BPS 8" Hand Ice Auger
Cuts through 20 inches of ice on 30 seconds when new with sharp blades. Dont know what happens when blades get dull yet. Really impressive and surprised how fast it cuts through ice.

bought it in jan. haven't had a problem with the auger. did not experience bolt problems so far as other reviews have said, seems to be strong but had problems drilling through existing holes with new ice over them. it will not drill through just anything, but a fresh cut thru new ice works real well. have drilled twenty holes or so over two days perfectly. went thru 20 inches of ice in less than a minute which is really nice considering the price. no paint chipping so far. good buy definitely

I bought this auger with my BPS reward points so it was free. I read the reviews and used lock-tite on the blade screws and not had an issue. Also I think that the people complaining about the bolt that holds the handle together probably didn't tighten it enough allowing the handle to "work" against the bolt causing it to break.
As I said, this auger is awesome especially for the price. It will cut through 12" of ice in less than a minute with minimal effort. I would highly recommend this auger. It also comes with a blade protector.

Best you can buy!
For the last 2 years I've had the Strikemaster "Mora" auger. I've always thought it was a decent rig for the money. Last year my uncle got the "Lazer" model and after fishing with him I contemplated getting one since it cut a little faster. 2 weeks ago I went ice fshing with my cousin who had just purchased this BPS auger in 6". The next day I immediately went to Bass Pro and got one! It hands down outperforms any other hand auger I've seen! It cut through 12" of ice in literally half the time my Mora and uncles Lazer did. I havn't used it alot yet so I havn't had any of the screws/bolts loosen up like previously mentioned yet. I plan on gettingsome locktite to prevent that. I highly recommend this auger! If you wanna spend more time fishing and less time drilling with all the huffing and puffing this auger is a must!
