Jamaica is the origin of reggae sound systems, so suprising they don't use scoops anymore.

May be due to Dancehall being more popular than heavy dub.

Whatever the reason, would be more interested in the reasons for the shift, as opposed to what everyone uses.

Or because they use the scoops for something else now:

Man as a jamaican stick to your scoop i think its the T-18s they using in jamaica now and i heard most people say they dont work very well. If the scoop play best the dont change it dont watch what what every one else is using. most of the jamaican sounds just follow what other sounds use trust me if STONE LOVE change back to scoop tomorrow then everuyone will change back aswell
