Quite simply excellent all round. I'm a beginner at this but found it easy
to use in all conditions (ie. wet sand/dry sand, shallow and deep dives).
Everything it promised and then some.... had some good finds.
As our diving expedition was a very expensive trip we also brought a Tesoro
Tiger Shark - just in case - and to give us a few more options (or so we
thought). The Garrett performance was similar to the Tesoro (both being
very good) but it was easier to use for a beginner. Obviously the Tesoro
had a few more tweaking options available but unfortunately it only lasted
3 dives due to water leaking in at 25m! And YES we did look after it.
The Garrett would easily be our recommendation for a GOOD, easy to use,
underwater detector. Get one - you'll love it I'm sure!

The Sea Hunter is a top flight freshwater beach machine. The only
complaints I have are the drifting threshold sound in standard mode,the
wobbly stem assembly when using the 14 inch loop,and the black colored
loops which are the same color as our river bottoms. It is very good at
picking up gold and has great battery life. I have two of them and they are
well worth the money!

This unit is very sensitive and will find deep targets. I hunt the wet sand
and the surf in all metal mode with elimination set at zero. You will dig
some trash but dig all targets because treasure hids among trash. I found a
wedding band my third time out. It was at least 12 inches down in the sand
in about a foot of water. I would recommend this unit to anyone that hunts
wet sand and in the surf. If you want a dry sand unit I don't think this
would be your best choice.
I got no complaints

I have been using My Sea Hunter for about 4 months and I love it. I was
worried before I purchased the unit because I read in some reviews that it
is noisy. I live in Hawaii were there is lava rocks and black sand beaches
and I've found it to be stable without having to discriminate. I've found
mainy gold rings, silver rings, and a titanium ring with a nice diamond in
it. In my opinion the Sea Hunter is a great machine that works great for
me, and if this is a machine that you are considering then I hope that you
like it as much as I do.

This machine would be a hard one to beat for depth. I have dug down in
packed sand as far as 14 inches to find a sewing needle.Now that is
sensitive. In the water I have found many rings and coins 1 foot plus deep
in sandy bottom. My only complaint is that it only has one tone for no
matter what is down there. It is simple to use and worth every cent.

One day out and I was used to it. Easy to set, great in tidal pools, (have
found plenty of coins and jewelery WITHOUT even using discreet mode),
balances well for long hours on the beach. Shorten the stick in two minutes
without tools and I'm snorkeling, FABULOUS! I'll keep looking, but can't
find anything to cry about, it's well worth the price.

Sea Hunter does the job. It takes a little to get used too, but in time it
proves worth the money. To pin point in deep water lay the coil on the
side. This way can get a good estimate on where to dig. In time you will
not need to do this. gold picks up great and silver will bite lowd. Allot
of great things with this detector. I have tried several mounting
techniques the best is on the top of the stem. More control in water. All
in all a great machine.

The first day at the beach, I went out and found
a man's diamond ring and a wedding band. My volume control worked well. The
only problem was
fighting the waves. This year I am goning to take scuba lessons to make it
easier. While all the others
are walking the beach finding coins, I was in the water finding valuebles.
I was skeptic about the under
water thing at first, but I have had not problems and it is 4 years old.

Purchased sea hunter mark II about 2
weeks ago., been out 4 times , each time gets better!!!
Good targets on the
rise!!!,discreate trash mode is extremely stable, however i have not used
disc. very much,didn't see the
need yet... the stability in this mode is excellent, and a big difference
from the standard disc.
mode,,which does have alittle driff in the threshold, but acceptable..
their may be a slight loss of
depth in the discreate trash mode, but worth it in most cases.
i have found many
coins, and alittle trash, as where i've been seem to be lite trash..
Anyone interested in
a pi machine, I think this one would be worthy of giving it a try..
happy hunting!!!! D.C.
