VK40 Real Value for Money

Hoard Hunter in Surrey , england - best

This is a great unit for the cost, much under-rated in my opinion. It outshines the rest in the £200 price bracket including the over hyped Garrett 250 and the fisher F2. Both of which I have used on occasion, I'm glad I chose this over them. I bought this as a backup to my Minelab and have found myself using it a lot. Don't get me wrong, it is not better but cheap enough to leave in your car without losing sleep. On the occasions where I have used them side by side with my nephew, this machine has managed to detect anything that the Minelab did. Simple setup, not over fussy, great depth, beach mode falters a bit on wet sand but it doesn't pretend to be a P.I detector. I think a lot of outlets are giving advice based on profit margin rather than performance. This is an overlooked gem. I also love the C-Scope 990XD, another under-rated brand, that have lost momentum in recent years.
