New strikemaster flighting or new jiffy

Recommended Posts

I have a 3hp lazer pro strikemaster and I am tired of putting new blades on it every time I take it to a lake full of silt in the ice and I am looking to purchase a chipper style bit. How do the strikemasters compare to the jiffy. I can get a strikemaster assembly for around 150. Am I better off to buy a whole new jiffy auger and sell my old one or should I just buy a bit. Anybody that has used these please let me know.

Get the SM drill and you'll be fine. I've had both and there's no real difference except the direction they turn which makes zero difference when drilling.

Happy with my jiffy, both should be good. If it's not to frequent that you would need to use the chipper buying just the bit would save alot of $$$

Thanks for the help. I wound up just getting a bit for my strikemaster, it was hard to beat it at 100 for the bit.

If you can find one, the 8" k-drill is worth every penny. Light weight, and a hybrid style blade that cuts awesome. I hear ya on the lazer blades. When I got mine I broke blades every few trips. Swapped back to my chipper which is okay. Lazer is just so fast tho...

I have an ion already. I want this auger for big fish trips I just got back from Winnipeg and have 3-4 more trips up there this year and the k-drill won't cut it for me. I bring my ion as a backup but won't use it for my main auger up there either gas or propane for the main auger. Too much ice and too many holes for battery power.
