Worst by far was the Eskimo Fatfish949I. Actually very disappointed with a house I saved money for and was my large purchase last year. I was so excited for the "First" time out , then it hit, a 10 mph gust , no kidding, and the wind side hub popped in and knocked over my poles into my minnow bucket and tipped over my minnows onto the ice...😡😡😡 every time out for the rest of the season even if there was no wind I tied down the windward side with cam straps. Needless to say I brought it back to FF and returned it. The rods are so sm in diameter and flex with the slightest of wind. If you're looking at hubs I strongly suggest to look at the poles and test them at the stores before you make a big purchase especially insulated .
Best purchase ..can't go wrong with Northland puppet minnows. I must have every size color in the market
