The chipper blades are flat and have teeth, the lazer blades are curved and go through the ice like a hot knife in butter. Keep the lazer, you will be happy you did.

They are designed for that particular blade configuration, you will need to stay with the shavers, or get a 2000 lower auger flighting assembly to replace the one you have now.

You may find somebody willing to swap if you ask around?

I've got an extra chipper style, but you're a bit far for a trade grin

I have the Strikemaster 2000 with the chipper blade and I have less problems cutting than my friend with the lazer blade. He bent his flighting so I lent him my spare chipper blade. I also have a MagIII that was at least 15 years old and never had a problem with the flighting or the blades.

Ive got a pair of 8'' Lazer Blades, I need the 9'' Lazer Ultra Blades (3 to a set). If anybody has those I'd swap, and probably throw you some cash. I bought the wrong ones frown

Mnhunter, if you have to push down on the lazer to make it cut the pitch of the blades is off. SM can repitch the blades and it will cut effortlessly. Did you buy it used or new? Also, the only complaint I know of with the Lazer is reopening holes in the perm, not always a problem but once in awhile. That might be the only trouble, with your perm a Zipple. But for hole hopping, like said earlier, hot knife through butter.

i bought it brand new and the guy told me i might have to press down a little to get it to cut.i got the duel blades but i dont think its not cutting the way it should.he also told me it would not redrill holes.but thats where i can put my eskimo drill on it strikemaster head.maybe i'll get a hold of strikemaster and ask them about the pitch.

I just set mine on the ice and hit the throttle. There's no need to push down as it sucks right down through the ice. If you have to push on it something definitely isn't right.

    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting? 
    • Is that like saying "the lights are on, but nobodies  home.?
    • Newsie's where reporting on how the lights are on in the white house at 5am...   "First time in a long long time.."    
    • Beautiful!!! Can I ask what your dry brine for the side pork was?
