Best Muzzy!!

12 posts in this topic

What do you guys think is the best muzzy out there right now?

I have a CVA 50 cal and a TC 50 cal, love them both, but our party is getting bigger, so we are in need of a few more.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Putting $$ aside, hands down I'd go with the TC Encore Endeavor. Great fit and feel for me and awesome functions (swing hammer, speed breech, etc.)

However, for less money you can't go wrong with the TC Omega with the thumbhole stock. It feels a lot more solid when it's shouldered the the traditional stock.

I shoot a 45 cal Magnum TC Encore and love it. Flat trajectory, and still very good knockdown. I would buy another in a heartbeat. I don't know what the magnum stands for, but I know it handles 150 grains powder and a 200 grain bullet like a champ.

I totally love my Traditions Pursuit LT .50 Cal. Great Gun for the a great price. Shot four deer with it last year. Never had a problem with it. I love it so much I will no longer (partly because of the deer hunting rule changes) be slug hunting this year.

I only shoot 100 grains, but I have sited in with 150 and it is very flat trajectory out past 100 yards.

i was talking to a guy that owns a gun shop down south, and he said that you are going to be wasting powered if you shoot 150 gains. He told me to put a white bed sheet down and shot it with 150 gains, just over half of the deck didnt burn up from the shot. Again, i shoot a smaller barrel, so that might be what it was from to. I only shoot 100 max.

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
