First let me say I don't profess to know much about metal detecting. I bought this metal detector to find my wedding ring, which flew off my finger the other night while I was playing volleyball in the backyard with the kids (it was a chilly night and the ring was loose on my finger.) After an hour of searching, I figured it was worth it to buy an inexpensive metal detector in hopes of finding my ring.

I ordered it on Wednesday, it arrived on Friday (2 day shipping for $3.99 with prime.) I put the batteries in, read through the well-written booklet and did the tests it suggested. We had no problems finding the test objects (penny, quarter, nail) so I started "sweeping" the area where I thought it might be. I found it within 15 minutes. Granted, it wasn't buried in the ground or anything, but we did have several other "hits" that were definitely objects in the ground - strong signals but we just didn't take the time to dig since I knew my ring was buried in grass, not dirt. The kids can't wait for their turn now that the ring has been found. I think they will get some fun use out of it and they want to dig on our other "hits" from tonight.

The pros for this item were the fast shipping, easy to use right out of the box (just had to insert 2 9V batteries), well-written instructions, and it is Made in the USA. It felt sturdy and well-made but it was short in length (it is a Jr. size, after all) - didn't matter for my use but an adult wanting to do some serious detecting would want a longer one. The length feels just right for my children (ages 11, 8 and 5) and it is not too heavy, either.

This detector is excellent for kids, The size is just right and it introduces them into the world of detecting. The detector is of good solid quality and is a little version of an entry level adult model. You do have to explain to them how to use the discrimination controls because they are kind of confusing for a kid but they pick it up quick. The detector has actually found old cans and coins that have been about 5 feet underground so it searches pretty deep. I recommend this product!

I bought it to clean up my yard after a roofing job. I found a ton of nails and a few other things that I have lost over the years. Great for the kids to treasure hunt too!

I purchased this for my 7 year old granddaughter who was actually asking for one that was more of a "toy". She loves it, it works very well and has opened up a whole new area of interest for her. It's well made and easy for a child to use.

I bought this for my 8 yr old son who wanted a "real" metal detector for Christmas. After reading a lot of reviews I settled on this one. We live on a few acres so we weren't sure what would happen. We did plant a few coins which he found right away and then he started to find other items! Even buried 3-5 inches deep! This was very cool and pretty soon the other "boys" wanted to join in (my husband and Dad too). We found old nails, cans, some kind of tool part, etc. For the price, this is a very fun and easy to use toy/tool. I would recommend it for the amateur-out-for-fun person, not a serious, I-am-looking-for-treasure person.

i bought it to find the lot line stakes in my yard. it found them no problem. one was 3 inches below the surface. also found some pennies and some other junk that i didn't really want to find. then i read the directions and learned how to turn the sensitivity down so i didn't find those small objects. i noticed it finds the re-bar inside my concrete driveway too. that wasn't particularly usefull, but it was fun to play with for a few seconds.
