pro-line boots

Question

Guest

Just last weekend I purchased my second pair of Rocky Bearclaws-800 mg of Thinsulate,Gore-Tex,in advantage camo- from the Sportsman Guide for $79.99. I got that price off of their website, and then I drove to their store/warehouse in South St.Paul to buy them. All the store folks wanted was the webpage printed out with the price on it. Those boots are $129.99 at the regular price. The Bearclaw is the best hunting boot I have ever owned. Too bad Rocky is no longer making them.

i am looking for a pair of hiking/hunting type boots for my son. i have a pair of rocky cornstalkers of my own and was looking for that type for him. in one sports shop i saw a brand called Pro-Line that looked very comparable. had 800grams thinsulate, 100% waterproof, camo uppers and leather lowers. they looked very nice. they cost about $80, considerably less than rockys. has anyone else heard of these or had any personal experience with them?? any input, pro or con, would be welcome.
the salesperson was a high school kid that didn't seem to know a lot. one of those kind that just tells you what he thinks you want to hear.
is this a case of getting what you pay for or is there a chance that you can get quality sometimes for less that what you expected to pay???
thanks.

PrLine boots have a good price point but generally dont have a good life expectancy. If your son will outgrow them by next year the might be a good buy, but if he will have them for a while it's better to go with a better brand (Rocky, LaCrosse, ect.) They may cost a little more at the start, but if they last him twice as long it is worth it.

Roop-Dogg, sorry,I forgot to say which part of the website I found the boots.Anyway, go back to their homepage,click on Deals of the Day,go to page 6, and then you'll see that page with the boots on the right hand column. SportsmanGuide is on Hardman Avenue in South St.Paul. Hardman is just east of Concord Avenue, and Hardman runs right along the Mississippi River.Their location is also just north of Hwy. 494. The address is 260 Hardman Ave. By the way, those Bearclaws are totally covered by cordura,in Advantage Camo. That rocks for turkey hunting.Hope this helps.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
