Viking Cult Machine

Sandgrounder in UK - good

I like the V5 and would tell others to buy one. I believe the new circuits are better too in V5 because they can be replaced, whereas the older ones are harder to access. I have found lots of coins with mine. The robust V5 does seem to have a cult-like following.

Great for the Beach!

Vince in Cleveland United Kingdom - best

I bought this detector because of its simplicity: it automatically cuts out nails and pull tabs.
On the beach, it came into its own. Other detector users were finding nothing with their expensive units, but I came home with a pocket full of coins. After all, isn't that what it's all about?
Don't be put off by the cheap price. You are buying quality. I've had White's Arado, C Scope, Garrett, etc., but I'll keep my Viking V5. Thank you!
