Frabil R2-tec or Clam therm x2

9 posts in this topic

Which house would any of you take? Looking to buy one or the other for the cold winter days out here in SD. Just looking for insight from those who have fished out of either or?

I believe that is the R2 Tech model #300 GT Fortress edition. The King of Thermal portable shacks.

The new R2 Tech "09" Edition model 7080 is something to behold too, it really steps of the game a notch.

Yes it is the model 300.Here`s a few pictures of it out on the ice.The material never frosts up.The only thing that ever frosts up is the sled when your fishing in minus 30-40 windchills.It was well worth the investment for me as i tend to ice fish every weekend throughout the winter.

I never fished out of a R2, but I am really happy with my X Thermal. You stay really warm in the house. I think either one will do the job. Good choice by wanting to get a insulated portable. They are worth all the money!

I had seen both the Thermal X and Frabill R2-tec this year and felt that the frabill was a bit more heavy duty. Ill be buying one tomorrow

You may wanna take a look at Canvas Crafts line of Insulated huts and skins. The originators of insulated portables and first with the Norpac R-2 insulation.

That shack is so purdy...it don't need the Swimwear Extreme Bikini Team to sell it!

But...If they added them...it wouldn't hurt my feelings any....at all...really!
