Default Spud Bar---where to buy?

I always used Rad's, but he moved away. It's a great tool for testing ice thickness. He bought his at budget in Granby, but I didn't see any up there last year. Anyone know where I can get one?

Check Home Depot and Lowes. I have gotten them there before but they are a little heavier than some that I have seen.

I would try giving Murdoch's a call...last year about this time I went to the one in Littleton and I was surprised to see their stock on sleds (just to the right of the main entrance).

Ranchers need spud bars to break up the ice on watering tanks. (they also have great prices on heaters for huts and gun safes).

Man I would love to have a nice light spud. I'm thinking it would be all aluminum except for the business end which would be a replaceable steel piece. I have a spud bar which is all steel and weighs like 35 lbs. Who wants to carry that extra weight on thin ice?
