  1. You just tie the line to the reel and reel it on... there is no bail... you just unwind it to drop it down, which can be tight or lose... as that is your drag. It's really the only bad thing about it is unwinding it... the knob takes the reel off, which is fine (no small parts you have to worry about losing)... sometimes if you unwind too quickly, the line can get "sucked up", and you need to undo the screw to fix it... doesn't really happen often. I actually really like the combo, for the price... I'm sure others will disagree, but to each their own.
  2. Thanks for all of the input guys! I think for $10, I'll start with the Navionics app since I have an iPhone and see if I like it... I can always go up from there! I assume you can store hot ice spots on there as well? Lastly, how accurate are these GPS units? Meaning, how close to the original spot will you get the next time you come back to that hotspot? Each device differs probably?
  3. I'm looking to purchase a good value GPS unit for saving my ice fishing spots... Are there GPS units that you can put a chip in to see contour lines and other data like sand bars, etc? Any input would be appreciated!
  4. What do you guys recommend to store you ice augers? I'd prefer a wall mount bracket if possible? What options do I have?
  5. How was Red Lake this weekend? Sorry, a bit off topic, but planning to go up there soon... so I was curious.
  6. I'm going to assume the metal gear case is better than the Strikemasters, but as a result are heavier? The 10" Edge is a direct comparison to the Lazer Mag 10", but Clam is 2 lbs heavier it appears. (30 lbs).
  7. Are they any good? I'm looking to buy a light auger (less than 30 lbs). I'm looking at a 10" as well. I was leaning towards the Strikemaster Laser Mag, but have been reading about some issues with the Strikemasters. I'm sure the new Honda Strike Lite 10" would be awesome, but I really didn't want to spend more than $450 if possible. I hear these new Clam augers are almost identical to the StrikeMasters, but have a better gear box? I'm sure this is a Chevy vs Ford question, but I'd like to hear some opinions.
  8. I was looking at the ICE 55 since they were $429 with a $55 rebate, which seems like a pretty decent deal, but I was reading it has 2.5 in target separation? Really? Vex and Marcums are at like .75, .5, and .25 and the birds are all at 2.5? Am I missing something? Are the birds doing something different or different technology or something? Any input?
