Any changes in ION Augers?

Recommended Posts

There were lots of rumors, and it may be just rumors, that there was some new changes to the ION. Anybody have any inside information?

Can't say I do, and sorry to jump your thread, but got a kick out of this the other day. Jump to about 2:10 in the first vid where this nascar on ice dude "struggles" with it. Hope he is not on the recalibration/improvement/recomendation team.....would honestly value Katie's advice over his wink Personally would like to see a better switch set up, a starter point in the blade bracket, and possibly a few more inches/snort.....was getting close to not fishing last late winter.

I've heard the same thing from someone that sells them but they didn't know any details.

That video is soooo wrong in soooo many areas!30 holes from a Strike Master and less than 20 from an Ion? There are many, many posts on here from happy Ion owners to reinforce their quality. The drill plate is very innovative and quality product but they have different uses. I'd love to have one but I just don't want a 6 inch hole in my house. I just don't understand why they want to bash Ion all the time. Two quality products for 2 different uses.

Still laughing about that term "NASCAR On Ice Dude"

Anyone else notice how much of an angle he's drill with the ion? Probably be a little faster if both blades could do the cutting wink

I never had an issue with the speed of my ion and one time at -6, I wanted to see how many holes I could get but got bored at 28 with 21" of ice and just stopped.

Speed test really don't mean anything unless they are all using the same size auger. A 8" is cutting 33% more ice then a 6".

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
