      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 .

Jiffy Ice Drills

Recommended Posts

Guest

I was surfing websites today and came across the Jiffy Ice Drill site. I see they have a new STEALTH drill this year. The information provided states it is Stealth cutting technology, positive starting and easy cutting. Has anyone seen this at the stores yet? Also, being NEW, I am curious to know who out there was able to use this last year?

I got them in at Mills Fleet Farm in St Cloud. They are available in the 3HP model in 8, 9 or 10 inch bits.

Jiffy has added two extra small blades near the center point at the bottom of the drill bit. It is brand new this year, so we will see how it works. It looks like a sweet setup, maybe even better than the Strikemaster Lazer series.

They run about $380-$390 depending on the size if the hole you want.

Good Luck,
Skeets

The new 5 bit system hogs through ALL types of ice very well.

I seen a prototype in action and they really cut fast and clean out well.

I plan to be running a the 2 H.P. Jiffy Stealth™ Series Model 77-ST/79-ST this season.

will the new blade system work on the older model Jiffy's? thanks for any info. From the picture it appears just drilling a couple of holes in the pointed tip would do it!

The two new center bits produce more chips then the single bit point did in the past.

If you look the cut-out in the center of the cutting head you will see it has been increased to alow for the chips to be easily pulled up to the inside of the flighting.

You would be wiser to buy the new lower cutting head and swap them out then trying to modify the old head in my opinion.

From my understanding the only way to buy the Stealth Auger is to buy the complete unit. Jiffy is not selling the drill assembly with the Stealth Point and it can not be added onto any exsisting units. To drill a hole into heat treated steeel would be very difficult. Plus you would not be able to drill the holes in the correct postion because of the bottom plate.

I can not wait untill I have the opportunity to try this new auger. I am hearing alot of positive comments on how smooth it drills.

IcePro are your saying the lower auger flighting will not interchange with a another Jiffy power head?

From what I seen they appear to use the same style and size output shaft and auger insert, maybe not?

I have yet seen any Jiffy Auger that you could not buy a new replacement auger of your choice to fit the power head. It would be odd if they started that policy now?

The Stealth™ & RIPPER™ cutting features will be offered on all the following Premium models.

LEGEND LIGHTning™ (Model 77 - ST)
LEGEND™ (Model 31- ST)
LIGHTning Bolt™ (Model 79 - ST)
THUNDER Bolt™ (Model 34 - ST.)

I am checking in with Feldmann today to see if they have a blackout on selling the individual Stealth™ Drill Assembly's this season. It is a new product so maybe they do? I'll let you know what I hear from Jiffy.

I stand corrected, IcePro hit it on the head, no sales outside of a complete unit in 2002-2003.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Ed

You can not purchase just a Stealth drill assembly. The Stealth is only available as a complete unit, powerhead and drill assembly.

You can purchase the Stealth off of our
HSOforum www.jiffyonice.com or by calling us at 1-800-344-0712.

Best regards,
Jeff Huenink

Feldmann Engineering and Manufacturing Co., Inc.

thanks for the research EDDY, I guess they want to sell the whole unit, however mine works fine as is, and you'd think they would rather make a few dollars rather than none cause I won't replace a perfectly good machine so I can cut ice a little quicker. That's part of what's wrong with this world today!

    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
    • This is a common misconception with LTIR. I too, thought it meant we "saved" money until I read up on it recently. What LTIR actually allows is for a team to go OVER the cap during a player(s) on LTIR, but once they return, they have to get back under the cap. So, true, it would allow them to spend more, but over the long haul it wouldn't be something they could go out and get someone to fill in without haven't to do something when the LTIR players return.
    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.  
    • Only made it out for one day for resident opener this last weekend but we had a great hunt. Took the day off and got out yesterday and battled the heat. I almost chose to call it quits early but went slow and took our time but had to take lots of breaks in the field. It was 74 degrees out and if I found water the dog got dunked. Was pretty slow day didn't see a single bird or shoot my first bird until 3:30pm. Ended up shooting all 3 of my birds in the same WIA in the span of an hour. Dog pointed a group of 3 hens in the same spot and then another by itself. Went about 30 yards further and dog locked up. Flushed bird it was rooster and dropped it on the first shot. As I shot 2 other roosters got up in gun range. With just one shell left in my O/U I rushed a shot going for a double, doh. Focused on where downed bird went down and sure enough another rooster gets up in the same spot it went down. Rushed both shots thinking it was the same bird I already knocked down. doh x2 Fortunately dog was able to retrieve first bird so was nice to put one in the vest for our first bird of the year. Took a water break and regrouped as that was a lot of excitement in a short amount of time and dog was overheated. Sat there for about 20 mins and let dog catch his breath. Started working field again and we no more and got started and dog locks up. Flush bird and its a rooster and he only needed one shot before he folded. Retrieved to hand and continued on.   Continue working to end of the property and saw a few more hens and one other rooster that I didn't want to drop over the water and thick cattails. He didn't fly far and hoped to get him on the way back as we walked side we hadn't covered yet. Dog locked up again on the other side and I let the bird get out a ways. Dropped it on the first shot and figured we were done for the day as it folded hard. It ended up being a runner and took off straight for the mud and thick cattails. We tried to track it, found some feathers so thought we were right on it. But once the dog got buried deep in the thick stuff it was just too warm. No scent going through there and he was getting way too overheated so I called him off the track.  We did end up getting our 3rd bird of the day with another nice point and retrieve. Was a good day to be out despite the heat. I spend the rest of the day scouting out other areas to hunt. Put about 350 miles on the truck and other than that one walk didnt see anything else. Did shoot a couple coons though and found a great set of antlers.  Unfortunately I forgot to bring my gopro and only took a couple pics.
