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.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
