Most helpful review for Makro Racer

Outstanding detector
The Makro Racer is the third metal detector that I own and use. I am amazed by the quick response of this unit while working in trash. The depth of recovery is unlike any machine that I have hunted with. I'm finding coins at 18 to 20 inches and I know it will do even better. It's very easy to use. It's very sturdy build but very light weight so you can hunt all day.

THE SECRETS-OF-THE-SOVEREIGN ELITE ///
HI ALL, the sovereign elite, this machine is like using a(dyson hoover!) tip: use in fix-tone turn (disc knob) anti-clockwise until it cant go no further, and do the same with (notch knob)and use in disc mode, put (headphones on) raise coil off the ground about 1ft, turn volume button (clockwise) as far as it will go, click (sensitivity) out of auto into manual range then turn back anti-clockwise as far as you can with out going back into (auto mode) then you can leave it set there!
(threshhold) to 12o'clock turn back anti-clockwise until the tone just disappears, rather than a (steady quite hum!) it gives this machine better sensitivity to smaller items and greater depth!
PS slow your sweep down to just below walking pace. \awesome/// INLAND OR BEACH
