    I can "steam shovel" a hole better that way, and when just scooping a hole in the wet sand, I don't have to reach down and lift a heavy slug. I can just rock the scoop and drag it back. I also find it easier to drag the scoop when making grid lines.

    One of the main reasons I went to an aftermarket handle of this type, is that I have a bit of arthritis in my hands, and I find it much easier to grab a D handle than to constantly grasp a round slippery wood or carbon fiber handle. It's especially helpful when dragging the scoop or carrying it over my shoulder. I can just hook my fingers through the handle hole without having to actually grip it tightly.

    I don't think it is the saltwater, probably fine sand gets in and wedges itself.

    My scoop is about 10 years old and not the lightest thing around but I don't carry it very much. I drag it behind me. Less strain on my back and i can look back and see where i have been. Reminds me of a drunk sailor

    It is good to have when a dog threatens to attack. Make a good and sharp baseball bat.
    When I did yard sales I was dollardan. No yard sales where I am now.

    The saltwater corrosion welds it together.
