Eskimo Quick Flip II

5 posts in this topic

I have seen this on sale and am curious if anyone has any feedback. I like the size and the price but I am concerned about the canvas- you can see thru it.

I have a Fishtrap II now that is getting some holes - any feedback?

I purchased one of these, like you said size form and function are nice but canvas stinks. Mine was new in the box so I didn't realize the tent wasn't the same as the display model, which had excellent canvas. Check the one you buy there are diffent grades of cloth. I contacted ardisam they are sending me a new skin of high quality for free.

I've looked at them but I ended up gettting a fish trap guide because when I sat in them they let alot of light in. I also talked to some guys on the ice about them and they didnt like all the light that came in and he said they dont do well in wind they were very flimsey. Hope this will help and good luck.

MN,
I just got mine for Xmas and the ice here in western SD sucks so I've only used it once and you're right the canvas is quite light. It didn't seem like it it was built that flimsy as stated before but when I put it inside for storage I slid it on it's side and burned a hole in it right off the bat. It's my first portable so I really don't have a lot to compare it to.

I have the eskimo traveler. The best that I can say for the eskimo products is that they tend to be cheaper than most of the rest. You don't get cheaper using the same products as the more expensive lines.

Hence cheaper = cheap

    • It's a female Bigfoot,  silly.
    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
