Metal Detecting Vacation
I have never used it but I know if it as a pre equinox era (slower) single frequency detector. I’m sure it would be fine in the dry but there are more capable detectors in the wet. And if others are using those more capable detectors on the same beach that puts you at a disadvantage.
I kinda figured you would say that , I own this one and have heard the same but was hoping you would give your opinion. Well I guess I've got some saving up to do.
