Seats for Portable

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anybody has tried the econo version by Otter for seats. How do they compair to the cushion version. They look smaller and easier to trasport but are they comfortable?

Do a search on Butt Bridge in the Ice Fishing Forum.

T-Bone came up with a great set of plans that are pretty easy to make with basic wood working tools. It is curved to fit your butt, and takes a lot of strain off your back.

rod bender-

I use the econo version of Otter's seat, actually its Polar Sports seat but they are the same thing. Thorne Bros. had a good deal on them last winter and it fits my Otter den sled perfectly. Anyway, I can sit on it all day no problem. Yeah, the butt gets a little sore but I can't think of a seat you could sit on all day without it getting sore. I debated back and forth for the longest time between the smaller seat and the cushioned seat. I sat on one, then I'd sit on the other, then back to the other one, and so on until I bought the econo version. To me, it just seamed more comfortable and I'm completely happy with it.

I am wondering about ther bench seat for the otter. I am preparing to buy a magnum lodge and from what I have heard, the bracket type seats are fairly cumbersome to lug around, taking up much space. I have also heard the bench seat holds the cover up slightly, not allowing snow to pile up on drooped cover. I have not seen a benck seat on an otter yet, they are quite spendy and I also wonder if it will actually get in the way of loading and unloading gear. Anyone have the lowdown?
