Minelab Safari Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on February 25, 2014):
- Hello All :) I have been totally impressed with the Safari ease of use for such a collection of highly useful features engineered into the Safari. Note : The weather was cold even here close to New Orleans. I only got out 3 times for 3 to 4 hours each time. The unit holds up very well in my field tests which involved having a friend hide a few objects and me seeking them out between 2 to 12 inches deep in a predetermined 3 foot by 3 foot grid. Again, Kellyco service and support rocks as I had a few questions about threshold and saving programs and Blake had the EASY answers. The Safari is extremely sensitive and as different as night and day compared to the antique unit I once had that probably never got much below 5 inches on a quarter. I adjusted the Safari's background hum. Threshold down to a very minimum level as the factory setting was way too loud for my ears and probably wasted some batteries. The head phones Kellyco supplied with the unit worked perfectly well in a noise infested area close to a street traffic area :) All in all after a bit of experience with the FBS compared to my old 1970' to 80's s vintage UNIT this Safari is much more sensitive.The Safari has just enough bells and whistles but is still (I think) very EASY to set up if you're using most of the newer detectors made in the last 10 years it may be really EASY. I called Minelab one time to find a book about the Safari that may no longer be printed and they too were very helpful in directing me to the source authors webpage and were also able to give me a lead on a club. Problem is it seems that a separate author only prints the Safari specific book in limited distributions at this time? Hopefully there will be increasing amounts of YouTube Videos and others using this great detector. All in all I am very happy I got the Safari deal here with Kellyco. Blake and the Kellyco Team sure helped make the customer experience a FUN, SIMPLE and EASY task :) Thanks Kellyco Team!
