I have been using metal detectors for years!! I thought my father would have a great time with one as it is a great way to get outside and get some exercise. After comparing lots of brands and different models, I purchased this Treasure Cove metal detector. It seemed like the most bang for the buck. I was right! WHAT A BARGAIN!! This metal detector has turned out to be as good as other detectors that can cost two to three times as much. My father uses it daily, has found all kinds of things, from coins to rings and best off all, he has found a great hobbie and I have found what I am going to give as Christmas gifts this year. I would HIGHLY recommend this!
This "Surf Metal Detector " is great fun at the beach. The unit is light weight and easy to use. My first find was a rusty bottle cap. The unit has great volume so you can hear over the ocean waves. Just another fun hobby to have fun in the sun. Would recommend.
Appears to work as advertised. Lost my wedding ring in our very large yard and decided it was cheaper to buy this rather than buy a new ring. Found my ring in about 30 minutes of searching with the metal detector. Look forward to trying it out at the beach next summer.
I bought this for my 14 yr old hoping to start him on a treasure filled journey since he enjoys treasure hunting so much. The battery didn't last long and it was kinda flimsy for the price. He lost interest after a few weeks due to the head ache of keeping it charged enough to work.
I received the metal detector a few weeks ago but we live in Minnesota and the ground is still frozen. We did try it out in the alley behind our house and found some bottle caps and such. Can't wait for better weather to really try it out.
I purchased this for my brother-in-law for Christmas and he was delighted with it. I do not know if he has used it as yet but he has wanted one for a long time. It was smaller and lighter than I expected but with today's technology that is not a bad sign. It is a good way to get exercise and find possible treasures at the same time. It has a comfortable grip that will not tire the user's arm too soon. I did not rate the durability high as it has not yet been used
bought this for my husband who is disabled to help him get out of house.has wanted one for years. very good quality item he loves it and can hold it ok and still walk has a foot 1/2 gone so has problems walking and holding stuff. but this does ok. would recomend it to others also bought a child size one for my grandson to use with his grandpa.
If you like metal detecting, this item is great! For starters it not only work perfectly, but it's affordable, especially in comparison to some other models out there!!! I spent the other day walking along the beach with it and I actually found something...it was nothing super spectacular but good to know this thing actually works...I can't wait to get out there and see what I find next!
My husband has a very expensive metal detector that he can even use under water while diving so we wanted to get our children detectors they could use with him out in the country or up on the beach. My husband has grumbled about the poor quality of these detectors but to be fair it may just be because he is spoiled after owning the cream of the crop in his detector. My children only used their detectors a couple of times and were disappointed because they didn't pick up very well. My husband said he couldn't get them to calibrate properly and growled at my choice in purchasing them.
We had great trouble getting it to work correctly. It took help from a tech geek family member to get it adjusted correctly. The instructions were only slightly better than useless. Now that it works properly, it is adequate for the money. I would recommend this model only for beginners who are unsure whether they will use it a lot or a little; if you are certain it will get a lot of use, spend more money for a better quality.
This is the first metal detector we've purchased or used, and it is more for fun than for anything serious. Highly recommend it for that use, as it has an adjustable sensitivity scale, is lightweight and easy to handle, even for our 7 year old grandson. We plan to have lots of fun with it on our vacations at the beach and in the mountains!

I gave this metal detector to my fiance for his birthday and he absolutely loves it. He's always wanted one, so giving this gift to him was very special. We were very satisfied with how well the metal detector worked and are looking forward to using it a lot more in the furture. His dad is even thinking about getting one and is wanting to start making metal detecting one of his hobbies.
My son had lost 2 good throwing knives in the grass a week before we got our metal detector. We had looked for the knives for an hour with no success. The detector located the knives easily in just a few minutes. One knife was buried about 2 inches under the dirt. Fun to play with but haven't found any gold in the backyard ...yet.
