Detector Pro Headhunter Pirate Metal Detector
Detector Pro's Latest Easy-to-Use, Lightweight Metal Detector
Hunt Anywhere: Land, Beach and Surf. Hunt Anytime, Rain or Shine!
Kellyco is proud to welcome Detector Pro as a new supplier of quality metal detectors that have found acceptance worldwide. Gary Storm, the President of Detector Pro, first developed a relationship with Kellyco earlier this year when he built our most popular high-quality headphones - the Accusound Pro. Gary has been designing, developing and selling quality metal detectors for his company, Detector Pro, for 11 years - and Kellyco is excited to feature our first of Gary's extensive and successful product line.
The Headhunter Pirate metal detector is Detector Pro's latest easy-to-use, lightweight metal detector, featuring a 2.4 kHz quartz crystal controlled operating frequency that makes it a great all-purpose metal detector for land, mountains,beach and surf-wading!
The Pirate features an 8" durable, waterproof search coil. Detector Pro has made it "MegaDEPTH," heavy-duty to use on all terrains, plus negative buoyancy to keep it firmly under the water - not trying to float away while you're searching the surf and rugged enough to use on all types of ground.
A non-metallic Isolator with Nylon fasteners securely connects the cable from the search coil to the headphones while two Velcro cable anchors keep it in place at the top and bottom of the shaft. The shaft is completely adjustable - allowing for lengths of 43" to 53" at the touch of a quick spring-button. It also breaks down into three pieces for easy transportation and assembly, and features a comfortable foam hand grip with a padded arm cup for support.
Why Didn't Anyone Think Of This Before?
Imagine... taking all the electronics found in bigger, bolder, heavier control housings and miniaturizing them to fit comfortably in soft, padded ear cups. Now you have the same powerful electronics flowing through the search coil without the heavy added weight of a control box!
Miniaturizing-reducing size and weight is already successfully being done on cell phones now the size of a small business card. iPods no larger than a playing card now enable you to watch movies, TV, and more. Calculators (adding machines) went from five to ten pound desk top monsters to palm size with ten times the speed and accuracy of the heavier models these are only a few examples of miniaturizing.
Now the same reduction technology is available in quality high tech metal detectors from Detector Pro. Lighter-easier to use-powerful-without the bulky look and feel of today's standard metal detectors. Detector Pro does for the user what no other detector has done.
Now, You Get an Added Bonus...
Headphones are the number one recommended accessory for all metal detectors regardless of the make or model. Headphones block out noise and allow you to hear the deeper, more valuable treasures in the ground. With Detector Pro you do not need to spend an additional $50.00 to $100.00 for a set of quality head phones, they are all ready included as an added bonus.
Adjustable, padded headphones allow you to control the volume and discrimination with two knobs on the side. Miniaturized circuitry is built into the water-resistant headphones in a unique design to maximize performance. Two 9Volt batteries are all you need to power the Pirate and they can be easily installed in the inside of the headphone muff, tucked away for protection from the outdoors. Not only are these headphones packed with technology, they're also comfortable and lightweight. Polymer muffs with full-ear surround soft cushions encase your ears and allow you to hear the tiniest sound, while the discrimination control eliminates most trash items!
Summary: The most attractive feature of the Pirate is its easy-to-use, family-friendly user interface miniaturized and built into the water-resistant headphones. Breaking it down and taking it on a trip is so easy to do that it practically begs to join the family on a trip to the beach or the mountains! And the Pirate is water resistant, so feel free to wade into the surf with the coil and lower shaft in your search for treasure!

I purchased the DetectorPro Headhunter Pirate new from Kellyco and found four rings with it in three and a half trips.
One ring was really great, and it alone probably paid for the machine. It was a man's heavy size 10 gold (10k) ring with 9 facet-cut diamonds. The machine was working fine on the fourth trip out, when all of a sudden it went crazy, chattering. No shock or water caused this. It was completely dry.
I know of a couple others that did the same thing. The DetectorPro has a good service department, and they replaced my unit! Now, the Pirate has an excellent discrimination system, and it is as close to perfect as you will find. The preset sensitivity is also near perfect for my freshwater locations. If you get it near a target, it will let you know. This is the easiest machine I've ever used. I've been digging for close to 30 years. I just hope it doesn't give any more trouble.

I'm not sure which we have. We brought it down the shore a few years ago. I know it is probably no good but we love combing the beach at sunset. It is such a great hobby. It is very easy to get hooked on! The kids love it! We haven't really found anything valuable, but, for me the value is in the hours of enjoyment we get from it. It is so exciting to hear the tiny beeping and thinking that we are going to unearth something fantastic. It could happen!

The DetectorPro Headhunter Pirate is not a detector that I personally own, but it was borrowed from a friend when I went to visit in Myrtle Beach. The detector worked great, but I didn't know what I was doing or where to start searching for my treasure. I was hoping that if I win this contest, I could win my own detector and go searching. I have always been a scavenger at heart, looking for coins, old things long lost and forgotten and I think it takes a special person to like this typle of hobby. It also helps if you have friends that like to do the same thing, but it can be a satisfying hobby all by your lonesome too.
My first day on the beach, I only found junk but later that night, the bunch of us went to an outdoor seafood restaurant that had a bar and volleyball court outside...it was late and the place was almost empty..I got an idea to go scan the sand in the volleyball pit (with the manager's permission of course) and I found a bracelet and an earring; the manager said to keep the stuff but I left my name and phone number just in case someone reported something missing.
It was such a rush just to uncover something but now I just want my own detector so I can be on the move searching where ever I go. I can only imagine the findings after a big storm, Wow!

The DetectorPro Headhunter Pirate Metal Detector has been great for me and my family. I give it five out of five possible gold coins as a rating! This is the perfect detector for the beginner (or experienced user,) who wants a fun and relaxing experience that can be shared with the whole family.
I enjoy beach combing after a storm, and let me tell you this is the perfect machine for me. It weighs less than 4 lbs., so it's not too heavy to walk along the beach with. I also have 3 kids who have to play with my toys on top of theirs, so this works great for the rest of my family.
Its design is comfortable enough to last for hours, and I don't have to change hands as much as with heavier versions. It works great on the sand as well as walking through the surf. I have never had the battery run out on me even over a long week-end. It's affordable and lightweight enough to get you hooked on the hunt without breaking your back, or the bank.
We live in Florida and follow the beaches on both coasts. After major storms we usually hunt around the surf. The Pirate is light and easy to pack, which really helps when packing space is already at a premium in our travel plans. We get a lot of questions while we're out, and everyone we meet is impressed with its size and weight. Most people expect more heft, which just wouldn't work for me. If I'm going to be out for more than an hour (which is easy to do when you get wrapped up in your hunting, and lose track of time) then I need something lightweight and easy to use. We could not be happier with our Pirate, and highly recommend it.
