Thanks in advance from the New Guy and Ice Fishing Novice

I guess it depends on how much it has been used, but more importantly the price they're asking....It's a good auger with a powerful Tecumseh.....I'm a Strikemaster guy!

i like strikemaster too. i have the 8" model good one. i had to down grade to a lazer hand for weight try to pull a sled with alot of gear. so i made it little lite and very easy to pull along. oh btw did u see the newest models out yet no more mixing oil and gas the 4 stroke engine they r cool. they recommed do not use e-85 u will blow the motor.

what did on my hand lazer auger was took the smooth edge blades off that came with it replaced them with lazer power auger blades with teeth i got better cutting power on a hand auger they dont dull as fast as smooth edge.

Give the crew at Reel Fishing and Tackle a call. They have great deals on re-conditioned Strike Master augers that come with a full warranty.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.
