I purchased a few of the new Eurotackle Z Viber Micro. 

I’m interested to see how it does jigging for panfish. 

My only complaint is that it was advertised as rattling, but it has a super faint sound - like just one tiny BB

Jigger

I saw that on Facebook  . Looked great until I found out that it works off the Jiffy auger . Don't have , or want a Jiffy . My old one starts and works just fine.  Now if it came equipped with its own engine or motor I would be very interested.

Those are super cool, not something that interests me but still awesome. Do they come with the auger head or do you have to supply that? Does the auger head come off so you can use it to drill a hole?

Personally I take a pro-staff review with a grain of salt as its a paid review.

Worth reading but certainly wouldn't sway a decision.

Kenders Outdoors has some new shrimp and waxie tungsten jigs along with some new colors.

Eurotackle has a smaller version of their T-flasher, z-viber micro with added tungsten for more weight and a new "live spoon"

Full disclaimer, I didn't really have any complaints about it until I broke a pole (user error) and made the upgrade to otter. You don't know what you're missing until you try it out. After switching, in retrospect, my biggest complaint was the lack of wind resistance and the see through needle holes along the seems. You shouldn't get that with an insulated hub and the outbreak material seemed to have fixed that as it was completely black when I walked through it at the St. Paul show. It isn't the biggest deal for your average midwest weather and doesn't affect fishing, but when I spend a night on the ice that little extra air flow makes a big difference without the heater running. Spent a night in a blizzard this past year, 40 mph gusts, -20 wind chill and 8" of snow, I would have froze my butt in the 949i. Otter also seems to be much easier to set up solo and it isn't a struggle getting the shack back into the bag. I want to say eskimo upped their bag size since I had mine though. 

Just my .02, again not trying to downplay eskimo but I've used or owned just about every brand of shacks in the last 5ish years and that's just my input based on my experiences. 

I don't think offended is the right word, more disappointed in the lack of honest reviews now-a-days. I have no affiliation with otter to be offended and I'm not in the market for a new hub.

Junkie4ice,

Asking again, where did I state that the Eskimo was better than your Otter or any other shelter?  The 949 and the Otter Lodge Vortex Hub or almost identicle in size and pricing.  Comparing these two is not wrong when you look at all the specs. What did you dislike about the 949 to believe it is garbage?  

I did bring up the Outbreak as an option if they wanted to spent a few more dollars, which would give them a bigger house, not trip door and yes an upgraded fabric.  Every manufacturer has upgraded product lines.

Yes I am on Eskimo's Pro Staff, that is no secret.  Yes I promote that product because I believe that they offer a quality product at a fair prices and I believe in their product and customer service.  No different than somebody else talking about a different product line.  Nobody will take my word or your word exclusively, they are going take my thoughts and your thoughts and compare products for themselves.  In fact the original product requester said that they were going to go in a different direction.  Did you hear me rip them or that product?  Didn't think so.  I think what happened here is that I offended you because I didn't agree with you.   I am sorry that you were offended, but we each have differing opinions, we have to agree to disagree without getting upset.  Good day to you!

junkie4ice - what don't you like about the fabric on the 949i? I have that and the Outbreak 450i and haven't had any issues or complaints. I haven't been in any Otter hubs so I don't have that to compare to.
