Just in general, How could you not wear gloves when doing any MD at all?

I started to use them in the water only until about 2 years ago after getting a cut on a can I was crushing. Gloves in the dry sand?

I use them all the time anytime I MD. I always looking for different style of gloves to test. Some gloves you can't close your hands easy and others are just too thin.

I wear a thin glove on my scoop hand more for preventing calluses from the sand attaching to the scoop handle. And I always wear booties so I don't lose a toe from the edge or tip of a scoop.

Lightbulb Stavr

Then come up with your own solution to your OLD design , the screw in the Goose Neck need's to go to heaven :digginahol e: PS let me know when it's done, than i will buy another scoop Its such a poor design i drilled all way through , not 1 but two hole's bolted , to secure the head to the handle , a design used on all Cheap built scoop's now, retire , or man up to the high end class . No more screw's please, give us a quick release updated version , it will improve your scoop sale's at least 30%, not asking you to copy anyone's design, your smart enough to come up with your own version , happy hunting Earl

I'm going to the beach in a couple of weeks and will bring both aluminum and SS scoops. It will be interesting to see the difference. The aluminum is definitely lighter, but it certainly won't be as strong.

A Florida hunter said Xtreme scoops in 60 day's or so, will have Titanium scoop's in the line up along with 314 or 316 marine grade , and still has 304 Stainless in stock

If you have an aluminum scoop you can paint it with a silicon embedded marine epoxy that will make it slicker than duck poop on a wet pier.

I think wetlander is a brand name, they paint the hulls of airboats with it. Helps them glide over mud and logs and such.

If you're going to go out once or more a week pay up front for a good quality scoop - a Stealth or Stavr - it'll be worth it over the long run.
Those stavr scoops look like theres not much enclosure near the handle, gold might jump out when shaking!
