... and that’s what we did.

“What you talkin’ bout Ian?”

Okay, I’ll start from the beginning...

Eighteen months ago, I purchased a Black Wolf Turbo 300 tent, which has been good for us. I noticed a couple of weeks ago, on the Black Wolf web site, that the new model tents now have cast alloy knuckles, instead of the plastic ones, and cast alloy feet, as well as a re-inforced top hub.

I thought I’d give my camping store a call, and find out how much it was going to cost me to upgrade with new bits, if I could.

“Oh, it’s a free upgrade, and we have a kit here in stock if you’d like to come by and collect it!”

How cool is that???

Got the kit, and had it all changed over in less that one hour.

Like I said... us wolves gotta....

David, I must admit, I was stoked.

The Turbo 300 has been great.

I was always under the impression that the Oz Tent stuff was really up there, and all good.

I am sure that they will surely come to the party.

Oh... btw... I'll ask.... why?

The Oz tent has, in my opinion a couple of design flaws. We had used it once when

1. the plastic bit at the top of the tent pole for awning broke at the point where they had been centre popped. The alloy pole is 'popped' in a couple of places to hold the plastic insert in, This results in the plastic breaking.

2. The pole bent making it difficult to slide in and out, as the alloy is now galled. Silicone spray helped fix it a bit. There was no wind, maybe someone tripped over the rope, but I don't know of anything that happened to bend it.

3. The velcro fasteners for doors windows and frames (there are heaps of them) catch on the fly wire windows and doors, tearing holse in them (6 holes in forst use)

Very dissapointing for such an expensive tent.
