4 Operating Modes
The Quicksilver--which runs on two 9-volt batteries--is designed for easy handling, with a lightweight, ergonomic build that's comfortable for hours on end. The detector boasts three operating modes controlled by an intuitive touchpad. Motion All-Metal mode offers a single tone that detects all types of metal. Progressive Discrimination mode, by contrast, uses a single tone to automatically eliminate iron and other unwanted metals. The Notch mode adds further versatility to the detecting process, with the ability to manually eliminate, or “notch out,” a select range of items.
Bounty Hunter equips all its metal detectors with a preset ground balance that neutralizes the response to mineral content in the ground. As a result, the Quicksilver can distinguish between iron in the ground and valuable metals. The detector owes its accuracy to such features as an LCD display with a four-segment digital target ID, which identifies buried targets with ease, and a three-tone audio feedback function. The Quicksilver even searches deeper than many other detectors thanks to the 8-inch open coil design, which searches to 8 inches for coin-size objects and 3 feet for larger objects (the search depth corresponds with a One-Touch Depth Select Control). Plus, the coil and stem are waterproof, so you can submerge them when searching for treasure in damp grass or shallow water.
To ensure privacy, the Quicksilver comes equipped with a ¼-inch headphone jack compatible with most headphones. Other features include an easy-to-read LCD display, a low battery indicator, an adjustable-height design, a padded armrest, and a detector stand. The Quicksilver weighs 2.8 pounds and carries a five-year limited warranty.
