With hexagonal-shaped holes, the HexScoop has an edge over traditional square-mesh construction. Each hole is laser-cut at 7/16″ – so it’s the perfect size for smaller rings and jewelry that other scoops tend to lose, but offers enough surface area to allow wet sand to fall through with a good shake.
Even though with the thick-wall stainless steel construction and reinforced handles, our large and medium HexScoops are light enough to drag behind you all day. The handheld model is perfect for getting down in the sand. Each scoop is emblazoned with a laser-cut Whites logo – perfect for showing the competition who runs the beach!
The HexScoop is offered in three sizes:
- Large* – 8″ x 4.5″ opening
- Medium* – 6.75″ x 4.5″ opening
- Small – Handheld 3.5″ x 7.75″ opening
*Large and medium scoops ship without a handle. We suggest purchasing a shovel handle from a local hardware store – it will float and give you several seasons of use, even in salt. Handle opening is 1 3/8″.
