Looks good, you guys coming out with one with smaller holes or smaller holes near the front and bottom? That is similar to my RTG wire scoop and the tiny stuff falls through and is tricky when in the water.

This is an interesting product.  I looked on the website and didn't see any instruction booklet or assembly instructions.

Maybe it's so simple that none are needed.

However, I was hoping to read them so I could understand better how the adjustment mechanism works, and how long I could extend the long handle, and whether any longer extension might be available (or possible for the user to rig together).  I'm tall, and "normal" length products often don't fit me.

Also, of course, I'd be happy to offer edits to the instructions if I thought any would be useful.  I've done that for previous Nokta Makro products. (Dilek has quickly incorporated my suggestions, so I guess they were welcome.)  And now that I live near the beach, I could actually do some thorough testing!

Are instructions coming?

This would never hold up to water hunting. Dry sand only would be my guess.

It looks as if a lot of thinking went into the adjustment you have for the angle of the handle. I’ve had one with that size holes before and found it wasn’t for me .

 To see if it would hold up to pushing it with my foot only time would tell.

I suppose if you change it up a bit and had a solid strip on the bottom and just off the sides it would hold up better in some the gravely waters we have in the NE here. I do like the handle system, looks well thought out.

      Want to get a sand scoop for the beach. Search did not come up with a good discussion here.  Looking for suggestions.
      Use 2-3 times a year, salt water, wet and dry use. A travel type scoop would be nice for travel and storage. 
      Not wanting to spend $300 on high end since it won’t see the heavy use in the near term. I like the RTGs but there are so many options!  Length, scoop size, material/weight. The travel scoop with 2 piece handle seems nice but I have read it has a crappy connection with a sheet metal type screw?  Scoopal and the Nokta scoops are tempting but I could see breaking these.

      First proto, I will be testing. 4 1/4" x 10" blade, 40" overall. 2.15 lbs. Integrated foot peg so it doesn't hang up, couple root cutters to reduce side kick.

      Although we own Minelabs-Equinox, GP's & other detectors, more and more often my brother Jim and I are using the Gold Bug 2.  We've discovered that when we find a patch and after the small nuggets are found, tiny pieces still remain.  At the end stage, we can get even more pieces by raking the area.  Jim made me this collapsible rake, from a tiny collapsible four tine rake and a welded-on eight tine piece.  I can carry it in my backpack and it looks like just the tool for those tiny pieces.

      Kept snapping the wood handle I had for my sand scoop so I snagged a snow rake extension that has spring clips and insert for around $15. Now I can take the handle off so it fits in my car easier and should hold up well. It seems very sturdy with the ribbed walls. Overall length is cut to 48" including the scoop.

      There is also a unit sold by Air Buddy.
      25 years ago I built my own hookah unit , using a 5hp gas motor,  Thomas diaphragm compressor,  wash tub, and all set in a big innertube. 
      The dive blu3 unit only weighs 10 lbs. which is doable for me, as I approach retirement. Would love to dunk the Simplex in the shallows,
      looking for fresh drops.   Our lakes here are all rock bottoms.  If you have used these electrics, I'd love to hear your comments. 
      While Im considering it, one of those propulsion units would be fun too!
      The only difference between the men and the boys, is the price of their toys! 😁
