i got 5 heritages that are 25 yrs old. I've replaced the flags and sometimes the trip plate but I've never had to regrease the trip shaft on them and never had one freeze on me even at -25-30f! they've took a beating but still work as good as new. polars are great but our deep snow limits us to taller tip ups.

THIS ^

Polar style are ok and relatively inexpensive but when you actually have snow on the ice you can't see the damn flags so stick type ones are in my mind a necessity.  My ancient polars sit in a bucket to loan out to family when they stop by. You'll hear a hundred guys go back and forth about heritage laker vs jack traps.  Both are excellent and last forever (my hl set is 20 years old never let me down).......jacks a bit better but you need to decide if they are worth the extra cash.
