Otter or Team Wild

14 posts in this topic

Going to get one or the other this fall, probably a 2 man slight chance of a 3 man. Got a few questions.

Is the Otter worth the extra $$ I know they weigh more and 90% of the time I'm pulling by hand which is why I'll probably end up with a 2 man.

I see the T W has 600 denier vs 900 for Otter how do they compare to the thickness I have on my fish trap pro?

Are the tubs the same or is one heavier duty than the other? Thanks for any and all advise.

I bought the one man team wild and love it they are cheaper the canvas is a little thiner but keeps the wind out and holds the heat in good.I also walk out and pull the house out and pulls very easy and yes I do belive they do use the same sleds as otter.hope this helps.

I believe the only difference is a lighter material on the skin of the Wild.

Same tubs I believe but I could be wrong on that. Check their HSOforum.

The last I looked, the Otter sled is heavier and comes with a 3 year warranty. The Wild sled comes with a one year warranty. There's a slight difference in sled wall height I believe.

I believe you're correct about the sled wall height. If I recall it's lower than what comes with the Otter.

Yes the sled is a little different don't sit on the front if you are in it yourself it will tip over

I have the two man Wild and like the house.

You can pull it by hand, I would recommend you put the Hyfax runners on it as it makes a big differents.

Otter to me is the way to go I have the village big and heavy but lots of room and good heavy canvas keeps it warm! 3rd year for it now and I dont think you could ever break the sled! lol!

The wild has a thinner (but still very good) canvas, 600 VS 900 denier, and a thinner ( but still very good ) sled. The Wild will come with a bench and the Otter will have swivel seats.

They both have square tubing but the Otter will have the new Nylon slides that help from getting any metal on metal contact and the burs that can go along with that at times.

You can see all the details at www.otter.com

I have had 4 Otters and love them. I now have a Ice Camo Lodge and its a great 2 man house with plenty of room.

If you get the Otter make sure you get a sportsmans caddy for it. Best piece of equipment I have gotten for my houses in a long time.

I am thinking of upgrading my otter to a canvas craft. You can get an insulated model on the Otter II sled for less than a comparable otter.

Not sure, but I have seats from my Otter Den. I am looking at getting a roomy 2 man.

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
