Jiffy Stealths

5 posts in this topic

I am curious how this auger works. I am thinking about buying a new Jiffy before next season. Since, my jiffy that I currently run which is 20 years old needs a little work I am starting to get some pretty good blow by. So am wondering what everyone who has one of this type auger liked them. I am trying to decide whether to get on or if it is worth if for me to fix it. Actually I will probably do both. Also I am not interested in a Strikemaster so I don't want to hear any comments on them since I am a Jiffy guy through and through you wouldn't be able to convince me to get one anyhow. Thanks.

I have had a Jiffy Legend 2 HP for 2 seasons now. It is perfect. I don't have the Stealth blade, but I do have the Teflon coated DeIcer blade they offered at the time I bought mine. The new blades have a larger center cutter instead of just a centering point. I have never been diappointed in the way mine cuts.

Thanks for the info on the Legends. I know all about Legends, Models 30, etc. I just want to hear from someone that has used a Stealth. I don't care if it is a 2 or 3 hp I am just more interested in what they thing of the drill itself. I would only buy a 3 hp anyways. Thanks

My girlfriend(now Fiance, for obvious reasons) bought me a 9" 3hp Jiffy Legend Stealth for Christmas. I love it. I went on 4 trips way up north this winter and it was the only auger we brought on the last 3 after lugging another one around on the first on. It is very reliable and you almost have to lift the auger up while it cuts because it pulls through the ice so fast. It is not as fast as a Strikemaster lazer, but 3 or 4 seconds is not really going to make that much difference for me. It is the easiest auger I have ever drilled a hole with. It makes me laugh when I see other guys laying and jumping on their augers to get them to cut. Highly recommended. Easily the best auger I, or any of my fishing buddies have ever used.

My wife bought me the Legend 3 horse with 8" blade. It is the first auger I've ever owned but I have done a little research after getting it. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I got to use it for several trips this year and it cuts thru the ice like a hot knife thru butter. The strikemaster folks will complain about the wobble etc. etc. I called Jiffy because mine does this too, but it's supposed to! Also, the gear box is quality made and does not need to be greased. Very easy upkeep. I would highly recommend one, nothing but a sturdy, quality built machine.

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though. No use debating, though.      You guys would make me walk out first, wouldn't ya?      O this stupid merge junk....$#@! son of a 
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
