    I've had the 920ix for a year now and made the mistake of NOT buying the carbon fiber handle...have replaced the handle (2-wood, 1 PVC pipe) 3x and on 4th (PVC) handle now (all broken in rock piles). The scoop is a monster and indeed saves time digging, esp deeper targets. Care is needed in handling the Stealth 920ix on beach - could cause serious injury if you accidentally hit someone with it.

    I love mine. It has brought me lots of gold. You won't regret buying it. The only thing is that once the wooden handle is in place and used in the water you wont be getting it out again. Other than that it's awesome.

    If you don't look for it you won't find it!! So get out there and dig it.

    That's why I went ahead and opted for the carbon fiber handle. Figured the extra money would be worth it in the long run.

    it all depends on your competence ...
    if you choose the right handle from the ash - buy it ready or correctly treat it with paraffin, then it will last at least 4 years at a price of 1-2 dollars.


    if you need a handle for air travel - then really a handle made of carbon pipe only...

    I couldn't water detect without my stealth scoop and did put some 1/4 inch hardware wire in the scoop which has saved lots of small ear rings and also eliminated small metal trash from continuing to fall out of the scoop and get it out of the water. I do have the water handle and have had it since 2013, but don't get in the water enough to wear it out.

    I have the 990 and the 920 and a travel handle. Absolutely love them.



    I am 61 and they are very light and manageable.

    I've been carrying my Stealth 920iX sand scoop for a year and on 4th handle (2 wood, 1 pvc broke). WARNING; It has the potential to do serious damage if you hit someone with it while swinging it at the beach. Just be careful. A few beaches I hunt I don't take the Stealth because it is too big at 13" x 9", particularly if the sand isn't deep...but nothing is better in the water or surf for fast target recovery.
