I purchased this item for my 6-year-old son to use when he goes to the beach. He has used it several times and has found lots of coins and cans. No buried treasure yet, but he will keep trying. It is super fun to take this with you to the beach and see what you can find.
I like this product works well for finding gold underwater
It took me a couple tries to understand how this detector responds to different metals and depths but once i sorted out the behavior, it was a breeze to use. It’s very easy to use and calibrate for different types of metals. The sensitivity dial makes fine tuning simple as well. It's as simple as one would wish for. I have found 100s of items so far. It's still working great. But for anyone having trouble, practice at home and understand all the features prior to venturing out. It should work just fine unless defective.
