It sounds like you might have tweaked your drill. Check with the folks at Strikemaster in Big Lake.

The strikemasters in the psat had problems with the auger to blade supports breaking/cracking and then the pitch of the blades would be off just a bit and enough to make cutting a real pain. My friends that had strikemsaters took them to Big Lake and they fixed them up, cleaned them and got them running like new for very cheap.

Im a Nils guy but Strikemaster has been good to my friends who have them.

If you have a newer one with the point in the middle it needs to be sharp. I had the same problem and found a big burr on the center point, I filed it sharp and now it drills like a dream.

I have a strikemaster with the laser blades and can not reopen a hole with it. It just jumps all over the hole. Has anybody else had this problem?

I don't re-open alot of holes with mine, but the ones I have done have went great. My auger cut just as good as it does when drilling a new hole. I have a Strikemaster Lazer mag express. The blades aren't new, but still cut fine. I think I have ran about 6 tanks of gas through the auger since I bought it last year, and the blades are the ones that came on it.

You might need new blades or your auger shaft could be bent?

Hope you get it figured out.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂

      Heading up to the river in the morning trying to decide if I should fish up the river or out if wheelers.

      Sure wish we would get a strong enough east wind to pile the ice on shore. Lot of ice out there and it will take a long time if it has to all melt.
