I have tried several metal detectors over a few years, my boy loves to go down to the beach and look for treasure, as he calls it. I decided to buy him another detector for Christmas. Forget about all the others this is far better, better build, better detection, and so simple to use. I would recommend anyone to spend the extra money and buy one of these garrets. You may find yourself getting hooked on the pastime and if you don't you'll probably get your money back as they really hold their price second hand. David Goodall.
