The Honest Truth

January 09, 2010
I have had my T2 for about 2 years now and I am very, very happy with it! The depth is great, the recovery time is great. I got a 4" coil for it and have went back over some old sites with a tremendous amount of iron in the soil and have pulled out some very nice silver that were masked with the larger coil. I have a friend that I hunt with who is just learning his machine. If I find something deep, I mark it and let him know what I ID it as then he comes over and tries his machine to see what he gets. Anything in the 8" - 10" range he has difficulty with or gets no response where my machine is loud and clear.

Interference. Yes, this machine will have some issues with interference but, by using a combination of the sensitivity and discrimination you can get through it and still get depths to 8" easy. I really haven't experimented with the frequency shift(12.821 - 15.158)
I did have one experience where I was hunting and started getting a pulsing sound. I thought my detector had to get repaired. I couldn't get it to stop. I took it home and fired it up and everything was fine. I went back to find out the behind the row of bushes I was hunting was an electric fence surrounding a pasture! I couldn't use my detector there at all.

One note, these detectors are going on EBay now for a whole lot more than what I paid for mine so I don't think I can be way off on saying that these are definitely worth the money and they are in high demand!

My latest Machine a T2

December 19, 2009
I have owned many machines over the 35 years detecting. This one astonishing. On searching a grass field that I had given up on. A Henry 8th Halfgroat two georgian farthings at depth beyond my other machine several buttons plus a Mid Iron Age Brooch.

All in no more than an acre, cannot be bad. Need careful use when iron contamination is present but that will come with time. Only had it 10 days. Another recent find in the grass. A cut halfpenny Henry 3rd Voided cross.

Great detector easy to use. I re-detected a field that has been done many times before and nothing had been found. This time I found six coins that were all too deep for the other detectors so I would highly recommend this machine.

What a machine

July 25, 2009
I have had the teknetics t2 for about 3 weeks now . I traded in my old minelab soveriegn xs2a pro to help pay for this detector as I felt the minelab just was not getting in between the iron and I was missing the good stuff on my iron infested roman/saxon site's. Well what can I say, I have been out 3 times and found 7 hammered, 29 roman bronze coins, a saxon penny and a siliqua of jovian and lots of buttons and lead at great depth that the minelab had missed (all the finds were on or very close to iron).

Here are my settings sen 75 disc 10 tones 2+ . I am very impressed with this machine and would recommend to everyone!

Having had time to test the T2 (terminator) I add a few settings suggestions that might help you. I found a Gold coin 8" deep and my friends call me Silverman, as I always manage to find a silver coin. T2 paid for itself with a Saxon bishops silver pendant within 2 months! Keeping the Gold coin!

Teknetics T2

December 07, 2008
As a first time novice with metal detectors I read loads of reviews before I paid £475 for my T2. Never held a MD in my life! So I set the GC and settings Sens; 70 Disc 15 and tone 2+ and hit the field. I found a George V silver Florin 5 old pennys a market weight belt buckle and a timble. It is so good I found a piece of lead 2mm x 3mm at 9 inches. Money well spend, perfect machine for the UK and the novice who wants to compete with the Goldmaxx's out there. I had more consistent finds than a veteran with his Goldmaxx! (Not to mention all the rubbish I digged haha)
I am hooked!

Excellent detector, I just had tested twice on a local park here in Santiago, Chile, SA and I had found lots of coins at deeps btw 2 to 8 inches. Easy to set up, very good discrimination and everything that the factory saids is thru.

Overall Rating 5 stars!


Great for UK conditions

November 03, 2008
Bought T2 a Month ago having previously been using Goldmaxx mk1 and have found 4 hammered coins in 5 outings including Lizzie 3 farthings and Edward 4th half penny which are both very tiny coins. This detector doesn't seem to miss anything and I can highly recommend it. You wont be wasting your money and it is easy to set up and use and also very lightweight.

My all time favourite.

May 17, 2008
I've been in the privileged position where I've been able to own and test some of the industries best detectors including the top models from minelab and xp. I bought the T2 after reading a positive report on one of the metal detecting forums in the uk...and I'm glad I did.

It's a very light detector that I can use all day without getting tired and I can honestly say that on my fields it has out performed any of my previous detectors. I've never had any problems with interference, I think the secret is not to "overcook" it on the sensitivity...it's sensitive even on a low setting. I read a good piece of advice by another reviewer and that was to ignore all your other detectors if you buy a t2 and just concentrate on learning the t2 for a couple of weeks....it definitely worked for me.

Don't forget that this is a personal opinion and not everybody will have the same success that I've had with the machine...every body has their own opinion of the perfect detector.But as I said earlier, in my own experience and on my fields the T2 has consistently out performed the top minelabs and xp's and that makes it my perfect machine. Well done Teknetics.

Teknectic T2

May 05, 2008
Build quality is very poor, had it 2 days before it wont berserk. The coil kept sounding off on stubble, looks a nice machine I will give it that, sent back to dealer and got my money back, dealer got back in touch with and confirmed it was faulty. Lucky escape, since I purchased a T2, I've seen second-hand prices tumble here in the UK, I just wish more care had been put into the build quality,for the T2 really looks the part, although it looks to be put into the shadows by the F75.
