'Frontier' Wooden Tip-ups
« on: Dec 26, 2007, 05:29 PM »
Anyone have any 'Frontier' wooden tip-ups?  Not sure if 'Frontier' is the name of the model of the tip-up or if it is the manufacturers name.  Came across them last year and they looked decent.  Trying to locate some.  They are a wooden cross style tip-up with a large adjustable plastic spool that has an adjustable drag.  VEry similar looking to a Heritage tip-up.  Was wondering if the are any good.  Anybody have experience with them?

I like the thought of adjustable drag

I have half a dozen or so of the Frontiers.  They're a decent heavy duty tip-up.  We use them mainly for pike.  They're great in deep snow and if you're on a tight budget cheaper then the Heritage Lakers.

Hunter,

How are the reels on them?  Smooth?

I lubed mine up with blue lube and haven't had any problems.  Turn nice and free.
