Default Handle type preference - shovels.

Hey y'all. I've yet to buy a metal detector shovel. I'm carrying (dragging) long-handled shovels when I go. Typical big/wide garden shovels.

I've seen some of the shovels discussed in recent threads like Root Assassin and Root Slayer, the Lesche and Predator shovels, etc. Some have T-handles, some a big loop, and some small nub.

What's your preference and why?

I like the idea of a T-handle but I can imagine a loop would be handy for gripping at all angles. I think I've seen an accessory that can hold a T-handled shovel to a belt for dragging...

Lesche Sampson 31" with a T handle. I've tried others and when it comes to digging a lot of holes, whether its detecting or bottle digging, the T handle is my favorite by a mile.

A "D" or a "T" handle. More control and easier to dig.
