Chuck,
You are going to love that 720i. I have 4 scoops and since I got the 720i I have even thought of using the rest. My wife does but not me. Digs deep when you need to and cuts through shell no problem. I carry mine on my shoulder because the 3030 picks it up easily. You may want to try a 2 foot piece of swimming noodle and slide it down to the top of the scoop. Makes it nice when you it's on your shoulder and makes it easy to see when it's under water and it floats the handle.

Craig, You need to remove the picture of the scoop in the bed before your wife sees it and thinks she's been replaced! Congrats on a beautiful looking scoop!

Very nice scoop, I seen denny's scoop when the VB crew came in to OC last year..almost the perfect scoop with that carbon fiber! If I did not have my 4 Brand X's I would have one...

And you won't need the "wimp" assist handle either

A few coins and lots of lead for me yesterday... Robert found a small gold signet ring and Mark pulled a couple of old silver rings....

When I hoist my RTG to my shoulder I use one arm and usually use a leg assist (knee) to get it started as its heavier... so I did the same thing with my new scoop forgetting how light it is and it flew out of my hand and landed scoop down in the mud about 10 feet behind me

It worked will in the compacted shells and clay/mud mixture, I did not try it in the rocks though... I'm sure it will function fine there..
