    The Estwing geo-paleo pick is a great pick, durable, and it really tears into the material. Not sure how long the handle is, but I've dug some deep holes with it.

    I like a pick with a long handle (3 ft.) if I know I'm going to be digging deep, and a much shorter handle with a lighter pick head if I'm working shallow to bedrock gold; so, the length and weight depends on the type of digging I know I'll be doing.

    All the best,

    Lanny

    a light pick and a crevicing tool are my tools for the bedrock hunting, the heavy pick fraught with magnets is what I carry when hunting deeper ground
