I use Lesche diggers due to the hardness of the soil around here. It's still difficult to dig,but at least the digger won't bend or break. I have yet to break one.
 I don't know what type of hunting you'll be doing,but check out the models that they have to offer. They don't come cheap,but at least you'll save money by not replacing them often.

You probably should have a collection of different types of digging tools----especially if you spend a lot of time in city and county parks.   Those locations that specifically allow metal detecting often specify the type of digging tool that can be used.  And it does vary from locality to locality.  Recently read an article (I'm pretty sure it was in Lost Treasure although it might have been in Western and Eastern Treasures) where a guy was digging in a park and was told by legal authorities that he was using the wrong type of tools for that particular park......turns out the city and the county had conflicting regulations.   One permitted only hunting knife/lescher type digging tools and the other permitted only dandelion digger/screwdriver types...


As far as general recommendations go, do a search of the whole forum using the search function at the top of the page.  You'll find several very detailed discussion of the pros and cons of various digging tools as well as several very neat homemade diggers of all varieties.

I have an old GI issue folding entrenching tool that you can buy for a couple dollars and it folds up all nice and neet and easy to carry around on a belt works great and you can dig all kinds of hard dirt with it

That folding entrenching tool will get you in trouble in a park or school yard but I am sure you know that. It is a tool I can't live without around old home sites and bottle dumps. I don't hunt parks etc any longer but when I did I used Old Hickory butcher knifes. You could get them and keep them sharp and were cheap to replace. If I was starting out now think I would look into Lesche diggers seems to be the tool to have.
RJ how do you like that bulb shovel? Often thought they might work.

 Detecting Teach yeah the bulb tool is an awesome tool for ripping a huge cone shape mound of dirt out, the advantage over the shovel is two fold.  Shocked one you can twist the handle as you sink it in the ground. and second it scoops 6 inches out in one easy pull. then dump mound in pile and wave your garrett pointer over it or sift with hand. its actually my secret tool. Mad
