The Firehouse Tip-Up is compact, easy-to-use, and sets up in seconds. This ice fishing tip-up is highly visible and is constructed with high-quality plastic that resists cold temperatures. The entire system collapses into a small tube for easy storage and transport. Plus, a magnet on the inside of the tube secures and protects hooks, preventing the line from tangling during storage. Assembled in the USA, the Firehouse Tip-Up is a portable ice fishing tip-up great for mobile ice anglers.

Like the idea, too much friction when it’s in the hole and a fish grabs the minnow. I’ve tried a few things to get it to spool easier with no success. Lots of spit minnows so I went back to my cheap HT tip ups.
