Minelab Safari Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on April 14, 2014):
I purchased my Safari a bit over two years ago and have used it quite a bit. I am impressed with everything about it. Very easy to use out of the box, nice functions, display is clear and detection is accurate. I detect with it in the southwest and with the ground balance I have never had it chatter on me yet. Even on the automatic settings I have no problem finding coins 8" deep. Once you get an ear for the tones, you know when it hits on a good target. I hunt in trashy areas and have many times picked up the subtle tone of silver next to iron. Go slow and from different directions and you cannot lose. I did upgrade to a lithium ion battery which lasts longer than the AA batteries. Weight is balanced and I rarely tire out from swinging it.
