Looking for any kind of info on dillon blinds. I've seen some reviews, but anything is helpful! Seems like it is the best bang for the buck, what do y'all think?

I'm coming to the same conclusion. A bunch are close though.

Take a look at t-box. I like the shelf at the window and one above for storage. Also came carpeted.. I want to say the 4x6 was in the $850-$900 range...

I have hunted out of the Dillon half hex blind and thought it was very comfortable for 2.. I also like the smaller windows that one offers.. very durable stand, holds heat well. Think itís aroud 7 years old now and no issues.. just put a coat of paint on it every couple years.

Only knock on them I've ever heard is about the wooden floors, hear reinforcing those is key but maybe if just on the ground like any wood floor would be. Other than that, I hear they are a solid product and a bit less than Redneck, Atascosa, BitterCreek or Ranch Kings.

Supposedly Dillon started using composite floors this year.
One the neighbors in Blanco co has 2 they've been there a long time probably some of the first made, they haven't had any floor issues they're on about 4' - 6' towers/stands.

Idk how much the Dillon's run but my dad bought a 5x5 all seasons blind and I like it a lot after helping him set it up but I've never hunted out of it

Dillons are ok for the $, but I feel Boss is a better long-term investment. Dillon's biggest weak point used to be the wood floor. It would rot out eventually, and you have to have the new floor glassed in by someone. I hear they have fixed that now. There are other areas where they go cheaper, which allows them to have a lower price:

Doors: Dillon used to use a fiberglass door. Was not as durable, nor did it seal as well as an aluminum door. Didn't offer a locking option either.

Wall thickness: Compare the thickness. Dillon's walls will run about 1/2". Boss Game Systems will by more like 1 1/4". The difference is in the insulation, which provides not only warmth but sound deadening.

Attachments: All of Dillon's latches are screwed in, whereas Boss's are riveted.
