This is the hand auger I have seen people have the most trouble with. Biggest problem last season with them is that about half of them wouldn't cut right out of the box. This lead a few people to assume that hand augers were just too hard to use, and they either decided to give up ice fishing or buy power augers right off. Hope you have a better experience than a few people I saw last year (and had to drill holes for with my Mora).

On the other hand, a couple people I know cut all kinds of hole very easily with their eskimo barracudas.

8" is kinda hard to use by hand even if it cuts well. Most will tell you stick with 6" if you must hand auger.

Have a 8" back up hand crank strike master and 8" holes are tough to cut. Wish I would of bought 6" Only use it when the gas one won't fire up, hopefully I won't need it tommorow at 11 mile.
