I bought a Frabill HQ 300 -- Do any of you have exp with this hut?

I wanted to get a Clam like my old one but it seems like the bigger 6-8 man huts are not sold in Ontario anywhere. Does anyone know of a place selling the bigger clams?

How about this one at Cabelas in Barrie. Ice Hut
There's another place in Orillia but I would not recommend it. Flyers were out last week, someone went to check and they still had not got their shipment. Hell they don't even have a website or on line flyer.

I recently bought my 4-5 man Thermal insulated Otter from basspro they did have a 4-5 & 6-8 man thermal insulated Clams that where very nice I must say and super spacious with a optional floor you can fold out that has 3 or 4 flip up rectangular ports for drilling 2 holes side by side for obvious reasons, to keep your feet dry and warm

I have previously bought a clam bigfoot xl2000 and the thing has been great. It just won't fit the 6-8 people in it that we want.

90" x 90" is a perfect size for 5 guys with bag chairs for 10 hours on the ice. with that 6th guy it takes out that tiny bit of space you need for the heater and flasher.

I looked at the Otter huts and they just didn't have great reviews and I won't ever buy an Eskimo based on the one we had last year. (peeling inside, ripped on the outside when it got popped.. stupid small bag to try and stick a ice hut back into)

Haven't had the chance to use it yet, going out Sunday.
The otter definitely is easier to pop up then a clam hut took me less then a minute.
big pocket on each side with 4 rod holders: 8 rod holders 2 pockets. 2 ports for propane tanks 2 large ceiling mesh for storage, Velcro removable windows: thermal window covers.
92"x92"
