 Nils replacement head
Comments: Fish USA is a great shop to order from. Very fast and easy to order. I have had my nils 6" auger for 5 years and has performed awesome ! I figured it was time to get a replacement head just incase, well after using the new head only 3 times disaster struck. While drilling a hole I hit some drift wood that was lodged in the ice and now it is complete junk. Won't cut hot butter. Not the augers fault but my only complaint is that it is to delicate. It only took a few turns to ruin the blade. Guess I will put the old head back on and spend another chunk of $$ for a new one

 Nils Cutting Head Replacement
Pros: Easy to drill, easy to change out
Cons: Not very durable, Impossible to sharpen on your own
Comments: I bought it because I messed mine up by accidently cutting through some blown in sand, but I wanted to have an extra replacement anyways in case I need it. So if you fish where there is some dirt or sand mixed in with ice or where it's shallow and you can run into the bottom or a rock, it's probably not a good choice for you. I love my Nils auger though. I can drill three holes while my buddy is working on his first. I have to agree with other reviewers: you do have to baby it. The other issue I have is it's too complicated to sharpen. According to Nils USA customer service, you have to send it off to an authorized service and they gave me a couple of location that both were out of state so I'm guessing it will be pricey, hence a 4-star rating. Otherwise, a great product!
 OEM Replacement
Pros: Lightweight, Wicked fast, very sharp
Comments: This is an OEM Replacement and cuts like new (because it is). Mine has worked very well and have no regrets.

 Great cutter!
Pros: Great Design, Durable
Comments: These things will drill hundreds of holes and still cut like they're brand new! Best hand auger around! Can also be sharpened to get even more life out of them, Nils has a list of approved sharpeners.
 replacement cutter head
Pros: cuts fast
Cons: durability
Comments: I ordered a Nils 4.5" hand auger last year, and was 100% satisfied with its of the few fishing products that lived up to the hype. But on my first trip this season, it wouldn't cut at all, despite no abuse of any kind during the off-season. I ordered a replacement of the cutting head and it arrived quickly. Replacing the heads was quick and easy, and the new head cuts like butter. I'd give it 5 stars, but am concerned that getting only 1 season out of a pricey cutter head might lead me to looking for another auger down the road.
 First replacement
Pros: very sharp, easy to change out
Comments: Have loved my nils auger since the day I bought it. I bought this replacement head for a backup while I ship out the original head for sharpening (five years old and still cuts better than anything I owned in the past and I have made tons of hole with it over the years!)
 Spare bit a good idea.
Pros: Durable
Comments: When i send my bit in to get sharpened it takes a few weeks to get it back. having a spare keeps me fishing cause without my Nils, I'm not fishing.
 good buy!
Pros: very sharp, easy to change out
Comments: I bought the replacement head as a spare for my 6" hand auger. As far as im concerned i can drill more holes and faster with my nils than someone with a power its lightweight and folds up to fit in my hut.
Pros: Wicked fast
Comments: Great replacement head for a great auger. Piece of advice-baby it. Before I knew how to handleaugers, I would toss it gently on the ice, not put cover on right away, not store it correctly, etc. One little ding can throw the cutting efficiency off significantly. Take care of it and it will last

 Nils Auger
Comments: I will use nothing but a Nils auger, fastest cutting auger I have ever used.
 Fantastic as Usual
Pros: Durable, Great Design, Easy To Use
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: I bought this as a backup when the original head needs sharpening which is about every four years! Every time I'm out on the ice someone asks what brand of auger is that? It out cuts my power auger.

 Nils Auger
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Great Design, Sharp
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: I use nothing but nils. All you have to do is cut one hole with a nils auger and you will be sold. I keep a spare blade at the house so when I ship one to get a new edge on it I can keep cutting. I fish tournaments with this auger and it never lets me down.

 8" Nils Master Auger Head
Pros: Great Design, Versatile, Durable, Easy To Use
Best Uses: Ice Fishing
Comments: I fished this winter on lakes that had 30"+ of ice, and it took between 22 to 23 seconds to slice through it. It's an amazing auger, and it's nice to be stealth when everyone else is making noise on the lake.
