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 Bounty Hunter Lone StarVery reliable
Got my Lonestar for my birthday and have been having a great time. This is my first detector so I am not a pro, but have had a lot of success. Found the best thing to do is practice in my yard with coins taped to pieces of cardboard. I can now pinpoint coins within a 3 inch circle and rarely have to dig a hole (can just poke the ground with a hunting knife). I have thought about buying a more expensive detector but see no reason to right now. I almost always find the coins it says are there, and find a lot of nickels too which it gives off a seperate tone for. I use the auto disc. mode for coin shooting and do just fine. When it sayd penny it's always a penny, when it says silver ie. dime, quarter, .50 cent ect. it's there. When I get a high tone that is for silver and it seems to be on too big an area it is usually an aluminum can. After the first month i've been able to distinguish the difference no problem. Found $26.00 in change in the first month and several old coins and jewelry too. I love it. Way to go Bounty Hunter.
