Eastman ice cube vs Pack shack

5 posts in this topic

Which would be the better deal? Has anyone used either of these? ? ease of set up, portability, and sturdiness-durability?

I have a Pak Shak, and love the thing.. .I use it when I know I will be moving a ton... as far as set up goes.. Done... there is no set up, pull it over your head! The Seat is confy, light weight, and dark enought to sight fish out of...

I have never used the product by Eastman, so, hence I dont have an opinion on it.

Thanks. I guess I mainly need info on the Ice Cube. It would be nice to have more space if I had a buddy with. The pack shack I would use all the time though. Either one would be better than none at all. That is my current situation.

I just picked up an Ice Cube off a SAm's Club auction. I have set it up once. It took a little to figure out but once I figured out that I needed to "pop" the supports out more it went up fast. Take down was quick too. The case it comes in had shoulder straps and it seems easy to carry.

It seems roomy enough for two maybe three. I plan on using it with my other house so the whole family can be happy.

Hope this helps.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
