Any one fishing out of the NEO mini max? Do they really get that hot compared to other darker colors?

Save weight and buy a neo. No need to bring a stove. Grill directly on the tubes.

Spider,

Do you have any pictures of a rolled up RMR storm ?

Any one have recommendations for oars? Seems like a decent oar with a percentage of the purchase going to a good cause.

Do you mean how do you decide how long of an oar you need?

It seems like most of these guys are running 8 foot oars on the storm. On a 50 inch frame I have a set of 7'8" oars. One a 60" frame i have I run 8 to 9 foot oars depending on what kind of water. On 72" frame 9 to 10 foot oars. But I also have my handles farther apart than most.

I could run 7 foot oars on that 50 inch frame. I just do not own a set of 7 footers.

I just researched the topic so I get how oar length is determined. It seems that the majority of people are using 8ft oars for their storm. I'm currently deciding between an NRS frame and a basic version of the RBW Blue Wing Olive.. Any opinions?
