ION Quick Release/Anchor attachement
« on: Nov 11, 2020, 12:48 PM »
Hi I have a Gen 1 8" Ion and was curious about people's experience with the quick release/Anchor attachment?  I will mostly be using it for the Anchor application.  On Amazon there are mixed reviews about folks finding that most anchors wobble and find it unusable for that application. Curious on feedback from someone who has used it.
I'm just here for the ice fishing groupies..

I have the same auger. I really like the quick release for detaching the auger from the head for transporting. Then reattach when ready to drill.  I have used the auger head for drilling anchors and agree it is a little awkward due size of the head. But it is better than hand tightening.

My experience is that it really depends on the anchors.

The heavy thick ones with a large vertical cut through the threads seem to work best with powered installation, at least in my experience.
