The Handle tube is angled at about 20 degrees so digging is easier than with a straight up and down handle. This also makes the scoop more balanced and feel lighter when hunting out of water. The 3/8 holes are punched close together to allow for quick sand release and catch those smaller targets that can be missed by larger 1/2 or 5/8 holes.
There is no push plate on the back of the scoop for more control and better balance when pushing down into the sand. The gauge of the stainless steel is.

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. 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. Steve D (aka BCNJ), Toms River, NJ. 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!! 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. Mike L, Cape May Courthouse, NJ. Must use a fiberglass or wooden handle only. Place handle into scoop with wood grain running from front to back of scoop, this allows for maximum support. Drill pilot hole into handle and insert screw, this secures the handle to the steel collar of the scoop. You have nothing to lose! 3901 Bestech Road #100 Ypsilanti, MI 48197.
