Not sure if this has been posted in here or not. Looks pretty cool and different from most others.

I just ordered one I'll let you know how it is when I get it .

That piscifun inline spool diameter at 1.77 inches comes in at roughly 45 mm and is still larger than most fishing reel spools.  Considering low profile baitcasting reel spools are about 34-36 mm roughly under 1.5 inches.  While many of the small ultra light open face spinning reels have a spool lip diameter from 36 to 42 mm in size.  That's roughly just above that 1.5 inches in diamter.

Very interesting inline reel.

Well being somewhat a St. Croix fanboy.  The Mojo Ice rods got updated this year.  The foam handles and grey blanks looks great and feels lighter then the previous version.  Not that I need any new ice rods.

Still wish they would just make some reel seats on some of their Custom Ice rods but alas naaahhhh...

I wish VMC would re-launch their full plastic line instead of doing these pre-rigged jigs.

x2.  I miss those mustache plastics.  I have got a few things of trigger x plastics left but not many (and at this point it's mainly the styles I never use)

Yep, same here. I really liked the waxtail plastics and have some packs of mustache worms left. On the bright side, it does force me to support some smaller companies and try their products out.

I'm not finding that review. Got a link by any chance? Nevermind, I found it looking manually. The search engine here sux.  :-\

I have one coming myself.  It's delayed, because they oversold the red left-hand retrieve on Amazon, so I had to settle on the gold instead.  Oh well. Should be here next week, but been trying to find reviews in the meantime.

Some cosmetic changes and new size offerings ..$179.00 for BIBS AND JACKET

https://icerunnerhouses.com/float-suit/


I took a chance and ordered one of these float suits.  At HALF price (or less) of the big name brands, it's worth a shot.  Seems pretty comparable to the Clam IceArmor Rise suit, possibly better materials.
Tight lines!

Please do a quick "open box review" upon arrival ...if you could also how it shipped ..UPS FedEx etc and speed/arrival time would be nice .  Although I dont need a suit it seems like a very nice cost effective alternative.

I'll try to remember.  They aren't due to ship until middle of next month.  I bet they ship UPS ground, considering shipping was free.

Great ..an on ice review would be great as well ..how well zippers ..Velcro ..pocket layout and overall functionality . I would defiantly steer guy this way with a little more input of ice anglers.  Pictures too ..as the web site and YouTube probably dont do the pocket layout justice .

I've had a round style for quite a while ..takes quite an abuse ...in/out of a 5 gallon bucket ..then last season on of the zipper pulls broke I just a  zip tie on it..for the price its quite a rough and tumble easy on the wallet case. Just bought another one last season for my back up unit .

Yeah I'm pretty excited about them. My only complaint with the K-rips was weight, so to double the weight but keep the same size is going to be huge!

I just got a couple of the items that you guys were talking about here:

8.5" Kdrill - feels like a 7.5", but bigger. Last year I had a 8" eskimo gas, and when I went with my Kdrill buddies it felt like I was fishing 6" holes more than 8" holes. bought a wheelhouse, so I wanted to go electric. Would have done a lite flite or a pistol if the 8.5" Kdrill wasn't a thing.

Picsfun ICX inline reel - feels nice and small. I feel like the line tension goes from "too loose" to "too tight" a little fast, but I'll have to play with it on the ice. So I accidently bought the right hand one first (returned it), and you can see that one against my 13 descent reel. The Picsfun feels way smaller, but a lot less plastic-y. It is basically all aluminum. The freefall trigger feels solid, and it drops just as fast at the descent, without the clicking. I'm excited to put a few fish on it.
