      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Anyone exp. with Strikemaster Electic Auger

Recommended Posts

Looking at electric augers... I'm interested in the strikemaster one. I'm just worried about the battery going dead (or half dead and [PoorWordUsage] performance)

Does anyone have one that would like to comment?

Thanks!

I've got a strikemaster lazer mag with a 10" auger. I love it. Cut's fast, not too heavy and starts real nice. I bought it from DRock as a demo unit and got a good deal. I've only owned Strikemaster and can't really say anything negative about the company. Good product, good customer service/support. Happy hunting.

I've had a SM electric for two years and I think it's great. I've never run out of power and I like the quietness and no smelly hands from gasoline. I definitely recommend one.

You cant beat the customer service with Strikemaster. I wont buy another auger for that reason alone. I got the electric and love it. Bought it two years ago but dont know the model. I usually have a deep cycle on the 4 wheeler to plug her into. Ive drilled over a 100 holes a day and never came close to running out of juice.......it's a nice buy.

I bought the SM Lectra last year and love it. I can drill all the holes I need for a day. It comes with a charger to use in your vehicle and charge after use so it is ready to go when you need to drill more. I can easliy drill 6 holes through 48" ice, proved last spring on LOW. I also have a couple extra batteries I bring with in case and also made a 25' cable to plug into my truck battery directly. I made a quick connect and mounted it in the bumper of my F-150 and don't even need to open the hood to access this. I have only had to use the truck battery once when I was drilling 10 holes in about 3-4' of ice.
