g'day bluejeansron
You have 3 sizes in the picks , baby bear, mumma bear and poppa bear, I bought the mumma bear and at times wish I had the baby bear , excellent pick with the side raking built in , the only modification I would suggest is the round handle, get s a bit hard to hold after a long day digging lead shot, lol, looking at 3 options ,wrapping leather tonging around it or checkering the handle like a gun stock so my old hands can get a better grip, or finding a big tea tree bush so I can make an oval shaped handle , tea tree is an excellent small handle timber , tough as, but probably not commercially viable for a handle company to use , have you had any enquiries about a tiny pick, when I'm in the hole after the target the larger picks are a bit awkward, size and weight wise , at the moment i use an old knife but you can't rake with a knife just a thought saves me making one
my regards

Hi Mate, If you have a pick like mine with a round handle you have a KNOCK off because i use all factory oval sledge or block buster handles, Ron.

Hi Ron, Today I received my Little Brother Digger, Good looking strong pick. In your ads. they are described as 1600gm in average. So, I put the pick on my scales. It felt a little bit too heavy in my hand, so I weighed it, it came up 2068gm. It's way too heavy for this old bugger with a crook left hand. What can we do about this. CHeers, lanette and Hermann Steffen.

Hi Mate,They may be a few mills heaver than others but get in a bit of hard ground they wont make your wrist ake , The thing is if you can dig and refill a extra 10 holes a day its worth it, Ron.

These picks are truly the best IMHO.
I have 5 total (only 2 of Ronalds), but only take Ronald's to the goldfields with me.
