graphic novels.  (The boys used their bikes during the first six books of the Original series, plus they used their motorcycles in the 1977 TV series.)

The motorcycles (or is it technically dirtbikes? I guess it's about the same difference really) also show up in the Casefiles at least once- #104 Wild Wheels

With the conversation on motorcycles: in the Hardy Boys Mystery Stories they have their cool motorcycles in many of the books. 8) As Frank cleverly said in #190 Motocross Madness (2005) -
Quote
"I remember reading an account of Hardys riding cycles as long ago as nineteen twenty-seven."

Oh yeah- I love cool inside jokes and references like that. Which is one of the few redeeming qualities about The Case of the Psychic's Vision- it actually has 2 or 3 really good such ones. But it also a lot of other stuff in there that I don't like so much... I finally read it a while back just to say that I'd read all of The Hardy Boys from #1-190 (well, revised versions anyway, for the most part)- but it was one of the last ones I finally picked up and read. It has a few good things though and is still entertaining overall.
   Anyway, this is getting further off track.  ;) ;D lol

What was wrong with that book? I liked it.
