$84!

For a pick stamped and welded by a blind man in a factory in China!

Christ on a stick, that's highway robbery!

Also just FYI: "This item is not stocked in-store. You can order it from the Special Orders desk in-store or online."

With all the pink faff we've been sold over the decades how the hell haven't they cured that yet? It's got to be up there with PETA and their bear bile farming crap they've been peddling since the 70's.

I'd rather my profits support Australian industry and Australian tool makers than some 'charity' that puts 98% of it's earnings into advertising, marketing, and employing more people to advertise and market their scam. tongue

Pink "faff you reckon?

That's a pretty offensive statement mate. Before my Mum passed away from cancer she suggested we should donate to help cancer research. I still do when I see them out.

Sounds like a great buy thumbsup just don't use it when prospecting it will chip, leave shards of the metal and have you chasing dud targets, true.

That's why prospecting picks cost what they do and the site sponsors have good followers for this simple reason. They know what the quality needs to be and make quality products that treated properly will last you many years, more than a cheap unsuited pick from Bunnings or any other hardware store. The quality equates to longevity making the investment cheap in comparison to unfit poor quality products beer

The one you bought is ideal for the veggie patch not prospecting hard ground thumbsup

The best size it what you're comfortable with perfect some days can be a long hard slog so being comfortable is the best approach imo.

Regarding questions ask the people who make them and their responses should help you with your decision. Just check out the site sponsors and send a pm or jump in any of their threads and ask away, their generally quick with a response beer

You might want to keep that veggie patch pick, the veggies will give you the strength to keep digging when you hit hard ground playful
