This scoop works well in soft sand, but wouldn’t do well in hard earth. The metal cage is a bit flimsy and bends easily. However for the price point I think this item is good. If I had to do it over again I would have bought a more substantial scoop. The scoops length work well on the beach and in water less than 3 feet deep. In deeper water you need a scoop with a longer handle.
