Ohiodirtfisher in Cleveland Ohio - best

I just brought one back to life, carbon lower shaft, battery pack, a few other missing pieces. I went in my back yard where I have used all of my other detectors, and found three memorials and a nickel that were out of reach for the coin shooters.
Say what you will but I am not a name brand detectorist, just like to find what works and the goodies left behind by the big buck Bells and Whistles guys. And I have less than a hundred bucks into this unit. So if I have to dig up a few more targets that's fine, I am into the hobby. And if you don't want to dig, just walk parking lots for dropped change.

Rick in Sequim,WA USA - best

This is more like a locator detector. With that in mind, you need to go in barren areas to keep away from trash. I dug a horseshoe at a foot just playng around. I also found a wire the size of a hair at about 3 inches. This is like the detector for any and all metal - from manhole covers to coins and nuggets, with the 9.5 coil it came with. A simple detector for those with time to dig...

Mike is a fool who deserves to have his money taken

Jason in South Carolina - good

This machine is intended for rockshooting (prospecting for gold in the wild). It's an awesome machine for hunting jewelry and nuggets. (You can take your coins and stuff them Mike!) My Sierra Madre has paid off 10 times over since I bought it a year ago.

A Really Bad Detector

Mike in Waterford, CT USA - one star

I could write endless sentences on why this detector is a very bad choice. No need to waste your time or mine. Simply put, this is a very bad detector. Not worth the money. You would do better down on your knees and digging through the dirt by hand looking for coins, etc., than to use this machine. This detector couldn't find a coin or relic if it was lying on the surface under the coil.
