So my old Double Bull 360 is about to bite the dust. After about 20+ years there is no more glue or sewing that will save her :( I am looking at the "surround view 180". I hunt alone (archery and shotgun). Reviews have stated that it is on the smaller size. When I sat in the blind at Cabelas I did not think that it was that small. I will archery hunt turkey from the blind. Any thoughts on difficulty drawing back a bow for those that have this blind (or other dislikes with this blind). I would like to keep it on the lighter side when buying a blind. Lastly, are there "different versions" of the 180. Someone asked on Amazon if the blind was the "2018 version" implying that there maybe different versions. THANKS in advance. PS: if anyone out there has the "old version" of the T2... do you want to sell it :)

I have an old T2. Shot 4-5 deer out of it, through the mesh front. It’s in pretty good shape.

I have a 180.Nice but small.Definitely a one person blind and mine and most of their initial run are damn tough to put up/take down. I wouldn't go 360 for sure-movement can be seen.Frankly,I wouldn't even go 270.

I got the 360. Its good. If i had to change anything I would say they could use less of the one way fabric near the top of the blind. They could save money buying regular fabric for at least another 24" from the top then start the new style material. Its still great. I'm just nitpicking.

I wish they made a 180 the size of a 270. That'd be perfect.

I agree with so much of the above: 1: Hate the 270 and 360 view... lets in way too much light (to each his own). 2: Make the 180 the size of the 270 3: Yep, some fabric at the top. 4: Only from what I have heard... make the set-up a little easier.

THANKS for all the comments.
