WHAT TYPE OF SCOOPS ARE AVAILABLE?
There are three different types of materials used for metal detecting sand scoops. The cheapest one is plastic. Then you have your metal and stainless steel. When it comes to sizes and length you will find the small hand scoop, then you have the scoop with a handle, and then there’s the long-handle sand scoop.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I SPEND ON A SAND SCOOP?
When it comes to price, we always suggest knowing your budget. The more you spend the better quality and durability the product will be. The plastic scoops can start around $15 dollars and the top sand scoop can cost up to $150 or more.
ARE SCOOPS USED TO FIND ARTIFACTS AND TREASURES?
The answer is yes. You can use a sand scoop to recover coins, relics, artifacts and much more. Sand scoops were designed to help with digging and recovering items from the sand. If a detectorist was in the dirt hunting for items, they would use a digger or shovel. If you’re in the sand, you need a sand scoop.
ARE SOME SCOOPS BETTER THAN OTHERS?
With some scoops it’s a preference but when it comes to lasting and durability, the metal and stainless-steel scoops are much better. If you are new to metal detecting, you may want to invest into a plastic scoop because the cost is much cheaper. The long-handle scoop is considered a great tool to have but you will spend much more.
HOW DO I KNOW WHICH SCOOP IS BETTER FOR ME?
You need to consider your budget but it’s also a good idea to consider comfort and longevity.
