Sven in Ontario, Canada - best
This unit has been around for a long time, patterned after the Fisher 1280x, just in a compact form. Brilliant concept of putting the electronics and batteries in the headset. Makes for an easy to swing and low drag in the water metal detector.
Waterproof to 6 feet, just keep the headset on your head. I don't think you really want to test its waterproof ability. If you are hunting on land, the Wader is a great all weather machine - no need to cover anything up when it starts raining. Its waterproof design could save the day at a competition hunt...
I have owned a Wader since 2005 and it's only been to the factory once for tuning. Now, I make sure that the headset don't fall off my head. Something to be conscious about, if they fall off and hit the ground. It could result in damage. Even if you manage to catch it before it falls to the ground, it could still sustain damage. How? Most treasure hunter by instinct will grab the headphone cord. The sudden jolt on the cord could possibly yank the crossover wire causing them to break.
I have used the Wader in the water, school grounds, soccer fields, woods. A nice all around detector. You can't go wrong buying a Wader.
