Strikemaster e-mail address...

Recommended Posts

Hoping someone has the e-mail address handy. Can't get through on their HSOforum for some reason. Comp. says it can't configure...go figure. Anyway, on third set of blades this winter now and this morning they were just spinning. They are sharp! I run a Strikemaster Lazer Ultra 8 1/4 inch... The guy I bought it from runs a bait shop and he bought it new two winters ago. I bought it last winter from him for a decent price as He wanted to get a new one (cuz he can). Last week he gave me Brand new 8 inch blades. The worked awesome for the first three or four times out, now they suck! Any suggestions?

I got it. I copied and pasted... it to my hotmail then sent it. Something is wrong and to be honest I'm a bit frustrated. A while back I had a blade shattet into three pieces after drilling several holes. The unit actually worked better with one blade... Now I went and got two new blades and it works well for a bit ... now it just spins. I took off one of the blades and walla. It works better with one blade. Man do I have issues with that thing. I did send that e-mail and I sure hope I get it resolved soon.

Fever, I had a problem with my Lazer Mag earlier this year. I wrote a couple of emails with negative results. I'm not sure who reads the emails and responds to them there, but they are not helpful at all. After a few disappointing emails, I decided just to call customer service and let them know of my frustrations. The lady I spoke to was very kind and helpful. She only wanted to know my address and my auger model. The next day, I had a new handle in the mail free of charge with no questions asked. My suggestion to you is to just pick up the phone and give them a call, you will be satisfied with the results.

I've had my strikemaster for 3 years now and have had a couple issues...

once my buddy rolled the portable that my auger was on and flung the auger (Handle broke) Strikemaster fixed the handle in minutes and the only cost I had was for the part.

pulled my rope out...too long of arm/too short of rope - brought it in and they fixed free of charge

I guess i am lucky to work 15 minutes from their shop. Never had any issue with their live customer service.

I would call them. It might be a pitch problem and not the blades. If you need to go there, it is kind-of neat to see all of the antique augers on the walls.

I believe they have the auger from the grumpy old men...if you are a fan of the flick its a decent place to check out!

After two emails I heard back from them. As expected they said it most likely was a small pitch issue and that I should either send the auger to them or bring it in personally. I asked how long it would take and found it to be 2-3 days. Now on one hand that is good considering the frustration I'm going through while augering holes but on the other, I fish 3-4 days a week.... This poses a problem! I do have a hand auger but I've become a touch lazy and there is just too much ice for that! Also if I did ship the auger I'm thinking it would cost an arm / leg... might be cheaper for me to drive it up to Big Lake and call a buddy whenever I go out.

I'm thinkin he wanted new cause this one was a problem, not cause he can. You're beef should be with him and not SM. SM customer service is second to none, take it to them, they'll take care of ya. Lesters pretty close to Big Lake.

Fever, I can almost guarantee that if you just bring it to them, they will have you taken care of in a a couple of hours max. Just bring it there and explain your story. They will more than likely push you to the top of the list and fix the issues.

Unless there's a line, you'll be out of there quick. If it is a pitch issue they'll have it fixed in no time.

    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
