The woodeaters are the only VA product I've used. The are much better than the Irwins. My guys all have the irwins because the VA are hard to find. And I've been using them for 20 years beating the he// out of them.

For the larger holes over 1 1/2" I use the Milwaukee self feed bits that you linked earlier.
