Here's my 2 spades.  Now a spare, kept in the boot, the Draper Mini and it's big Brother the Wilko stainless and customised border spade,

Border spade 13,  nice swivel soft plastic handle 3.50,  Johns labour priceless   Roll Eyes

why do you prefer the wilko is it because its longer and is there much weight difference ?

Can't see the weight difference being much of an issue to you  Grin

Tell you what I find useful.  John gave me one of those hook thingies off his workbelt that he never used. It clips on your belt and I hook the spade on it when I have a ciggie.

Good idea !!! I don't smoke but when finds are few and far between it would save swinging it round and free my hand up for slippery slopes  Cheesy

i am new as well to detecting but a friend took me out on thursday and he laughed at the spade i brought with me. it was the only one i had. great for mixing concrete but far to wide for detecting so he lent me his spare spade and it was down to B&Q today to buy one like he lent me. .
Also discovered i need to bring waterproofs with me because we were detecting in between showers on thursday in howling winds but at least i found 2 old pennies which made my day as well as rubbish.

MAD COWS EAT METAL DETECTORISTS !!!🐂🐂🐂🐂🐂🐂

Well done David, we all have to learn (as I still am)as to what to wear,what to wear for footwear, how many layers to wear! What detector, what type of headphones! What coil ! what pointer !and yes,what spade! I don't think that anyone when they start off in this fascinating hobby, realises what is entailed.
But the main thing is,get out there,get detecting,and even more important enjoy it,and remember, this the Detecting Wales forum is a BRILLIANT platform to gleam virtually all the information you need,all you have to do is ask,and someone will be able to offer good metal detecting advise.
Good Hunting 👍
