    I don't want to be a Debbie Downer, but me thinks that is going to fold in the wet sand.

    It will work as dry sand scoop, will never last as wet sand scoop.

    Something to remember, you can buy good wet sand scoop for $200 and sell it 5 years later for $175.00 all day long.

    Wet sand takes a really strong scoop.

    Your right, when I first started I was told to buy a good scoop or it would break. I paid $100 thinking it had to be good, after all it cost $100. I broke it in less than a month digging in wet sand, after that I bought good wet sand scoops and over the years have resold them as I upgraded. Never sold them for less than 80% or more of what I paid.

    Yup, it will not hold up to any degree of wet sand use. The first time you hit a rock and it's all over.

    I completely get it. I made my own also.

    If you have any boat junk yards around, go visit one. I got all the stainless steel pieces and welded them together. It may not look pretty but it works for what I need.

    Nothing beats a good scoop, that I agree with. But for me, nothing beats something I made myself.

    Learn from this one and you'll make the next one better.
