Eskimo Barracuda/Shark-Jiffy Stealth

Recommended Posts

I went out tonight to try out my new stealth. I was very pleased with it's performance. Just like Jiffy claims the stealth blades help to pull the auger through the ice. I didn't have to apply any pressure to the handles at all. I don't know what it would take for me to switch to Strikemaster, probably being given one. I have always used Jiffy 10" drills and it looks like I will be very satisfied with the new one. So those of you looking for a new auger check the stealths out.

Cool to know. My Barracuda cuts like mad too and it's light as can be. Good to have an auger that won't wear you out.

Any auger out of the box with factory sharpened blades better pull you through the ice, regardless of the brand. If it doesn't, return it. Strikemaster, Jiffy, Eskimo, they're all good units. Cut with what you have and enjoy what you cut. grin.gif

Thanks for the help but I have used plenty of augers and had several new sets of blades and none of them cut as easily as this stealth. Most augers you still have to apply some pressure to even with new blades. With this one all I had to do was hold the handles. Look at the stealth if you are in the market. Weight for me isn't a big issue. So if you like 8" good I don't I feel like I am fishing in a coffee cup. I like 10" augers and every 10" is heavy it doesn't matter which one you go with. Just thought that I would let you know that the 10" Stealth is the one for me. Glad you all like your machine good.

You are correct, I have the Eskimo Mako and that auger cuts through the ice like there is no tomarrow. Had a Jiffy but the blades got dull to fast got tired of changing blades. Very happy with the Eskimo.
