Strike Master CS

12 posts in this topic

After using my Lazer auger all year recutting holes, it wasnt cutting the best anymore. So I called up Strike Master, and they told me to bring it up there, and they will check it out. I had my wife bring it there today during her lunch. She brought the auger in, the shield strap busted when she took it out of the car. At the front counter they asked her a couple basic questions, took the auger into the back and check the pitch, it was off, said the blades are ok, but were starting to get a little dull.

So the guy adjusted the pitch, put a new strap on the cover for the auger, sold my wife a new set of 9 inch Lazer blades, and a new 10 inch extension, all for less then what I could have bought new blades for at any other place, a total of $35.

And she was in and out of there in about 20 minutes! Man it is great having customer service like that!!

SM customer service is the best. That's the reason I'll buy nothing but.

I would cut your holes anytime Tom. Although that Ice Gator is such a nice rig, I would hate to have to mess with my auger, when that thing is king!

A Strike master is no Nil's, but their customer service at the back counter is very, very good. They gave me good advice a month or so ago with my Mag 2000.

I was told the price to adjust your pitch on your auger flights is about how many fingers you can count on one hand wink

Lazer blades new in a box is about $39.00 alone up north wink

Even with all that, next year I will own a Nil's wink

They are awesome! I had the same exact thing happen after I drilled through a peice of drift wood. New blades and gave me an extension for $35. Just walked in without them knowing and was out in less than 15mins.

You just can't compare a jiffy to a nils hunt&fish, they aren't even in the same class.

Just try a nils and you will see

but a nils is no JIFFY

Thanks God, cause if it was I would not be getting a Nil's next year grin

No Jiffy is a good brand, but just not my cup of tea. If I was not switching to Nil's next year, I would stick with Strike Master hands down, but that is just me grin

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
