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.

GTA 500 Review
For the money this machine is down right awesome and goes really deep for the better finds. You'll find more coins and gold and silver then you can dream of. And it is simple and easy to use if you follow the books and watch the videos.
