Re: Need all your help. Power auger question.
both our strike masters are clockwise. You can tell from the pitch of the auger blade kit when you look at them side by side. Have been very happy with our 2-stroke Lazer Mag - have still had some issues with the Strike Lite, only due to some engineering concerns and it's tough to get a 4 stroke up and super happy in cold weather at altitude.
Personal vote is a Strikemaster - their customer service is superb, they've taken good care of us, and in the 12 years that hubby has had his old Lazer Mag, it's been serviced all of twice, and it runs great, even with fuel left in it all summer and not the best maintenance. All Strikemaster power heads can use nearly any blade kit they make, from a 5 inch to a 10 inch, on the 2 horse powerheads. If you can get a good 12v source, the Electra is awesome because it's no fumes, but unless you have a way to tote a battery, it might not be the most convenient.
Good luck whichever way you go. See ya out there.
More importantly, SET THE HOOK!
I still say he married me because he took me ice fishing and I still wanted to go fishing with him again!
