I just put my new Picsfun ICX inline reel on my rod and it looks good. If you want to fish ultra light this is the way to go.
I only have one complaint about the design of the reel. The free fall lever is in a poor position. The line is almost touching it when it enters the reel making it hard to grab the lever without also grabbing the line. The lever could be more off set to the side of the reel.This will be a problem if you fish with gloves on. A rod with a very high stripper guide might solve this problem.
If you look a swinekicker's last photo you can see what I'm talking about.

Looks like 13 fishing has a bigger version of the freefall this year for gamefish

I also notice the pflueger inline reels don't have a trigger for free spooling, looks like they have a button similar to the old frabill 371s. Not sure how I feel about that. I was going to buy one, but the trigger was a nice upgrade from that push button on the 371s.
Da Pack!

I did see that the pfluegers were ambidextrous though! Look at how everything is lined up on center so you don't have to worry about buying "left hand" or "right hand" anymore. Overall, I don't think that they look overly impressive and I probably won't buy one, but I thought that was pretty cool.

Any one know the line capacity for any amount of pound test for the 13 Fishing Black Betty FreeFall XL Inline Ice Fishing Reel? Most websites do not show line capacity for a majority of the in line reels under specifications?

I just posted a thorough teardown of the Piscifun ICX inline reel HERE:thumbsup:

Seems to be a decent reel for the money, but pretty small.
Tight lines!

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.
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 .

Got an email yesterday about the Icerunner float suits, saying they are expected in port on Nov. 15, but that things have been slow going at the port, and they don't expect to be shipping them out of their warehouse until appx. Nov. 30.

That's about a 2-week delay. :(
