Default Ice fishing tents.. Which one?!?!?!

Hello fishing friends,

I am in the market for a new ice tent and looking for some feedback, a few things I know for sure is that it will be the 6 sided or the double wide version for more space as well as being insulated.

I think have it down to the following options.

Eskimo fatfish 6120I

Fatfish 9416I

Otter XTH Pro Resort

I have run Eskimo all this time and have had a few issues with poles and hubs but otherwise they have been great. any help or feedback is appreciated.

Default Otter all the way...

I do not have the hub-style you are referring to, but I have had Eskimo and Frabill, and now Otter. The quality of the Otter is second to none. They are more expensive, but, my opinion, worth the extra $. I like the quality of the fabric, the sturdiness of the square tubing, and just the overall quality.

We have an Eskimo Quickfish 5i and love it. It's plenty big for 4 guys, holds heat, and easy to set-up and take down.

I'm looking at picking up a 9416I this year. Fished in a friend's 9416, and the space was fantastic. I just want the insulated fabric. I have a Clam Bigfoot XL4000 that is a great 2 man and an OK 3 man if you have little gear in there. My problem is my windows shattered on LOW one morning. Since I usually fish with at least 2 others, the Eskimo fits my style better. I know Clam has one close to the same size, but I like the idea of replaceable windows.
