Bounty Hunter Tracker IV Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 29, 2016):
- I realized my wedding ring was missing yesterday. It comes off easily so I have a tendency to take it off whenever I am doing anything where it might fall off - but I could not find it in any of my usual places that I put it. I was absolutely sick with the thought that it was lost. The only thing I had done all day where it could possibly have come off without me noticing was pulling the hose around to add some water to the pool. I had crawled around on my hands and knees for 2 hours looking through all the grass to find it with no luck. I went out and bought a Tracker IV - came home - put it together - ran through the tests in the book with coins and went out to look for it. I have never used a metal detector before in my life. At first, I had a few hits - but not where I thought I could have lost it. Then I tried the discriminator settings. I tested it with a couple other rings to see that they made the lower tone beep (more of a brrrp sound). Went back out - found one spot with that tone. My wife bent down, dug around for about 20 seconds and said "Here it is!" I could not be more happy. I have no idea how this product stacks up against other metal detectors - but I can say this: If you lost something important (and it is metal) go out and get yourself one of these. I found my ring and now I have a new hobby!
