New to the forum as I'm new to detecting.
I'm based in Thailand and received my Scuba Tector from the factory in China a few days ago.
Unseasonably rainy conditions have prevented me diving my local waterfall to test the unit. So will post back on my impressions once the visibility gets a bit better.
The rain stopped at last and visibility in my local waterfall has cleared up nicely.
I took the Scuba Tector yesterday for its 1st proper outing.
Very impressed, getting good depth through the sandy gravel, about 4-5 inches which gets me down to the bedrock in most places anyway.
The vibration isn't as strong as on the Vibra Tector but still adequate. Volume is good except when I'm actually under the waterfall directly, couldn't hear anything..
Being a PI unit, I have to investigate every bleep but not too much trash yesterday. Lots of bottle tops, couple spoons and a fork. Some hot rocks but not overly frustrating.
Finds were plentiful, sunglasses, motorbike key (no motorbike), some goggles and about 40 coins, a bracelet and a marble
I will upload some photos, reset my phone to lower file size now, so should be acceptable on this site ?
Tomorrow I think I will take it for a saltwater test at the beach. There's a few busy hotels at my local where I'm hoping for some gold in the surf !!!
Overall, for the price I think it's a good little unit. Time will tell on durability but I'm sure it will hold up. Great to throw in your bag for a beach/river outing or holiday abroad.
Need it to be flat otherwise it's a nightmare to search properly and hold position.
Maybe easier with a weight belt on
I'll stick to the waterfalls for now until we get some glassy seas..
The scuba detector really does find a lot, super sensitive...
Still waiting to find my 1st gold though !!
This machine is a beauty
