Which rubber boot?

9 posts in this topic

Just was wondering which rubber boot everyone is wearing. I am due to get a new pair next season and would like some opinions. I currently own the Alpha Burly Sport. I am real curious about the new Dream Season Boot. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Yea- Dont get the muck boot. I have had 2 pairs rip or get holes in them and 2 of my hunting buddies each had a pair do the smae thing. I would go with the alphaburleys

I second the Alpha Burleys, I have the 1000 gram and they work good all season and have held up very well.

The only rubber boot I have found that seem to fit my feet right are the fanatic boot at Gander. They seem like they are a good boot and should be plenty warm for late season bow and ice fishing.

I'm on my 9th season with my Bean boots... when it gets colder I'll make the switch into my Muck's. I've got some Lacrosse that are great for December but you wouldn't want to walk much with them. Pretty clunky.

Ive got the Lacrosse alphas. They are probably the most comfortable rubber boot i've ever worn, fairly light, tough, and i've done quite a bit of hiking in them actually. he soles are good and grippy and feel some what like a tennis shoe inside.

i also have the lacrosse alphas and love them very comfy.

i thought about the scent blocker boots but they look like they are leak prone.

    • Any thoughts on the new CORE-ICE 6.5′ x 12′ Adventure Trailer.  Looks like a great design!  Is this the first year for them?  I don't find much on the web about them.    
    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
