New to Maine
but catching on quickly !
I have been ice fishing for 30+ and have an old eskimo auger probably that old,and every year I would get that auger out and fix what needed fixing,spark plus,carb needing diaphram and smelling to high heaven of gas.Again,same story this year,get it out try get running,needed carb fixed, would run with choke partially closed,take carb off,gas smell all over,and my lovely wife says"let go see what is out there." Go to LLBean,looked at augers and they have many jiffy augers but I wasn't sold on those.I spied this Ion battery auger and had to even ask what it was !!! I said,SERIOUSLY !!! As many of you know their policy is if you don't like it,blah blah blah ! So in my mind,I was going to take it out,drill hole and return it to prove it was a joke.! Well,let me tell you that this thing kicks butt!!!I totally shocked me !! It's light,it's fast,seems very sturdy,(might not last 30 years like my ol eskimo)but whew! This thing rocks!! welcome to the 21st century !!! Ice fishing made easy this year... Real easy! My wife can use it ! Can't wait to get the granson out and let them go at it! Bring on the Ice Derby's!!!!
