Hi everyone.. i have been planning to buy a metal detector. I am curious to know what you use and how you find their usability and features. What kind
of rank would you give to your detector from 1 to 10 ( being best ) in next categories.
Everybody will tell you to buy a good model. As in stay away from cheap Chinese brands and buy a reputable MD brand.
That's great advice for so many reasons, all resulting in more finds. Ten fold maybe more.
But if you can afford to buy twice buy cheap then good. Why? Because so many I know have become excited over the idea of finding treasure, coins,
rings etc. They soon stop using their $500 detectors after their 200th ring pull. It takes patience and you must persevere.
Buy a second hand $50 model, see if you dig it (pun intended) then go better.

Well there is no second hand models available in here which would satisfy my "needs". I browsed and what i found were very old models and models which
needed a fixing to work if they work. I was adviced to stay away from cheap models ( i wouldn´t buy chinese anyway lol ) rather in price range
300-500 and if i get very much hooked then more expencive one.
I am not afraid of digging i am not a city girl lol. What is my first plan is to search areas that my ancestors used live in land we own so to me
the whole thing has a bigger meaning.. who knows what there could be found.
Hubby and kid is intrested too so i believe device would be in good use.
Thank you and14263

Mine is a Whites spectrum. It cost me a bit over $900 about 12 years ago. It has a digital readout, and tells you what is buried, and how deep. In
example, it says " nickel, quarter, penny, bottlecap, pull tab,50 cent piece, ring, gold silver etc. It works great. I have found many coins and rings
I´ve heard of Bounty Hunter and some folks are dissapointed with batteries. How long does those batteries allow you to scan before they are out of
juice ? I wish they could make a display which shows actual shape of the item like 3d wireframe render sort of.. that would be cool ( maybe some day
