Bounty Hunter 1st Texas Pilot

Pilot is a Real Money Machine when it comes to Locating Coins, from Small Dimes to Silver Dollars!

Bounty Hunter Pilot Search Coil

Kellyco is proud to introduce an all new addition to metal detecting – 1st Texas' Pilot metal detector with the new D-Tech 725 search coil. This new 1st Texas metal detector is a perfect mid-level machine that has the features of metal detectors costing hundreds of dollars more – it's built to "lead you to treasure!"

Very few detectors have an interchangeable search coil system, but the Pilot flies above the rest, providing more options than many other metal detectors in its price range. Each Pilot comes standard with a D-Tech 725 search coil that is highly sensitive to smaller treasures such as gold jewelry, diamond rings, and older coins, while still delivering deep search technology.

The 725 coil also boasts a hotter signal sent through the transmitter winding, which is guaranteed to give a clear signal even for coins buried on their edge! Plus, because the coil is completely waterproof, you can take this detector into the shallow surf and lake water! Other coil sizes are available in the accessory section of our website. Find small baby rings, wedding bands, ladies rings with precious stones and more!

Large, Easy-to-Read LCD Display Screen!

The Pilot features a large, easy-to-read LCD display screen to enhance your confidence while you're in the field; know when to dig and when to pass over those pesky pull-tabs! The internal micro-processor will continuously filter out unwanted trash targets, plus you have four discrimination segments that will digitally identify treasures such as gold, coins, silver, etc. Finding treasures could never be easier!

Pinpointing is a Snap!

Pinpointing is also a snap with the Pilot. No push buttons are in the way to be accidentally pushed – simply make an "X" pattern over the target you've detected and the built in pinpointer is Bull's Eye sharp, and will sound off! This allows you to find treasure quickly and easily.

No Headphones Needed!

No headphones are required with the built-in external loud speaker that features a three tone Audio Target Identification. A bass tone, mid-range tone and high tone will help you quickly know when to dig!

The best part of the 1st Texas Pilot is that it's built to last – let friends, family, and children borrow it: It's easy-to-use and can take anything! All stems are made from strong aircraft grade aluminum and the arm-rest is padded for comfort. With a five year warranty your concerns just disappear.

I've only used this unit a few times, however, the 1st time I used it in my back yard I found a set of keys I lost. Way cool. I also found what appeared to be a crack pipe when I was vacationing in Alamogordo NM (yikes!). I anticipate better finds in the future. I bought a different detector as well, but haven't used it yet. Yes I would recommend this product.

It basically just detects all metal. If you reject 1 of the four buttons you can miss out on something good. It is very loud and without volume control. After changing the batteries for the first time, it has been stuck on mute. Good news is it has a 5 year warranty and will detect reasonably deep.

Great little machine! I needed a spare machine to keep down in central Florida as I visit quite frequently. I have two Bounty Hunter Quick Draws so I know their machines are great. I took a ride to Kellyco to purchase, great place great staff. Well, first day out in Kissimmee park over $ 3.00 in change the discrimination works very well, only recommendation would be a volume control. This machine found coins over 6 inches in the Florida sand effortlessly. I basically love to coin shoot and over the years you would not believe what I have found... I went to a park that was so-called "hunted out"... ha ha. Well over the years I found at least a hundred coins and many items of silver.... happy treasure hunting...

I purchased my Pilot detector one week ago and so far I find it very user friendly. The first day out I took it in the backyard, set my discrimination to coins, and found that it works very well with $1.46 in newer coins. The second day out I took it to my fathers house, which was built in mid 1850's, set discrimination to coins again, and in about an hour and a half I came up with an Indian penny with a date of 1900. This detector is a awesome coin finder....I would recommend this detector to all newbies to the hobby....thank you Kellyco.

The Pilot is a good machine for the money. My wife wanted one that had basic controls and the Pilot is just that. It is lightweight and picks up metal well. The disc is more accurate than some other machines of the same cost. It does need a volume control though.

I wish that I would have gotten one for myself. I got the MPX and it was a waste of my time.

Bounty Hunter Pilot is a great deal.

Thanks again Kellyco.
