Windshield Recommendations

8 posts in this topic

I am looking for a windshield for my polaris sportsman for ice fishing this season. Any recommendations on where to get one at a decent price? The dealer ones look nice but are not cheap either. Thanks!

If you have a 2005 or newer sportsman get the Polaris Lock N Ride windshield ($120) very easy on and off. You get what you pay for.

I have a 700 King Quad, I picked up a factory one and am glad I did.My friend got one off the net for a lot less, but it lasted one trip across the lake. You get what you pay for. Just my thought!!

Hey SomethingFishy -

I see in your photos that you have the lower profile windshield on your Polaris. I may not be remembering correctly, but didn't you have the high profile windshield when we rode last January (or whenever that was)?

I'm looking at a windshield to use while plowing, to cut down on the spray etc. Seems like the high profile would be the way to go.

Any thoughts?

A lock and ride will fit on your 04, I just put one on my buddies last spring. The polaris ones are the best.

We have both the Tall clear windshield and also the shortblack one as well. We keep a windshield on year round.

I agree with getting the windshield from Polaris. My dad has one and it's a good, sturdy unit. It's not cheap, but it can be taken off and put on in under 30 seconds which is nice for transporting to and from the lake.

    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
