Default A new sponsor for the Green Screen - Xenek

We have a new sponsor on the Green Screen - XENEK.

XENEK makes a great soft ground blind that is loaded with patent pending innovations. Two concepts ruled the design process behind this blind: One, it had to offer more customizable shooting opportunities than any other blind on the market. Two, it needed to be the most durable ground blind on the market.

The APEX ground blind comes with a backpack that allows you to haul all of your gear without the use of an additional pack.

You should check out their site and use the affiliate code TBH when ordering to get their flat rate shipping of $20 per blind.

And if you have any questions, Jake (username XENEK) will be your fast contact.

Welcome aboard the Green Screen XENEK!

Welcome.
They better put "Bow not included" on that pic/cost of their backpack setup. some people will most likely say they are showing a bow included on that pack, http://www.huntxenek.com/product-p/x-a-bp.htm

I just watched this youtube video by XENEK. And was really impressed with the blind's window system, and shoot through screen! Talk about customizing the window and screen! Great job fellers! I'll be adding one of these to my arsenal as soon as I can.

I would say you have had a ton of field hours in development. Congrats.
Hoping to be adding this to an arsenal soon. At 73" tall this may even work for trad bow hunters (HUGE DEAL) since most ground blinds will not accommodate the extra height.

Great looking blind. Just curious: is there a warranty with the blind? From what I read it doesn't look like it.

Thanks! I do believe Jerrod and I have logged more hours inside a ground blind while NOT hunting than anyone else!

We did have some traditional bow hunters shoot out of our blind at the TAC event in San Antonio. It worked for them, but it was close. If you try one out and find it isn't quite tall enough, we'd be happy to accept a return.

Thanks for the question - yes, XENEK provides a Limited Lifetime Warranty on our Apex ground blind. The warranty includes a lifetime warranty on all hardware items and a 2 year limited warranty on the fabric.

Great! From a consumer standpoint, if I spend that kind of money for:"the most durable ground blind on the market" I want it to be with a company that stands behind their product.

Additional question: if a few years after purchase there are some tears etc is there a patch kit or replacement fabric available for purchase?

We have replacement window covers available for our blinds. This is our flexible fabric that allows you to manipulate the main windows into different configurations. We do not carry a patch kit at this time. However, once the fabric warranty expires, we will either carry a patch kit on our site or be able to recommend a patch kit for you.

Thanks for the questions.

I watched the review video. Looks like a good product, but it also looks like it might be shiny. I would rather have seen them " review " it in full sun. The window arrangement looks very good, and the back pack is ingenious.

I will go back through some of our videos and look for some that show off the blind in direct sunlight for you. In the meantime, I've added a photo to our public album from our affiliates (LeeRoy Gonzales) that shows our blind in the Texas sun. I'll go through our images and load some more for you later this week!

I haven't been in one to mess with the window, but I love the concept and it looks good in the video. That adjustable window design is genius! Especially for those of us who sometimes share our blinds with much shorter people. I have two game winner pop-ups that are a nightmare for my wife because she can't comfortably shoot out the windows. Too high. Gotta boost her chair

Yes - the blind comes with shoot through screens that can be put up or taken down silently. The window shape can also be modified while the screens are up.
