2021 Jiffy Ice Drill Hand Auger..looks to have a metal/steel shaft ...with a hybrid Nero/chipper style blades ..again no center point ...may be a hard pass for many anglers .

It pretty much shows that who ever is running the jiffy company is a disconnected person that needs to be removed. Anyone who was running a company that made ice augers would have to be an absolute ignoramus for not knowing that light weight hand augers with center points have become the largest growing segment in ice augers. All jiffy needed to do was take that metal hand Ńuger and put a center point on it and retail it for $75 with a drill adaptor/disk sold seperate for $25 and they would have really gained market........but they leave a center point off it which has been a known issue for people. Makes you wonder what an idiot like the Jiffy CEO gets paid.......hopefully a pink slip.

I saw some very thin pointed snap ring pliers for small ice tackle type rings on the icast program recap but canít find them even on the Spro company site. ? At least they donít look or are described the same.

Thanks again but not the ones I saw. I did see some on a foreign site by Spro that were closer. Now I canít find them on the Wired2 fish email I got either. The ice rings are so small most bottom side of the plier wonít go inside the ring. I ground down a pair but still just marginally work. Gamagatsu makes a small one too.

I make a lot of my own lures from plastics, to jigs, to spraying crank bodies.

If you are looking for a split ring pliers for ice lures or jigs in general.....simply go the the jewelry making section of a store like Walmart or hobbie lobby. Most all the "lure making tools" are 1/2 to 1/4the the cost and can be bought in kits.

Snips, round nose pliers, needle nose pliers, split ring pliers, crimp pliers and small crimp sleeves. The split ring pliers works great on small split rings. However I did find a nicer heavier built small split ring pliers at fleet farm for $4 I picked up the other day.

If you want some pics I can post some.

Looks like St Croix is coming out with another line of rods called the "TUNDRA". 9 models from 26" to 36". from what i can decipher is 3 fiberglass and 6 carbon.

...and not a single new bait casting rod version...  :'(

Still should be interesting how they will all turn out.

not really a blunder ..except that Vexilar did not have a dedicated lithium battery charger for their lithium battery..and recommended their regular SLA charger ..which kinda went against the norms.

here is a 9 ah Vexilar option

My Vex lithium battery worked fine all last season, the only thing I wasn't in love with was how long it took to charge with that standard charger. I wonder if this new charger they show is quicker, or if it's the same charger with a new logo.

Interesting.  Those batteries look a lot like the Milwaukee M12 batteries.  I wonder if they would work.  I'd absolutely get one if that's the case.  I wish Milwaukee would make a knife with all the batteries that I've accumulated at this point.

I thought that also ..my best guess is that the  batteries probably  have a "tab" exclusive to the battery insert .. but saw a video on YouTube where a gut mortified a GreenWorks battery to fit a SM electric drill . it may be as simple as removing some tabs on the battery.

I may have to keep an eye out for a sale and see if I can make it work.  If I get one and it works, I'll make a new thread.
