The Lesche Digger has been my most-used recovery tool (other than a rounded-off screwdriver) since they came out, but there have been one or two others I like about equally. With regard to the Lesche's durability, that is where I have had a different experience. I had one break. I have a detecting friend who had one break. Another detecting buddy who we also hunt with had two Lesche Diggers break.

Not too sure why other than we were hunting in some hard ground environments and exerting a bit of extra force, but we also experienced those breakages during a 1-2 year period. Since that time I have continued using my same Lesche replacement and haven't had another breakage ... nor have my two friends I mentioned, and they also still hunt the same way and same challenging sites. Either we had some structurally weak product or you have a really durable tool.

I can't say that I have used the Nokta / Makro product, but I will note that one preference I have for it is the grip size and texture. I will say that I plan to be using the Nokta / Makro tool by year's end.
