There are so many fantastic comments from happy users who have left E-Trac reviews, it is hard to find a bad word said against it. Many experienced metal detectorists regard it as the detector to have and wouldn’t change it. It is so sensitive and can find objects at a very deep level. This really is a great model.
Value For Money
This might sound odd but we think this is great value for money. Yes, it is expensive but you will only buy one metal detector once you have bought the E Trac. It is a truly versatile and powerful detector that caters for 99 percent of metal detectors needs. If you like to change your detector often then it’s not great value but if you want it to last then this is a great machine to buy.
If you are a beginner that wants to buy once and own a detector that will stay with you and last for many years then the Minelab E-Trac is the machine. It has four preset detecting modes that make it very easy to start detecting with one click. The four modes make it easy to use in different areas and once you are feeling confident you can start to work with some of the highly advanced settings that are on offer. It is expensive for a beginner machine but you really are buying a top notch metal detector.
The Advanced Detector
For the advanced treasure hunters out there this is a machine that won’t disappoint. It has cutting edge technology that will help with some great finds in the toughest conditions such as sea water, rivers, soil full of iron and minerals. This detector has it all especially in the general UK conditions.
The Minelab E Trac Feature
Below is a long list of great features that are packed into this detector. Have a run through, there is not much that Minelab have not covered!
Minelab FBS Technology
The Full Band Spectrum technology allows the E Trac to work on a set of frequencies from 1.5Khz right through to 100Khz. The operating system analyses the responses and interprets them to give a very accurate set of results from frequencies that go very deep to frequencies that are very sensitive to give you a full picture. Having this big a range of frequencies makes the set up truly versatile for many conditions that other detectors would struggle with.
Lightweight Waterproof 11 Inch Double D Coil
This is a great quality coil giving versatility by enabling the detector to go into a lot of challenging places. It delivers a sharp and accurate signal across the frequencies for pin point accuracy and depth. The waterproof element allows you to carry on searching in the sea or river, places where a lot of detectors won’t go.
Minelab X Change
This allows you to connect the Minelab E Trac to your computer via a USB connection to save and download your favourite settings and save them in case you need to go back to them. Handy if you change your settings a lot.
QuickMask And SmartFind
These bits of technology allow you to accurately set the discrimination levels based on conductivity and ferrous levels. You can also accept and reject based on these 2 indicators as well making your search much more effective.
Four Preset Detecting Settings
With these settings you can just click the detector on and start. Brilliant for those new to detecting or those that don’t go that often. The four presets are coin mode, high trash mode, beach mode and relic mode. This will cover most types of basic detecting to get you going.
Four User Modes
There are four user modes that can be set up and saved for different environment that you come across quite often. It saves all of the set up time when you go back to them. A real time saver.
Pin Point Mode
Pin point accurately your find and the size of it before you start digging down into the ground.
The threshold can be adjusted over a wide range to get absolute precision on the signals you are receiving helping to filter out the rubbish signals which will vary based on the ground you are searching.
Trash Density Settings
This setting allows you to tell the machine that there are a lot of signals you don’t want which will increase the sensitivity making it easy to sift through the unwanted objects.
E-Trac Review Conclusion
Well what can we say. This is a brilliant metal detector that is held in very high regard by the metal detecting community. It is very configurable and runs that latest technology to cope with some of the toughest terrains but also has some brilliant beginner click and go settings which will balance the machine in an instant so it is ready to use. If you are one of those people who really like to work on the settings you will be at home with the E Trac as it has a lot of settings to play with. It is an expensive metal detector but it is one of the best and will last a long, long time and get you some of the best finds you could imagine. A truly great metal detector for all and another fantastic metal detector from Minelab.
