I would avoid final approach blinds. not nearly as durable as Cabela's or Rogers.

I've beat the snot out of my prolandr and it only has 2 rips, both came from packing it up in the tri-fold method with way too much stubble on it. I like that you can tri fold or fold in half. toss the door bars, they aren't needed. I love the profile, the blind doesn't cast shadows compared to full frame blinds like ground forces or finishers.

I like mine and have had it for going on three years now and it is still working,no rips,and I also have two other blinds with frames and to tell you the truth,not a fan of the frames,they are bulky and a pain in the butt to transport and set up,and they require alot more stubbing,you have to build the sides up to blend in a field just to hide the profile,the pro landr is not even close,pretty simple!

I bought a Final Approach blind a couple years back. Took it back the next day before even hunting from it then bought a GHG Ground Force. Haven't found a thing about the GHG I don't like.

get the Cabela's Northern Flight Ultimate Layout Blind its the best one out there,
good to 10 inches of water is the best part you dont have to be throwing it in water to want that ther grass is always wet in the mornings and thats a nice feature. i have this one and the Ground Force Layout Blind and its not even close to as good

The only thing I would say about the pro-lander or x-lander blinds is that they are low profile, but what I don't like are the flaps. If you get a real windy day, sometimes they will just fly open, so you have to face them the right direction...I had an x-lander, but now I have a pro guide-eliminator..say what you want about it, but its roomy, warm,comfortable, and yes a little bulky. But I'd rather be comfortable and have all my gear inside the blind, than have to keep reaching out of the blind to get into my blind bag. I hunted out of a ghg ground force blind once. It killed my back...don't know why they put that cross bar where they did..most uncomfortable blind I've ever hunted out of. As far as hiding a bigger blind in the field, nothing about 5 minutes of kicking up corn stubble and throwing around it can't fix. Once you hunt out of a bigger layout blind, its hard to go back to a smaller one...especially when its really cold and windy. just my two cents...hahaha

:lol3: :lol3: :lol3: :lol3: I had a kid bend my door bar on one side and my head rest upright bars...within the warranty period and Sephen at avery number one, told me the headrest parts were not a "for sale" item and that the door bars were going to cost me over 20 bucks EACH plus shipping. Haven't purchased another avery product since. What part do you need to replace?
