Ok, so I'm fed up with fighting setting my double (A5) ledge. Looking to get something from this century. What double ledge do people perfer regarding ease of setup, ease of setting up the fly, lightness, etc. Thanks.
Sets up and tears down in about a minute, and is fairly light.
I have been told that the model can be a little saggy as it doesn't have a spreader bar. In addition, due to the fast fold out hinges you can't flag it, but as it sets up so fast it's not a huge deal.
Fish ledges are recommended often, especially if you are flagging. But, I have heard of people waiting several months for them. If you do order one from Russ, make sure and specify a date that you need the ledge by - there is a section on the order form for that.
Not sure how the ease of set up on a Fish would be versus an A5, but I'm sure someone here will know.
Love my Bdel cliff cabana, but for ease of setup, she's not your baby. I spent probably a total of 16-18 hours in the gym over a few days getting used to setting it up. I can do it in about 7 minutes but still have issues on the wall from time to time. First time I set it up it took me about 45 minutes by myself. blech.
Ouch! Here is a vid to taking down a FISH ledge. It is a single, but the method is the same for a double. According to the clock at the bottom of the movie, it took about 35 seconds to be bag ready. On a wall, I would double that, so about a minute.
Scott, Why do you like Fish? Just looking for details. Thanks.
It's really light and easy to set up. Tons of daisies in all the right places. Easy to break down. Cheaper than all of the others. Easy adjustment. Fits my 6'4" 210lbs ass and another comfortably, but without any extra room (wasted weight).
Mine is a little slack, although I know others who have more taut fabric for their ledge.
