Metal Detector Reviews

Post by mrix » Fri Mar 18, 2011 6:17 am

Hello all, one of the most useful sections on this forum must be the metal Detector Reviews forum, unfortunately to date there are not so many reviews :( If you can find the time at some point it would be very useful for new members to the hobby if the more experienced detectorists could write a review of your brand / model of metal detector B-)
We are not really looking for highly in-depth professional type reviews but the real reviews from the real users own personal experiences with their machines :) B-)
A few basic guidelines are below to help.

1) Post reviews in the relevant reviews model forum.
2) Stay honest and post the good and the bad points you feel about your machine.
3) Please do not post a review until you have owned and used your machine for sometime.
4) you can make the review as details as you like and even include pictures if you wish to do so.
5) You can explain your settings, giving the type of soil and conditions you hunt on..

After a review has been posted it gets immediately locked.
This forum is purely for personal reviews and nothing else, if you wish to ask questions about various brands of metal detector please use the Metal Detectors forum

I have also added the reviews link to the Metal Detectors section of the main menu on the left or a direct link below

Big thanks all

There is real value in having the members post what they feel re their machines. When the machine comes out, there will be the usual TH or Searcher Product Review, done by some expert, all very readable but it does not tell us how the new machine will prove itself later on in the hands of the regular users and it is that important info and feedback which is really interesting to anyone thinking of buying it. The Deus has been out for over a year now and we have yet to have anyone posting a review on the pro's and con's. I know some mods have been done already, so there is always room for improvement! Comments such as - batteries become loose, coil twists on stubble, handle is too big/small/wrong shape, coil cable too long/heavy, control knobs not easy to reach, paintwork coming off, water getting in, too noisy/quiet, phone connection poor/excellent, cannot cope with iron/coke, gobbles it up, loves/hates tiny fragments and so on - the things we probably mutter to ourselves or our mates afterwards and which can be very useful to the members.
Don't worry about spelling, grammar or even getting things wrong, we can correct all that later on for you, no probs. Big thing right now is to get cracking on some reviews for everyone to read.
BTW it does not have to be a new machine, many members buy used off eBay and want to know what they are buying. Liam :))
