Hunk of Junk!!!
December 04, 2008
I bought this exact thing through Kellyco where it is relabeled and
renamed the Viper Trident. To start off when I received it and put it
together the search coil was 45 deg offset from the controls. I Emailed
Kellyco and the service was good,they sent me a new lower rod,but it was
too big (circumference) and would not slide into the tube on the control
housing! Finally I just decided the heck with it and drilled a new hole in
the original rod that fit to properly line up the coil. Bench tested it and
got a quarter at about 5 inches and dime about 3.5 inches.
$149.00 for this while I see it being sold for $458 with a MRSP of $895.00
these prices are total rubbish!!! $149. was too much! It is cheaply made
Chinese garbage! The reason I gave it a 2 instead of a 1 is because it will
pickup coins very close to the surface and my 8 year old kid can use it. I
haven't had it in water yet, but I suspect when I do that will be the end
of it and I'll be testing out the 5 year warranty. The thing I have trouble
understanding is why a company with the reputation and good service of
Kellyco would bother even selling stuff like this. I will be buying a water
detector this summer (Tesoro or Minelab) but I am going to have a second
look at a few other dealers since Kellyco talks up the Viper Trident as
such a great detector,in my eyes this destroys some of their credibility
especially passing it off at $895.00 MSRP.
AQUAVISION PRO UNDERWATER DIVING METAL DETECTOR
December 03, 2008
I bought my Aquavision Pro metal detector from a reputable dealer
http://betterdetector.com/aqua-vision-pro.html , I do not buy on e bay any
longer because of the new search engine eBay has now and paypal is nothing
but fraudulent. I have bought more than one Treasure Hunter metal detector
for myself, friends and family. I have had my Aquavision Pro Treasure
Hunter metal detector and have found it to be much superior to even some
more expensive models I have bought, it has paid for itself over and over
again and then some. Keep in mind the average underwater metal detector
sells for around a thousand dollars. I bought this unit some time back and
have been delighted with it. I know many of them look the same, but they
are not, I have friends who has used the other units and it seems that they
do not hold up or detect quite as well. I have found out that this metal
detector is designed by Treasure Hunter and all the other models are
Chinese copies. Although Treasure Hunters unit is made in China, the
quality process, engineering and specifications are controlled by the USA
company Treasure Hunter.
I would highly recommend all Treasure Hunter products that I have had
including the Aquavision Pro.

I bought this detector on ebay for 142.00. The very first time I used this
detector, I went 20 ft under water it just made a lots of noise for 1
minute, then it filled up with water.Junk
Why is this thing on the market?
August 25, 2008
I have made the same mistake others are making. I bought the aquavision pro
thinking this was a great deal. The poor instruction page says waterproof
to 133' or so. Went diving in a crystal clear spring.at about 5' turned the
thing on, it made a sound like a dieing bird and couldn't get it to
anything after that. The head phones are cheep. I also saw an oil sheen
comming from the control knobs. If any one knows the phone number to
chapmans lt plus please let me know. email@example.com
Not water tight.
February 25, 2008
I was in the river chest deep and the Aquavision Pro stopped working
immediately. Seems like water was getting in through the control knobs.
This happened twice. After it dried out it worked again. I sold it for $50,
it's not worth any more.

4EVER DIVE from
Aquavision Pro - No Service Department!
January 28, 2008
I had a problem with my headphones cord and the company told me they could
not do anything about it. So buyer beware. The machine works pretty good
but if it breaks you are in trouble!
It look's like a million buck's
January 22, 2008
Well, its to late for me, I already bought it! Guess what? I am still
waiting for it. I paid $109.00, wow! Imagine that!. I saved from $799.95
(retail) a total of ($690.95) on the "aquavision pro", it will arrive on
Monday, on 01/28, I just sold my new bounty hunter "quick silver" for
$100.00, not bad! It was a Christmas gift that costed $85.00. well, I used
it three times only. Priced at $149.99 (retail) in private store, not at
ebay! I know it was a gift! But I am a heavy duty diver, over 100 dives
last year alone! It's was my childhood dream to own a under water metal
detector, but they are way to expensive, until now! Can't express regret
yet! but, I will make sure to let you's know my own personal experience
which I hope is not as bad as your's. (but), I doubt it!. login out,

AquaVision Pro Still Working
June 27, 2007
My AqauaVision Pro is still working good. It is OK for finding all metals
but does not discriminate worth a darn. If you go water hunting rarely,...
then this unit will work for you. If you live near the ocean,...forget it.
