Nils 10 inch power auger

Yeah, that's crazy. Double the cost of the similarly sized strikemaster. That's a solid premium price. I bet they either drop the price or cancel the product in fairly short order. No way it's worth twice the cost of a strikemaster.

I agree Brian, that is a spendy auger and even though Nil's makes a very good product, limited amount of ice fisherman that will drop that kind of money just for an auger.

I can't understand why they think $999.00 price tag is good for anyone. Doubt the company will sell many. Maybe its so high because of limited production.

You will pay more for a commercial grade powerhead which no other brand uses . Before our dollar climbed here, my 8 inch Nils was about a grand to get to the door . Is it for most weekend or occassional ice warriors . ? Likely not but heah when you see so many ice castles etc out there at 12-25 grand being towed by 40 grand plus trucks there will be a market for these too . When I need a 10 inch hole I'll dig out the beast Jiffy and the rest the little Nils will get the nod methinks . smile

Joe for Red Rock is a super nice guy and he is very knowledgeable. He personally tests almost all the items he sells.

OOfdaa Tacos that is up there 4sure. Never owned a Nils but have used a couple a coupla times and they are probably if not easily the best cutting power auger out there that I've fondled but 1k is serious ka-ching-ching no doubt. Ouch. I am maybe thinking of getting a new ice drill this season but this'n is a tad steep and the good half would lay a lashing on me iffin I even told her that I really need it !!

Sure like to have one come the end of March early April for the Pike fishing though as it'd most likely be the shizzz but the heavy tank reliable STX just keeps going and going.

Maybe I should finally go to the new Warroad casino and try to win one on the Blackjack table !!!

Nils are great augers! Tanaka motors are professional grade. 7 year warranty is a nice feature too.

For that price it should be a lifetime warranty.

You do not have to get the Nils Master Power Ice Auger 35cc engine. You can save some money & get the 27cc Engine instead.

What a bunch of tools, I was emailing them to make a 10" Nils for years and they told me they would NEVER make one because of the lack of interest.

I told them that a group of friends and I were going to sell our Nils and buy 10" Strikemasters (Which we did). They came back telling me they could custom make a 10 inch shaft and head for my Nils for $225-$250.

I came back asking them if it was ok for me to run a bigger shaft and head on the motor that was originally meant to run the 8" (which is actually even smaller then 8"). They said they didn't know since no one has tried it and the gearing might not be set up right.

Pretty funny though, now they come out with a 10" after they were acting like there is no chance because no one wants them. Guess they didn't like those emails or them threads of people selling their undersized 8" Nils for 10" Strikemasters. They should of done it 5 yrs ago, I'll stick with my Strikemaster now.

I might try one out in 5 yrs when they come down to normal auger price lol.

      looks like there will be a change in sunfish limits effective march 1. article in todays st cloud times said there looking to reduce the sunfish limit on 9 area lakes. those lakes happen to make up the horseshoe chain system. looks like the new limit will go from 20 to 10.   now this is just my opinion but i didnt hear any issues with the panfish population  until a few years after they introduced the catfish to that system.   either way i'm ok with the change!

      Are you looking for one for hardwater or openwater

      Whoa, bringing this one back from the dead.   I use Rockys.  The specific model are Cornstalkers.  They have 500 grams of insulation.  I use mine as all-purpose boots, walking for pheasants/grouse and sitting for deer/turkeys.  The first set I had lasted for about 10 years before they started to fall apart.  I'm on my second pair now, year 3 coming up.  I had a pair of Redhead Comfort Airs from Bass Pro for 2 seasons and they started to leak and my feet always got wet.  Highly suggest avoiding the Redhead brand of boots.

      I like Danner. These boots tick all the right factors that go into delivering a great boot experience, more here https://bootsgeek.com/danner-quarry-review/

      Well, just wrapped up my last day in Grand Marais. All the smaller, shallow lakes are locked up with ice, or will be after tonight. Lots of snow up the trail, but getting around on back roads wasn’t a problem. I stopped and fished most of the trout lakes around the gunflint and arrowhead trails...the ones that weren’t frozen over anyway. My dad didn’t see a single grouse...I saw one at the start of the arrowhead. I didn’t hear a single gunshot while I was out fishing. Saw 1 moose, 1 bear, a few deer, foxes were everywhere! And even saw a fisher run across the road. Saw just about every animal print you can think of in the snow. Still a few diving ducks around, snow buntings and crossbills everywhere. And finally seen a gray jay! Despite the cold and snow, it really wasn’t that bad out. Was a different perspective fishing all the lakes in waders, as opposed to being in a boat.

      Thanks for stopping in Darren. I will always consider you a great friend. You always gave and then gave some more.   You are appreciated.

      A huge shout out to Borch who gave some really good pointers on running the raps in our lake.   This fall my dad spent more days fishing from my boat and actually was begging me to go. Dont know if we will be able to do it again but made some really good memories. 
    • The Chemist
      And i did this. I wished i could learn not to have this happen. Having to go to the ER was odd with the whole covid thing.
