Good all around detector

April 12, 2015
Have had mine for 10 years. Works good in sandy beaches. Found a gold ring after several much more expensive detectors missed it. The more you use it the better you get with it. I like to use all metal and dig junk, but sometimes get surprised. Good exercise.

Love it

I bought this detector used off of eBay and so far I've had no trouble at all with it. I've found several coins it seems to have a pretty accurate discrimination on coins from what I can tell. I air tested it with a variety of coins and it would give a strong signal up to 10 inches. Did a ground test with coins and it would reliably detect them down to 6 inches and sometimes 8.

I personally think this is a great beginners machine. It's very light, easy to swing and reasonably durable. I think bounty hunter machines are under rated and they can stand up there with much more expensive machines. I would recommend this machine to anyone beginning the hobby. Happy swinging!!!

Not a good detector

February 26, 2012
I bought my fortune hunter on craigslist. org for $70 bucks. The bad suff about this metal detector is that all the signals get mixed up for an example if it is iron it would show up as iron or other signals and would bounce to other signals (signals are very bouncy) to find out what the metal is you have to go over the traget a couple times to see what mostly shows up. For coins the sigals would show up correctly but it would sometimes miss the coin. So for coin hunting I would say its ok. This detector detects silver and coins good but like I said it could miss your target. This detector will not detect gold even though in the manual it says it could even detect gold flakes. So now I'll try and sell my detector for $100 bucks and buy a Garret Ace 250.
