Default having a good scoop for the water is great

saves much time and trouble

for me anyway..............in the years before i had to wiretire wire inside my other scoops, but not since i got one of these last year.

i have been saving these 1 week today...............life is easier now..........2 gold and others are Nitros

good luck

I saw them before....so Max tell us your unbiased report so far on the bottom handle (I like to call it the neck) we trust your opinion....where have you used it on wetsand,water,rocks etc....how it's holding up so far...the handle.

Max, what are the dimensions on the smaller one? Their site doesn't give much in the way of detail and they don't even list the smaller of the two. Also, what size is the SS mesh/holes. Why did you sell the larger one to Sarge? Just too big? Sorry for all the questions.

Do you know if the handle is just a standard post hole digger handle? That would be a plus since they are readily available at any decent hardware store!

I have the similar one with smaller round hole. I have been wondering how many of those good targets that fall through my scoops holes were earrings like those...

Great finds and pics!
