STABILicers

Recommended Posts

For any fisherperson that is tired of slipping on the ice these STABILicers are the ticket. Over the years I have slipped and fell and always had a hard time getting around on glare ice. I have used numerous different types of cleats and they were ok.

This year I started to use a set of STABILicers and after using them for a month now, all I can say is these cleats are the cats meow. With all the cleats or studs from the front to the rear, I can walk and pull my Otter Lodge without slipping at all.

Anyone that is looking to cure thier foot slippage problems, just click on the link below.

Man after my spill on the ice tonight I think I need a set of these. God it is amazing how hard ice is blush.gif. I don't know if my back can take to many of them in a year.

I've used a few different types of traction devices and they are all better then nothing. I was a bit skeptical about the STABILicers because they don't have long cleats like the others do.

My daughter plays hockey, that means dad(me)is on the flood team. I'll pull out 200' of hose off the reel while the other guys are slipping and sliding around. Seen some nasty falls too. I can't say how much a good set of cleats is worth.

The thick Vibrom soul and more then enough cleating make for rock solid footing on icy uneven surfaces and with all that hard pulling I've never thrown one off or ever lost footing.

STABILicers are my favorite by far.

this year, with the lack of ice.. I have almost felt that my Stabilicers have been my most important piece of equip. I hate to fall, when your a kid you can laugh it off.. When you start to get old, its not as funny anymore.

Dangit Dietz if your old and not a kid anymore then I must be ancient and your grand dad . Tell us the real truth lad and that your just a wee bit clumsy or un co-ordinated . LOL grin.gif

Yes I've been down on the ice a time or two myself or is that three or more over the years and she be a tad unnerving when you have a 3 hp Jiffy's handles popping you a good one in the jaw on your on your way down and still spinning at ice level but good ol boxers with heart don't stay down for long and then they go out and buy some cleats so they stay up and attem even in the clinches . smirk.gif

I love my STABILicers. I think they're the best thing going out there for ice traction. The Vibram sole in combination with the replacable studs, means you probabley won't need a new pair for quite some time.

As I gaze out the window this morning....it now appears like I may need to break out the snowshoes laugh.gif!

With the warmer weather we're going to be seeing, it'll be time to break out the Stableicers again. I used these for early ice and am quite impressed with the durability and performance of these cleats.

I had mine on for our run & gun weekend on Upper Red Lake last weekend. Lots of slippery, bare ice out there in between the snow drifts.

I have to agree these are the best. My Stabilicers are built in to "NEOS" overboots and it is great just to slip them over the work boots and go a fishing. The girlfreind has the pull-over type and neither of us has slipped...yet.

Can someone advise as to the sizing? I wear a size 13 LaCrosse Ice King (which has a fairly large footprint) and was wondering if XL is large enough or should I go with the XXL? confused.gif

If I were you I would go with the XXL...I have size 13 and have the XL's and kinda wish I had the XX... the XL's do work, but I think the XXL would fit better. I wear the big sorels.

Cheeser:

I would call up 32north at 207-284-5010. They'll be able to give you the best advice for that boot. Think about going XL with extender straps that you can add/remove. This will make the Stabilicers more applicable to several types of boots, esp. smaller ones you might use for early/later season ice. Your Ice Kings will wear out before the Stableicers do, so plan on having these for awhile!

You will definitely need the XXL. I wear the Lacrosse Extreme PFT in size 13 and the XXL just barely fit. I liked the stabilicers so much that I bought another pair in size XL to wear on my smaller boots. They are worth the money, very comfortable to wear unlike some I have used and are built to last.

I believe all your testimonials have made a convert. I've had 4 didfferent kinds with limited success but no matter which forums you go to STABILicers are the one. Gonna get me some or else start wearing a football helmet after the last spill.

Appreciate the tip on sizing. I just got my XXL's and the XL sure would not have fit my 13 ice kings very well.

    • I hear ya. Although unlike CWD, I don't think there will be as much debate among different hunting groups about how bad the effects are and what, if anything, should be done about it.  Doesn't help the deer any, but at least it won't turn into debates/accusations/conspiracy theories that rival any political campaign. 
    • Great anything else?  Start the slaughter!  😠
    • does he need to?  Sounds like he put a whoopin on the boys in the one practice he showed up and played in...
    • This is not good news:   http://www.startribune.com/virus-new-to-state-s-deer-inflict-quick-and-suspicious-deaths-in-herd-near-twin-cities/497832721/   "Quick and suspicious" deaths of several deer this month in a captive herd south of the Twin Cities are being attributed to a virus never before seen in deer in Minnesota, state officials said Wednesday.   The Minnesota Board of Animal Health has confirmed the first cases of epizootic Hemorrhagic disease (EHD) in seven animals in a small herd of captive white-tailed deer in Goodhue County. There is no specific treatment or vaccine available in this country. Six of the deer died this month, the agency said, while a remaining buck "appears healthy at this time and is showing no clinical signs associated with this disease."   While this is the first detection of EHD among deer in the state, it is widespread across North America. There are no known health risks to humans, the Board of Animal Health said.   EHD has previously been detected in two Minnesota cattle in southern Minnesota — in Brown County in 2012, and Murray County in 2013.   "This virus is transmitted between deer by biting midges, or gnats, which are most active in the fall before they are killed by the first frost of the season," said Dr. Mackenzie Reberg, senior veterinarian with the Board of Animal Health. "These bugs can't travel far on their own, and we're concerned by this detection because the herd owner hasn't moved deer onto the property for several years."   The "quick and suspicious deaths of the animals," as the agency's announcement characterized them, alarmed the owner, who worked with a veterinarian to submit tissues from the carcasses to the Iowa State Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory for investigation and confirmation.   Many deer species may be infected with EHD, but white-tailed deer are highly susceptible and experience high rates of mortality. Most die within 36 hours of clinical signs, which can include fever, anorexia, lethargy, stiffness, respiratory distress, oral ulcers, and severe swelling of the head and neck.   The Board has notified the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources of the newly confirmed cases.
    • Not so Young dumb and full of............   Anymore?  😜
    • I think Negan should be in a cell that has a couple walkers in a cell on each side. lol
    • So, is Butler playing in the season opener? Has he even practiced, other than that one infamous time?
    • 2 episodes in, and I don’t have much of anything to complain about. Not great episodes by any means, but not bad either.
    • Good luck to you all. Sounds like a great trip.
    • Thanks Scoot!  Yes, we have our bear spray, brought a couple extra cans to keep in our packs besides what we have our on hips.   Hopefully it remains there the whole trip. Going to try and keep this updated during our trip. My son is taking video production class in school, hopefully he can put something together when we get back. Signing off for now, going to have lunch with the wife before I head home, grab the last cooler and pick my son up from school!
