Clam Hub Light

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone used the Clam light that mounts to the ceiling of your hub?  I like the fact that it mounts to the house, so you can't forget it, and that it runs off your flasher battery, so you don't have to worry about your batteries running out or having a stockpile of Duracells on hand (as long as you keep your flasher charged).  My main concern would be shadows, thinking that depending on how you're sitting you might be casting a shadow over your hole.

Just interested if anyone has used it, and if they like it.  I know, I know, $50 is a lot of money for a stinking light, but ice fishing is about the only thing I don't feel guilty about throwing a little money at.

I like to use the clam stick light, very bright and runs off the vex to if you want and you can hang the light by 2 velcro straps that come with it.

That is a nice model. I have that in my 1660.

There was a thread going about how bad Clam products are and their poor quality but the thread was soon deleted...so good luck finding and "true" reviews about this or and Clam product.

Yeah, I know certain products can be touchy subjects in these parts. For what it's worth, I bought the Clam light over the weekend. While I haven't had a chance to use it on the ice, I did set-up my hub in the basement to see how the light would work and thought it was incredibly bright, much brighter than I was expecting. However, I borrowed an idea from someone else I found online and glued a strong magnet to the back of it, so I can remove it if I want to, instead of having it permanently mounted to the hub using the longer bolt it comes with.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
