Find Yours with Metal Detectors
Perhaps it’s the allure of finding valuable metals, coins, jewelry and historical artifacts like we see on TV. Maybe it’s related to the rise in gold prices. Whatever the reason, metal detectors are once again quite popular and a favorite family activity, especially between grandparents and grandkids.
The most popular brand of metal detectors found at Dunham’s Sports is the Bounty Hunter line, including the Tracker IV model. It can detect coins that are seven inches deep in the ground and features three modes of operation and two-tone audio discrimination. The Tracker IV model can detect all types of metal or you can set it for a desired type. The sensitivity level control lets you determine how sensitive the detection should be and at what ground depth you wish to search.
For those who take their metal detecting more seriously, there’s the Bounty Hunter Discovery 1100. It also detects coins up to seven inches deep in the ground and features a three-segment LCD display, three-tone audio discrimination and a seven-inch open-frame, waterproof search coil for searching in shallow waters.
Newly available at Dunham’s Sports is the New Master Edition Metal Detector Kit from Barska. It features three operation modes to distinguish between various metals, such as identifying whether the item being picked up by the detector is gold or aluminum.
“You can ask the New Master Edition Metal Detector to disregard nails and other non-valuable items and focus on the more valuable stuff,” Ryan Hills of Barska said.
The New Master Edition Metal Detector also features an auto tune, which lets you tune your detector quickly for accuracy, a stem that can be adjusted from 13 inches to 19 inches (to accommodate the user’s height and reach) and an adjustable arm rest for greater comfort.
“If you’re going camping, metal detecting is something nice to do while you’re out in the woods. Metal detectors fold down pretty small, so they’re easy to transport,” Hills added.
All of the metal detectors found at Dunham’s Sports carry limited manufacturers’ warranties and all are equipped to be used with available headphones that are not limited to metal detecting. The Bounty Hunter headphones, for example, deliver true stereo sound, swivel ear cups and padded earphones for optimal comfort. In addition to enabling you to enjoy your metal detecting excursion in private, these headphones can be used to listen to your favorite music, since they feature both ¼-inch and -inch plugs.
Care for your metal detector is minimal: Wipe down the head and replace the batteries when needed and you’re all set for hours of treasure hunting. Good luck!
