I am going to replace my old scissor type with the strap on the toe and instep. I have seen a number of different ones in the market place. Have any of you traded in this style for the new ones. Your comments will appreciated
Thanks

I try not to wear them, but if I have too, I just use the cheap 4 point elastic ones.(instep type) Hate to have to take them off when I get into my shanty all the time, but for the walk out, sometimes they are a must.

sturge lake side and other bait shops sell the type that have bright green tubing, like slingshot tubing straps. they have 4 spikes on the bottom. I'm not sure of the name. poss someone else knows. but they are the only type to have. you can walk accross a parking lot and these things won't be hurt. They are easy to get on and off and work great on the slick stuff. A big pluss there affordable.

Polar Ice Creepers. I can't bend my knees and they are easy to get on and off. I wear them in the shanty too.

The green tube ones are the ticket, don't know the name, Polar Ice Creepers sounds right. EZ on EZ off. Scissor type ones are a pain in the a$$.

i'm pretty sure the green tube ones are called arctic spurs.

They work great, never have had a problem with them.

The ice cleats that Ed is talking about are called Artic Spurs, just bought a spare pair at Gander Mountain for $9.99. they work great. also most places charge as much as $17.00 to $18.00. Cabelas also sells then if your planning a trip to Dundee

See ya on the ice

I had the green tube ones fall apart after one season, It's like the adhesive didn't hold where the tube met the plastic inner sleeve! Anyone else ever have this happen?:mad:

Carp_ There's no glue that holds the tube . If it breaks or slips off. Just cut off the used or worn piece. Wet the object it slips over and slide it back on. wait a few days and it's all set to go. If you are in a rush to use them, you can wet them with rubbing alchol , slip them on and away you go.
