 hardwater diehard thank you for starting this topic thread always fun to see what new gear is coming out each season. The Fabrill tipup is an interesting design looking forward to any reviews posted by fellow Ice Shanty members who purchase and use them this coming ice fishing season.

That auger seemed to be wobbling. More than it should be.

Jiffy needs to give it up. Their electric auger was a huge failure. After seeing how big of a POS that was, I will never buy a Jiffy product.

Bought my first Jiffy auger and used it for 30 years with no problems. Then bought another Jiffy 2 years ago and I'm very happy with it and still have my old Jiffy as a backup. Always would recommend Jiffy!!

they all need to give it up.  cordless drills killed that market already.
real fishermen don't ask where you caught them.

 I also made the mistake of buying a Jiffy Electric. I ended up removing the battery (POS) and made a 15' extension cord and carry a 26ah battery in my jet sled. This only comes out when the ice thickness reaches a foot. I have a 8" finbore that takes care of all my holes in ice under a foot.

Holy moly. Why would you go through that trouble to drill a hole? Oh never mind, just seen your name is old caveman.

Interesting design, not sure how great that would work on windy days with no snow though, could see it blowing around easily since it sits so hi up.

That seems like a solution without a problem, given tape measures and ice scoops with inch markers on them have been around for decades. 🤨

So have spud bars 😉

Fishing with potatoes seems sorta silly 😏

I never heard a chisel called that before I moved down south, now it seems what everyone is calling them. I am thinking of starting to call my pen a coconut and see if it catches on 🤣

They were just always a chisel where I grew up. When I was a kid, my Dad didn't have an auger, so all our holes were chisel punched. I remember when he got an ancient spoon auger, and it being quite an upgrade from hand slamming holes in 3-4 feet of midwinter ice. He upgraded to a Mora a couple years after the spoon.

I wish I had the spoon, just a sentimental decoration, but I'm sure it got recycled into a car fender or something decades ago 🤣

 See now not everything is the same everywhere in the country of ice 😉
I still have my spoon auger , and my dad also used a spud AKA ice chisel to make holes 👍
 I need to get over to a couple reps I know to see what their companies have new this year

Back when I started to icefish for lakers seriously, thatís all we had was an ice chisel to cut a hole with in as much as 24Ē of ice. I thought I had ďdied and gone to heavenĒ when I got my first hand auger! I still use a spud bar, but mostly just to check new ice thickness for safety.

Jiffy has become a shadow of what they once were. The previous success is all that has been holding them up. Like so many companies.....they did well and something changed.....hopefully they get it turned around. Innovation is not something jiffy as seemed to do well with the last 15 years.

Same here, I use mine probing early and late ice, or on places that I've not been out on before, but not as a means of punching holes. I have done a few just to be able to say I have, but it sucks, even just through 6-8" of ice. I can't even imagine doing all my holes all winter like that 😬

I agree, spud bar as I walk, then I punch holes and just use the handle of my scoop to measure ice thickness.
