    New scoop Help

    Need some suggestions. Been freshwater beach hunting for about 6 months now and have been quite successful so far. The one thing that I seem to have issues with is getting the target into the scoop. I use all the tricks like a foot behind the coil for scoop placement. I have a smaller scoopal/pol? that's 6"wide x 4.5"tall x 10" deep. I find that sometimes I hit the target first scoop and other times up to 15 scoops and I usually just give up. Should I get a bigger scoop? A lot of beaches I hunt have 10 inches of sand with a hard clay base. It feels like I miss the target bypassing it with the V of the tip of the scoop? Any help or suggestions for an upgrade of scoop would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    THANKS Casper great article. There are a lot of new models out there, any specific models that you would suggest for the type of sand clay hunting that I do?

    I ordered it right after I retired - about 6 years now. Went with a post hole digger handle - floats upright in the water.

    Yes! I made that mistake and got a 5 1/2 inch wide scoop and it sucked to be blunt. I now have an 8-inch wide one and it's great!

    I agree. Get the Stealth 920 IX. I lost more targets with my old 6 inch round scoop. I bought a 920 IX and drastically reduced my recovery times.

    It's just a pole made of hickory - strong, and long lasting. I think it cost about $10. The scoop is heavy, but with the wooden pole - the pole floats upright in the deeper water. It is heavy to carry around, but as you get deeper in the water, that pole stands up and looks at you - even at chin deep in the water.

    I'm over 70, so I think that will last me the rest of my life.

    I have the 720I and like it however after using it a few years wish I bought the 920I especially when you go for a shot between waves and miss the target by an inch and next try..... it's gone. The 920 would have hit it. Of course the 920 loaded is gonna be heavier to lift.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    These past few Summers I've been hitting local state parks.

    Some of these beaches have "drive by's" of motor boats proud of their power sending waves to us folks in the water.

    I grab onto that Stealth and hold on - only gotten totally wet a few of the many times. Didn't lose my loved Excal or the scoop.

    The scoop was mightier than their torque
