I used to perch spear out of a frabil ranger, but never speared a pike out of it. The only problem I can see would be ceiling height and hitting your spear handle. I know some of the bigger and better ones would work. Find one with a side door. If you suspend decoys from the poles you won't be able to flip it open and you don't want to step over the hole if the door is on the front.
Eskimo Evo2 has plenty of room for 2 guys and plenty of ceiling height for a full sized spear. The window covering could be a little tighter, but it's not a big deal. Whatever you use, get the insulated version.
Flip styles work! I used to be real worried about light getting in and them seeing movement but not anymore. They are great for quick trips and re using a good spot when you gotta put the permanent shack away
I have a rover 1.5. Works great but pulling it out with man gear can really be a problem in slush or deep snow. I cut a v in the ice above hole so I can get the decoy out in front of me further. 5 foot spear is no problem.
