THIS DETECTOR STOPPED WORKING THE FIRST TIME I USED IT IN WATER.
it's ok for those just starting out. for serious hunters, you really need a more sophisticated detector.
It worked ok out of the water and wading. But when I submerged the control box underwater it lasted about 20 minutes.
I gave this 1 star, only because it works onland. I purchased 3 of these. Each only lasted about 5 minutes underwater. I read the owners manual and did eveything correct. Do not purchase or it will be a waste of your time and money.
If you are a treasure seeker, this detector WILL go in water and works at 20 feet really nice. It's still working and finding all kinds of really neat stuff...
I chose this metal detector over the youth because of the waterproof depth and am very glad I did. I think if the child is going to be near water this is your best buy. My grandchild loved it! It works great and it's priced very well.
Didn't want to invest in an expensive unit, and glad I didn't this worked beyond my expectations. I knocked a tackle tray over my boat when I was fishing and among the items lost, my grandfathers civil war coin that had been my lucky coin since I was 8. Used this in approximately 35 feet below surface, and I recovered my coin(two days after I left the location)! I have since used this three times all of which turned up nothing but the unit still works (I find cans) great.
I had a slight issue with moisture at first then I realized I needed to tighten the cap better, then I had no further issues. It's a great value, I have seen other units like this for over $300.00
I took this unit on a recent vaction trip to Cancun...I LOVED IT!! Easy to use for my children as well as myself. The attached headphones is a great idea...makes it impossible to forget or leave them behind. A simple, low toned beeping noise let me know I found something! My kids were stoaked to find coins! I would recommend this unit to anyone that is looking for something simple and easy to use!
Built strong waterproof not to heavy.And it works. Turn on and go
I'm always hesitant to put electronics all-the-way underwater, so i bought this one with the intention of only using it with the search coil down in rivers and streams. It works great! I noticed that others had problems with complete submersion, so i avoided that. I'm using it almost daily to search a creek that i have running behind me house. I've found lots of interesting relics. This is a cool product for $50.00!
I took this to the the beach the first day I got it. Worked nice during trial run, but it stopped working a few minutes into the water. I couldn't even turn it off later, the knob seemed to have shorted out. I would not recommend it.
