StrikeMaster Mag 2000

I currently have 1 and put a Lazer bit on it, never used the chipper blade so no comment there. I have had a few issues with mine, broke recoil and carb went bad. Other than that though its been a good auger. In the process of selling it and getting a Nils.

I have a strikemaster. The only issue I have with it, is trying to start it for the first time. It will take me anywhere from 5 to 8 pulls before I get it started. After i get it started, it usually takes 1 to 2 pullsto start. So Iam happy with it. Nothing wrong with a Strikemaster IMO.

The Mag 2000 is definatly a great auger for the price. Like a lot of guys mentioned here, they purchased a lazer head to go as a combo to save on the cost of a Lazer Mag. I was albe to purchase a 7" "Demo" lazer from SM last spring for 70$ so there are some deals to be had out there.

As far as reliablity, mine has started great for several years running now, only a couple recoil ropes breaking, and thats all she wrote for me. I'm gonna be trying the Amsoil 100-1 this year so I'll see how that improves starting and running performance.

I have a mag 2000 and I love it. I think for the price you can't go wrong. I have always had good luck getting it to start right away. the key is short fast strokes with the rope. If you pull the rope to far out it will break.

I have had mine a couple of years and like everyone else love it. I am still using the chipper blade and no complaints.

There was a post a few years back on Ice Team about starting them and it works for me. Leave the switch off and give it 3 pulls. Turn the switch on and move the choke up a little and it will start with the next pull. This has worked for me. I also start it at home for a few seconds before I head out. Not sure that I need to, but it is nice to know that when you leave that it will start and run. Hopefully this will eliminate any surprises out on the lake.
