Frabil Ice Shuttle (Wind Break) In Search Of:
« on: Sep 24, 2021, 11:53 AM »
Cheers!  I am in the process of resurrecting my old Frabil Ice Shuttle.  However, the Wind Break that comes with the Ice Shuttle cannot be located.  I did contact Frabil and the Ice Shuttle has not been produced for years, and they have no Wind Breaks.  I am hopeful someone out there has one stashed in their shed, garage, etc. that you may be willing to part with.  I will pay shipping and whatever reasonable cost for your Wind Break.  I have attached pics of the Frabil Ice Shuttle.  I enjoy bringing "life" back into some of these retro ice fishing items.  If I can locate a Wind Break, it is absolutely for my private use.  All the best to you and your families.  Thanks!  Coyote

why did they ever discontinue this? I saw one on the ice once and was impressed. could never find one for sale locally. Anyone try to convert their Glide Lite into one of these?

I know they were prone to the back corners wearing holes real fast.i fixed mine by mounting kids skis under them.out of the 2 i have one has a windbreak thats brand new and the other the poles and windbreak were missing.ive never set up the windbreak but keeping it.

Thanks for the comments, rdhammah and Dr. Speckler.   Most likely later this fall/winter, more ice fishermen will be on this site.  Hopefully, someone will have an original Wind Break.  Currently, I am making one out of black fabric that Frabil recommended, using wooden poles.  It will not have the Frabil logo.  I appreciated the comment about wearing on the bottom and using skiis.  I made a Smitty Sled several years ago, so that would be easy to accomplish, if needed.  Again, I thank everyone for help in locating an original wind break. All my best to you and all.  Coyote
