Upgrade tent help

Hi grower,

I have a normal silver lined 80x80 tent but want to upgrade to a 1.2x1.2 or 1.2x2.4... to be honest 1x2x2 would be best but cant seem to find that as a tent measurment..

 

I want to go white walled but can only find budbox and homebox with them, budbox zips look cheap and nasty and the homebox looks slick but bit on the dearer end , any other alternatives?

I would seriously not get budbox I got budbox pro 1.2x1.2x2 and just set up and zip broke rang shop were I got it from and they said they are in touch with budbox as a guy has had exactly the same problem mine has he thinks they might of had a bad batch but I'm not so sure I am going to be getting sent a replacement but if I could go back maybe would do more research 

 

Just my novice 2p worth atb mate

They look like cheap backpack zips, monkey metal dipped in plastic. Its the only thing i really am not sure about. Honestly i really want to go white walled but i want quality for the money they want, doesnt seem to be enough of them about for how much theyre raved about!

I have a Budbox Pro 80x80 and I love it more than my first-born.  No zip problems and no light leaks. Lots of outlets and a green viewing window... I'm extremely happy with it!  The only aspect I'm not happy with is the passive intake areas are far too big to be used properly, they're complately redundant.
