I tried it for the first time last year on a couple of my rigs and liked it alot. I decided to spool up the rest of mine for icefishing this year.

Follow the instructions in the booklet that comes with it such as using a mono "backer" to prevent slipping on a metal spool. You will probably want to leave some old line on there anyway just to take up space for ice fishing applications. You don't need 100 yds. of line on there.

It is hard to cut. clips/scissors won't do it. You'll need a sharp knife.

Holds a knot real nice and little or no stretch.

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
