pro-line boots

5 posts in this topic

Just last weekend I purchased my second pair of Rocky Bearclaws-800 mg of Thinsulate,Gore-Tex,in advantage camo- from the Sportsman Guide for $79.99. I got that price off of their HSOforum, and then I drove to their store/warehouse in South St.Paul to buy them. All the store folks wanted was the webpage printed out with the price on it. Those boots are $129.99 at the regular price. The Bearclaw is the best hunting boot I have ever owned. Too bad Rocky is no longer making them.

i am looking for a pair of hiking/hunting type boots for my son. i have a pair of rocky cornstalkers of my own and was looking for that type for him. in one sports shop i saw a brand called Pro-Line that looked very comparable. had 800grams thinsulate, 100% waterproof, camo uppers and leather lowers. they looked very nice. they cost about $80, considerably less than rockys. has anyone else heard of these or had any personal experience with them?? any input, pro or con, would be welcome.
the salesperson was a high school kid that didn't seem to know a lot. one of those kind that just tells you what he thinks you want to hear.
is this a case of getting what you pay for or is there a chance that you can get quality sometimes for less that what you expected to pay???
thanks.

PrLine boots have a good price point but generally dont have a good life expectancy. If your son will outgrow them by next year the might be a good buy, but if he will have them for a while it's better to go with a better brand (Rocky, LaCrosse, ect.) They may cost a little more at the start, but if they last him twice as long it is worth it.

Roop-Dogg, sorry,I forgot to say which part of the HSOforum I found the boots.Anyway, go back to their homepage,click on Deals of the Day,go to page 6, and then you'll see that page with the boots on the right hand column. SportsmanGuide is on Hardman Avenue in South St.Paul. Hardman is just east of Concord Avenue, and Hardman runs right along the Mississippi River.Their location is also just north of Hwy. 494. The address is 260 Hardman Ave. By the way, those Bearclaws are totally covered by cordura,in Advantage Camo. That rocks for turkey hunting.Hope this helps.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
