Hello all,

Can anyone give advice on what a nine year old might use for a first detector?  He is by no means new to metal detecting and has used my White's GMT to hunt for meteorites since he was six years old.  So basically he does know how to swing a detector.  He has asked to hit the parks, schools and similar areas.

Any out there that won't break the bank but will still find Coins, rings etc?

Thanks                 Ironman

Garrett ACE 150.

It's an amazing machine and a heck of a value. I paid $137 for mine at Sports Authority using the free shipping and 10% off online coupon. I get a solid 6" depth out of it on coins and rings. I plan to upgrade to the larger coil for about 9" of depth. It doesn't have the pinpoint function like the 250, but I can still locate the object well without digging a large hole.

Hope this helps.

+1 on the Compadre. Will outclass any digital unit in the same price range. Simple, but very efficient : I found almost 700 coins on the beach and twice gold the very first two weeks I had it (I have more than 16.OOO hours detecting, so if I bought one, I knew what I was buying.)

HH,

   Thanks for the advice.  After talking to several friend as well as forum members, the choice will be a Tesoro Compadre.

Thanks every one for the time and the input!
