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.

Great on warmer days   (from prior model)
Pros: creates action
Cons: other fisherman think you have a flag when the see it bouncing
Best Uses: warmer days when the holes don't freeze
Comments: I have used these for decades ,I even have an old orange one that has caught so many fish .Easily adjustable when you get used to them .The older ones are built better.If legal , use 2 minnows ( and small trebles) tied about a foot and a half apart it increases the catch rate.Great for warmer days when your holes don't freeze up

Pros: Flexible, Sensitive
Cons: Hard To Transport, Poor Construction, Difficult To Maintain, Breaks Easily
Comments: The idea the the Winlass tip up is great, and I have seen some modles out on the ice that were great, but not the these. Very poor plastic construction. I spent more time fooling with these then I did fishing with them.

Set & Catch   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Easy To Transport, Good Jigging Action, Durable
Best Uses: Ice fishing
Comments: The windlass tip-up the first time you set it up sets up a little hard. But once you get the hang of the way it works it's worth the trouble. The lakes we fish around here are not real deep 10 ft. or so. We put a windlass between my other tip-ups and i thank the action from the windlass helps them all.

I should have listened to the reviews   (from prior model)
Pros: Flexible
Cons: Poor Construction, Hard To Transport
Best Uses: Small Fish
Comments: I think with some fine tuning you can get it working good.Haven't caught fish on it yet.You need to use it close to camp and or above freezing conditions, always chipping away the skim ice.

Comments: I have two of these HT Windlass Tipups. The first thing I did was replace all the nuts and bolts with stainless nuts and bolts. The nuts and bolts that come with are very poor quality. The spools can be fragile as I broke one already. When setup properly the tipup works great and does impart a jigging motion on the lure/bait. I used the thin 20-30lb. vinyl coated tipup line on mine. The vinyl line has a bit of memory (coils) but still works well and trips smooth. With some experience you can set these tipups to work well even though wind gusts will flip them back from time to time.

Takes work (from prior model)
Comments: If you like messing with things this is the tip up, it certainly gives you something to do. If you live in an area of constant light wind speed and steady direction they work great. If not they keep you warm getting up for constant adjustments. Here in ND they work 20% of the time.

Great idea done poorly   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive
Cons: Breaks Easily, Cheap, Poor Construction
Best Uses: Ice fishing
Comments: I love the idea, works well, but built with the cheepest bolts, wingnuts, plastic, you can get. I pulled them out of the box to find stripped bolts. I'm done with HT Enterprizes if this is what the sell as "fishing equiptment". I can get wood stick tips ups that last forever for less $.

Best Uses: Large Fish
Comments: Caught lots of pike on these tip ups when others failed. Tie on 2 trebles and fish with 2 minnows (where legal!).Use nylon coated line and hole covers for cold days,great for warmer, sunny ice fishing.Have used and owned every style of tip ups ( spring tip ups, polar,round etc.)This one rarely strikes out.Play with the springs and try not to lose or over stretch them(don't fold tip up with springs attached).Keep the wind blowing over the metal wing enjoy!!

um looks like it will work well   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive
Cons: Difficult To Maintain, Poor Construction, Hard To Transport, Breaks Easily
Best Uses: Small Fish, Large Fish
Comments: this looks like it will work great i have 3 have not caught any thing on them yet but when have been able to use weather permitting ie: wicked wind, wicked cold. missed one bite cause line froze in hole,cons the up and down action is like the old ways of making candles, dipping style,when cold .i have not changed line to coated, to see if this fix's that . extremely cheap (poor construction)i broke one before even had chance to use it.(fixed) once it is set up it does move bait well. i would suggest trying 1 to see if it it suits your style or needs. i think under the correct type fishing average 30 or above these will out preform but haven't had a opportunity to use in these conditions i am not sorry that i bought 3 on the perfect days wish all 5 tip ups were these. ny state allows

great but it needs some fine tuning   (from prior model)
Pros: Flexible, Easy To Transport, Good Tip Action, Sensitive
Cons: Thumb screws are cheap
Comments: THE BEST TIP UP I,VE USED.. BUT.. THE THUMB SCREWS TO ADJUST IT ARE VERY CHEAP. I HAD TO USE PLIERS TO ADJUST THEM.. A REAL PAIN WHEN YOUR HANDS ARE COLD... WENT TO THE HARDWARE STORE AND GOT GOOD ONES.. STILL WORTH IT

Iiiiiiii Like it! (from prior model)
Pros: Good Tip Action, Durable, Easy To Transport, Sensitive
Cons: Does freeze in hole
Best Uses: Ice fishing
Comments: Really like these tip ups. There is minimal setup and some adjustment, but once said and done, I've found, will outproduce 3to1 at least over standard tipups. I use shinners (dead or alive) with a EC pre-rigged hook w/spinner blade. I find the extra flash from the spinner jigged by the wind is a plus! Just read the directions for proper setup(easy). Also remember to check the hole more often for freezups mainly on your line.
