It doesn't need to be a perfect fit imo. I have large hands too and the Pecker tool fits just fine.

Brutus of Wyde has an old rawl drive handle he sawed into 3/4 length for wilderness routes. Talk about a pain in the hand!

I've used a lot of hand drills since my first Rawl Drive and the Pecker is the best. SDS system as c4c says, no other tools required. Same bits as for my power drill.

DMT

For most hand drilling (except the way backcountry stuff, where I use my "Rawlette" that Dingus despises) I use a Pecker as well. The colette system is sweet, tool-less, and trouble free. If it only weighed half of what it does, I'd use it for the wayback country as well.

Cheers, Bro. When we going canoing?

Personally I prefer my Pika drill.

It gets the job done just fine and has a nice size handle for people like me with large hands. The big head is nice too in case you happen to miss a swing.
