Most helpful review for Bounty Hunter Lone Star ProSlow, but works!!
I was a little shocked my first signal broke the audio about 6" AFTER the coil passed the target!! The ID was right on, however, as was the tonal ID. Pinpointing required a slow sweeping of the target, but after a few minutes, I had the hang of it. I was concerned about multiple targets close together, but in the notch mode I found coins near trash. The weight is comparable to the Compadre, which meant I could-and did-search for hours on end!
After frequent testing, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a good starter unit. My "PC tablet on a stick" has features comparable to higher priced machines! If I were to recommend changes, I would have the "zincers" break at high tone instead of being in the tab audio zone---although the visual ID is correct. That way, no looking at the meter to verify.
Also, I would have a last mode memory instead of a complete reset. A pinpoint would be nice, but for the price, I can live with it as is.

Most helpful review for Garrett Ace 150Wicked Bang For The Buck!
I received my Ace 150 as a birthday gift this summer. I must admit it does take a little to get used to, but once you have figured out all the features and signal sounds you will be on your way to digging up a bottomless pit of goodies! As for the pin pointing complaint I have no problem with it. I do the "X" pattern over the signal and can come within 1-3 inches of the target. I find that some of the newer Canadian coins do not fall into the coin range but actually into the iron segment. But who really cares! I am sure most detectorists aren't interested in digging up 2007 quarters anyway!
As for the good stuff like silver, copper, and brass items they sound nice strong signals in the coin range that you can be about 90% sure with some practice you will be digging a worthy target.
Pennies and silver coins sound a repeating bell tone when you position the coil directly over the top of the target. I hear a lot of novices complain that it can't find gold alone but it falls into the pulltab range. This is true but one thing to remember is that even a $1000+ detector will give you the same signal! Just keep digging up those pull tabs and you will find gold! This detector is one heck of a deal for the price so don't be deterred by some of the negative comments you may have heard. Just be patient and learn what the machine is telling you.
Remember that the detector is just a tool to find the metal, and you are the real detector! I hope this review is of help to anyone interested! Thanks for reading!
