This is the perfect metal detector for the beginner or less frequent user that wants a machine with good features but does not want to spend a fortune on a top end machine. There are two preset modes to get you up and running quickly and enough features to build your knowledge and confidence as you get more experienced.

If that is you then this is a great metal detector that will server your needs and more.
