Design History

Zimmy has been working on the design, manufacturing, and testing of these Tip Ups since 2017.  Frustrated by low quality products, he purchased and used, he wanted to make a better product. He purchased a 3D Printer and a manual mill attempting to make a better designed Tip Up. These Tip Ups have gone through multiple iterations - each part has been refined multiple times over the last several years and will continue to be improved.  Zimmy's Tip Ups havs been tested throughly on Lake Sherwood, Rainy Lake, Devil's Lake and Lake of the Woods among others. Zimmy has received a lot of feedback and input from his fishing friends many of whom are Engineers.
