Most helpful review for Bounty Hunter Sharp Shooter II

Bounty Hunter Sharp Shooter II is hard to beat.
I am very happy with my Bounty Hunter Sharp Shooter II. It takes time to learn the machine. I have found a gold ring, numerous silver rings, silver coins, clad, clad and more clad change.

This detector is a dime and quarter magnet. I have dug a child's silver ring at a fresh water beach over 12 inches deep. It regularly finds coins eight inches and deeper. I set the sensitivity at around 12:00 o'clock and the discrimination at 10:00 o'clock for moderately trashy areas, more sensitivity and less discrimination for clean areas.
After getting a high pitch repeatable tone, I switch to all metal mode. I know the size of the object before I dig it by passing the coil over the target and listening for the tone in the all metal mode. The shorter the tone the smaller the object. Longer tone means a soda pop can 90% of the time. Short tones or precise tone means a small coin sized object.
Once I figured this out, my trash to treasure ratio increased dramatically.

I thought you had to spend a lot of money on a detector, but this detector has proved me wrong. I watch a lot of You Tube videos and I am finding as much and sometimes more than the guys using the $1,400 detectors. I saw a new Bounty Hunter Sharp Shooter II at Academy Sporting Goods the other day for $149.00! I bought it so I can take along someone and introduce them to the world of metal detecting.
My wife thinks I need intervention.
