I ran it over with my wheeler...it came out the back
Glad to hear that worked out for you, Joe. No reason to be embarrassed,  I think Jiggin puts all his augers through that test?  :-\

Glad things are working out for you, HuntnFish603.
If that woman from Ardisam is who I think she is, she's always been a sweetheart and very knowledgeable too.
Fish USA really stepped up to the plate.
I've never had any issues with things I've bought there and fast service!
Good for them.

Not embarrassment hete...far from the dumbest thing I've ever done.

I just got a tad lazy and complacent. ..it was a good durability test

WOW, that is some great customer service! Mine shows up tomorrow night from another vendor,hopefully my 10" cuts alright ! I'm glad you got your issues finally resolved. Are there any tips for cutting with an auger that doesn't have the starter chisel tip like a Jiffy ?

I use a Nils and just slight downward pressure is all you need...don’t force it and keep it straight

HnF, Thanks for the info as the pic I saw looked void of the chisel tip.my bad! My auger will arrive today and can't wait to try it out.
If people concentrated on the really important things in life there would be a shortage of tip-ups !

Very nice to hear. Fish USA is very good. Customer service is excellent.  Thats what kinda service you get when the company is run by actual fisherman.  Very good story. Good.luck

New auger at my door at 10 am. Took it out for a test after work. Worked flawless!!
What a difference from the first one. Side by side could definitely see it was off.
Ready for tomorrow!
Although it won't be pretty. there was already a lake on top of the lake, and the heavy rain hasn't even come yet.

Good to hear about Ion and FishUSA!

My 10" will finally be here tomorrow (I did not get mine from FishUSA).

I just sent Cold Snap an email asking if they were going to make a 10" Ion X cover and they replied that they may make one next year.  My cold snap cover works really well to keep the snow off my Nils head between holes and minimize icing when it is really cold.  Ion x 10 owners Send Cold Snap an email asking about a cover for the 10's to inspire them to make a 10" cover next year.
