Metal detectorists are always on the lookout for more gear. Just because we already have one or more detectors doesn’t mean we ever stop looking for upgrades or detectors that offer different features than the ones we already have.
The Mega Scan Pro 2018 might be different and high-powered enough for you to consider adding to your bag of metal detecting tricks.
If the name sounds familiar, it’s because the Mega Scan Pro 2018 by Orient Technology Group is an upgrade of an earlier machine, which as you probably guessed by now, was called the Mega Scan Pro. Continue reading →
The Intey metal detector is a good option for beginning detectorists who don’t want to shell out a lot of money to get an introduction to the world of metal detecting. For a small investment, Intey gives you a decent entry-level machine that will acquaint you with the basics of metal detecting.
What It Offers
The Intey detector offers two modes for you to use – all metal and discrimination mode. As the name implies, the all metal mode will find every type of metal that passes underneath your metal detector.
It will alert you with a beep every time, whether that metal is gold, silver, an aluminum can, or a worthless nail.
If you turn on the discrimination mode, however, it can help you weed out less desirable signals that you might not want, like iron.Continue reading →
Being a multipurpose metal detector, the Whites Coinmaster is something that you will find very useful for a lot of things – from rings to jewelry to coins and many others. But as the name says, it is most likely the best thing to use when hunting for coins.
When it comes to the maximum depth of detecting metals, the Whites Coinmaster can go for as much as 8 inches, which is the average if compared to a lot of similar devices. It is also quite the lightweight metal detector at only 2.5 pounds, compared to other brands.
Its weight is not too heavy but not too light. However, it only has 8 target ID segments so it might not be that precise compared to similar metal detectors. It has a 3 tone distinction that allows you to detect and distinguish different kinds of metals.
It’s every detectorist’s dream – you want to find the motherlode, the biggest cache the world has even seen. In reality, most of us won’t find that elusive cache, but it doesn’t mean we should stop trying.
That’s the beauty of metal detecting – any day might be the day you find something amazing.
If you want to find a cache, but you have no idea where to begin, here are some pointers to get you on your way. Continue reading →
Want to see a bunch of detectorists lose their minds from overwhelming excitement? All you have to do is sit back and watch when a company releases a new metal detector. This summer’s biggest release generating buzz in the metal detecting world is the Garrett AT Max.

Garrett is known as one of the heavy hitters in the metal detecting field so when they unveil a new machine, people take notice.
If you’re a fan of detectors that incorporate the latest and greatest technology, you may want to check out the AT Max.
What Features Does The AT Max Have?
The AT Max has built-in Z-Lynk wireless technology that drastically cuts back on the delay many detectors have when you use them. When you’re waving your ordinary detector around, you’ll hear a beep after you’ve passed over the target. Then you take your detector and try to zero in on the target.
With the AT Max however, you’ll hear the beeps from your target when you’re still right over top of it. That will cut down on search time and the situations some detectorists have where they have to expand their plug if they are off an inch or two away from where their target really is.

If you’re a detectorist who lives near a coast, you’re lucky. You have access to some of the greatest places to metal detect.
Beaches are an amazing place to find coins and rings that people have dropped, but getting into the water to hunt can offer even greater finds.
You don’t have to suit up with scuba gear to find quality targets in the water – although you certainly can if you want to. There are several affordable detectors that can be submerged up to 100 feet.
But if you’re not comfortable going too deep, you can slap on some snorkel gear and stay in shallow water. Even at that depth you have the potential to find modern-day treasures or some long-submerged shipwreck treasure. Continue reading →
All valuable or historically significant metal detecting finds are great, but there’s something special about the prospect of finding coins from a shipwreck or locating old pirate booty. That’s the Holy Grail of metal detecting for many detectorists.
