The unit will alert you with lights and sound when tipped. It will continue to signal until you turn it off - unlike a bell clipped to your rig. Never miss a strike again!
Four different colored light pipes are included in the package. Easily change colors, no tools required. You can fish with one color and your buddy can use another. It easy to know which tip-ups are yours.
Polycarbonate material makes these tip-ups super strong. We froze a base and then ran over it with a 4-wheeler and it didn't brake. Rest assured, these units can withstand the wear and tear of many ice fishing seasons.
Because you can use a traditional reel rather than a small spool like some tip-ups, you can set the drag. You can easily change reels that are loaded with different weight line.
The hood and nut reel holders allow you to place a reel anywhere along the threaded rod. If you want a light strike to tip the unit, place the reel slightly forward. If you want a heavy strike (or if using live bait), place the reel slightly back. You can also set the rig to "free spool" by wrapping the line around the rod tip twice and press the release on the spool.
You can remove the top piece from the base to jig or fight a fish. It's a whole new game to fight a fish without the bend of a rod. When you're ready to go back to a tip-up, just snap it back on the base.
The base features a built in tackle box. Always have extra tackle at each hole. The box is also a great place for your identification information. The base has a 20 inch ruler which is handy if you're fishing a slot limit species.
Innovation and technology. Our patented design means that there's nothing else like it on the ice.
We sincerely hope you enjoy our product. Please feel free to call if you have any questions.
