Question Big Mike blinds by Barronett

anyone used one of them or heard anything about them? I'm 6'2 and have what has been affectionately referred to as "gorilla" arms.

Searched the forums for any info before posting so I was wondering if you guys had any input.

I have one at all of my stands. Very roomy and great durability so far. The only thing I don't like is that you must stand up for close shots because the windows are higher up unless you have a tall chair.

I'm 6'2" with these "gorilla arms" that you speak of

I was interested in their blinds. I was wondering about their hub durability. I am wanting that Bell Bottom.

Get a Krivoman blind, I'm 6'3 and have 30" draw. Works great for me!

I've had an offer for one as a birthday present so I'm doing some research on them. Are they really roomy enough to comfortably stand and shoot without making all kinds of terrible noise? I guess that's my biggest concern.

thanks for the input so far guys!

Kinda hard to fold that up and scoot around with.

Yes. Like is said, I'm about your size from what it sounds like. I can stand, draw, and move my bow at full draw without hitting anything.

awesome to know. I was trying to decide between the Big Mike and the Big Mike XT, but at only 6'2 and weighing in at 185, I don't think I need the extra space.
