How to choose a drill?

In anticipation of the season of winter fishing and then in the winter, on various Internet forums and websites, does not stop the discussion of what the drill is better, and even beginners do not have it, ask the question: “How to choose a drill?”

“Patriots”, I advise beginners to master hungry, to look attentively at the budget ledoburom domestic production, for example – “NERO” (NERO) or “TONAR” (TONAR). Other anglers recommend beginners to immediately take a “thing”, save up if you have difficulties in Finance, and buy ledobur Mora or Rapala, Swedish and Finnish manufacturing, respectively.

Within these groups, there is debate about what is better – drill “Tonar” or “Nero”, “Mora” or “Rapala, and others watching the discussion by the claim that their makeshift drill, is the best.

All is good, here only for beginners in fishing, and it is not clear what the drill is better and why.

We will try to answer this question from the point of view of common sense and experience, relying only on the working properties of the ice, not on manufacturer and price. Ie throw subjectivity, and commitment to one another grade Boers.

First of all, try to classify a few picks.

Picks come in manual, motor and electro-drills, i.e. ledoburami having a Moto or drive. This division for energy sources.

Electro and metaldoor, are used much less frequently than the manual, when the ice thickness from half a meter or more. To dwell on them will not, especially because the drill has the same device as the regular, manual ice screws.

The separation of the ice screws on the boring diameter, the most important and the first thing you need to start by considering the question of the choice of the ice.

The principle is simple – the smaller the diameter, the easier and faster bore hole drill zithromax price. The most common diameters ledoburov commercially available, are in the range of 100 – 150 mm. For catching medium-sized fish (perch, roach) is fine picks with a diameter of 80 -120 mm. fishing For bream, because of its width you need to look at the side of the Boers with a diameter of 130 mm and more.

Further, there is a division according to the type of cutting tool bit. This can be a cutting head, like the Rapala ice screws, or detachable blades.

Both designs have advantages and have disadvantages. Cutting head, and more the perfect tool for ice drilling, but there is a flaw that calls into question its advantage – price.

If the head of such ice screws have become unusable, its replacement will cost almost as much as buying a new ice screws. Independently to sharpen her extremely difficult.

More common are ice-axes with removable blades, so that the same are separated by types – flat and spherical. Flat knives the most simple, but can have different sharpening – straight, half-round, serrated sharpening.

Type knife sharpening affect their cutting properties. It is believed that the knife round sharpening better drilled “wet ice”, and gear “dry” and less prone to blunting and even once when drilling the ice with sand, continue to drill, while the other knives that become unusable and require replacement or sharpening.

Novice anglers, we recommend to start with, cheap drill some sort of well-known brands, with the ability to use it with the knives of the flat type with different sharpening. This will be the most affordable and versatile option.

As practice shows, are passionate about winter fishing angler, one of the ice often enough and it becomes a few different types, for different fishing.

I hope this will help You to choose your first ice screw!
