Minelab Safari Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on February 9, 2015):
I bought my Safari back in November. I read a lot of reviews that had people saying it takes a while to get used to this machine and many hated it until they got used to it and then they love it. This was not the case for me. This was only my second machine and I found when I took it out the first time that it was very easy to use and understand. Of course it will take me many more hours to understand all the little subtle things it is trying to tell me. This machine has amazing depth capability and is extremely sensitive so there are times when you will get the faintest little signal that you may be tempted to ignore but once you dig you realize that it was a dime 14" in the ground. So like I said, you really need to become very observant of what the machine is telling you, but once you get a good grasp you will be amazed at the capability of this machine. In my opinion this machine is every bit as good as the E-Trac but for only 2/3 of the price. I highly recommend this machine for anyone of any level of experience that wants amazing performance at an affordable price (relatively speaking).
Now I would like to give you a quick review on the service I got from Kellyco. This was my first time ordering from a metal detector company and considering I was planning to spend about $1300 with them I was a little apprehensive. I dealt with Blake Hattaway directly over the phone and I will tell you that it was a very smooth and comforting transaction. He was able to give me some excellent information about my machine and the hobby in general and he was very willing to do whatever it took to make sure I was getting the most for my money, that I was happy with my purchase and he has followed up with me several times since to make sure I am still happy with my machine. I am a Kellyco customer for life. They are just a great company period.
