Good for the money
I dig the pull tab/nickel sound, it may be a nickel, a pull tab, or gold. I dig the penny, dime cause it's most likely a penny or a dime, and it's the same sound as a quarter, or a dollar coin. Other than not being able to find coins deeper than about 6 inches, this machine rocks.

For the hell of it I bought the bounty hunter elite 2200( discovery 2200) from Big 5 and I've got to say this detector does really well. Found lots of clad anywhere from zero to 4 inches maybe 5 inches for sure, which here in Colorado is great, because we have such high mineral content and rocky conditions, and other than gold, 3-4 inch depth isn't too bad and it pinpoints damn close to the target, saves on the digging!
I hit the local schools once in a while and silver is never more than a couple inches! Also have a whites coinmaster pro, with a few more bells and whistles but in my opinion is pretty inferior to the 2200, the coinmaster pro has annoying issues like false hits, its erratic, inconsistent! Anyway, just my two cents, have fun!!

Then they take turns searching for treasure. I have to fight with them to get my turn. They usually win. We have found many treasures also at local parks. Now I am looking to purchase another Elite 2200 for the kids. And I'm sure I with again be without one.

Elite 2200 - Nice detector
I got it home, ate breakfast, put it together, and read through the manual. After reading the manual, I grabbed some coins, nail, screw, pop tab, and air tested it. All the features worked good. I like how it gives different tones for different items. It's pretty light, and was easy to swing. After air testing it, I started searching my yard. I found 2 pennies, pop tabs, small pieces of scrap metal, and a screw all in about 10 minutes. It seems to go about 6 inches on the smaller stuff and 8 inches on the quarter or bigger pieces. After eating lunch my wife and I took it to a park near the picnic area. I found 2 pennies, a nickle, and some pop tabs in about 20 minutes. Most of the targets were easy to pinpoint and locate. There were a couple targets that I was getting an Iron reading, but could not locate. Overall, I'm satisfied with the Elite 2200. I'm sure it will find me plenty of coins and jewelry the more time I spend using it. I'm going to have tons of fun with it. If you're looking for a low price detector that has some good features and is easy to use, that will actually find treasure, I would recommend it.

I bet I can find more value in gold and silver jewelry with my 150 dollar elite 2200 then others can find in gold nuggets with there 800 dollar gold detectors.
