Bosch Daredevil Multipurpose Drill Bits help you drill through masonry, brick, block, tile, metal, wood, and plastic. Did you notice we said “and”? These bits power their way through multiple materials without forcing you to swap out drill bits. The individual drill bits range in diameter from 5/32- to 3/8-inch and feature a tungsten carbide multi-grind head. You also get an impact-rated hex shank that works with both hammer drills and impact drivers.

Our Take

Power tool manufacturers have really focused their attention on premium drill bits over the last few years. After all, even the best tool can have a hard time overcoming a poor accessory. Although some of us have been slow to adopt, still considering a package of cheap, throwaway bits better than premium bits, many of us have been won over by the performance of premium bits. Bosch Daredevil Multipurpose Drill Bits seem to validate that new paradigm.

The word Multipurpose or Hybrid often gives us pause. However, in the case of drill bits, we think it’s ok. The bits just have to be tough enough for the hardest of materials, and that’s what Bosch claims regarding the Daredevil Multipurpose drill bits.

The tips are ground on four surfaces to minimize skating and make clean holes in any material from masonry, brick, block, tile, and metal to wood and plastic.  The diameter ranges from 5/32- to 3/8-inch will be sufficient for most work. Any larger and you’ll probably be using a small rotary hammer. Importantly, the flutes are fairly steep, which will help remove waste quickly and keep the bit sharper for longer.

How much longer? Nine times—that’s right, Mr. Rooney—Bosch claims the Daredevil Multipurpose drill bits have up to 9X the life of standard drill bits.

What About Some Firsthand Use?

Tim Johnson over at Shop Tool Review has put these through several tests for us and has a full video review ready to go. See what he thinks of Bosch Daredevil Multipurpose bits in some real-world testing.

“Whether you’re a pro or a DIYer, Bosch Daredevil multipurpose bits deliver the same advantage – one bit that can drill in a wide variety of materials. In many cases, it’s just not efficient to change bits all the time on the jobsite. With Daredevil multipurpose bits it’s not an issue – one bit does the job of several, so it saves time but it also saves the hassle of carrying around a pocketful of bits.”
