And, by the way, my 7 year old son Juanito found a nickel yesterday when he took his detector out for the first time! After viewing product detail pages, look here to find an easy way to navigate back to pages you are interested in.
YouTube features everything from reviews to testing to actual hunting scenarios, and everything in between. There is nothing like seeing them and hearing the owners talk about them to give us a great idea what the machine is like and how it works.
Salt from the ocean water and surf spray can also cause problems with components. However, venturing onto the wet sand or into salt water is another kettle of fish.
Always fill the search hole cleanly and remove any mess before moving on, but before you carry on your merry way, take a really slow and close sweep of the surrounding area. If you’re relic hunting, take a note of the exact place because a historical record is helpful to archaeologists should that relic prove interesting or unusual. When that glorious ‘beep’ calls out, it’s time to pinpoint exactly where the signal is coming from. Sweep the machine side to side in front of your feet. It takes practice to understand readouts and how to choose the most effective soil settings.
You can also use the same machine for all of your hunting as opposed to the PI where you should only really use it for beach hunting. The benefit to using a multi-frequency detector in salt water is that you can discriminate out unwanted targets.
Be the first to know about promotions, special offers and product releases. Smaller coils tend to make the detector more sensitive to smaller, trinket-sized objects by concentrating a signal on a narrow area. From novices to those experienced at the hunt, find metaldetectorshub from leading brands, including Bounty Hunter®, Fisher Labs® and Teknetics®.
If no, then you’re probably going to want to start with an entry-level machine. This buying guide will go into detail on the best metal detectors and explain what to look for when choosing. Your Youtube homepage is littered with ‘Recently Watched’ videos of every type of detector review and unboxing. You’ve searched high and low on all the detecting forums, and read countless opinions, reviews and case studies – most of them likely biased.
If you have elbow or shoulder problems or another ailment that limits physical activity, it’s recommended to get a lighter detector. Some metal detectors are light as a feather while others are built like bricks and can be quite heavy. For those who like the best of both worlds, that may be a detector worth looking into. Alternatively, if you’re looking to cover large, open areas like beaches and farm fields, a larger coil might be a better option. The only real advantage it has over the DD (in my opinion) is that it can be easier to pinpoint your target.
