Rated 2 out of 5Â by Mudmonkey Lightweight
I sought a new wooden handle and this was all they had in stock. I don't have a huge amount of 'pick experience' so thought it worth a try.
Although it looks good and is easy to locate and keep clean - it felt immediately flimsy. It lasted about a fortnight of me being kinder to it that to my former wooden one, before it snapped.
If you need a lightweight handle for lightweight work, then this may be great for you. If you need it to work hard and take what you can give it, without worrying - this isn't for you....

Rated 4 out of 5Â by scotsengineeer Good replacement
My old hickory pickaxe handle cracked, and my excellent experience with Roughneck fiberglass sledgehammer and splitting maul left me in no doubt that this pickaxe handle would be rugged and durable.
True, the feel of the handle is not the same, a little thinner and less bulge to stop it slipping through my hand, but excellent value.

1st one broke, but have to say thank you to Screw fix exchanged without any messing. Did offer a refund but thought would give this another go.
