Rated 1 out of 5 by from Maybe ok for dry sand. Took this detecting with me. Started to bend after a short while digging in a ploughed field. Maybe ok in dry sand but nothing else. Waste of a tenner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after first use I took it out to a field and dug for about 20 minutes and it bent and I had to give up detecting for the day.
