This wiki has been updated 18 times since it was first published in October of 2018. If you spend any time treasure hunting or metal detecting at the beach, you will need one of these sand scoops. They make locating your target so much faster and easier than doing it with your hands that you'll wonder how you ever lived without one. Choosing the right model for you depends on whether you plan to hunt in the water and how much bending you're willing to do. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

He now lives and works in the inter-mountain West where he creates technical and marketing content, including white papers, solution briefs, and courseware for some of the world’s largest information technology companies. With more than 14 years of experience in the field, he has learned more than he ever thought he would know about such enterprise IT topics as cloud computing, storage, databases, business software, and networking. When he’s not writing about business computing, he can be found outdoors, probably hiking with his family and dog.
