Editors note: I prefer the solid aluminum because it strong and light. Where I hunt is lake beaches with clay and rocky shores, creeks and rivers. On the ocean beaches I prefer the strong wire basket type bottoms because they empty faster and speed up your hunt.

Editor’s note: Yes you can use just about any shovel when metal detecting in moist sandy soil. But digging in rocky soil or in the middle of a dry spell just any shovel won’t cut it. Oh, yeah in the woods full of roots you will need a stainless steel shovel with a cutting edge.
