Did you try marks bait & tackle in ravenna, I don't know for sure but he keeps a healthy inventory.

I know he had some shappell S3000's, 1 or 2 shappell bay runners, and a few Eskimo one man flips last week.

I was looking for the fx200.  Whats better the cabin style or flip over.  Do the flipovers stay warm?

It depends on you style of fishing, if you run and gun you would want a flip over, if you get to a spot, drill some holes and relax a cabin style would be roomy and better suited but requires a tear down and pack up before relocation.

Flip over it is then lol.  I was always just concerned about heat since the cabin style has a floor

You might want to consider weight also. Some two man flips are pretty heavy as opposed to one man flips where you give up a lot of space. Pop up hubs are light weight and roomy but wind could be a factor.  The one man flips just aren't enough room for me. I went to a suitcase style shappel with skis due to I'm getting to old to pull the heavy 2 man flips. Weigh your pros and cons and your fishing style and you will be fine. Good luck!

The shappell fx100 is a great shanty. It's the biggest one man on the market for fishing space. It also is the lightest on the market. Best shanty made at the cheapest price as well.

Ordered mine from a store in michigan and had it in a few days.

Same for the 2 man Gander Mountain I have.  Little buddy is a great unit.

The gander is a pull hub style so I can still run n gun with it.

 It comes with 6 very sharp ice anchors and 2 tie offs for the pull hubs.  The bottom edge has 4 grommets for the anchors.  No floor.  But I made one from the Harbor Freight anti fatigue mats.  I tapped the mats together using Ice n Cold tape from Home Depot.  The floor is 6' by 58" hinged on the 58" center line with the tape.  Worked out great.  I made a elevated sled, and the floor slides under it.  I'll post a sled thread later today. Wife goes to work at 1 and I can then set up in the garage for pics.

When fish are in schools, they sometimes take debate.

I was in the market a couple weeks ago, I called Marks but they didn't have what I was looking for, ended up with a quick fish 3 from L&M they had by far the lowest prices on the web including amazon with free ups ground shipping.

Cancelled sunday's trip but will be out with these thing this weekend, I set it up in the living room, very easy to setup, I'm taking a drill for the anchors.
