Garrett Sea Hunter Mark II Metal Detector

Garrett Sea Hunter Mark II Metal Detector

Product Review (submitted on March 19, 2008):
I will start off by saying I'm new to this machine but I like what I see so far. When I started metal detecting I wanted a water machine so I purchased the Fisher 1280x and quickly discovered it was not that great for salt water hunting. I love it in fresh water and dry sand but in salt water it gave off too many false signals. So I traded the Fisher in for a Garrett Sea Hunter Mark II. I've only had this machine for a few months and it has been pretty cold here in New Jersey so I only got it out once. The control box is pretty easy to use. This is my first Pulse Induction machine so there is definitely going to be a learning curve. Although I did not find any gold or silver the first time out I was able to find some clad so I know it works.

I did play around with the trash elimination knob but I did not see a big difference. I've heard that it is really hard to get any discrimination with a pulse machine so I was not really surprised by this. Although it could be more from being a new user of the unit then because of the unit it self. I like the fact that you can use three different set ups since the control box attached to the shaft, a hip mount option or the scuba diving set up with a short shaft. I really look forward to getting out there a few more times and seeing what this machine can really do. Since I'm still learning this machine I would not recommend it at this point but it does seem like a pretty flexible machine depending on what your water hunting needs are.
