Minelab Safari Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on June 26, 2009):
This is a great metal detector! I bought it for its ability to detect platinum and the depth at which it can do that, and it certainly can. I lost my platinum wedding band that has seven diamonds in it five years ago in about 18" of water and 24" of mud. When I received my Safari, I practiced around the house for a while until I gained an understanding for the sounds it produces. I went out to the site where I lost my ring in 2004 and found it in a few hours. It was in 18-20" deep in mixed clay soil and the Safari had no trouble detecting it; it is a heavy ring though. (I practiced on a typical platinum light-weight band and it would detect it to ~11".) Amazing!
Thanks to Kellyco for their great help! Without their expert advice and masterful product knowledge this would never have come to fruition. 5 PLATINUM STARS FOR SAFARI!
