    Casper; Absolutely love reading your articles and the most recent on scoops (above) is one of your best. Recommend everybody check-out this one and his many other articles on metal detecting and what he has found in the past - gobs and gobs of gold and silver. What MD dreams are made of...

    EVROEXCAVATOR-2 V.33 sharp nose and 1/2 "hole, universal.

    Using one of those seem to work just about anywhere.

    Stavr Moonstrik 6 is my go to scoop, and have a 720i as a backup.
    Treasure is where you find it, trash is where they left it.

    I just received my 920ix with carbon handle & D-shaped lift assist. This is my first beach scoop. Where the best position on the handle to place the lift assist?

    That's kind of a personal choice. I've seen them all over the place and I've tried many different locations before deciding on my favorite. I mount mine on the back side, about half way between the basket and the end of the handle.

    Ok, so it's something I'm going to have to play around with. Why do you have it on the back side? I just placed the D-lift on my handle to get the feel of that, and it seems it works better if it is on the front side. I'm sure you had a good reason. Also, Sunspot threw in a straight bar lift for free, so I'm thinking of placing that right above scoop - to give me something sturdy to hold onto as I'm picking the finds out the scoop.

    May I add that I too am looking at long handled scoops - but one problem I am having is a size restriction. Both Oregon and Washington state parks state no scoop larger than a 6" x 8" with 1/2" holes min. So check rules in your hunting area before you buy!

    PS I don't know if once you are in the ocean, you are past the park boundry. I'll call around and update this post.

    HH all!

    That's interesting. I wonder what's the reason for that kind of restriction and what caused it. Inquiring minds want to know!

    I usually grid an area and find it easier to drag the scoop with the handle on the back side to leave grid marks. I also find it easier to "steam shovel" sand with the handle that way. Like I said, it's a personal preference thing. Try a few different locations and use what feels best to you.

    That makes sense. It would be easier to drag the shovel if the handle is on the back side. I have the plastic D handle, and I discovered if it is not cranked down tight all the way, the handle can swivel around, to be used on the front or back side as needed.

    I find these metal 32" long,6"wide blade shovels work faster/easier than Any sand scoop. And a lot cheaperClick image for larger version.
