Tip up line markers

For years I've used small, red/white, clip-on bobbers to mark depth on my tip ups.

I've seen some advertisers selling shirt buttons, and have heard of people using the sliding foam bobbers you pin in place with a toothpick.  Has anyone tried the buttons, and are they easy to slide up/down?  Do you have a problem with them slipping and changing your depth?

Small alligator clips work best.  Clip it to your flag when your done.

I use the slip knot bobber stopper - the premium ones are the way to go!

I always use the little red white bobbers. They areasy to move sometimes i am fishing sallow some times 40 feet down. A button or bobber stop would take forever to slide that far

I use either a removable split shot sinker or a rubber-core sinker both works great

Small red/white bobbers, I find buttons to be a pain especially when I might go from 4ft of depth to 17ft. That's alot of sliding a button on line that is wet and freezing after a move. Bobbers fit in a pocket tackle box and go on and off with no hassle. 6 for 99 cents on amazon.

Hard to improve on a button. Once it's on, it's on for good.

You never lose it, forget it, run out of batteries for it, borrow it to your buddies, need to take your gloves off to move it, and parts are always in stock.

I have been using a bobber stop and bead which has worked great.

I make a little loop in the line at the depth I want. Take a match, slide it through the loop, draw it tight. Reel the line up to the spool guide. Set the flag. They’ll last all day.
