Ice Shows and Augers

6 posts in this topic

I know this is kinda "Crystal Ball"ish but Fleet Farm has the Strikemaster Mag 2000 Power Auger 8 1/4" on sale for $289.99 until the 22nd. Does anyone know if I'll be able to find it cheaper at the Ice Show? Thanks.

I doubt you will find it for cheaper than that and if you do you will need to include the price you paid for parking and the ticket to get in, plus the other stuff you may buy. Pick it up from FF. If you go to the show and find it cheaper, then return it at FF.

Welcome. If you figure in gas, parking, food etc. you will do way better with the deal at FF.

I would still go to the show though. wink

I don't know if it matters, but usually when they are priced that low they are factory reconditioned. They carry the same full factory warranty and have a new auger on them. You can't tell the difference between a recon and a new one, some people are just get a bit funny about the reconditioned augers.

Oh I'll be at the show! You can count on that! smile I haven't made a big purchase like an auger in the past though and was wondering if they were discounted to that degree at the show. Thanks for the replies. I've been a "lurker" here for quite awhile but not a big poster... Not enough time in the day!

Big DS, I don't think this a reconditioned unit, normally if it was a recon it would be listed on the ad. If you look at the ad closely, it is listed as a "Strikemaster Magnum Plus. Never heard of this model before. Maybe it is a special model released by SM only thru FF, the SM site does not list it.

In the picture it looks like a Mag2000. $289 is tough to beat, especially with the cust service backing of SM.

    • LH...I repaired Shimano's for years, and this was a huge issue for the Stradics and the Sahara's, First, look at the bail and make sure that they are not out of alignment. I bet your problem is caused by one part (and it's the probable cause of both problems)..... To keep the bail from rotating on the cast (and snapping shut on you in mid-cast) there's a small friction ring inside the rotor. It looks like a heavy rubber band only it's made of heavy vinyl plastic. It's  actually called a "friction ring". When it goes bad it loosens up just enough to bind up your reel completely and the bail won't snap shut. Also check the round bail return spring with the smal 90* bend in it, that can pop out of the tiny hole (the "bent" end) and cause the bail to do literally nothing. If your bail actuator pin (your :latch") is bent/worn, that will do it, but unikey that it's worn down that much. Loosen up the bail center screws, and see if when they are loose the bail will return. If so, they may be bent/out of alignment. Takes some careful maneuvering to get them back to proper set. I love Shimao stuff, but they never did own up to this problem, as far as I know. Check those things first and let's go from there.

       
    • Look at the diagram, order the parts.   If it pops open or won't close I am still thinking the spring... Take pictures with phone or digital camera as you take it apart.  Helps to get it back together. 
    • Wrong guy there.  I don't fish in MN anymore, don't have a boat either. 
    • Clinton.     After Mn coughed up 66 million for 150 jobs in Cook, nobody from MN ought to be criticizing Indiana.  Looks like they got a heck of a deal.
    • who hasn't done something dumb like that.  I know I have!   good luck making it up to you Mother!!
    • *sigh* Kiss of death my friend............. kiss of death.   LOL
    • make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
    • the thing that trips the latch is worn or broken.    i think   will take apart and look if i set hook hard the bail rackets pops up and lets line out won't close some of time...have to do manually
