I stopped by the Strikemaster booth at the ice show, and they said the flighting and blades are indeed made by Mora in Sweden.

I ran across another auger there I'd never heard of, but it looked pretty nice. I'm thinking of trying one. Anybody else see these?

So I was at Cabela's the other day looking at things I really don't need, when I ran across the new strikemaster lithium auger. I'm wondering what everybody's opinions on them are. I had two major concerns. First off the power button seemed really aquard/junky, and a sales associate said they've had to send multiple back to strikemaster due to the switch not functioning. Second the flighting doesn't have the Mora made in Sweden sticker on it like the lasers do. I hope they aren't made in China again. My Dad had a Chinese flighting from the last time they went to Asia and it was trash. I want to buy one, but I'm going to hold off till I know more.

I did this with mine, but altered the original battery compartment so I could still use two cylinders. Honestly I still don't use the fan that much, but was a fun project to tinker with nonetheless.

I have a SBE, and my Dad has a SBE2, and they both are good guns. On my SBE, I replaced the recoil spring/tube with a stainless one after 12 years of heavy use. My old man's eagle 2 is still all original and functions beautiful in any weather. I waterfowl hunt extensively and IMO the black eagle is the way to go. I do not have any first hand experience with the SBE3 so I have no relevant opinion on it, but if it's like it's predecessor it should be a great gun too.

Personally, I would get whatever brand the main engine is so they match. I have a 9.9 Merc pro kicker on my Impact 1875, and it works great. Only complaint is it didn't have a trim switch on the motor, just at the remote throttle, so I had to put one on it. The stock 7 pitch prop would only get down to 1.5 mph, so I put a 5 pitch and now I can get down to .8-.9mph which allows me to get the motor rpm up just a touch when I troll at 2.0. I also highly recommend a speed controller like the trollmaster or similar. Really helps keep the correct speed.

Pick the one that you like, and you will be happy.

Pick the one that someone recommended, and you may not be.


Well said!

I've used both. I now only use suffix because I found it to hold its color longer before turning white. Can't go wrong with either one really, they're both good lines IMO.

I think it will be gone by this coming weekend. On Hunters point Cam you can see the main sheet slide to the north a little. Once it moves it doesn't take long to fall apart.
