Bounty Hunter Lone Star Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2008):
I have been detecting for approximately 4 years, and the Bounty Hunter Lone Star was my second detector. Given the time I have to spend detecting and the sites available, I chose a reasonable detector with nice features. I started out on playgrounds and raked in the coins and a few pieces of nice jewelry. At the time of purchase, this detector had features that other brands carried only on higher end units. I greatly appreciated the upgrade from the my previous detector. The controls are easy to manipulate and understand. With a little trial and error using the features and scanning technique, it was easy to learn when to dig and when to move on.
I like hunting relics and coins, and this detector works great. With a few distinguishing passes, you can determine jewelry from junk, and coins from cans. I have found some interesting settler sites and pieces from horse buggies. It is easy enough to use for a beginner. Yet has the features to make it desirable to an intermediate user. This detector has what it takes to keep your interest, and will not just gather dust. Plus if you choose to upgrade later, you will probably still want to keep this one around - for playing, practice and fun. It is also a durable unit with an adjustable shaft that would make a great gift for a new hunter. I picked up mine with a Kellyco package that included a nice bag. I have found this to be very useful in keeping the unit safe while traveling. It also has pockets and room for a few necessary tools and pouches for the finds.
I rate this Metal Detector a five for Fun, Features, and Finds!
