Chuck, I just want to thankyou. I ordered my 720 from you last fall
and now that the ice has thawed here in Colorado I was finally able
to take it out for a test drive. It's quite a chore digging here
through all the rock and hard clay at our swimming holes and no
matter what a guy uses there's nothing easy about it. The difference
is your scoop didn't bend, buckle, or even dull down. I kicked that
thing hard like a shovel for about 7 hours and the only thing that
wore down was me. What a beast !! In our ground nothing is going to
take a big bite but your scoop definitely gains more than anything
else I have tried and speeds up recovery time considerably. Great
job on a great product.
Thanks for the great service and product,
the scoop (720i) wednesday and took it out this morning.
great, i have a stavscoop krepish model.
cuts through the sand much easier and does not drop sand off the tip
like my other one.
suggestion i would make is to take the small holes slightly higher
on the back face upto the brace bar.
scoop, look forward to finding lots of gold with it.
I am glad to hear you are happy XXXXX. I wish
I was in Spain detecting like you L
I am a little surprised that you want the holes
higher. It seems to me that if you have a small item falling
through, you would go after it a second time and be a little gentle
with it the second time round.
Small holes cost $$$$ and make the scoop
It is always a battle between cost, weight,
Thanks for your input.
I'd just like to say how impressed I am with the
Sunspot Stealth "720i" scoop. I've used it on four occasions in wet,
dry, and wet mixed with cobblestones ~ nothing can stop it. The
rocky areas of my beach were holding some old silver coins. While
this would challenge the strength of most scoops, the Stealth 720i
cut through the rocks like a bulldozer and the 1 1/2 inch hardwood
handle muscled the heavy loads without any sign of breaking. While
I'd say it's a strong man's scoop, carrying it around for 4 hour
hunts wasn't a problem for me. Great job Sunspot!
This letter was posted in the Findmall
Last week I was notified by Sunspot that they
wanted to reinforce my 720 stealth scoop (bought almost 2 months
ago). with no charge to me other than sending it in and they would
send it back to me with a 3 to 7 day turn around Now that’s great
service !. So I sent it in along with my friends who bought his at
the same time as me.
Decided to hit the beach today with my
old scoop that has a stainless steel tip (no reason to give its name
) that I have been using all along, with no problems before
purchasing the Sunspot Scoop
I came across a target put the
scoop in the dry/wet sand and pushed. I almost broke my ankle the
scoop didn’t budge didn’t even cut into the sand , I stumbled around
like I took hit off a Chinese Bong. Not that I ever did that, but I
can imagine. I wasn’t right the next 2hrs of hunting. I had a hard
time penetrating the sand the rest of the hunt. It wasn’t so
I want my Stealth 720 back Chuck hurry
All I can say there is a very big difference !!!! I’m
totally sold on this scoop now I see why I didn’t come home so worn
My friend is going out tomorrow I can’t wait to hear
from him, boy I’m going to have a good laugh.
this tester guy: Give it hell. I want you to be rough on it so I can
find out if there are any weaknesses.
Hey Chuck got it out
three times. First thing I noticed was the direction line in the
handle very cool. Then noticed the wood grain is running in the
right direction. After assembly I noticed the handles on top of the
scoop which give you about 5" of handle. This is a good thing. While
hunting the angle of the scoop really make it easier to dig
effortlessly. When you’re in neck deep water the extra handle really
helps. When you go to pick out a target from the scoop it much
easier cause there no handle in the scoop, awesome. The design of
the scoop really cuts this hard sand very good. While in zero vis
water you can slide the scoop down over you foot to hit the target
area mush easier. Last thoughts, it the best scoop I've ever used or
for that matter it the best out there, I'm be in some very deep
holes tomorrow. I'll let you know. thanks Chuck…………
Chuck got out this morning low tide really bad sanded in down here,
but managed to dig up a nice 14 k ring and some other goodies. The
scoop really does dig well.I don't know if it the shape or what but
as soon as the tip starts to penetrate the sand it seems to cut in
really well and that's with the hard fine sand we have down here. As
I said in no vis condition the scoop is easy to find your toe or the
tip of your shoe, and almost every time the first or second try you
find the target. The handle has a little flex to it when you go for
a full scoop but the flex is a good thing it's nothing to worry
about, it's very sturdy. Also when dragging the scoop in the water (
not that I do it a lot) there's less drag compared to the Stealth I
guess due to the angle. The angle really saves the knee when digging
you don't have to be so far forward and less bending on the second
scoop. I hope I'm explaining it ok, so far the 720 is 100 percent
more digger friendly then the Stealth not saying the Stealth is a
bad scoop the 720 is well thought out. I'll keep you
Got out today and got another nice 14k lady's gold ring w/
a couple of diamonds. It been pretty tough due to the sand in. The
scoop has been flawless. I really like the easy to view targets in
the scoop nice open area without the handle being in the center were
coin can get stuck. It really gets targets quick when in the water
first or second try. It also seem a little lighter than the other
scoop. I'll keep you posted.
is a hunter who tested the 720 and had to send it on to another
sure that’s fine, not a problem. I missed using
it last night, I am getting ready to close shop early and hope to be
swinging low tide at 4pm. I am hoping my business picks up more so i
can put away enough to buy one, a stealth is what I wanted from
beginning but flphil did not carry them. not to happy with RTG
especially after using the 720. let me know what’s going on
that's great, the 720 is by far the best scoop out there. Got out
this morning over 2 dollars in clad and I thought I had a platinum
ring turn out to be stainless steel. Pretty tough hunting sand in
and a lot of Competition and all the holes are gone. Yeah Chuck I
don't think you could improve on the Performance of the 720 you've
hit a home run on this scoop. Congratulations.
Chuck,,,yes, the 720 is like a digging machine,,,I am truly amazed
at how fast I grab floater targets like pull tabs,,,,,with the RTG
in waist to chest deep,,,,it is a real pain in the butt,,,,either
rolls or pushes the lighter targets,,,,but yes,,,I was in chin deep
water almost all week and the extra length on the handle would be
real nice,,,,it really wouldn't be anymore more to carry around
either,,,,when you are chin deep and put your foot on the basket to
bite the sand,,,,the extra handle would be a big plus,,,,that would
be awesome if you sent me a long handle,,,I showed it to a guy who
has hunted the water here for 25 years and at first,,,he just kind
of shook his head,,,,when I was talking to him,,,we were in chest
deep water and he was chasing a target,,,he asked to try it and one
scoop, she was in the basket,,,he was like,, wow!
Chuck sorry about the emails. Yesterday dug up a nice 14k lady's
ring and today a SS ring. Been hunting in waist to chest high water.
I've noticed its very easy to view your targets in the scoop no
handle to obscure the finds. The extra 4 or 5 " on the handle really
make it easier when in deep water. Plus the direction line is nice
also no more trying to figure out the front to the back of the
scoop. The angle is truly a great thing makes digging so much more
faster and precise. That's it for now. I'll keep you
