    I've got a wilcox, it came with my daughters bounty hunter. it's not very good for digging around here, it bends to easy.
    a lesche is hard to bend, but mine is bent

    Thats crazy. I could probably stand on mine with something under the center and it won't bend. I am gonna see if I take some pics of it in action.

    I saw the same thing at Home depot for $9.00 so I bought it.

    I thought this looks very interesting and I've been wanting an extra digger, so I went to Lowes yesterday and bought one. Thanks for the tip.

    I have one as well, but it is tough to get into the ground due to the forked point.

    Ames or lesche?: I use both

    The Ames True Temper is a fantastic value for the price. Better than many diggers. I used one for the first half of the '09 season. It works well in soft, rich soil when the digger is under little stress. The problem I had with it was when I got to the bottom of a deep hole and found a larger target. This sometimes requires a bit of prying with your digging tool to free the object. A bit of modest prying is also needed for popping plugs in harder, drier soil. I began hearing and feeling popping and cracking sounds coming from the handle of the Ames. I'm not talking about trying to remove a stretch of concrete sidewalk with it, I am just talking about typical digging. This is a problem with any tool where plastic is molded to steel. I decided to retire the ames or keep as backup before I found out the hard way which hunt would be it's last. Then I picked up the lesche. For me, this was well worth the extra money spent. Why? The lesche is designed better and much stronger. The farther offset blade pops any plug with ease. The design also allows you to dig a much deeper hole much faster. And also much handier down inside a hole than the ames. The lesche even refills holes much faster and with greater ease. It feels much more solid than the Ames. From a guy who owns both: At $9-14, the Ames True Temper is a must have. Its a very capable digger and better than some pricier digging tools. But the lesche wins hands down. You cant argue with solid construction and a better design for the job. JJ

    I agree! I beat the heck out of mine. I have stomped it with my foot, pried with it, and hit many large rocks. Still good as new. I attached a bungie cord to it and my tool belt. It makes it fast and easy to pull out and toss back in my belt pouch. The only problem I have had is in a wooded area. I just unhook it then. Works for me.

    Re: Best Digging Tool Ever!!!!

    I started out with one of these, also tried the Ames and several others. Broke 'em all. Then I got a Hori-hori. Nice thick blade, wooden handle. Cuts, pries, saws through roots. I've used it for 3 years and never even had to sharpen it.

    Re: Best Digging Tool Ever!!!!

    I've had the True Temper tool also and it worked good, but after I bought my Lesche
    I gave it to a friend, a couple months later he bought one. My friend went detecting
    with his brother in-law and another guy and they bought a Lesche that night.
    I've never bent my Lesche and there were a few times I was sure I must have bent it
    but I was always surprised to see it was straight as an arrow. I just got the Lesche
    shovel and I can't wait to see how it works in those root infested cellar holes.
