Fair review of a great detector
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.

Niece and easy
Just got it the best I ever used had two days of warmup tryed it out in a small town park where I hunt with my xterra 70 I did not believe the difference. I pulled more coins in 45 min than I thought in a 20x20foot area, wheat pennys dimes exc. Its great try one you wont regret it.
