I got my nils hand auger in last week and had not gotten a chance to try it out, until today. We went out today and we were all impressed to say the least. I went through ice over 24 inches thick in less than 23 seconds! This thing cuts like a hot knife through butter. It takes no down ward pressure to cut and the off set handle is amazing.
I had a buddy bring his strike master lazer out to compare it aginst...I out did him 5 to 1 ! After that i had to hide my auger the rest of the day to keep it from disapearing..
Sorry if sounds like im trying push my opinion off on everyone else, I am just so thrilled with it i had to share!!
