    The one I've seen that works the best is the one with the ball top. I believe if you google wigglepicks.com you'll find a variety. I'm needing a new wiggle pick soon myself.

    http://youtube/s5J8oNpZuQcCheck this one out by Creekdalton, I like the wood handles just so its lighter and the handle doesnt get cold in the winter. Its not super bulky like most of em I see.

    James Kemp pick hands down. I know James personally, very good guy and will treat you right. I have 4 of his picks, don't know why because I have only used one of them for the last 6 years. Everyone on the forum can vouch for me when I say I move a lot of dirt. No I mean a whole lot of dirt. I dig almost every weekend and my pick takes the punishment that no other can. Buy the one with the ball on the back and you will regret it. I tried one for 5 minutes and that is all I wanted of it.
    My other three Kemp picks stay at my shop until I take someone with me then they get used a little. I just like the fact that when James does get to old too make them anymore I will have extras although I imagine the one I use all the time will last me till I am too old to dig.
    Not a plug for James I just know he makes the best picks around.
    I know just enough to know that I don't know what I think I know.

    Well you don't swing at the dirt with them. You push them into the ground and as you are going down you kinda give it a slight wiggle hence the name wiggle pick. As you wiggle and put some weight on the back of the blade it will sink the blade into the ground. Once you are down in the dirt you either pull back or push forward and the dirt falls out in front of you.
    The next time I go I will take some pictures and post them.
