Anyone have a Jiffy Legend Lightning?

9 posts in this topic

Stealth. Stealth. Stealth. I got a brand new, 3hp Jiffy Legend/Lightening with the Stealth cutting system for Christmas. I love it and so does everybody that uses it. Mine has a 9" hole and flies through the ice. I have been on three big(3 day) fishing trips up to the URL and Lake of Woods area with it and it cuts through thick ice fast. The first trip my buddy hauled his along and after fighting with his for four holes, he used mine after that. The other three trips we left all the other augers at home. It is a great auger that us actually have to hold up, instead of pushing down. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!

But the question I was most interested in is whether the D-icer armor works. Water freezes to my Lazer pretty quickly, so how does the Jiffy do in that category? Is the D-icer a Teflon coating? Teflon doesn't work for squat. I shelled out the bucks for a Teflon coated Jiffy slush spoon and the dang thing ices up as fast as the cheapos.

I bought a Jiffy Legend last year after X-mas with the D-icer armor. It still ices up some, but not too bad, the only places that really cause problems are when you get a cone of ice on the sides of the chisel point, or ice buildup in the opening by the blade. This only happens when you set the auger in the snow/slush after drilling a hold on a cold (<10 deg.). The slush/snow sticks and freezes to the wet bottom of the auger. If you're careful and set it down on its side after drilling, it generally isn't a problem.

Yes, the teflon does still ice up, but knocking the ice off is much easier with it on the auger. I also have one of their dippers, and it iced up too. Banging it on the ice got rid of it, but also tended to bend the handle back. Of course, that's not a problem any more because now I've got a BIG DIPPER!

Can you put these new stealth blades on an older jiffy auger that did not origionaly come with them? I have a Jiffy legend that is about 4 years old and I would like to put these stealth blades on if I can.

Thanx, Dave

Thinking about buying one, but was wondering how the D-icer armor and the Ripper serrated blades work. Does anyone know the difference between the Stealth and the standard D-icer Ripper head? Thanks.

Anyone know the weight of the Jiffy 2hp? I can get a real good deal on the Strikemaster Mag 3000, but didn't think I needed the extra weight. I have heard that the Jiffy's are a little heavier so if the 2hp is as heavy as the 3hp strikemaster I can get the strikemaster about 50 bucks cheaper than the Jiffy 2hp.

I have the 2 HP Legend Lightning with a 8" auger. I know it weighs 7 pounds less than a 3 HP model.

My Jiffy ices up only when it is -5 deg. It does not seem to effect the drilling though. Just makes a mess when it warms up in the back of the Yukon on the drive home. It is not nearly as bad as my buddies Strikemaster, though.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
