new pike tip-ups
« on: Aug 25, 2020, 06:06 PM »
Got in my new Pike/Bass large tip-ups for this year I have tried them all and settled on Heritage Lakers but I really like these. Big 500 foot brass spool. Over 3 feet wide and also over 3 foot high flag. I love the Polar rail style so you can see the fish running and these have this in an extra large tip-up. I also love the free flowing line guide so fish can pull which ever way it wants. It has a unique wind trip where the flag attaches that allows you to set various trip settings. It's kind of a high bread tip up with the best of all worlds. May be selling my Lakers.

@Papa Sly: Did you find those locally or online. Don't seem to be very common and are not shown on the HT website.
To fish or not to fish? That's a stupid question!

Lookin' for the real deal. I did find a couple places online but not very high profile shops.

Nope. It's the Arctic Bay model (ABT-500). Has a shaft/spool assembly like a regular Polar but on sticks with a spring flag. Interesting they were not listed in the current catalog. Must be discoed. I mebbe better grab what I found before they disappear forever. Looks like just the ticket for those far away sets or deep snow.

It's for bluegills and I'm using a hybrid copolyfilament line with an adjustable single hook in case I run into pike.

Just opened the box on triplets of these today (thanks Papa)! Gotta say that pics didn't do these rigs justice. Folds up just short of 32" but very compact for what is there. Not too different from other stick type tippys. Ain't no way these things would ever go down a 10" hole. I can see a couple of mods already: an extra staple to stabilize the flag spring near the top, I'll be polishing the inside of the line guide and probably make an arbor enlarger to reduce line capacity while retaining a full spool. No way I need 500 feet of line.

I'll still be a primary Polar user but for deep snow like the last coupla years or a long distance set they'll be key players

Gotta love IS for all the varied ideas. FWIW, these have been discoed; I checked directly with HT. If'n you think you might want one or more better jump when you find 'em. I found two places but the best price wasn't passing the site certification and did not have secure purchase options. I ponied up and extra $6 per and did business with Johnny's Pond where Papa Sly got his. They also did not have a secure purchase portal but did have a Paypal option so that was good enough for me. Prompt and secure shipping.  :thumbsup: :clap:

I think I am going to cut the line guide with a drummell and then polish the entire thing so you can slide the line in and out earies. I like the extra staple idea also.

The hole in the line guide looks HUGH ..looks like you could put a tuna treble through there.

It is its a very large line guide but I like to take out of the guide to wrap the line so a small slot would help. or just a big clip like the other Polars have.

I can see that especially packing up after a long cold blustery day ..I do like the Polar line guide
