Choosing the Right Size Ice Auger: A Guide from RAZR Ice Augers
Ice fishing is an exciting and popular activity, and having the right equipment can make all the difference.
One of the most important pieces of equipment for ice fishing is an ice auger. However, with so many different sizes and types of ice augers available, it can be difficult to know which one to choose. In this blog post, we'll provide a guide for customers who are trying to decide which size ice auger to purchase from RAZR Ice Augers.
The first thing to consider when choosing an ice auger is the diameter of the hole you want to drill. RAZR Ice Augers make ice augers in various hole sizes, including 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 10 inches. Smaller augers (around 4-6 inches) are best for targeting panfish or other small species, while larger augers (8-10 inches) are better for species like northern pike or lake trout. Keep in mind that larger holes will require more power and may be more difficult to drill.
Another factor to consider is the type of blades on the auger. RAZR Ice Augers offer both curved and flat blades. Curved Blades are the most advanced blades available, and offer an unmatched speed and efficiency on the ice.
The length of the auger is also important to consider. RAZR Ice Augers make ice augers in various lengths, ranging from 31-42 inches. Shorter augers are better for fishing regions that may experience up to 25 inches of ice, while our full length augers are able to drill through 36 inches of ice without the need for an extension . Keep in mind that longer augers may be heavier and more difficult to transport.
Finally, you'll want to consider your own physical abilities and preferences. If you have a bad back or limited strength, a lighter auger may be a better choice. Either way, we have an auger to meet your needs.
In summary, choosing the right size ice auger from RAZR Ice Augers depends on a variety of factors, including the size of the hole you want to drill, the type of blade, the power source, the length of the auger, and your own physical abilities and preferences. By considering these factors, you can find the perfect ice auger for your needs and enjoy a successful day on the ice.
