This review is from: Discriminating Metal Detector (Electronics)
Metal detecting is something I have thought about trying quite a few times so I finally thought I would give it a go. As I wasn't sure if it was to be a hobby that I would really get into, I didn't want to spend too much money so I plumped for this machine and it is ideal for a complete novice like me.
I didn't find it a problem at all to assemble it and it is sturdy enough. I have only used it a few times and haven't really found anything of value yet, a penknife on the sand dunes and various pieces of rusty metal. I guess it's the excitement of the beep that goes off when you have discovered something buried that keeps you plugging away, even if it only turns out to be a sweet wrapper!! There is a very handy headphone socket which cuts out the beeping noise and saves on the batteries. The 'Discriminating Metal Detector' is also quite light and easy to use.
I am by no means an expert but to me this is ideal for any beginner or someone that just wants to have the odd detecting search.
