After receiving the E-TRAC in Feb. 09 and Andy's book, I found that with past knowledge of the hobby and help from members of Findmall.com and TreasureNet.com that this is truly a great detector. I wanted to wait and use the machine a few months before posting what I thought.

KellyCo was able to take care of all my questions and from past orders I know they will always be there after the sale for any help needed.

Anyone can get the detector and use the preset modes for hunting and can find treasure their 1st day out but I feel that unless you have someone to help you or if you have past use with an Explorer it is not for the beginner. You need time to learn the machine. If you are willing to take this time you will not regret buying this detector at all.

After about 30 or 40 hrs I soon found what it was telling me from the sounds and display but was finding coins and other CW relics the first day. It just got better as time went by. The control pad is easy to understand and navigate. The depth is great with the 11'' Pro coil. I also have the 12x15 SEF and 6'' Q2. Each of these coils served a purpose in different hunting areas and they all have made great finds for me.

I mostly hunt for coins and CW relics and find that the E-TRAC has done very well. In fact, it has almost paid for itself after just a few months of use.

In a yard that I've hunted with other machines and have had problems with nails (nulling), I found that the see through ability was true, finding a H.T&B. Manchester Confederate Eagle button worth $1115.00 the third month I had it not to include the coins, one of which was a 1835 Capped Bust (all mixed in with the nails and passed over by other machines, the E-trac still gave a good ID even in this trash).

If the multi sounds are too much go to FE 2tone (only dig your high tone that fall into the good ID #'s) and then change as you get more used to the detector.

If you do get the machine, you will not go wrong and I would highly recommend it. Just take the time to learn all it has to offer before you say it's no good.

This is one fantastic machine! I have been hunting since 1997 and have used other detectors including the Minelab Explorer. The E-trac is by far the best machine I have ever used. I was able to find a lot of wheat cents and several mercury dimes from hunted out parks. What I really love about the E-trac is it's ability to hunt in high trash and find valuable rings. I have never had luck finding gold jewelry on land and only found it in the water. This year in about 3 months I found 40 rings including 3 diamond rings. 2 valued at $1800 and $1500. I am only scratching the surface and will only get better as I learn how to use it.

I am new to the metal detecting hobby/trade. I read about all the metal detectors. I bought a MineLab ETRAC from KellyCo. There is a great page to compare on detectors on the KellyCo site and that is what I did. I made the purchase and off I went. I found 7 rings and a 2 pound coffee can of coins. I find that the more I use it the better I get. Hearing is the key to this detector after the first ring sound you will never forget the sound that ETRAC makes. I was behind others and found twice that they did.

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!
