Ice Grippers - they're the real deal!!

5 posts in this topic

Bought the Ice Grippers advertised on this site and they work great!! With the warm weather, the ice is getting slippery with the surface melt, put on my new grippers and I walked right along. Looks like they're well made too, they should last many, many years and the atachment straps were easy to use and held them on my boots tight. Granted, they're spendy, but I've tried some of the other kinds that atttach under your boot (uncomfortable) or some with the chains/rubber (they don't grip worth a darn on smooth, wet ice) - these grips are great and make the others look like junk! And the best part is they work! If I don't lose them, they should be the last pair that I ever own.

BLACKJACK,
I'm glad you posted this. I've been trying to tell folks for a long time that this is the absolute best set of Ice grippers available.

We always hear from those who haven't used these how good other grippers are. Fact is, I've tried them all and none compare. They either wear out to soon, have slippage and a host of other problems. If it has rubber or plastic, it's junk, no matter how good they work at first.

The Ice Grips are industrial grade ice grips originaly made for loggers who need to use them everyday along the icy rivers. They are built to last for many years, lightweight, and easy to put on and take off. They feel just like part of your boot....only they don't let you slide on the ice.

Am I right BLACKJACK????

I used to be one of those guys who said my ice cleats work just fine.I now have a pair of Ice Grippers and will never go back.These have cleats on the front and back of the boot so you cannot slip.They strap on easily and I am impressed with how well they stay on the boot.Others I have tried slip around on the boot and feel awkward.I even forget I am wearing my Ice Grippers.

I forgot I was wearing mine last night and drove home with them on. Thankfully no damage to the floor mats smile.gif I love those things, I feel like I could climb up the side of a building with them on. grin.gif

Hey Paul, that's happened to me a couple of times as well.

When you're on ice you feel like you're walking very solidly (especially if you're pulling a portable-these are a must have).

Absolutely no slippage and they're so light you feel like you're not wearing anything on your boots, the Ice grips are that snug.

    • They can sure humble a person. 
    • Well I tagged out this morning.   I got out later as my daughter and her family were over so I headed out after breakfast.  I drove by the field to see if there were any there so I could plan a route to the blind.   There was a fl8cknof Jake's and a flock of longbeards.  I quickly snuck into my blind and stuck a funky chicken decoy out.  As I was stepping into the blind the Jake's start clearing the trees between the blind and them.  They worked around out front a ways.  Suddenly I see 2 toms fly into the field.  The jakes immediately charged the toms driving them out of the field.  After that the jakes saw the funky chicked and headed over to check it out.  With the toms gone and time dlipoung away I picked one out and shot him at 30 yards.  He'll taste good on rhe grill this summer.   Got in the blind at 10 am and was done by 10:15 am.  It's been a long season. 
    • Fun in the yak today in SE SD caught and released a bunch of these today:
    • How can a bird with brain the size of a pea out smart us!
    • The 2 lakes i bass fish have slowed way down the last week.   A swim-bait ripple shad was hot ticket for a while but that is just a pike attraction right now.  Been switching to a Senko and helped a little.   Pads are coming up fast now and we should see a spike up in activity soon.  Cannot wait to throw the frogs soon as that is the biggest rush watching those eruptions in the water!!   Thanks for posting as i found it to be quite slower than usual also.   Which means i need to find better ammo during those times.  
    • Tomorrow we will be back at it
    • I am giving it a last hurrah tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been able to check in here much. I have hardly been able to get out this year between work, a baby at home, and a recent trip out of the country for a relative's wedding.    Last time I was out I had a real nice Tom within 20 yards after a very long standoff. I think I screwed it up by rushing myself a bit. He stood around 50 yards out literally strutting back and forth like someone had drawn a line in the mud that he wouldnt cross. He must not have wanted to fight with the strutter decoy we had out. He did that for 45 minutes to an hour and finally came our way after a hen led him towards us.    They came past us but were outside the decoys and angling slightly away from us. Then the tom turned and started angling straight at the strutter decoy. That meant he was basically quartering to me and when he was 15-17 yards or so out I drew because in the back of my mind i was thinking if he kept moving that way and past the decoy he would quickly be in a spot I would have had no shot.   In hindsight I think he had realized (once he got close enough) that he would have been able to whoop up on the decoy and he was coming in to do just that. I probably should have waited to see, but I didn't and right as I hit the backwall of my draw his head popped up on alert and he turned around and walked straight away knowing something wasn't quite right. I could have easily shot at him at 20 yards but he was facing away and I just didn't feel comfortable. I am confident I would have hit my mark but I didn't like shooting at something walking straight away when I am not experienced with bow hunting turkeys.   I know some people will say that I should have shot, but I have been bow hunting for awhile and never wounded anything because of a poor shot or poor shot selection, so I didn't want that to be a first. Hopefully I get a shot at redemption tomorrow!
    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
