Good entry level

Post by Roman Benji » Sun Aug 13, 2017 9:58 pm

I'm really happy with my 150 ace, going by what I've found,,
I usually set to jewellery and mid to high sensitivity. It's not amazing at discriminating against soft drink cans, modern bullet shells and a few others but overall, it's a good first timer.
6 months in and I'm ready for an upgrade.

I bought a chinese detector (Intey LCD), it's pretty decent and finds things just fine, but I just get that nagging doubt that I'm missing things through poor recovery speed, and/or depth limitations.

So I'm in same position... the four I'm looking at are...

Quest Q40
Rutus Alter 71
Garrett AT Pro
Makro Racer 2

Hoping to have one of them by end of Aug...

I agree,for an entry level machine it ticks all the boxes,i started with the 150 and it found me some history.I even started using it again this week to negotiate the rape stubble with the smaller coil ,although 5 yrs of no use seems to have done it no good as it went through a new set of batteries in 2 hrs,cd ::g
Never wish this day gone, as this day can never be replaced

i've got one intey lcd aswell and they work great on wet and saturated sand and found several coins on the beach with it.

tho i hate the rod as its too wobbly...

I've not tried mine on the beach yet, not too close to one, but will give it a go should I get the opportunity.
