I purchased 5 as soon as the ice became walkable, and have been using these tip-ups at least 3 times a week.
I put 100' of 4# Eagle Claw Ice fishing line on the spools and caught dozens of gills, perch & LM bass up to 19".
Even with the 0* temps, these tip-ups performed flawlessly.
Place a very small 2 hole button or a slip bobber stopper on the line, before or above a small split shot & hook. Slide the button or stopper up and down the line to mark the depth.
Pros: Ease of use

|Not as good as expected...|
I purchased 4 Polar tip-ups and was very happy with them...easy to adjust the tension depending on the bait size, etc., but when I purchased the Blackhawk, it wasn't as easy to adjust the tension...I still don't know how to adjust the tension on it.
If it was like the Polar product, it would be EASY! It's a decent product, but I'm happier with the Polar product!
