A couple of weeks ago, Altan mentioned that there were new Dewalt Extreme Tri-Flute drill bits coming out in the UK and Europe.
The new Dewalt Extreme Tri-Flute drill bits feature a 1/4″ hex shank, screw tip for self-feeding, cutting spars for cleaner and faster holes and extended drilling life, and 3 cutting edges for optimum chip removal.
Is it just me, or do the new Dewalt EXTREME drill bits look very familiar?
Speaking as someone who buys the Irwin bits on occasion, I wouldn’t mind giving the Dewalt version a try. The blue coating on Irwin spade bits usually wears away quite quickly anyway, at least in my experience, and so is there any disadvantage to the seemingly uncoated Dewalt bits?

For something like this, do you have a preference for Dewalt black or Irwin blue? Assuming of course that these are the same. Or would you go with a different brand’s auger-style drill bits?
