I would go with the Strikemaster Laser. I actually have an old Strikemaster (15 + years) that I bent the original auger on a couple years ago. Went and bought the Laser auger and put it on. Made a big difference in the speed of the hole drilling.

I wouldn't get the strikemaster mag 2000 with the 2 hp Tecumseh. maybe it's just me but this will be it's second winter and I have already had to clean the carb several times and the compression valve has caused trouble. The rope broke with a pretty gentle pull which wrecked my trip. And I don't think there are adjustment screws on the carburetor which sucks because it seems to be adjusted wrong.

I have the Jiffy and I am very happy with it. The only drawback is the weight of it.

I've switched to StrikeMaster from Jiffy.
I have a Lazer now from that Legend and Stealth Pro STX.
That new auger cuts way faster.Almost 2-1!

Ive'd used both Jiffy & strilemaster. I have a strikemaster mag2000 now that is about 10-12 yeas old. I like it. But I bought it back them for it's being light-weight.

These type of topics usually end up being like the FORD/CHEVY/DODGE -which is best ? type topics. I am going to watch this one until it changes to one of those. Then I'll ignore it like the others I have just mentioned.

Why don't you go out & talk to some of the icefishermen you see out on the ice. Tell them what you are asking here & ask them if you can try out their auger & see what they say... You may be surprised at the folks who will start up their auger & say, " sure... Go drill a few hole"...("Over there, away from here...of course"... wink smiley )

Give it a try, because until you actually "test -drive" them, What will you actually know?

Good Luck!
