Pretty funny! Loved where the guy is concentrating like hell, struggling to get his line through the eye of his jighead -- drops of sweat coming off his brow, coach behind him with a stopwatch!

For me training used to include going back to the gym so I don't pull a muscle in my chest trying to start the damn auger! Love my 50v Strikemaster electric! (Yeah I know it's recalled but they aren't getting mine back).

Albow,

You wouldn't return it for a $700 credit?!?!?

"Return to the place where purchased for a full refund, or return to Rapala for a full refund or $700 credit toward a new product on www.rapala.com."

Why waste time training? If a 70 years old guy like Slayer can hike in 5 miles for those tasty perch, surely young kid like you can double that with no problem.

Sure I will -- when the new ones come out! I scored an extra (new) battery for it last year so I figure I'm good until then. In the mean time I'm just super careful with it.

The credit was offered prior to Dec 1, 2015. Rapala did not have a (publicized) solution for the faulty switch. Rapala also did not state whether they would have replacement augers. Like you, I decided not to turn mine in because I liked it and there were no known replacement options. Once they came up with the new switch, they took the credit off the table. I called them early this year after I had an experience with the switch staying on even after I took my finger off of it. They only offered to get the switch replaced:

I have not got mine replaced yet but I will. Could be dangerous.
