STRIKEMASTER 8 INCH HAND AUGER ?

(1/2) > >>

HaveAuger:
For those who use a hand auger...I was looking at the SM 8inch handauger. I have a mora 6 incher (15 year old) . I was curious if cutting is that much improved and what the comparison may be 6 mora vs 8 strike master? Any thoughts on these?

IceBalls:
No matter how much improved the 8 inch auger may be, you're going to have a much  harder time getting through the ice with it, compared to the 6inch auger.
I bought a six incher last year after many years cutting with an 8 inch...the 6 incher cuts faster with much less effort....and I still have no problem getting my fish up through the hole  (maybe I just don't catch large enough fish !!!! )

PS......buy a power auger in 8 inch !!!!!  You'll love it!!!!

LoneWolf:
If you have to have an 8" hand auger go with the Nils Master hand auger. It cuts easier and faster than most other 6" hand augers.

HaveAuger:  I agree with LoneWolf.......get the Nils hand auger.  I have a 6 inch and it cuts like butter with almost no effort.  I am sure the 8 inch will do the same! ;)

MikeThePike:
I just picked 1 up and will let you know as soon as I get a chance to try it out (this Sunday)
