    Default Who makes the best scoop coater?

    About to order a scoop coater and wanted to get the right one. I've used one from Victory Factory and both of the edges felt a bit to rounded, would like one edge to be a little sharper.
    Thanks

    it should have two edges on it, one site rounded and one side sharper.

    sefar makes one like that but i kinda think there really aren't all that many manufacturers of them and companies just rebrand them.

    happens no matter what. just take a piece of chipboard/cardboard and scrap it smooth after you're done coating.


    a wingtipped scoopcoater, that'd be awesome.

    thats what i'm talkin about there. I remember seeing some video on youtube about this dude that had a home made or modified scoop coater that had wings to prevent the side bead.

    Yes, for some reason the way some scoops are cut, the extruded aluminum, they have a big gap where they meet the snap on plastic ends.

    I know what you're going to say but AWT-GPI makes a good scoop.
