Hardwater season is right around the corner and new products are coming out! Post below anything new for this season, or new for you!
New products 2020/21
It looks like they did introduce two new sizes of the insulated Outbreak, with the full zip doors. I myself am waiting for the ‘sale’ page to populate.
Their buffalo plaid 60th anniversary pop up looks pretty cool tho!
Well I'm a little confused about what's so remarkable about Eskimo's release. Didn't they already have the outbreak with walk through door? So now it comes in 3 sizes, anything really new besides that?
Ice suits look interesting, hard to really tell what the difference is between each without seeing them in person.
Finally something that got me excited. New inline reels from Pflueger. Getting some high quality mixed into the inline ice reel market.
I've been hearing some chatter that they have some good stuff in the works so we will see what they came up with. I'm in the market for a 1 man flip, I'd be surprised if they came out with something new after just releasing the wide 1 inferno...3 years ago now? Either way I'll keep an eye out before pulling the trigger on the Otter XT hideout.
Junkie4ice, Eskimo’s release date is Sept 10th. Watch for it, you will be impressed.
Eskimo should be formally releasing their new 2020 products very soon, they put out an IG post a few days ago.
I'd keep an eye out for last years model of the Otter XTH lodge. I got mine for $250 two years ago and they should be heavily discounted with the new vortex line. Hard to beat Otter but Eskimo comes pretty close when it comes to hubs.
mcgeer, SG is showing an Eskimo Outbreak 250 3 man which I will be purchasing. Cabelas CA is showing an Outbreak 650. Which is a size up from the original 450.
I’ve been saving up for a larger 4(ish) person pop-up shanty. It looks like the front runners are Eskimo and Clam- do we know if there are any new models or brands coming out with something worth checking out?
Hopefully they came up with a way to drop their price a bit. 8" auger pushing $800 is absurd when you get the same out of a drill/auger combo for $400. They are great units though that is for sure!
Sweet, looks like Ion has juts released a 10" Ion G2 composite flight auger. Last year I used the 8" G2, cuts super fast and was super light coming in at 17 LBS. This old man can toss around a 17 LBS auger all day long!
