    Strike - Lite is AWESOME!!

    Sounds like you need a new blade on that Jiffy! Have had my Strike-Lite for 3 weeks. Drilled around 75 holes. So far it is excellent in EVERY way.

    Which Ice Auger do I buy?

    Just remember to let them warm up good. I see guys on the lake fire them up and want to cut holes right away. And again on the oil/ old SM liked it 40:1. Not sure about the new 2 strokes though. If in doubt call SM and ask for CY. You won't get put on hold for an hour and he'll give you the straight answer. Alot of guys have gone to AMzoil and swear by it. There's some threads on that topic too.

    Plowing your way out

    I buy the plow, and plow a road away from where you fish. Like bunching flies.

    Nils Augers Made in the USA! really?

    My ancestors aren't from finland...Norway, Germany, and Denmark Actually I'm sure the Nils are great. I just happen to have good luck with the SM's and I'm trying out the new Strike-Lite this year. So far it's been awesome. I do try to buy as much as I can USA, but it's getting harder and harder all the time. As for the Raps...I've got a few(boxes)!

    Ya that's my "old one". He even got my old Marcum. The new Strike-Lite is even better. I see you're a PO in Moorhead? My first cousin is a Sarg up there...Steve L. Isn't Cliffy a cop there too?

    SM doesn't offer new 224's anymore. k&k Sports handles refurbs I believe.

    Nils Augers Made in the USA! really?

    I suppose I could have bought a Nils, but I chose to keep some of the money home. Hardly anything is totally US made anymore, but every bit helps.

    SM Strike-Lite. Lighter,smoother running and cutting,fast as anything,quieter,cleaner,straight gas, and best customer service if needed. Oh and did I mention LIGHTER?! 5 lbs is HUGE difference. The guys who say they don't like the plastic handles and auger probably are abusing/mishandling it. The $525 hurt more at the cash register, but I forgot all about that after using it on the ice the first time. SWEET!

    Someone wouldn't really do this would they?

    My guess is someone smurfed in the hole.

    Lowrance 522c for ice fishing?

    I like my Lowrance cause others can't get too close to me. I've owned both Vexilar and Marcum. I wont go back.

    Crazy Vexilar noises!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Noise is the main(but not only) reason I don't own a Vex anymore.
