Strikemaster customer service is second to none

7 posts in this topic

Just another note about the great customer service at Strikemaster in Big Lake. Last night on the first pull out on the lake I ripped the recoil rope right out of my old Mag3000 3HP 10" chipper. When I took it apart out on the lake to re-thread and re-tie, I noticed the recoil spring was toast, not loading up.

So this AM, I went to SM HQ in Big Lake. They keep old refurb parts on a shelf behind the city desk by the front shop - and they had a full rebuilt recoil for my unit sitting right there. 5 minutes later, it was back in my hands, fixed. Always ready to pay for great service, I asked how much, and, like many here, was told no charge. He said they'll rebuild my dead recoil and fix another one for no charge when it walks in.

How cool is that! And how refreshing, this customer service stuff really isn't rocket science afterall. ;\)

I can add to this. I bought a stike lite 4 stroke last season and this year the Auger broke. Since they are made of a hard plastic I am not sure how it broke or when exactally but I called SM and they just shipped me one free of charge after I shipped the old one back. I live in Moorhead, they sent me a call tag, to send it back at their expense and I placed it on the UPS truck on Tuesday, had it back at friday. New blades, new cover everything.

I was most impressed.

Agreed - Outstanding customer service. Were ya able to flag someone down from the villages and get a hole drilled? I spose your spot would've been in jeopardy... cool.gif

Heh! There was no one nearby, although someone spooky gave me a close drive-by staring at me... I was luckily (or unluckily really) just to be out there to relocate the shack, and I was getting ready to drill holes to find the precise location to place it. So I placed my faith in the SM gods that I'd be rockin' again today. Thanks to SM, I can give 'er another whirl tonight. ;\)

All I can say is, when that cord broke, I had the shakes just like when FM was down for a day. grin.gif

Sole reason I will be a customer for life. Better products may come along, but they have always treated me like their best customer.

I feel the exact same way.

I have an old Magnum III and they treated me like I was a their best customer as well!

While I was in there a guy brought in a 5 yr old Auger that the broke a gear in the transmission. They fixed it with a used part, said that should never break, have a nice day @ no charge.

While I don't expect them to do things for free, They are reasonable and seem to focus on giving you a "Wow" everytime you are there!

Nils may be argualbly a better product, Jiffy may be faster, others may be cheaper, but it will take a lot for me not to recommend Strikemaster to anyone who asks(or even doesn't ask for that matter!). I definetely won't be buying anything else!

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!
