I have two of these. They are well worth the money. Somewhat difficult to get it set up in high winds though. I have never had to do anything but put weight (tacklebox or rod case etc.) on the inside corners when I have it set up. Not gonna find a better house for anywhere near the money.

I've had the Quick Flip II for a few years now. Works great for two guys. Kinda tough to stand up in, but there's enough room to stand up and stretch out a bit. Windy days without any snow to pack in the sides can make it tough. Wind took us for a ride one time, we slid about 20ft from our holes. Not good when you've got a heater going and everything set up....

I grew up fishing in a 6X6 permanent house with a hole in each corner. My dad, my grandpa, my brother and I would all fit in there. We hauled our gear out in a 1957 Ford. We heated the house with a small gas heater. It was warm, it was roomy enough and it was simple. This is the very reason I finally ended up with a Clam 4Person house. There is enough room for four, it is easily heated with a small propane heater. It's easy to set up. It folds down to practically nothing and probably costs about what it cost my Dad to build his 6X6 in 1958. Don't worry about the high winds. If it is that windy out, and it has to be very windy, like 30mph or more, then skip that day because no matter what house you have it won't be great. Finally, you can actually stand up in it.

    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL

    • Every one said, with out Double here we may as well leave.   So, Welcome back may be with you here they will come back now! 
    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud.
