No Depth

Bill in Michigan - two stars
Good detector for contests and speed hunts, but if you are seeking old deep stuff, don't bother with the Golden Umax. You'd think that after all these years the detector was on the market, they'd give it a boost in power. Till they fix it... buy a different machine.

Awesome Coin Getter!

Brandon Moore in Newry ME - good
This is a great machine for the parks and old houses. Why I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the lack of depth: it's good for about 6" to 7" max. But what is awsome about this machine is the tones: there are about 4 and to my ears they work great. I usually run my detector on Discrimination set at below Iron level to listen to everything the machine is telling me, and once you get that midhigh to high tone, it's almost a coin every time guaranteed. The low tones are iron, and usually a rolling tone will be like a bolt, or sometimes foil, or bottle cap, but it's a solid signal that counts - then you dig!
