Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on April 12, 2008):
I enjoy detecting old farmsteads and freshwater beaches with my Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II. On the beaches, I have found lots of coins, no coins that were very old but I found two old World War Two tent stakes that had been used for the army in military training on this particular beach.
On an old farmstead I have found some really cool stuff, one of which is copper molding with some really artistic design that must have been the trim around a piece of furniture or possibly around a doorway. I found it at ten inches deep in hard packed soil outside the old doorway. I shined it up good and now I have it in my den. To think that the person who hung that copper trim up did so 100 to 150 years ago, is so gratifying to me. I am touching this piece of history. To wonder what that man might have dropped in his yard that I haven't found yet will keep me going back.
The Quick Draw is easy to tune and it’s basically a turn on and start searching. Its default is in the all metal mode so I leave it there most of the time. Sometimes I do use the Auto-Notch button on the beach which blocks out lots of trash. It shows a depth gauge from 0 to 10 inches which most of my finds have been in the 4 to 6 inch range. I would recommend this metal detector to everyone from novice to pro and for the money you can’t go wrong. I am happy with it and haven't had any problems at all with it. The Quick Draw II is a great metal detector for the money.
