I want one mainly for lake St Clair so I can be mobile on foot. I already have a 2 man Otter Ice Cabin that I pull with a quad.

Those cheaper frabill (aegus) 2 man are great. They are light enough to handle yourself, and the extra space you get when you remove a seat is nice to have.
I think 78lbs, if you dont get the heavy insulation.
Still a 2 man though.

So I pulled the trigger on this one. Mainly because I had a couple Cabelas gift cards that I wanted to use for this purchase. It was the nicest of the one man flips that they sell. Ships in 5 days.

Just got a Shappell FX 100i this year. Does everything I need a one man to do.
I have the 2016 fx200, does the new fx100 vent at your feet by the tub? If so, it really sucks on cold and/or windy days. Especially if there’s no snow.

I have a ten year old Rover, that shanty was awesome.

Same as the 200. Every once in a while its a pain in the butt, but mostly works fine for me.

Not into taking any advise (OP) about the Lions, maybe he will with the Excellent reviews of the Rover, nope guess he went with a clam.
You may want to check the history of me in the Lions threads before you label me. You’re obviously new over there.

I've made couple easy adjustments on my ole 1mans. Velcro and spread out some window weights,or the 12oz long duck decoy weight help prevent updrafts;) prior to that I had to put my feet on it, was pain in azz.and reely sped up a bad case of shanty back lol
