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.

    • I have two decoy jig sticks that just slip in between the rods and 'canvas' on the roof.  A fish can pull some line off it hits hard.  A Velcro loop can be added for additional security.   There are more custom ways of doing it but that works for me.
    • I'll betcha the camera doesn't survive the summer.   And I clean my weeds off and the pull the plug too without grumbling.
    • I know...   It was a joke...   This is Sillytown (capital S)...     I did check to see if the article was legit though.

    • This is silly town.  It was a joke, although on a stand alone basis the article was pretty interesting.   If it was an actual discussion item it would have been posted in one of the hunting forums. 
    • I oppose all that camera stuff, with auto ticketing.   How will the camera tell if there is water in my live well?  Or in my minnow bucket?  Will it focus on the plug as I drive into the parking lot?     I also oppose the red light cameras and speed cameras.  What's next?  Drones following us around? 
    • Must be a hell of a good camera and lens. And no, I follow the rules now as they are written.
