Strikemaster 40V Auger - Now w/Reverse

Recommended Posts

Was at Cabela's in Rogers, MN this morning and they were starting to bring out all their ice fishing gear.  That got me pretty excited in general, but when I saw the new Strikemaster Lithium 40V auger with reverse I was even more excited.  I've got the original 40V lithium and it has been great - for anyone looking at a new auger this season I'd highly recommend this new version of the auger based off my experience with the old version.

First ice will be here soon and it's going to be great!

I'm a hardcore electric auger guy, my 2 Ion's have been foolproof but if I was to do it over today I would go with the K Drill. I always have a drill for raising and lowering my winches anyway.

Strikemaster almost ruined the market with their Electra lazer 1200.  It'll be a few more years until they get people to bite again...until then the ion and k drill will still take the market.

I heard you get two batteries with the Strikemaster Lithium this year, that would be like a 200 dollar freebie...

Anyone else hear that??

Yes, you get 2 batteries.  It looks like the charger and batteries are setup like a traditional drill battery charger.

The faulty switch in their first gen lithium didn't help either

The faulty switch was no big deal.  I never had any issues with it and the claim was that the switch wouldn't shut off if you let go - I get it's inconvenient and I'm not saying it is safe, but don't be an one-who-thinks-I-am-silly - unplug the battery to power down the unit.  Also, for free Strikemaster either swapped the switch out or offered to buy back the unit for full MSRP (in Rapala gift card).

I'm a little biased due to the superb customer service I've gotten out of strikemaster in the past.  I lost the charger for my first gen lithium and they sent me a brand new one for no cost and no questions asked.  All in all, I'd recommend at least checking the new units out before bashing them.  The true test will come this winter when people starting putting the unit through the ringer.

    • Hmmm.  My cheapest camera is a Wildgame Innovations unit but I haven’t been a great fan of it.  It’s not the NANO version but though, just a cheap one I picked up in a small shop during a hunt cuz I felt I NEEDED one right then.   I do like my old Moultrie and am looking at the M50i as a much updated version of it.   Still comparing their line up.  If I just bought now, that’s what I’d go with.   That WGI 360 sounds like something I have to check out!
    • I have been a Wild Game Innovations fan for most of my time using cams.  I really really like the NANO version they put out.  Compact, only take 4 AA batteries, great battery life and the pictures have been very good quality.  That being said, last year I won a Moultrie Game Spy 2 at a company party and have been very impressed with it.  Same as the Nano, takes only 4 batteries and pictures are very good as well.  These two cameras are now my "go to" and I won't be needing to spend  100's on other cameras when these work great.  The one camera that I am thinking about getting though is the WGI 360 degree camera.  Supposed to be able to take pictures 360 degrees so you don't miss anything moving behind where a normal camera can't detect them.
    • yeah the last couple years have been rather tough for me, but all is good and I can't wait to get back into the stand.  Are you still working the Deployed Soldier/Disabled Soldier hunt at Ripley?  We stopped going as it was just too early in the season and weather was always so darn warm.  Wish they would have held it right prior to the "big" hunts at the end of the month.  Always a good time though.    You'll hear more from me in the time to come and look forward to hearing all your reports of the big one!!!
    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
