The Sparrows Bogota style picks are pretty good and cheap enough.
The life span of a Bogota style pick depends a lot on the way it is used. The less levering that you do the longer it will last.
Ri describes it as a "coffee shakes" movement.
All that being said any Bogota style pick will eventually break because of the design and the way it is used. I have had some home made ones that have lasted for a couple of years of solid use before retiring themselves.
Back to Sparrows, I purchased a set a couple of years ago and one broke the first time I used it. I emailed Sparrows and they sent me a couple as replacement. So can't complain about that.
Though I have a lot of "professional" picks I tend to almost exclusively use my home made ones, so I can't really say how they will hold up.
If you want to get some Bogota style picks, a set from Sparrows is pretty inexpensive. There are the more expensive - and probably more rugged, Ri endorsed (I believe), Serapick titanium.
Once you work out how to use they they are almost like cheating - magic.
(on some locks).
On the large Lockwoods we get over here they are like master keys.
