Hello fellow Ice Fishermen!
We are happy to be a new sponsor of the IceShanty forum! Just a little about ourselves, we are a manufacture of Farm & Ranch accessories (ranchex.com), Outdoor Power Equipment (dirtyhandtools.com), Li-ion power equipment (redbackpower.com), and now…by extension Hunting and Fishing products. Our new website for hunting and fishing is TrophyStrike.com. (all apologies for the crudeness of our other websites, those will be updated in the spring)
We engineer, manufacture/assemble all of our products in Colorado. You’ll see our other brands at Lowes, TSC, Menards, Costco, Homedepot, and many Farm and Ranch Retailers around the country.
We launched the Trophy Strike ice fishing products late this winter. Our hunting line is still in development so we are currently focused on ice fishing for now. Namely: shelters, hand augers, tools, and most excitingly….our new 120v 8” ice auger.
The new Trophy Strike ice auger is truly revolutionary. It is the MOST POWERFUL Li-Ion auger on the market. It features:
• 120v Li-Ion Samsung battery cells
• High output DC brushless motor
• 2 amp hr battery (240 watt hrs of energy)
• Patent pending mechanical impact function to speed up drilling
• Forward and Reverse operation for chip flushing
• Battery charger (approx 1.5 hr charge time, from empty)
• Insulated battery bag
• 32” auger and 12” extension
• 25.2 lbs (120v powerhead, 8" auger, 2 amp-hr battery)
• 5 year limited warranty
• MSRP of $599 (includes all of the above)
Extensive testing has shown that our unit will drill an 8” hole through 20” of ice in about 8 seconds or less. On a fully charged battery, with a 19 deg ambient temperature we drilled over 96 holes during testing. When tested against our leading competitor’s latest offering, the 120v Trophy Strike Ice Auger is up to twice as fast and can drill up to 50% more holes per charge. 1800” of ice drilling per charge is easily obtainable.
We had a limited release of the 120v products this winter and look for a full roll out next fall with even more exciting improvements making their way into the product line for 2017-18.
