Rhino or Line-X???

17 posts in this topic

Which one do you like more?? And do you know who can hook it up?? I want to get this for my new 'used' 01 Tundra (shortbed) I just bought. Cheapest I found was $404+tax at Zeibart in Fridley... wink.gif

TIA

Line X. I tried the do it yourself herculiner and hate that. I know many people with line x and that's what I'll be getting this spring.

If I had to choose between those two I would go with Line-X.

I have a Vortex liner in my '04 GMC and had one in my '03 Ford Ranger and both took a fair amount of abuse and never showed it. Vortex may be another option that you might want to consider. It may be cheaper, but the quality is as good as the other two. Waldoch is where I had my trucks done but there may be other dealers.

Thanks for the replys thus far... I forgot to mention that the $404 price above is for Rhino.

Line-x here. Mine is going on six years and it is still holding up great.

Line - X here as well.

My next fish house frame will be getting it as well just as a former coworker had done. Strength was darn near doubled he said and obviously there is no corrosion or damage worries with Line -X as its all but indestructable.

Some have a speedliner sprayed on them but they do not hold up year after year without maint.

Line-X. I had mine installed in 01 while my truck was new. I still have friends checking it out to make a decision. All have said it's like new, and it's gotten a lot of use, hauling firewood, furniture, the lawn tractor, the snowblower, and other lawn equipment. Next truck gets the same.

Where about do you live?

I had a Rhino lining in my 97 Dakota when I bought it if I remember correctly it was in its 7th year and still looked great and worked great but I did manage to take a chunk out the tailgate somehow.

Absolutely Line-X !!

I have it in my truck now & my last truck - no issues, not even chips. I "throw" a lot of big logs (about 80 Truck loads!!!) and even sharp things in it. It looks perfect. cool.gif

I looked at your internet specials and am interested in the access cover and spray combo... Is the access cover a retractable one? You have one to fit my truck?

FWA,

All I can say, is I am not the owner and the owner is a great guy. Almost all the local dealships use him and that’s how I have got to know him over the years. I have sent my family members to him and others. He does a top notch job and at a great price.

This is just a little tip for F.M.ers.. He is very cheap in price, but high in quality.

Make sure you tell them you heard of them off of Fishing Minnesota.com. May be Lee Harvey could get a new sponsor. grin.gif

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat
    • Sculpin
      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
