If it feels right to you, thats what matters.

What is the laptop worth? Which do you need more?

Equiring minds want to know........

A recent laptop is worth around $ 300 and up, if the sled is a runner, I would say it's a fair trade.

This is probably around a year and half old laptop. I don't need it, I have a few of them. It's had the RAM beefed up to 1.5 gigs, has a 2 gig processor and 60 gig Hard Drive. Built in wireless as well. It comes with Windows XP and also Office XP with Frontpage ($400 value). I estimaged getting a sled or wheeler between $700 & $1000 for it. IT's not new but has little use and should last the average user a few year. They sell for $600 on ebay for this model with no office on them.

I have a lead on another sled as this one isn't read yet. Here's the scoop on it. Which one would you go for. More for ice fishing than anything but trails wouldn't be bad either.

1996 POLARIS ultra, triple, ONLY 2600 AND SOME CHANGE MILES ON IT. i GOT IT IN A BARTER, BUT HAVE LOST INTEREST IN IT. GOOD TRACK, AND AFTERMARKET SKI'S. FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN IT IS A BARGAIN. It was sitting since 2002. I HAVE IT REGISTERED TILL 2010, AND I WILL GIVE YOU THE TRAIL PASS I HAVE FOR SCOTT COUNTY, ALSO GOOD TILL 2010.

Being a life long Polaris owner I would stay away from the Ultra's.

Although it may be worth the Laptop!

i had a 97 ultra very heavy but fast, not the best sled for going slow pulling a shack i think it will load up & fowl the plugs. just my $.02

I would concur here...i dont think a triple in general is a good ice fishing sled due to the slow speeds and fouling.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone recommend the Polaris Triples.

vikingmeatwad, you will hear lots of guys recommend the XLT's but not the Ultra's. I'm a Cat guy, but in my opinion the XLT's were good sleds from what I saw. The Ultra on the other hand was a big pile of manure!!!

XLT's are aweseome..... just a little to heavy and you don't need the extra cyllinder for icefishing!

i have a xlt i love the sled other than the fact it weighs as much as a cow, but its way fast and i never had a problem with it. i have taken it ice fishing a couple times and going slow is not good for the triples, they load up and start missing, if this happens just go wide open for a while without pulling and you should be fine

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.
    • FishinCT
      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
