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.
Does exactly what it's supposed to do with no issues Very light weight and well made. It was a gift to my friend and he loves it.
This scoop is a little on the heavy side but this makes it easier for digging.The brackets that attach the handle are very secure and it feels like a well made scoop. It should last a long time.
