The Quest Scuba Tector Pro follows on the success of the Quest Scuba Tector. Designed for detectorists who push through boundaries and redefine underwater detecting, the Scuba Tector Pro is the most versatile, portable underwater metal detectors Quest has ever made.
The Pro model features a foldable, interchangeable search coil, unique dual-hinge joint, extendable handle, larger battery capacity and a powerful pulse induction system. All these features make the Scuba Tector Pro the ultimate detector for beach or underwater use.
Three different modes -- sound, vibration and sound + vibration -- mean you'll be alerted to signals, whether you're on the beach or underwater.
There are three different modes, allowing you to adjust the detector's sensitivity.
Using the dual-hinge joint and extendable handle, you can use the detector fully unfolded and compacted for underwater searching. When you transition to the beach, you can semi fold the detector and use the adaptor to attach a rod to the detector.
Compared to the original Scuba Tector, the STP's coil is two times larger, but takes up half the space when folded up. This makes it easier to travel with, without sacrificing any coverage while detecting.
The detector comes witha a USB-C cable so you can recharge the battery, when coupled with a USB wall charger.

Review by Jane on March 15, 2021On opening the compact box, the first thing you see is a smart looking orange and black coloured folded mini detector. I dug down and found some additional surprises in the box, none of which seem to have been listed on any website (including the Quest site), apart from the included USB-C cable to charge the battery. Surprises included: a coil cover - an extendable coiled lanyard to secure the detector to a diving belt – a second lanyard to attach to your wrist for beach and shallow water detecting – a bag containing two 'O' seals and plastic pieces, (most of which I have yet to figure out what they are for) – a plastic adaptor which screws on to the top of the detector handle into which you can fit a rod – a nice Quest bag for carrying the detector – Quest stickers, along with their 2020 catalogue and a card indicating the serial number of the detector for warranty purposes. No manual is included apart from a piece of cardboard which forms part of the packaging of the box which has illustrative diagrams with arrows indicating how to turn it on, the boost and mode button and recharge point.
I immediately charged the battery to full capacity (lasts 14 hours), and made myself a rod out of a cast-off hiking trekking pole as this lady of 62 prefers not to be bent double when searching! I attached the rod to the detector with the plastic adaptor but the rod wiggled a bit as it was not the same diameter as the adaptor. One thing that is great is that as the trekking pole is metal, I could still use the vibrate mode rather than the audible alarm. I then headed to the local freshwater streams.
The machine is superb, very versatile and so much fun to use! The orange handle is 9 inches long and the oblong coil is 9.75 inches by 3.50 inches wide. On my very first search in the stream it alerted me to something near a rock (a large old bolt). It can access small crevices in rocks and is very easy to flip around and maneuver. I tested it on a gold ring which it found at a depth of 4 inches. The buzzer alert is not loud enough especially when searching near rushing water which is where the vibrate alert comes in so well. Of course it is a small light machine and when folded up (so neat!), fits easily into a backpack.
A few points to consider:
• After 2 hours of constant detecting in cold melted-snow water, the rod adaptor broke. Quest does not have the adaptor listed as an accessory (in fact the accessory list on their website is blank). Kellyco stepped in though and saved the day (they really are awesome).
• You will need to make your own rod as none are available yet from Quest.
• No “interchangeable search coil” is listed or available.
• No manual is included or available.
HOWEVER, this mini detector is definitely worth buying and worth waiting for the items mentioned above from Quest. Have fun!

Q: When will the larger coil be available for the scuba tector pro? That is the one thing keeping me from buying this detector. I plan on using it as my primary travel detector…A: I'm sorry, but I do not have any information on when the larger coil will be released.

Q: If I get this, can you tell me what size monopole I need? Also, if the monopole adaptor breaks, can you sell me another one?A: With the supplied stem adapter, you can attach any 21-23mm stem, whereby you'll determine the length yourself. We do not carry the adapter by itself, you would need to contact Quest for warranty issues or repairs.

Q: Hi, I am looking at the scuba tector pro and want to know how deep (in the sand) it can detect? Vs a Garrett sea hunter mkii Thanks so much!A: The Garrett Seahunter Mark II will provide better depth than the Scuba Tector Pro. There is no short answer on depth, but the Seahunter has a larger coil which is one of the factors.
