I have been collecting the £1 coins for the R Type purchase and then found I had to pay via PayPal!

The R Type scoop arrived yesterday whilst I was out. It was left with my neighbour. Having been disappointed by couriers leaving things on door steps recently I was pleased that this courier handed it to a neighbour for safe keeping ::g .

Well packaged and looks great! Surprised how light it feels. Probably the weight of my wife's supply of shampoo and hair conditioner she takes on holiday so I see no argument when we next go on holiday.

I already have a sand scoop but this one is so I can experiment with some thick walled carbon shafts I have acquired which are really light but seem super strong. The thing I look forward to most is not getting broken shafts stuck down the tube attachment that you find on most other sand scoops.

I will add some photos eventually but some feedback for now;

When I saw the photo of this scoop I wanted one as I could see a massive advantage in the way the handle is attached. No more broken shaft ends stuck in a tube! It was also clear that it would accommodate all sizes of handle so gave me something to play with as I have some thick walled carbon tubes to play with.

The tube I have started with is a fraction thinner than standard broom handle. The U bolts supplied did not have a long enough thread to tighten down on to the tube without the plastic tube supplied but I found some with a longer thread (no stainless, so when I know exactly what is required I may message you) which worked well. It is super light weight!

I tested tonight during the lightening storm. Really pleased with the strength of the carbon tube and the scoop works really well. The scoop is a bit narrower than I am used to having a monster sized scoop already but it was wide enough without having to use pinpoint mode.

I have yet to hit the rocky ground but have no concern re. The scoop. I am interested to see if the carbon tube is up to it. It's a top quality scoop and friends with an engineering background have all commented on its build quality. Also when I have asked "how much £" it is clear this is good value.
