As I'm new to detecting I have bought my detectors first and at the moment learning the difference between rubbish and a find. Have done tools on the cheap and a week or so ago broke the handle on my Bunnings spade. Bit the bullet and bought an Aussie made prospecting shovel from ROE in Sydney. Even with postage(super fast) it was cheaper than some of the better known name ones. It is a beast, so here is a photo of it.ROE Shovel Img_0110ROE Shovel Img_0111

It is similar to one I got 30 years age. It never failed, however I found it unsuitable for gold prospecting in the ground I do, as pick is better and found that the steel shovel had to be placed up high to avoid picking it up with top of the line ML gold detectors.
For coin detecting it can't be beaten and keeps the size of the plug small with good pinpointing with the coil.

Q33
it looks great for grass and sand but sadly you'll spend a month of Sundays digging out a target that's in hard pipe clay.

Looks like a cheap knockoff of a Grave Digger Tools "Tombstone" shovel GraveDiggerTools.com
