Drilling Solutions


SLIPSTREAM® bits are specifically designed to target non-homogeneous downhole components such as bridge and frac plugs and are capable of handling the cast iron or ceramic slips as well as the softer core of those plugs. Tungsten carbide inserts and hardfaced steel teeth are arrayed in the cutting structure to cut both hard and soft materials found in frac plugs. High performance journal bearing and shirttail protection allow for both motor and rotary applications when drilling plugs or other downhole equipment.


  • Frac plug drill out of any conventional type plug used in well fracking.
  • Clean out producing well bores.
  • For all motor and rotary applications.
