Nice for the priceFishguy in pittsburgh, PA USA -
I love this detector, a little intimidating for the novice user and won't get very deep unless you set it up correctly. Just turning it on and trying to detect, you may get 2-4 inches but, after having learned about all the settings, I nailed small targets at 10 inches plus. You get a lot of detector for a little money here made by one of the best in the business. Read the manual, then read it a few more times, then get ready to dig.

This machine was a good one for me, the VDI's are accurate, and the machine is light but it felt cheap. And it is not deep, and I couldn't get it to pinpoint.
