We were fishing out at Devils Lake State park and we lost one tip down rod and we broke another. We have the Sure Strike Tip Downs. Anybody know where I can get 2 more rods about 32 inches in length? Thanks.

Just got my CrappieGuy tipdowns in the mail yesterday. I've had friends make them. Watched them mess around with the design and balance all day on the lake. For the time and effort it's not worth the headache. I like to make my own stuff as much as I can but for 22 bucks it's not worth it. Drop him a line at the number he provided here. You'll have them in a few days, ready to fish right out of the box. Nice clean setup.

Thanks for all the positive comments guys.  Sorry I recently moved to the eastern side of the state and have not been on here in a while.  Busy working on the house now that I'm retired. 


I'm still making Tip Downs, you can call or text me 715-379-2376.  Again thanks for the great reviews.

Yes I am still selling them, but the frames are now PVC, same design but no more wet wooden frames to dry out.

Anyone know if crappieguy is still selling tip downs?  I messaged him a while ago but haven't heard anything back.  Might try the sure strikes from fleet farm if he stopped selling them.

Crappies' Tip downs come with a cord attached to the rod. The fish can't pull them in. That is of course if you use the cord. I have a buddy that didn't use it and lost the rod. He also doesn't put a pin through the hole to lock the hitch on his trailer. That should tell you something....... Mrt.

If you are concerned about losing rods I recommend a new tip-up called the Finicky Fooler. You use a rod and reel combo and leave the bail open. The trigger can be set very sensitive for panfish and you can reel your fish in. I've already forgot to leave the bail open and had a pike hit and the fish did not pull the rod out of the holder.

I agree. Bought some of Crappie guys tip downs a few years ago. They are very good. They are better and cheaper than I could have made myself. Mrt.

Save yourself the trouble of experimenting and buy Crappieguy's rigs.

Best deal best balanced set up and I've tried all kinds.

Hands down his are the best!
