The SITO scoop is often regarded as being the best scoop on the market. Created by a group of three enthusiasts, it makes a difference when a product has been created by people fully aware of what they would want a scoop to be like. This is not a normal kind of trowel but rather is one of the best metal detecting accessories itself.
Best-Selling SITO Scoops
Sito Scoops 8" Standard Sand Scoop with Sharp Front (V1)Heavy seems to be the reoccuring theme with this scoop. I've had it almost 2 years, It is very heavy, it fact some days I take my wife's CKG scoop as it ways about half but it still looks like the day I bought (Oct 2020). No rust or anything else. I just purchased an Anderson Neptune 45" x 1 1/2" carbon fiber handle to replace my wood handle hoping it would be lighter (wrong, 3 oz heavier). Oh well, at least it will float better now. I give it 4 1/2 starson August 25, 2022
Sito Scoops 8" Standard Sand Scoop with Sharp Front (V2)First and foremost I love the scoop... I have a lot of first scoop success with my shallow targets making target recovery faster. I love the smaller holes in the scoop... I have recovered several diamond stud earrings now that would have fallen through the holes on my other scoop. I only gave four stars because when I went to insert my two piece Neptune Anderson travel shaft into the scoop housing it would not seat. The welding on the inside of the slot for the handle was rough and unfinished. I had to put the scoop in a vise and use a round file to de-burr the inside of the shaft housing. Let's just say it was not a quick fix. After filing away the burrs and areas that were deformed from the heat of the welding the shaft seated to the bottom. I also recommend drilling a hole all the way through both sides of the scoop ( horizontal, left to right look at the scoop) housing and through bolting the shaft to the scoop instead of using the single set screw that comes with the scoop (use the bolt that comes with the Anderson travel shaft). Like I said I love the functionality of the scoop just for the money you would think the manufacturer would do a better job finishing the area the shaft has to seat into... my Anderson scoop handle is an easy 5 stars!on December 9, 2021
Sito Scoops 8" Standard Sand Scoop with Sharp Front (V1)I purchased this wanting a bigger scoop, with everything out of stock, I picked this scoop and with the carbon fiber handle is still out of stock, I purchased a four foot wooden handle from Home Depot. This thing is practically indestructible to say the least, but total weight is just a little over 5.5 lbs (with handle). As another reviewer said, don't plan to carry it very far, especially if you have been digging in wet sand.on June 22, 2021
Sito Scoops 8" Standard Sand Scoop with Sharp Front (V1)This scoop is very heavy and heavy-duty. It's built like a tank and about as easy to carry. Adding the (recommended) wooden shovel handle just adds to the weight. Just don't plan to carry this very far.on December 15, 2020
