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.

      I bought the Phonetone for $180. I am on the north side of Pine.  I barely got 1 bar in the cabin and after I temporarily set it up on the deck I went to a full 4 bars with Verizon. Good so far.

      Hey Charlie I am from the Northen Metro fishing around here for me is about two thing finding spots that your normal weekend warrior would not think to fish at or finding those so called ¨community holes¨ that are very pressured and using diffrent techniques and showing the fish diffrent stuff than they are used to seeing here are some of my favorite spots around here Centerville lake is doing good right now for bass and pike Bald Eagle is my main home lake the docks along the north side are great spots for summer froging flipping or any other technique you want to use a slip boober with a worm will catch plenty to along with some big pumpkinseed that are in there there are 3-4 places you can lanuch a kayak from you will see them if you drive down the road on the west side of the lake the reeds and grass on the north end are great to but a bit tricky to launch a kayak from if you want less pressured fishing try comfort lake by lindstom sqaure lake and big marine are great to finally a great spot for some kayak fishing is the St Croix if you can get someone to drop you off you can float down the river the whole day and get someone to pick you back up I am not a very avid kayak fisherman but you can message pepole like JB Master Angler who fishes the St Croix a good amount I am pretty sure Rick G and Eyeguy 54 are both Avid Kayak fisherman I am sure they would recommed some good spots for you as well  Good Luck -Austin

      The other boats I've owned had the bow roller positioned so the roller hits the keel when the boat is snubbed up, not the bow eye.

      If you need them to bring cell phone signal booster and install it for you, try this company that did a splendid job for me: https://www.signalbooster.com/products/cell-phone-signal-booster-plus-installation
