    The clam plate with a 6" swede bore works great when I am fishing St Clair or Simcoe for perch. If I am after walleye on the Thames River or Quinte I use my gas powered 8"
    All depends on the fish you are after IMO but if you are on a budget go with the 6" hand auger

    Always used an 8 since i was little, but just got my new 6 pistol bit yesterday. If that works well the 8 gasser is going up for sale.

    Got out yesterday and drilled around 30 holes. Mine is the gen 1 wo the centrepoint. Worked great. Good length so you are not hunched over like a hand auger conversion. With the drill attached (no battery), still lighter than my old 8" hand auger.

    Sometimes Kijiji is great...other times not so much
    I hope everything works out great for you but I would be not likely to buy a used auger unless I could actually see it work.
    Just someone tapping it on the ice to clear off slush can totally wreck a auger and it's hard to see.
    Once the blade attachment points have been bent out of the proper angle the auger is scrap.

    OP, you can always buy replacement blades if they dull.
