This detector is nothing but the truth!!!
no hunter should be without this detector!!!
If you want a killer coin/deep seeking/precision pin pointing detector this is the one!
One more note: with the 10" coil this detector is as deep as the explorers & sovereigns, don't let the price tag fool you, best secret in metal detecting!!!

It was found where the others have been over time and again. I've been finding wheat backed pennies as well in these iron nail areas here on the farm that the other, more expensive machines have missed.
I give it a rating of 4 out of a possible 5 stars because no detector is perfect.
The Advantage is more than worth the money!

The performance is there to equal or beat most anything out there in the single tone non-ID category. Wanna find the deep stuff in iron? This is one of the best for pulling the deep non-ferrous targets out of iron. Great audio, the fast recovery = great separation in iron/trash and it works very well regardless of sweep speed.
Got an older worked out site that you know must still hold some goodies? Then get an Advantage to find out what's left.

Very easy to use, be sure to adjust the ground balance as this adds a good deal of depth. Also this machine actually
goes deeper in discriminate mode than in all-metal. You can swing it at about any speed you like. It does really love rusty bottle caps though, and some folks think it's heavy (I don't).
Still, you won't find a better machine for the money - I have never seen one yet. This in fact will go head to head against machines costing hundreds more in terms of depth. I can highly recommend it to about anyone.
