Hello,
What would be a good scoop for packed gravel sand and rock? The rock is up to about 1 1/2 " maybe 2" in size but it is mostly packed sand and gravel to 1 1/4". Thanks for your tips in advance.

Best Regards,
Steve

Steve I have the Nuttall Diamond Head. I got it specifically for the kind of bottom you describe. However, if the rocks are too big and are packed together I have determined I have to dive it and physically move the rocks away till I get to the finer material and then I fan where the signal is. I suppose you could do it with a scoop but if there are lots of big rocks and the water visibility is poor, it's gonna be tough. Maybe somebody else has a solution. That's the best I can do for you.

Thanks Jim, there are only a few rocks sprinkled around. It is the gravel that is fairly hard to break into. That Nuttall looks good, the point should break into the gravel pretty decently.

Thanks,
Steve
