T-Rex 9.5″ Wide Stainless Steel Sand Scoop with 5/8″ Holes for Metal Detecting.
New 5/8″ holes to catch even the smallest coins and items while beach hunting.
“I have hunted with the T-Rex sand scoop through its proto-type period. The end result is, it is the best scoop I own. I am never worried about losing a target at the water’s edge. If the target requires a second scoop the T-Rex dumps easily allowing a second scoop to be taken before the next wave can cave in the hole. In the last year, I have run this scoop through some really tough conditions. The T-Rex takes a big chunk out of wet the sand and most targets are recovered in one scoop.”

“The T-Rex is an awesome scoop. I have had many people use the scoop and they all seem to like it. I have a few friends that have knee and back issues and they think it is a lot easier to use than any of the scoops they have used in the past. They like the flat back part of the scoop which is used to push the scoop into the ground instead of the small pads other scoops are using. This gives the scoop more stability when digging.”

“Well built, lightweight, and strong! Bites hard, large bucket really grabs a load of sand! Drains fast in dry sand and in the surf!! Works great for me in our “wet cement” sand below the tideline!!”
~Brian Mayer (aka Surfidigger)
“My new T-Rex is the scoop I reach for whether I’m hunting the dry sand or in the water. The design makes for fast, wide, deep, and fast filtering of the sand. With the lightweight of the scoop, I could carry this all day.”

Attaching a Handle
- Must use a fiberglass or wooden handle only.
- Purchase a 46″ Ames White Ash Replacement Shovel Handle, sold at any home goods store such as Home Depot.
- Place handle into the scoop with wood grain running from front to back of the scoop, this allows for maximum support.
- Drill a pilot hole into the handle and insert the screw, this secures the handle to the steel collar of the scoop.
