Stealth 920iX X-treme sand scoop review

A few years ago I got into water hunting a little after the weather warmed up and I could no longer relic hunt in the fields and woods. I purchased an aluminum scoop for around a hundred dollars and it seemed to work ok in the dry sand where I was mostly hunting. Present day, I have a Tesoro tiger shark and Sand shark on loan to me from Tesoro. Excited to get out and hit some of the swimming holes at the local lakes, I grabbed my scoop and both machines and headed out. I found myself quickly disappointed!…

George & Pam Lesche – Predator Tools

 During the show last night Bob made a great comment (yeah I know it’s rare) and it went something like this “Everyone keep trying to copy Predator tools, George and Pam already build the best digging tools available so instead of copying predator tools go out and try to improve on something that needs improving” he then went into a rant about a two tone pin pointer like he has so many times before!

Dave Wise and Todd Hiltz

Monday night’s show started off with a bang like so many lately have. Almost every show as soon as we go live I’ve been losing a guest which is not fun when I’m trying to get the show started and introductions while in the background frantically trying to get out guest back on! Well this week was a little twist! As soon as we went live I had a number calling in. I figured I dropped one of the guys so I answer it and I have Tony Mantia on the line before I even start my introductions which then…
