Pretty decent detector

March 24, 2014
I have had mine for maybe 10yrs now and every time I go out I come back with a pocket full of wheat pennies and newer pennies, dimes, and quarters. Ground is really rocky in some spots, and extremely heavy topsoil in yards. Coin depth really varies based on year and weight of coin. Dimes are usually 3in down, while same year quarters are deeper... Wheats are right around 5-6in.

Found 1961 penny at 7in...Not sure how that happened. Overall good at finding metal in the ground but not sure if I am getting everything. Real lack of silver in my pocket for some reason. No gold b/c I notch out iron, don't feel like digging every square foot. A lot of garbage and iron ore in the ground in central PA.
Oldest found coin was a 1916 wheat. I would rate this as a great starter but I am going to sell and move up. If I am going to put more time into detecting then I am going to pay up to $1,000. All comes down to how much you want to spend!!!!!

Not bad for the price but

The manual says the 2200 will detect a quarter 7 inches deep. It will, but it drops from a high tone to a mid, zinc penny, tone past 5.5 inches, a copper penny or dime drops a tone past 4.75 inches and nickels drop a tone just past three inches deep. It also has a slow recovery speed, the build quality isn't as good as it should be, it's weak on nickels and if iron is rejected it won't detect small gold rings.
Having said the above, it does well for hunting pennies, dimes and quarters from surface to four inches deep and pinpoints well considering it doesn't have a pinpoint mode.

This machine is great for the money. It has very good depth and OK ID but its not the greatest with good targets next to trash, it definitely gonna pick up what the coil crosses first and if there is targets under iron if you got iron disc out you're gonna miss the good target.

Having said that in reality I've found quite a bit with it, I just dig everything. If I want to cherry pick I will cross every signal in several directions, if I get a good tone even in only one direction I dig.
For the money you cant beat it. Would be nice to have gb adjust though.

My husband has had a metal detector for years. He bought a Discovery 2200 for me at an auction estate sale. I went scoping with him last week and found $1. 27 in coins and a braclet (cheap) in about 2 hours. This was the first time I ever metal detected and was very happy. I love my Discovery 2200.
