Jumping on the bandwagon!

12 posts in this topic

I've read all the great posts about Strikemaster customer service and now I can add my testimony! I bought a Lazer Mag last February and it ran great throughout last season. I summerized it properly, put a new plug and fresh gas in it this season and had no luck starting it. I thought it was a carb issue since I could get the thing to fire but it wouldn't stay running. I brought it into Strikemaster today and had them look at it. Jason did a great job even going above and beyond to help the customer. He tried a new carb, lamination and spark plug but even he couldn't get it to run. Mike said they would put a new powerhead on it free of charge. I was in and out in about forty minutes. I wish more companies stood behind their products like Strikemaster! It's companies like Strikemaster that keep a customer coming back. P.S. I did feel guilty and buy a sweatshirt so they made a little something out of the deal.

i love my strikemaster. ive never had one problem with it.... ok one but that was my own fault, the knot just came out of the pull cord. Took it apart and melted the knot to hold better. other then that starts in a few pulls everytime, whether its -10 out or 30 above. Funny how i hear jiffy ppl complain, buddy has had 3-4 of them and couldnt get a single one to idle right from day one. (reason hes had 3-4 is cuz they would exchange for the same one but not return it for a refund)

I have a jiffy, and end up using buddies strike master when we fish together. My jiffy really binds up at the end of the hole. His strike master will power right threw, and they are both single blades.

another sucker I bought a big 10 incher 3hp jiffy and had the same problem, the thing would throw me all over the place, it would go through the hole great until the last inch or so, and you had better hang on that sun of gun hit like a musky at the end. I gave the thing away and got a strikemaster and have no problems what so ever. by far the superior unit.

We have a Jiffy at the cabin, and it works great when you can get it started. The Jiffy is only a couple of years old. I always end up bringing my strike master. It starts everytime.

Hanging up at the end of the hole, usually means your blades are dull, My strikemaster does it when the blade is bad

I have had no problems with my 23 year old jiffy. I agree with with river rat says on the dull blades though. The best customer service IMO is one you never have to use though. A company should stand behind their product if it goes bad in a short period of time.

I will say that my jiffy starts very well. My buddy and I had both our augers pulling in a sled behind the atv. By the time we got to the house everything was caked with snow. The recoil was completely filled. My jiffy started against all odds, his strike master wanted to go, but the throttle cable was froze and wouldnt move. Hard to hate on an auger that will start in that situation.

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
