Anyone gone "COMMANDO" ?

5 posts in this topic

Sorry, just couldn't resist laugh. Anyone have the new Frabill "COMMANDO" yet? I was thinking about selling my Yukon and getting one because I fish in my portable almost 100 percent of the time alone. Wife doesn't like the early ice. I was curious to see how the guys who have them like them. Thanks for any of your input.

Yup..that is how I hang now. I went Commando, and love it!

Lot of room, fish able space is more than adequate for one person, the deluxe seat is awesome, the front door is handy, new heavy Black/Grey/Gold tarp is very dark and durable so sight fishing is easy, lots of storage room, a great new Max Venting system eliminates frosting, fast single stage set-up so hit and run is easy as flip up or down and run. A sharp looking shack.

I think it is the best 1 man unit on the ice today.

glad to hear that ---I've been leaning in that direction too----but I want to see one up close and personal before I drop the bucks on one

I looked at one and thought about selling my Scout, problem is I have only used the Scout once since new and spent the money on hyfax and a cover already.

I really wanted one but opted for the Recon DLX...probably not in the same league but it'll do.

Just was kind of hard to convince the Mrs. to spend the extra $ on the Commando when I just bought a Filson bird hunting jacket 10 minutes before looking at portables.

    • Bureaucrate-   Correctly me if I'm wrong, weren't you a huge advocate against AIS lawd and allowing the DNR to pull over fishermen and boats for an inspection? But you are okay with them pulling over deer hunters?    Sounds like anything they do, you are against. If they said black, you'd say white...

    • Same circuit as the freezer?!! Oh no no no......!!! They kick in at the same time, and  *TRIP* Always have the pump on a separate circuit!!  As mentioned, GFCI is what code calls for, but sometimes dampness will pop one, rare, but I've seen it happen. I nixed the GFCI on mine when I ran a separate circuit for just the pump. That should solve your problem. 
    • I am from Richland Center.
      I have 2 2500 stradics in dis-repair.
      Both bales refuse to return to closed.
      Heard it may be simple as a spring.
      I am kinda cheap….if costs a lot to fix i will buy new reel. Anyone know somewhat local repair person that is reasonable?
    • Well you can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.  
    • Another one thawing.  made this one for my nephew but will keep it for me. So will have another one in the brine in a couple days. 
    • It's a little early to be hitting the bottle don't you think?  Believe in Trump and you'll feel better.
    • Ok I'll save you from dying. Where can i pick it up? 
    • I use to work on all aluminum body fire trucks.  The only screw, bolt, washer, or nut that we would use was stainless steel as the by using anything else will allow electrolysis to start from dissimilar metals and corrode.  Only problem was the strength of the SS is not as high as regular steel.  Also if you are using SS, i would only use bees wax as a lube.  I use to buy it in a block, and just rub the threads on the screw before putting in the hole.  If you don't, you may find that the threads gall up and strip out.  Then you have issues cause it can be tough to drill out a broken SS screw.  If you have a bunch to do, i found that a combination drill/tap was very useful.  It will drill the hole and tap at one shot.  Here is what they look like.  Good luck. http://www.graybar.com/store/en/gb/combination-drill-tap-bits-22082167?cm_mmc=pla:google-_-googleshopping-_-gb5349-_-22082167&utm_source=google&utm_term=&utm_campaign=Graybar>PLA>Category&utm_medium=cpc&utm_content=fto6JW9w|pcrid|49843833890|pkw||pmt|&gclid=CPzt0MP72tACFYKSfgodC4MH_g
