I bought a Avery Finisher a few months ago, haven't used it in the field yet but I mudded it up. The Finisher will work great for me, easy to set up in the dark I don't have any complants. I also heard great things about the other two you mentioned the Cabelas and the Power Hunter. I haven't heard of any complaints about visibility problems with the Power Hunter. Any one of the three you mentioned you can't go wrong. I'm sure the Cabelas blind is cheaper I believe $160 not sure about the durability. Good Luck.
Just because it is old dosen't make it a classic

I hunt out of a GHG ground force and i put all of my clients in avery powerhunters. If they are bigger guys i will put them in my ground force and i keep 2 old finishers just for the bigger guys. the ground force is easier to set up and take down than the finisher as it only has a stand up bar in the back and 2 keepers in the door flaps. the finisher is one of the most comfortable blinds out, but it is a little more difficult to hide it well in a field that does not have a whole lot of cover. you can cut the mesh out of the power hunter hood and you can see much better out of it, although it does not take much time to get used to it.

good luck hope this helps

My FA Pro-Guide is a piece of crap and broke last weekend.

I have a Cabelas (Pro, I think) and it is top notch. Comfy!

I got my Powerhunter last season and hunted hard out of it the entire season and dont have one thing to complain about... Its easy to conceal and comfortable.

I have a ground force blind and it works wonderful no complaints there. My brother use to use a Power Hunter and one day the wind was blowing and it was freezing cold. My brother froze his butt off. The Power Hunters are not that warm but if it doesn't get that cold were you hunt it is a good blind.

I just hunted out of my Avery Power Hunter today it is amazing it is extremely low profile and you are very very well hidden if you use some kiler weed it is the best blind in my opinion just mudd it up very well when u get it
