    I use a Stavr Scoop - MONSTRIK 9. Designed especially for clay/rocky areas. It has a pointed, solid (no holes) spade-like front for digging in solid ground.

    I think it's more copy and paste of the stealth design with a few changes. Last I heard he was doing the same with the Russian scoop, stavr. I guess that's no different then pouching someones hunting spot or being a Pirate.

    Effort is Important, But knowing where, can make all the difference!

    All scoops have kinda the same design don't they? Only so much you can do to make them look different and still function correctly. You could say the same thing about cell phones or wedding bands.....they look a lot alike, but, that doesn't bother me in the slightest! The more the merrier! Keeps the cost down when you have competition.

    At least try to be honest as to the designer. People are not stupid.

    John designed these himself. He did look at all scoops in the market and took input from dedicated water hunters as to what worked for them and what did not. Every stainless scoop has similarities and differences. Here is one of his design drawings, he took two years in developing his product and it continues to evolve from user feedback.

    Just don't get the 5'' RTG unless you need something light for travel. Its my travel scoop and I have been using it for the last week. Compared to my 9'' stealth scoop its like a toy. I feel like I can't dig with it, especially in the water. And its not the scoop - its the size. The RTG is fine but just way too small...this is also why its great for my travel needs though.

    Poor Stavr. He started it all and has to witness how half the world is copying his design..
