Lazer auger on MAG head?

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if a 7 inch Strikemaster Lazer auger shaft will fit on a Strikemaster MAG 2000 auger head? Thanks for the help.

It should they seem to be the same size shaft. If you are buying a new one take your head or at least measure the size of the shaft, and measure the opening on the auger. You could also call any dealer and ask them they can tell you.

Just took off the original Auger bit on my Mag III Plus and put on a 8 inch lazer works great and should work on the Mag 2000 as well.

I have an 8" lazer drill on a mag 2000 head and it works great. Popped tons of holes this year.

I will also concur that it will fit. The only difference between the mag2000 and the lazer mag/224 head is the color of the engine guard (black vs. red)

Last year when I picked up my "224" from D-Rock, the augers he used to drill holes all were the mag2000. I paired a new 224 auger bit up with the mag2000 head with no problems. Maybe this is a little picky, but I gave Strikemaster a call and they sent me out the new engine decal for the lazer 224 and I removed and applied it to the engine. It definitely looks more "mean" with the black engine guard with the new decal. Plus, (hopefully this NEVER happens) but if someone were to "borrow" my auger on the ice, hopefully they'd think twice as my exact "setup" is not something you could pick up at any store.

I have a 10 year old Mag 2000, and last year brought it to Strikemaster in Big Lake to have it upgraded to a 7" laser.

They had a heck of a time removing the old auger, but they were able to work on it while I waited. That company has great customer service!

I think it ended up costing around $120 or so, and it works great.

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
