Seems to be a great tool, but it was taken from me after assembly. My wife says it's my Christmas present. So living in Kansas I won't get to use it until after Christmas when we go to the Texas gulf. I'm excited to try it out!!!!!!!!!!
Scoop and handle look good. Missing a screw and nut. Contacted manufacture never responded.
Haven't been to the beach yet 😕
I tried to do some extensive research before deciding to choose the 11 x 8 inch CKG Sand Scoop. The build quality is very good. Welds were perfect as well. This one came with the Carbon Fiber handle which even made it so much better because it breaks down into 2 pieces for travel and is extremely lightweight. Using it at the beach, it worked flawlessly in both dry sand and wet sand. It does get a little heavy after a hour or so of carrying it, but I simply just pulled it behind me as I walked, so no big issue.
I do had to mention CKG's customer service. When my sand scoop arrived, the nut that the handle screws into was welded slightly off center which prevented me from being able to screw the black handle into the scoop. I contacted their Customer Service via their phone number and they had me to send them pictures of the issue. They IMMEDIATELY sent out a replacement with a return shipping label.
So I cannot say enough great things about CKG overall.
If you are looking for a great, well made Sand Scoop, then look no farther. This set up with the carbon fiber handle is Amazing !!!
Still cold so I haven't had a chance to use it. But solid construction and looks really nice!
