Check Out The Deteknix Scuba Tector!

If you’re a fan of metal detecting underwater and you want to go deep while you’re down there, the Detenix Scuba Tector might be an option for you.

It might look like a spatula, but it’s actually a powerful tool to have in your arsenal while detecting.

This metal detector can be submerged up to 200 feet underwater.

It has a rechargeable battery, and when it’s fully charged, it provides 10 hours of continuous use. That’s longer than you can dive anyway.

So you can take your dive and still have plenty of time left for searching shallow ground when snorkeling.

Let’s look at some of its best features.

Taking Your Metal Detecting Hunt Under Water!

I spent a mind-boggling number of hunts carefully sifting through the dirt in my holes for minutes on end before I’d eventually find the little piece of metal that looked just like every other clump of dirt I had encountered. It dulled my passion for detecting for a few months because I felt like I was bad at it. I wasn’t – I just wasn’t properly equipped. Continue reading
