This is good news for member's needing a quality 316 SS Scoop , but bad news for someone who needs a scoop RIGHT NOW ! HAPPY HUNTING , Earl
Thanks for the info! Just ordered a Honey Badger yesterday. Think it will be here in a week?

Wow! My T Rex was strong! You must've had a defective one!

Needed a bigger scoop to keep from wrecking so many ray bans. Plus that 6" Stealth doesn't work good in our sanded in conditions. And i don't personally like Titanium scoops. With Titanium you never really know what type Titanium it's made from. Some of it is mixed with aluminum so the wear would be worse than 316 stainless IMO.
