You really won't know what you want until you have tried many of the different augers that are available if you don't have any experience yet.

You have to spend some time on the ice to find out what your preferred fishing style really is and what you enjoy doing most as well as what you don't want to do pertaining to auger usage.


There are many variables and these will help determine what type of auger will work best for your intended usage.

Wait on the ion until you se a youtube video in real ice conditions !! I think they will have a MAJOR battery issue with the cold of MN , If you fish in IA , or southern WI it may do allright . GOOD LUCK !!!

Remember you will have this auger for a long time so get what you want !! not what someone wants to sell you! I personaly have a strikmaster 3 HP.laser that the GUY at the sporting goods store said was the best , and it was in it's time , but at 50 lbs - drilling a pile of holes is a full workout !! Go lite and go Fast !!!!! I think your looking in the rite place . GOOD LUCK !

I wouldn't touch the ION auger. Anyone who has worked outside in the cold with lithium battery hand tools know that when the batteries get cold they drop their charge. Dead battery with no way to recharge? Not for me.
