Quick draw II
February 23, 2011
This was my first metal detector and I am very satisfied with it. I have
found 10 hot wheels from when I was a kid in my back yard. I also have
found about a dollar in the first two weeks of having it, 2 quarters and a
Kennedy half dollar. I would recommend this to beginners to intermediate.

I purchased this off of Amazon because of the many favorable reviews. I
knew nothing about metal detecting at this point. I tried it for a few
weeks and became very disappointed with its performance. I had a lot of
trouble pin pointing my targets with it. And the BH pin pointer which was
also included was equally as bad.
I found myself digging really huge holes in my searches because of these
drawbacks. This was not fun at all.
I returned it to Amazon for a refund and started reading metal detecting
forums and comments.
I ended up purchasing an Ace 250 and pro pointer and am completely
satisfied. The Ace is everything I hoped the Quickdraw II would be and

Is not the detector for me
July 05, 2010
The QDII is a beginners detector to start with. The different tones for
metal types is good...as the depth range of the object is good as well. The
bad qualitys to me are all the false readings, the chatter and most of all
this detector has no pinpointing quality what so ever. I have to swing the
unit over a reading 10-20 times to try to even half way pinpoint where the
object is in about a 4 to 5 inch radius.
I think I am going back to buy another whites.

Same as the Radio Shack Discovery 2000

Radio Shack has been selling this detector for several years under the
Radio Shack name, such is mine. It's an excellent MD for the $. It will
also find Gold nuggets, Not as sensitive as the GB or Lobo I'm sure.
However, I've tested mine with very small nuggets to 4" max depth. You just
need to know how to Calibrate for that. I found Auto notch to be best.
Great relic machine, will easily sound a quarter at 10".
Well worth the $$$

I have read both negative and positive things about this detector. Mostly,
people with more expensive units trying to justify them spending $500.00
and up to get the same results.
Just so happens I was out near an old farm house built in the 1800's with
a couple of other people who had more expensive units than I.
By mid afternoon we were just about to leave when I got a good hit. 2 jars
filled with marbles, coppersilver coins, buttons and a couple of empty
bullet casings. I cleaned eveything up, put them back in the jars and they
now sit on my desk.
This was only my 3rd time out with the unit and I am still smiling!

I've had bounty hunter, whites and minelab. Have no problems with anyone of
these. I got two detecters in the same year, payed for them with my find in
less then 3 mouths. Practice and your detecter will work good.
Found my wedding ring
September 01, 2008
I got this detector as an entry level to see if I'd stick with it, and in
the unlikely hope of finding my lost wedding ring. Great news on both
parts. The machine is easy to use for beginners, seems to be pretty
accurate in finding coins, and as I found out this weekend, my gold wedding
ring that was under 4" of sod and soil in my front yard. Keeps things
simple, and definitely works. I am having a tough time controlling the
"chatter" at beaches, but it may be my understanding of how to use the
Great for the Price!

I have been metal detecting for about 40 years and have owned Whites,
Garretts, Detex, Radio Shack detectors. I have owned my QD2 for about 2
years and have found over 400 coins, a gold pocket watch frame at 8", some
civil war relics. The depth has been comparable to a whites prism 5. The
discrimination works pretty well and depth indication is almost right on!
The only thing that would make this detector even better would be Pinpoint
capability. Overall, it is a great detector for the price.
Needs pinpoint feature

Last week I dug out my whites coinmaster from 1981. I got the itch after
hearing about all the new technology, so I purchased a Bounty Hunter quick
draw II. Very disappointed. This machine does not pinpoint at all, I have
spent 5 minutes trying to pinpoint an object and then give up. I took out
my old whites and found the object right away. I am returning this machine
and buying another whites.

Great Machine for a Great Price

This has been a great coin machine although I have not found any silver or
even wheats. The soil here eats zinc in this country. Found lots of clad.
It really sounds off when over gold or coins and have on a couple of
occasions picked up penny's to 6". Tone differentiation is fantastic and
for the most part is accurate on the depth unless it's a large iron object
or pop,beer can etc. Have had a hard time notching out all pull tabs with
out loosing silver but have still found silver rings. Have found several 10
and 14 K rings so I have no gripes with this machine at all.
