sorry outback,WHAT A CRAP DETECTOR,weee woooo beeep waaau ping peep,sorry its going back to where it came from, I knew I should of stayed with the good old American fisher,how the hell can any one find any thing with that crap(sorry minelab not impressed)go back to the drawing bord,discrim,ground balance,sensitivity,its a bloody f....ng joke.I paid 394pounds sterling for that crap,ok I did manage to find a 2euro coin,AND THAT WAS ON THE SURFACE,a blind man could of found that,its a realy great detector if you collect bottel caps, foil and all sorts of crap the discrimination is a disaster, o yea,great detector for scrap dealers,plus this constant humming in the back round,the signal on the 2euro coin(that was a surface find)was realy looooong,thought I had found a bronze age axe,as for depth thats a real joke...minelab never again,,,Mikek. ps the pics look good and thats it(except for the 394pound bill...minus the 2euro)

Hello mike . Sorry to hear about Minelab . But it makes sense now because they were just sold in March 2008 for $70.5 million By Codan Group . So they will add as many new models as they can , whether they work or not , just to get back the $70.5 million as fast as possible . Reminds of First Texas here in USA who owns Bounty Hunter and now Teknetics and Fisher . 60 different models and 10 are pretty good and most of the good ones are the Fishers . So 50 different models can be purchased to sit in your Closet for a few years and then sold on E-Bay for an Outrageous Price !! . Sorry to hear that mike , I hope you recoup your losses . Tesoro makes some good machines like Outback said !!
Regards........Eugene
