Its about 4 pounds... its not a scoop I would use in the water... you are better off buying a scoop made for water hunting. that basket will not last...

Well the big 7-8" aluminum 2-piece travel scoop weighs 4oz more than a stainless Stealth 720 with a wood handle. ....and 7 oz more than a 730 with a carbon fiber.


I'd imagine the stainless RTG is about 8-10 oz more.than a stealth.

Thank you, I had one like it for dry sand. It was a scoops unlimited.
My Trex is good for water but heavy.

I'm using a 720I Hybrid with the CF handle... I can hold it with a finger behind basket if I so chose to do and that finger would not hurt at the end of the hunt..


You want a strong, lightweight scoop? Its right here...
