    Fantastic detector for the price.
    I am new to detecting but I researched many, many other detectors and had the chance to try a few. You definitely get your money's worth with this one. Did the same with pen-pointers. I highly recommend the Garrett pro pointer. It is $110.00 plus shipping @ Cabelas. The perfect set in my opinion. Dig safe and stay legal. Best of luck. -THE BOSS-

    Pretty good
    I have had this for about a year and have used it enough for a thorough review. It works well, I just got back from the Texas coast. I didn't find anything valuable but I think it's my skill, I am a noob. It will find any buried soda can or coin very easily. The only down side is that you have to keep adjusting the volume. Extremely loud

    love it! Simple but works well
    I bought this for my husband as a christmas present and he loves it. He found a 1930's tax coin at our house within 5 minuts of using it.

    Didn't work for what I wanted it for.
    I bought this model today because I lost my one diamond earring and I took the other earring to see how it would detect and you have to get right up on it with it set for deep finds for it to give a tone. Sometimes it want even detect the earring. I had no luck. Will try agina tomorrow. But it does beep all over the yard. I can't believe there's that much stuff buried in the yard. Well it didn't work for what I wanted it for.

    Good beginner detector
    Bought the detector today and would defiantly advise to get headphones and a pin pointer, but over all nice to start with.

    Swarm metal detector
    Some what cheap for a detector, although it works great for most finds it has only one issue. Weight.  Heavy and hard to lug around.

    Good Metal Detector for a Good Price
    My father received this metal detector for Christmas but I use it also. Be sure to READ the instruction manual! You may miss other metals if you have it on the wrong mode. I recommend setting the sensitivity high, discrimination low, and keeping the switch in the middle (on All Metal Mode) to find as much hidden metal as possible. The right switch (Tonal Discrimination) works extremely well. The detector made a low beep after sweeping it over a gold ring and a high beep over a silver ring! I ... read more haven't used the left switch but I believe it auto discriminates. Great value for such a great metal detector. It can find very small pieces of metal in the ground that I thought it couldn't detect. It's also very comfortable to hold and barely weighs anything.

Different Coils For Different Tasks

Spending the afternoon using metal detectors to search the beach or the park for lost coins and jewelry can be a fun, and sometimes lucrative, hobby, but examining the coils can help you make sure you have the best metal detector for the job. Small coils, often found on kids' metal detectors, are 6" or less, and are well-suited for finding small fragments of metal or natural gold flecks. Medium coils, 7" to 9", are considered general-purpose coils that are good for a wide range of activities, and large coils, 9" and higher, are usually used for finding big objects.

Discriminate Against False Positives

Digging up bottle caps and screws all day can be frustrating. To help eliminate this problem, try using a metal detector with a discrimination feature that eliminates positive results from iron or ferrous objects. These detectors can also usually emit different audible tones, depending on the type of metal that's being detected. This lets you save time by only digging for items that you think are valuable.

Bring the Right Accessories

Using the right accessories can make your metal-detecting afternoon more fun and productive. Using headphones can make tones from your detector clearer and easier to hear, so you know when something is nearby. Keeping a fresh set of batteries on hand can help you avoid frustration, and a pinpointer can help you quickly narrow down possible locations for buried items. Try splitting up to cover more ground and talking on your two-way radios.
