    Sounds like you would need a custom job. Keep in mind that wet sand is heavy and the more “bite” you take out of the sand the heavier and more stressful it will be on the scoop and your Joints as you dig.

    Keep in mind that different soil/sand conditions benefit from different designs.

    (deleted by mod posting link to nonsupporting vendor)

    THEY make some very nice scoops that penetrate pretty fast. They have different kinds for different sand/rocky gravel conditions.

    Good luck

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    And there's American made Stealth scoops. Stainless Steel and you have to be pretty rough with one to damage it. I have the 920iX, or 9" wide.

    They're expensive.

    Can't say enough about my stealth 720i . Simply the best made imo. Pricey but will last forever. All stainless steel. Thought I would need a bigger one too until the 720i delivered to my house, and i was happy i did not get the bigger one, it is plenty big. Keep in mind the weight of the 920 because you'll have to add a wooden handle { unless you going carbon } but if your set on a larger scoop , go with the stealth 920ix xtreme

    The T-rex 9" is a beast and I had at times more sand in the scoop than I could handle. Lost it and went with the smaller one with C/F handle and love it.

    Me too. Can't imaging wanting more material in the scoop. Most of the finer sand is sifted by the time it reaches surface, but it gets heavy when full of stones.

    I guess somebody with a lot more upper body strength could handle something bigger.

    Hey Casper....

    Must have been some bad food you ate while on vacation: You are looking awful short from what I remember you as being. OR
    Maybe my monitor is out of wack.

    One must know his own limits and lugging around a scoop as large as the CAT would be a problem for me.

    4" for dry sand and 6" in the water is fine for me.

    Ditto. The scoop is sound, even in rock piles, but a ***** trying to find a handle that will take the heavy load for a long time...

    "Who makes a extra large sand scoop?"
    I made a couple of sand scoops.We are having some wet winter days here on the coast and thus the sand is staying wet and packed.
    I tried them out one time and they are not good in wet packed sand.I'm glad I brought along my old trusty shovel or it would
    have been a tough day.I'm taking it that your beach hunts are fluffy sand. I will never pull these things out again until
    maybe summer when the sand dries and becomes lose enough to just scoop the sand with no problems.
