Thought I'd have to wait until September before getting excited about new gear, but I hear 13 fishing released their 2018/19 special edition of the BB freefall in purple at ICAST this week. Couldn't find a pic of it though...

Can't wait to see what else this year brings!

I'm not real sure what would require any attention with a cordless drill and auger. 

I stick the battery in it and go fishing, when/if it goes dead I stick another one in. Most times a single 9ah Milwaukee is plenty.

I tried the rechargeable drill auger thing, prefer the Jiffy. Jiffy requires my preferred level of attention, zero.

Yeah you're good with two 5s and two 9s, that'd be one heck of a day of drilling if you burned through all those. I still only have the two 5s it came with. Was planning on getting a bigger battery this year after seeing what the 5s could handle last year.

Not sure what the 12ah weighs, I found 2.4# on the MKE website for the 9ah but nothing listed for the 12.

"For those running the MKE drill/auger combo, new 12ah battery for this year. Glad I didn't upgrade to the 9ah last year, 12ah is a whole new game changer."

I have 2 5s and 2 9s. I got 1 9 with a MKE weed wacker and another 9 from Ebay for 90.00. If the 12 is heavier than the 9, I'm good with what I have. Any idea on what the weight dif is?

I need a couple new tipups and 2 tip downs. That is the extent of my new gear.

If Shappell comes out with an insulated FX100 I will be one happy guy.

"what new grounding break ice fishing item was released in the last two years?  "Me too" products don't really count like the marcumm recon.  Aqua Vu Micro was out years before that."

I heard Shappell is coming out with the FX100 in an insulated version.  Can't wait to pick one up
