    Any of them will serve the purpose, but you do get what you pay for. I have used an EZ up for years with zero problems.

    My only recommendation is to get some heavy duty nails from Lowe's. Those tent stakes are weak and bend. The nails are probably close to a foot long and at least 1 inch wide. They are great for windy days.

    Is the bookstore the only place to get the tent with the GSU logo on it and everything. $250 is a lot of money....

    Flagsaver has them for $223, but they are sold out....

    I have this one in blue: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=8571900 Looks to be in about the same league Butler.

    Now entering it's 4th season at Paulson. It's also a veteran of 6 NASCAR races, a trip to Sebring and two children's birthday parties.

    But.....it's about dead. For $94 though.....can't complain.

    That one from K-Mart is an E-Z Up - Pretty good tent then? I really only have a need for one about 6 times a year (hopefully more this season or next when playoffs return to Paulson)

    I hope it doesn't bother you to use it 9 times this year.

    Yes go with quality over price, you get what you pay for, Ez Ups are good quality so you'll be fine. I'd also compare prices on Amazon and eBay or Sears may even have them.

    Well this particular tent doesn't have straight legs...they're angled out due to the difference in size at the top and at the base. But yes they do make a quality tent.
