    Note: I do not go in the water--------------just sandy beaches. I want to be able to scoop while standing and then run my detector over it. I see VIDS of guys W/Metal scoops shaking out the sand and really not knowing whether they have anything or not.
    For me a metal scoop would be a time killer.
    I don't really understand. How does a plastic scoop dig through hard sand, shells, etc without snapping into pieces? Also, shaking out the sand can save a huge amount of time. You are saying you run your detector over your scoop and then try to find it by eye/hand? That would take forever. I dig, check, dump. Assuming the target is in the dump I take the small section where it is and shake till the target is there. Takes a few seconds. I don't need to bend over and I can move on. I don't see how it can be done faster than that and I have tried everything over the years.

    not to mention rocks and packed shells on fresh water beaches. I hunt on a large lake in Georgia and it is not always pretty white sugar sand like you find at the Destin, FL area. You need hard stainless steel and a very good handle.
