Bounty Hunter Quick Silver Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 20, 2008):
Why I bought the Bounty Hunter Quick Silver:
This is the first metal detector I have owned. I wanted to start out simple and inexpensive to see if I enjoyed the hobby. So far it's a lot of fun. I mainly go to school yards and parks looking for coins. In three hour long trips I have found around $8.00 in change. I haven't found any jewelry yet. I plan to take a trip to the beach soon and try to find some abandoned houses.
What I like about the Bounty Hunter Quick Silver:
I like the fact that this detector is really a two button setup (Discriminate and Sensitivity). This helps to make changes for depth and trash on the fly. Also the LCD screen is handy to see what the detector has found, and what you are discriminating.
What I don't like about the Bounty Hunter Quick Silver:
Now for the cons there are only three tones high, mid, and low.
My Plans for the detector:
Overall it's a great detector to get started with, and I would recommend it to anyone just getting started in the hobby. When I bought my Quick Silver it came with everything I needed to get started (trowel, carrying bag for the detector, and a waist pouch for my finds. All I had to do was put batteries in it and go. In fact if I when I get more consistent and I can justify a more expensive detector I plan to let my wife or daughter learn with this one or maybe keep it in the truck so I always have one on hand if I find a spot I can't resist.
