HT Enterprises Ice Master 2 in 1 Deluxe Tip Down offers a visual signal of a fish strike. An ice/rod reel combo is balanced on the wire frame, when a fish strikes, your rod tips forward alerting you to a bite. The shape of the holding frame prevents the rod/reel from falling to the ice. When the combo is balanced properly, even the slightest bite is shown by movement of the rod. HT Enterprises Ice Master 2 in 1 Deluxe Tip Down creates less resistance to the fish than a typical tip-up. The Ice Ma...

Alaska Piker
Affordable rigs   (from prior model)
Pros: Easy setup and takedown, affordable, lightweight, big spool w/drag
Cons: Spools can crack in cold if jarred
Best Uses:
Comments: Used these for over last four seasons pike fishing multiple holes. They are affordable, durable, and fairly easy to set-up. Use by Grandkids and bumpy snow machine trails into lakes we fish have been challenging on them...of thirty plus rigs, have cracked spools on two of these during the past four years. Would recommend the larger spools for pike fishing and buying replacement spools(s) at initial purchase.

Pros: Easy to use works great
Best Uses: Ice fishing
Comments: I have used these tipups for years in all condistions and they always work. I live in northern MI and have fished lakes that you really never know what you will catch. I have used heavy line and light line and theses tipups work well with all types on line. I have Iced anything from a 3' perch to a 42 northern pike to a 8lb brown, never doughted the tipup.

Cheap Orange Tip up but Decent   (from prior model)
Pros: Easy To Transport, Big spool wdrag, Easy to see, Durable, Good value
Cons: Cheap materials, Poor Construction
Best Uses: Ice Fishing Deeper water
Comments: When I got this I modified it by putting a new orange cloth flag on the spring pole to replace the plastic sticker. Also I added some stainless steel washers on the spool to make the drag slide more smoothly. I did catch a 33" nothern pike the first time I used it.....

Works great and affordable (from prior model)
Pros: Durable, Sensitive, Hi Viz, Easy To Transport, Lightweight
Cons: Smallish spool, Not tall
Best Uses: Large Fish, Small Fish, Within 100 yards
Comments: These tip-ups are worth twice the money, but luckily for us they are very affordable. Ive used versions (no drag) of this tip-up for around 20 years, and Im still using the original ones I purchased. Ive even had one (mostly) run over by a kid on a snowmobile and it DID NOT BREAK. Ive caught loads of fish on these, from pike to brook trout. They arent idiot proof, so you need to use common sense when packing them up. The biggest thing is to loosen the wing nuts up enough to fold them up. If you dont they will squash the plastic tabs. Removing ice from the cross members helps a bunch too. To avoid large amounts of wind trips, simply dont pull out the flag to full length thus having more tension on the mechanism. This is how to control the sensitivity. You can also slightly bend the trip arm down with pliers to make sure the flag trips consistently. These tip-ups are kind of short, so I keep them within 100 yards of my eyeballs. Being black, and having bright orange flags they do stand out nicely against the snow though. After almost 20 years of use I replaced the fading flags with neon green vinyl. No swelling, no warping (unless you melt them on a heater), and nearly no worries. Light as a feather too. Small diameter braid gives you more yards on the spool in case you have one run a mile. If you take care of them, they will take care of you. Im sure if you have common sense you will like these tip-ups. I love them and will keep adding more to my basket when the wifes not looking.Fish on!

HT tip-up   (from prior model)
Pros: Durable
Cons: Poor Construction
Best Uses: Small Fish
Comments: These aren't the top of the line tip-ups, but they will do the job. I had alittle trouble with one of the flags not wanting to lock in place, but after some adjustment it worked. I only get to ice fish a few times each year, we don't always get ice, and because of that I bought the less expensive tip-ups. If I ice fished alot I would purchase a higher quality tip-up, but these worked ok for what I needed.

youll be sorry (from prior model)
Pros: Dirt cheap
Cons: Poor desiegn, Poor Construction
Best Uses: Paper weight
Comments: I wouldn't give these to my worst enemy but then what do you expect for this price. 1)The trip mechanism is lousy and may or may not trip when there is a fish on (good luck trying to adjust them) 2) They wind flag way too easy 3) The line stinks its all twisted up. Right out of the box if you pull off 6 feet of line and let go it turns into a giant twisted ball of knot.(yes I use a swivels) Do yourself a favor and buy a real tip up you will be much happier. I threw these things away and bought real ones and love the new ones

Last years order better   (from prior model)

It works decently for the price   (from prior model)
Pros: Durable, Affordable, Easy To Transport
Cons: Poor Construction
Best Uses: Small Fish, Large Fish
Comments: Definitely worth it for the price. Comes with some line on the spool, which I had to replace. The wing nuts on the legs are cheap and tend to strip out. The drag works well. The flag design is prone to wind tripping and is sometimes hard to keep behind its catch.

Wood is not always better. (from prior model)
Pros: Durable, Easy setup and takedown, Easy To Transport
Best Uses: Small Fish, Large Fish
Comments: These tipups are made of plastic and will outlast wooden ones. They can't rot or swell, and screws won't wear through. They also have grooves so all arms lock in place. Only minus is it's hard to replace a staple if one pops or breaks.
