Shappell® FX 100 Ice Shelter
I bought my new fx 100 a couple weeks ago. So far I really like it. Its very light, roomy, and durable. Assembly was easy all components fit very well. The first time I took it out, the wind was blowing 25-35, the front would lift up so I had to anchor it down. I did make some wind bars for it, which work great. That would be my only complaint is that it doesn't come with wind bars. I have a few friends with other brands, and they all have the same problem. Over all I'm very happy the size and durability is what I was after, and shappell deliverd

Just what I wanted
Used 5 times so far on windy Montana rocky mountain front lakes,. Nice and light, easy to load into truck, carries all my stuff. Ok up to 40 mph winds. Up and down fast and easy to move. just purchased wear bars afraid I'd wear out plastic tub. Good for 2 holes under tent, I like better than other one man units because it is taller and is made in USA. Seems to be built well but parts are also available. Pretty easy assembly.
