Where can I find a Nils Hand auger??
« on: Feb 09, 2010, 10:06 PM »
I think I waited too late in the season but I am sold on so many great reviews on a Nils hand auger. Does anyone know where I can find one online? Thanks for the help.

Good choice.  You won't be disappointed.  I got mine at Cabela's.

Well I think I am just out of luck. I even called Nils directly and the guy said he has never sold out like this before and they could have sold hundreds more hade they known the demand was going to be so great. Won't be anymore available til September.

As of this evening, there's still at least one new 6" Nils hand auger at:

Northwoods Sporting Goods
Hancock, MI
906.482.5210
freemanguns@att.net
www.northwoodsports.co m
Cost:  $125.00

BTW, I'm not an employee or owner at Northwoods, just trying to pass on availability to those that still might be interested in one yet this year.

It's been sold. Some guy named skinnytrucker just bought it. Thank you very much Chris Raymond for letting me know about this. Good part is I get free shipping. One of my co-workers will be in the area of Hancock next week and will pick it up for me. I love my job. I'm really excited about trying it out, I hope it lives up to all the hype. Thanks again Chris

You're most welcome.  I've got a Nils in 6" manual and 8" gas and couldn't be more happy with them.  I know some folks think there's a bunch of puffery going on with all the comments on Nils but until you use one, you can't imagine how nice they are.

I was able to use my new Nils 6" hand auger for the first time today and all I can say is OH MY GOD!!!!! I thought I had a pretty good auger but little did I know. This Nils auger is simply AMAZING. I drilled thru 19" of ice in bout 22 secs. I cannot tell you guys how much more I enjoyed fishing today just because of how much easier it was to drill holes and move around. Thank you again to Chris Raymond for informing of where I could find what is probably the last known Nils hand auger for sale.
