Does anyone have an opinion on the above hives?
I understand they are not prebuilt, therefore requiring of assembly.
I was wondering if anyone uses them and what they think of them before i splash out.

I think @Finman has some experience with them so, perhaps, he can comment.
Don't be put off by the assembly though. It's usually just push-fit (some use PVA glue too but it's not really necessary IMHO).

6 to 8 Langstroth jumbos, a few Langstroth and National nucs.
I have a 4 frame poly nuc made by them.

In regular use: no issues.

Yes i've watched his videos on them and he seems reasonably pleased with them.
I do tend to treat paid promotions with a degree of scepticism though; wisely i think.
I like the Dadant brood box and their nucs too so may buy one of each for a try out.
I'm getting a little long in the tooth for wood these days.
