Thermal X zipper freezing?

6 posts in this topic

Tried out the nex Thermal X for the first time last weekend and was happy. The only problem is that the zipper would freeze making it difficult and sometimes impossible to open/close. This never happened on my old otter. I am thinking this is because of the condensation on the inside of the shack and that it was really cold on Lake of the Woods. It does stay warmer than my old otter, which I think is the cause for the increased condensation?? Is there anything I can use/do to prevent this from happening?

Thanks, Matt

You can try applying parafin wax to the zipper. I have the same problem when it gets real cold.

Try rubbing a bar of Ivory soap on the teeth.

You'll find paraffin wax next to the canning jars and lids.

Or use a candle. Those long skinny candles that burn down to stubs are perfect.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
