Rated 5 out of 5 by AQHA Sturdy, functional, easy to use
The Hi-Tech Chip'n Dip Ice Skimmer is perfect for keeping a water hole or bucket free of ice and slush. Is easy to use and long enough to ensure your hands stay dry. For the price it is a great bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cvettrus Hi-Tech Makes WI Proud
Let me say that I am a fan of Hi-Tech products, made in Wisconsin. They make some of the most innovative ice fishing gear on the planet, and this is no exception.
It's solidly constructed, which makes my heart beat a bit faster. It feels like a quality tool in your hand.
The skimmer is just the right size for my 8" holes, and the spud on the end is great. No need to carry my hand-forged spud around along with a scoop. In cold weather it is nice to be less encumbered and to keep one hand free in case you slip on the ice, LOL.
So when I check my tip-ups, I can simply carry this skimmer/spud with me.
But one last thing is fabulous about it. There's a built in ruler on the handle, which helps me a lot when I fish for pike, since there's a size limit here.
The rigid ruler is essential because the time spent finding a tape, taking off gloves to use it, etc. can compromise the life of the fish. This way one can check it quickly without even setting the fish on the ice--and that helps to keep from affecting the slime layer on one side of the fish.
I really think this is a wonderfully constructed and designed product.

Perforated skimmer is attached to the handle by OK rivets. Rattles a little, but seems to be attached securely. The chisel is clearly welded on and polished, maybe OK for very light work. Overall solid handle and skimmer for the price. Would recommend.
