Review by All Terrain Metal detecting youtube on December 5, 2020I own both sizes. I LOVE the durability, and simplicity! I bought the larger one first, and it was a bit heavy (I'm a larger guy). So after a year or so, I bought the smaller one, and loved it more! Was easier to dig with due to its smaller footprint, and was much easier to drag around all day. Both are great scoops, but the 8 inch is MUCH more practical imho! Check out this scoop in use on my metal detecting channel! "All terrain metal detecting" on youtube! :)
Review by Jack on October 30, 2016I am new to metal detecting, and this was my first scoop purchase. I had been using a small shovel on the beach, which wasn’t working out very well. With this scoop, you can dig in dry or wet sand easily. The back is reinforced, so you can use your foot to drive the scoop into the sand without worrying about bending it.
The holes are a little small if you’re digging in combination wet/dry beach sand. The wet sand hangs up in the holes, so it takes some shaking to clear it out and get to your target.
The T Rex is a little heavy to drag up and down dry beach sand, especially if you use a wooden handle with it. The scoop itself is pretty heavy, and adding a standard wooden shovel handle to it makes it a combination sand scoop / arm workout device. A fiberglass or carbon fiber handle would make the overall weight a lot less, but might take away some ability to pry out stubborn sand or rocks.
The T Rex is very well made. All of the welds are nice and neat, and look very strong. I don’t hesitate to force this scoop into very dense sand that is sometimes rocky. I know it will handle any punishment I give it.
The T Rex is made of stainless steel, so cleanup is easy. I just hose it off when I’m done, and let it dry. And I don’t worry about putting it away a little damp. There is no rust on it, and I have used it on the last six beach hunts.
I do like the T Rex scoop very much, and use it every time I go out. I’m thinking about getting a smaller sand scoop for the dry sand, and keeping the T Rex for when I get a better detector that I can use in the water.
