Best I have used to date

Review by Joe S on November 04, 2013

I have like many others started this hobby with a low or mid range detector and worked my way up as I got comfortable and saw others with better equipment walk behind me and turn up stuff my detector went right over without a peep. So I have learned when u have a good spot and think it is hunted out if you upgrade to go back and check again and normally turn up a couple more things. I have had whites mxt and a fisher f75 newest model and recently wanted to try the etrac due to more readings actually hitting the ground and I have gone back to places that have been hunted out by the lower line detectors and I have been with both my others and turned up more old silver than I had found in places that had not been hunted by many others. This goes way deeper and seems to be able to even find stuff that wasn't even deep that so many others went over. Once you get your settings and learn it you will not be digging trash unless u just want to be sure but after u dig that tab u wil say I knew it was a tab. Other ones I have thought trash and dug a coin they were not good at singling out like the etrac. It does a lot so read and read more about it but once it is learned I will not want another detector and no longer feel your walking over stuff that someone with a better detector will find. You can't go wrong with this one.

I have purchased and resold many high end detectors in the past to decide which one was for me. I've been detecting for 40 years and I find that most detectors are pretty good for the job that they're designed to do. The Minelab E-trac was purchased rather recently and I am happy with it and will keep it but there are a couple of things I don't like about it. Let me first start with the positive: I like the way it's designed and built. It is very sleek and pretty well balanced. You can tell that some thought went into the design. It's fairly simple to operate right out of the box. After much experimentation and utilization of other user’s ideas, I settled on the basic coin program with auto sensitivity +2 or +3 as my normal program. I like to set it for "conduct" and "recover deep" as well as "multi tone". For pinpointing I like the "sizing" feature so you can tell if the target is large like a can or small like a coin. I'm one to constantly change settings on things so this detector doesn't tempt me too much to change a lot. It goes deep enough for me with the stock coil but not noticeably deeper than other high end brands. The relatively minor things I don't like are first of all, the time it takes to charge the battery...18hours. I believe it should be an overnight charge and not more. The second thing is the noise's great but I think 30 seconds is too long to stand there waiting for it...I feel kinda stupid with people looking on and saying "what's he doing"? The third thing is the sounds of the targets. No matter what settings I use they're still not crisp like on other detectors unless the target is very shallow then its better. These are all very minor annoyances but the fourth thing I don't like is for me, the worst annoyance. The system used on the screen to ID the target to me is not user friendly. Sure, once you've used the detector long enough you can say ok, a quarter is about "12-47" on the number system and about "here" on the screen.

After extensive research on metal detectors which included type, price and potiential reliable customer service, I decided on purchasing an E-Trac from Kellyco.

Instead of placing my order online, I chose to call instead due a few questions I needed answered in making my final decision. A sales rep, Frank, took my call and was very courteous, informative and went above and beyond making sure I knew of all the freebies, warranties and bonuses of my purchase. The confirmation email was very helpful in making sure addresses were correct and in tracking my purchase through UPS. I received my E-Trac along with the free accessories included, five days later and was very pleased with Kellyco\'s attention to service, products, and customer satisfaction. Being a first time buyer of a metal detector, I am impressed by the E-Trac performance and quality of services I received from Kellyco. I am convinced I made the best possible purchase and chose the best company in doing so. Thank you Kellyco. I look forward to doing business with you in the future.
Sincerely, Brad

I live in Ohio and I mostly hunt for old coins. I purchased the Minelab Etrac in the spring of 2009 and I started by going back over the good spots I had searched to death with my old ($900.00) detector. I started by just turning it on and using the Coins setting. The first thing I noticed was that the Etrac was much more stable and quieter than my old detector. I started by digging everything and in no time at all I was finding wheat cents I had missed and soon silver coins too. I was very impressed that I was finding older coins deeper that I could with my old detector with no real experience with Etrac yet. In 2009, I found 247 silver coins and well over 1000 wheat cents, most were found in local "hunted out" parks. I find that I go to some places now and don't find clad or many surface targets but I do find DEEP coins everyone else missed. I also love how you can change the sounds on Etrac so that silver targets really sing for you. The only bad thing I have found about Etrac is that you will be digging much deeper holes.

This is absolutely one of the best metal detectors ever made! My decision to buy this Minelab metal detector was made by researching a few metal detector review sites like Kellyco. All the reviews I read were right on the money!

I have been detecting for a long time but this metal detector makes me feel like I am hitting completely new sites once again even though many have been hunted to death!
