  • I haven’t been out with a metal detector for a long time and bought this as my first unit in a long time! The performance is very good overall. It will pick any thing up in all metal mode however if you adjust its discrimination setting you can make it avoid tin foil and pull rings. I found when trying to discriminate just for gold it would lose its sensitivity level however, having it set half way, gave a very good overall performance. In the two days of use i found £5, 20 old coins and a silver ring. So am very happy with its performance. It comes with a discrimination control, volume, and sensitivity however it does not ID your finds. The ear phone socket is on its back which gets in the way when in use, this would be better if it was on its front. Build quality fills a little weak but don’t let that put you off as its ok for the job and money you spend. Overall its a good unit very sharp in operation, I had a guy come over to me, talking about his unit and how much it cost him £££££ and when we compered its performance on a pound coin the l45Bh was better!!

  • So far in 2 trips we have recovered several bottle caps and £1.50 but the best thing is we also recovered a lady's engagement ring. A good value fun tool, simple to use. Not at all querky, does what it says. Delivered really quickly too. We are having great fun with it.

  • Got this metal detector today and thought they had made a mistake and sent me a kids toy. Its construction is weak and has a wobble(up and down)at the joint,the screw tighten extending shaft for the coil is shoddy and is hard to tighten enough to keep it from falling off without turning it enough to turn the coil in the wrong direction and ontop of that when it arrived it was faulty and the sound cancels out in the first 3millo seconds and just leaves you with a clicking noise over a metal object! and worse still,any movement that is brisk makes the detector alert you of a detection and the needle flys around uncontrollably and unreadably which makes this model unusable in this state! fair enough that faults occur but even in a working condition this model is as flimsy as a piece of curtain rail(curtain rail being better) i know its cheap but for the price id say its overpriced but maplin still have a good response system and returns policy so i cannot fault them its just the makers of this cracker toy, oh and as i took it out the box i could already hear a loose object rattling around. sorry maplins but im being honest and i hope you sort this manufacturer out positive point is its weight thats it but seeing the construction im not suprised its light

  • It did exactly what I wanted it to do, ie locate a drain cover under a gravel drive. It was easy to assemble and easy to operate and cheaper than hiring one for a weekend. The Grandchildren think its great and love to go "treasure hunting"

    This looks quite large and bulky, possibly difficult for a 4 year old to carry and use. Is it suitable for this age group?
