I have been using this scoop for 3 months now and it has held up to heavy use just fine.
I have the regular CKG scoop and it is great. I wanted to remove the sand faster so that I can spend less time sifting. Love the scoop thank you!!!
The first issue is the biggest-the ends of the u_bolts sticking out the back are very dangerous. In the water if your foot slips or a wave causes you to stumble those bolts could give you a serious wound. It is on the heavy side but kind of expected.
Overall I think it will be ok-I got some rubber end bolt covers which should help but you do have to be careful
Love it. A must have for the beach.
Alot heavier than I expected.
