I have had my T-2 se for about 20 months, my motto with this machine is practice, practice practice. My very first trip out with this machine I found a 12lb cannonball. I have since found dozens of bullets a belt buckle U S and numerous other civil war items this machine is so sensitive when properly tuned I have found civil war rivets and buttons as deep as 9 inches.

I bought my T2SE for about 500.00 second hand WELL worth what I paid for it. This machine has done pretty well around old home sites on old silver dimes also well pleased with my T2 easy to operate but does take a little time and practice.

T2 best so far

December 16, 2016
I have been detecting since 1995. Started with a Garrett 2500, since then I have used a Garrett 1500 the at pro, at gold, ace 350. In Whites the xlt, mxt, eagle, treasure pro, Fisher cz5, old f75, f70. A Blisstool a xp deus and the T2 se can beat all of them. It's the best detector I have ever used. I look for raw depth and this machine has it and more. Easy to use and set up. Just love it.

Never used it on a beach, so can't help you there. Just save up your money and get the detector you can keep and won't be looking for something else. The T2 SE rocks. Using BP, or CL then switching to all metal is so deep you honestly won't believe it.

The best metal detector!

October 30, 2015
So read the review by the Whites fan and I have to disagree and question just how well the writer is with the T2 as his biggest complaints don't make any sense if you understand the T2. Granted, I have the newest version of the T2 (SE) which gives advanced FE search mode for areas with higher interference and the absent "notch" isn't absent but what Teknetics calls "hum".

Frankly I believe what the writer doesn't care for is actually what I love most about the T2, what he refers to as very unstable, I refer to as very sensitive. It is noisy, but when most detectors need to run with higher positive gain to accomplish what the T2 accomplishes naturally I say it's what makes the T2 the BEST. AWESOME DEPTH AND LOADED WITH SEARCH MODES, From fine gold to deep cache finds... The T2 SE is hands down the BEST currently available delivering the most bang for your buck!!!

Way over priced

October 29, 2013
Don't fall for this one. I have been using the T2 for 2 years now the detector would be great hunting far away from any town or power lines, very unstable with any gain added to it. Limited on features, no light for night hunting no notch discrimination, every few months I take it out to confirm that I still don’t like it. 90 percent of my detectors are from White's. You shouldn’t have to get use to the unstable behavior.

If you want the same performance buy a Fisher F4, not the F5 because the F5 has more features and is more stable. It does have good depth with the small coil. Trust me I really want to like this detector since I paid so much for it, but every time and place I take it out its very disappointing. No one detector has all the features you will need to satisfy you. I usually take 4 different detectors with me when I go out and switch out during the day and different hunting situations. This review is my personal thoughts on this detector.

Keep in mind the resale value of the T2 will drop by 50 percent once you buy it, so buy used.

Fair review of a great detector

October 12, 2013
Okay, I am surprised there are not more reviews on this machine. The one review I just read was way out of touch and a unfair approach to this wonderful detector.

First things first, the chatter. Everyone has heard about the T2 chatter. YES, it does talk to you and I will admit that I was very frustrated when I first used this machine, but I stuck with it and I am glad I did. I've been metal detecting for 15 years and have three detectors in my arsenal and they are the Minelab E-trac, Teknetics T2SE (LTD) and the Tesoro Tejon. I would NEVER sell my E-Trac or my T2SE NEVER!

The T2 is my blitz machine and it is so light you can swing it for hours and hours and never tire. Cheaply built? Please, I have mine through swamps, ravines, muddy fields, pastures, sloppy wet grass, etc. This machine can stand up to it all and it has, don't believe me then visit my Youtube page (wes-n-va) ans see for yourself. The recovery speed of this machine is awesome, the depth is hard to beat on any VLF machine you will ever purchase right now on the market. I have found targets as deep as 12".

My soil is very loamy with some heavy clay pockets and it has performs great. I have hunted heavy red soil with high minerals and it did suffer some in the depth category, I'd say by half easy but that is expected with a VLF machine so I will not punish this machine for that.

If you hunt around a Minelab you will get tons of feedback and chatter. If you hunt around power lines and other forms of EMI you will get chatter. If you crank it up to 99 sensitivity you will get chatter. So, be smart with it and hunt around 94-96 sens and you will be just fine and not suffer any lose of depth.

Super trashy areas? No problem just switch over to the 5" coil and glide right through it with ease. Does well in iron infested spots also. Set up is a breeze. Turn it on, set the sens to 96, +2 tones, pump the coil up and down a few times to ground balance and start hunting. YES, it is that easy. I usually set my discriminate to around 41 to block out the hot rocks and iron nails. If I am hunting a fairly clean area I will hunt in all metal mode.

Is the T2 a little noisy at times, yes it is. Will the T2 reward you in relics and coins? YES it will!! It is a winner and you will love it with time and regular use.

6 out of 10

July 02, 2013
I own 20 different detectors and have been hunting for 20 years. Small coil works well and the 11 DD is nice for covering a lot of ground. The built in speaker is a toy compared to a Whites unit. You cant get any depth unless you crank it up and when you do it chatters all over the place. No back light, no memory, and very cheaply built, not worth the 1K. It just sits in a box in the garage because if I try and sell it I would loose $600 on it.
