Start your Bottle Cap Collection!

Assembly was simple and while it came with a DVD, youtube has a number of helpful getting started videos as well as recommended settings for searching in various environments such as wet sand (Jewelry, sensitivity 4, notch out to the left of nickels). I used this for a few days during a beach vacation. It was fun! While I did not discover that chest of gold coins I'd hoped for, it was like buying a $1 lottery ticket - it enabled dreaming and each "beep" was fun to pursue. The pinpoint feature was most impressive showing me EXACTLY where the plunge my plastic scoop. 9 out of 10 times, I was right on with the first scoop. To console myself for not finding that $5000 tennis bracelet, I considered my finds a public service, removing potentially harmful metal tent stakes from the sand. I did find a dollar in change over three days and each time the display exactly and accurately showed a 25 cent piece when the find was a quarter. I look forward to trying this in other environments, but as a mental distraction while the kids were napping, it was a great way to pass time and enjoy the sun, surf, and sand!
