Fishing Gear: Mr. Heater Buddy Flex

Mr. Heater Buddy Flex

Description and Application: The next generation of Buddy heaters is here with an innovative and incredibly effective propane heating system. The 11,000 BTU high performance, omni-directional mesh burner provides high intensity radiant heat in a full 180-degree spread. With an integrated gas-powered accessory control and a quick-connect assembly rail system, you’re safe and ready to go in any weather condition. Mr. Heater’s trusted Advanced Safety Direction System, including: Emergency Low Oxygen Safety System, Apex 50-degree Tip-Switch and Thermal Shut0-Down System, you can operate it with confidence. The unit also features a wind barrier and pilot shield when warmth is required in windy conditions. There are left- and right-side accessory doors that feature battery doors, and Gas Accessory Quick Connect port to connect the Buddy Flex Cooker.

Staff Perspective: I’ve owned a Buddy heater for user, put 100,000 miles on it without fail, but this new Flex is pretty cool creating the kind of heat needed to spend an entire day or night on the ice. It’s unique design kicks out comforting heat in several directions so all participants can warm up. I also love the cooker option that can be purchased separately, for the option to cook hot food or make coffee. There’s a pile of good uses for the Flex, and they are worth the investment.
