Anyone try Redfeather snowshoes?

3 posts in this topic

I've found a deal on some redfeather snowshoes and I'm pretty interested in buying snowshoes. Any ideas?

I've looked at the other brands and would consider buying them if they are better.

I bought a pair a few years ago. Model called the Black Hawk, not sure which current model is similar now. Has a live hinge instead of a bar under your foot so they lift rather than drag. I think the ones with the bar are made for climibing, so your shoe stays on the ground. I like them, the bindings are easy to adjust and they track straight. I think the other brand I was considering at the time was Atlas. Tried both and got the Redfeathers. Sierra trading post (dot com) usually has some on discount.

I haven't tried the redfeather shoes but when looking, pay attention to the bindings and that you are comfortable with them.

That said I have a pair of atlas 930 shoes that I tried out for the first time last night. I probably walked 4-5 miles with them, bindings are easy to open and pull tight and I hardly noticed them while walking. cool.gif

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
