Best Hand Auger

5 posts in this topic

I need a hand auger to pack in for trout fishing, what is the lightest and easiest to use? I will have to slide it in 3 miles on a closed road at Mammoth. Spudbars any good?

Robber,
I just bought a Strike Master Lazer 6" on Saturday. I have never tried any other brand before but this one seems real light and cuts unbelievably fast/easy.

robbor - Check out the Nils master high velocity auger. I have a Mora thats retired forever and a 6 inch Lazer plus a 6 inch Nils. The Nils definatly cuts easier and better. The 2 handed design once gotten used too is the cats meow. Much easier cranking with two hands instead of pushing with one and cranking with one. I believe that Cabelas carries the Nils???? Plus it has a handle that easily folds up for packing....

Dark Cloud, you beat me on the Nils Master auger, they are the best out there! Cabela's sells them under HT high velocity auger. I think a rep will be there from Nils Master at the ice show and can look and both the hand and the new power auger out this year, Suppose to be a sweet machine.

    • I gave up trying to watch it. I think the guys dog filmed it with a Go-pro strapped to his head. 
    • Bernie has not a lick of common sense. He appeals mainly to those fuzzy-brained dreamers and of course that includes many of today's youth,   who despite having great school systems, cannot learn much more than how to operate a cell-phone. A thoughtful politician can dream when he's having a snort or sitting in a duck blind or golfing but when the tires hit the road he's gotta function within some realistic parameters.  Bernie can't do that. Nothing personal Bernie, but it's time to go home and sit down-the election is over and nobody will be interested in you next time.
    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
