The search for lost treasures

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute fantastic detector for the money! I originally bought this for my 10year old son so he could join me on metal detector outings as i thought it looked small, basic, lightweight, and easy to use. However...! I tried it out and was completely amazed at how strong and robust it was, and how well it functioned! The unit is easy to tune and setup, with tuning as easy as turning the tune knob until you hear a tone then back it off until it stops, the discrimination knob works smoothly and easy to fine tune (although i just turn it completely down for my son so he finds ANYTHING metal, thus increasing his finds) and the detection ability of this detector gives my very expensive setup a run for it's money! Truly left flabbagasted! On many occassion i have left my professional detector at home and just taken this out instead because of it's lightweight and convenient size and it's pure raw ability to do the job. Shrink it down and just carry it under arm! The only downside i found though is that the stem, despite being adjustable, could do with being just three inches longer overall as at 5ft10 i'd prefer those extra three inches of adjustment so that as a full grown adult i can skim the ground at a slightly more relaxed angle although it really is a trivial thing and certainly doesn't prevent an adult using it. You can go for hours without any real strain. Overall, you will not get a better detector for your money anywhere. I've seen similar units in appearance on a well known auction site and despite looking similar they are merely cheap clones and no way come close to the real deal ones with the Precision Gold name on them. These Precision Gold detectors are absolute value for money, so much so i went out and bought another two so we have a total of three of them in our family, now everyone can get involved on the beach or over fields! Definately worth a purchase. Thankyou Maplins!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from it works backwards -drives me mad :-( Admittedly I bought this on special offer to find a water vavle lost on a grass verge, but quetly hoped it would become a new hobby. It did find the water valve (well the metal cover) easily, however I expected it to be quiet and "squeal" when it detected something, unfortunately its "backwards" it squeals ALL THE TIME and goes quiet when it finds something, ok as a toy or random occasional use, but will drive you mad if used for extended periods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grandson thrilled Bought as a Christmas present. Grandson loves it. He's 12 and I wasn't too sure if it would be the right size for him, but it's ideal as a first metal detector. He was tracing pipes under the floor boards before taking to the beach with dad. He loves it. Glad I bought it and he'll have hours of fun especially when the weather gets better. Excellent buy.

How does this work the right way round as it makes noise all the time but stops whin it finds metal

Asked by: Gaggy
It's wrongly adjusted, Move tune control very slightly till sound stops, even if not then at zero. Then lift off ground and press red button to zero needle again. Actually sometimes a sound is good all the time, as different metals will change the tone in different ways. Practice with known metals, coins, rings, iron nails & etc, in plain sight to hear the differences in tone. Then when "in the field" you will recognise a metal from the tone !  Capich, Really if needle is not exactly at zero it does not matter, just important to see which direction it moves in. Anyway I got my detector cheaper yet, as second-hand item from an impatient person who was convinced (like many in here) that it was somehow faulty !

Hi, can I just confirm that this detector doesn't make noise all the time and then go quiet when it finds something. Someone suggested that is the case but then someone said that was a fault, could that be clarified please? Thanks!
