My Reflectix Install Pics

12 posts in this topic

I bought some reflectix insulation the other day and installed it in my new Recon DLX tonight.

Folded up:

I basically zip tied it to the front and back poles while cutting openings for the velcro straps.

I'll let ya know whether it works or not.

M1 , thats a nice set up, How effective is the heat retention with the way it looks in the pictures, with the single strip of insulation?

i have the same shack, and was looking to add the same insulation this season, did you make seteprate pieces for the sides?

I went out today and the stuff worked great.

Better heat retention (you could feel it and it was warm) and no condensation after 4 hours on the ice.

I really like the shack also...warm, comfy, and easy to pull.

Now...if I could just get the auger to start like it should!

Thanks for sharing. I picked up some today and will be installing it ASAP. With this cold weather and my thin canvas anything will help.

Did you run it down to the sled in the back?

I ran it from the front pole that lays on the ice to the back pole. I couldn't run it to the sled because there was nothing to tie off on down there.

I paid $13.99 for a roll of 24" x 25' on sale at M**ards.

did you notice condensation on the roof that is exposed and not covered by relfectix? My otter den roof is 51" wide and the reflectix is 48" wide. I was wondering if that extra inch+ on each side is gonna give me fits......

No condensation anywhere on the exposed portions of the roof...I have about an inch or so on either side of the roof.

I don't think you will have a problem.

Anyone have some of the 48" stuff left from their install. I would buy it from you, but I dont want to buy a roll of the stuff considering how little I would need for my Otter Den.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
