Bounty Hunter QD2GWP Quick Draw II Metal Detector with Pinpointer and Carry Bag

The Quick Draw II features auto and selective notch filters, which enable discrimination between different types of metals. This means that the detector can tell the difference between a quarter and a bottle cap, and can use the LCD digital display to relay this information to the operator. Discrimination provides a great advantage when working in areas with a lot of trash such as around picnic areas in parks where there may be a number of aluminum pull tabs buried. By adjusting the detector to ignore these items, the operator has the benefit of only being alerted to items that may be of value.

Bounty Hunter uses both an audible tone and a visual signal to alert the operator to buried objects that pass under the 8 inch search coil. There is a headphone jack that will allow the use of headphones when working in noisy areas, or in places where it might be better to make a little less noise.

Like much more expensive units, the Quick Draw II features an electronic touch pad control and LCD graphic display that make the unit easy to operate. The display reports the type of metal the object appears to be made of as well as the expected depth. While soil conditions can fool this technology on any metal detector, having the ability to sort this way is a lot better than not having it.

The single-piece aluminum shaft is lightweight, yet feels solid when swung.

Carry bag and electronic pinpointer are included in this package.

Bounty Hunter QSI Quick Silver Metal Detector

The BH QSI features automatic ground balance with BH’s Squelch-Tech technology. Ground balance is an important feature offered by better quality metal detectors. Natural conditions within all soils can throw off a metal detector by giving false signals when there is a high mineral content in the soil, or deadening actual signals that might otherwise indicate treasure. Ground balance allows the operator to adjust the metal detector’s circuitry to account for these differences in soil conditions. The problem is that soil conditions can change within a matter of feet and this can leave the operator readjusting the detector on a frequent basis. Bounty Hunter’s automatic adjustment means the operator can spend more time enjoying the hobby and less time turning knobs.

Audio feedback and a digital control panel with a 4-segment target identification allow the operator to pre-screen any finds prior to digging them.

This metal detector uses 2, 9 volt batteries which are easy to install, but are not included, so be sure to pick some up before your order arrives. The handle and shaft are made of aluminum and can be easily separated into shorter pieces for storage or transportation.

Bounty Hunter TRACKERIV/TK4-PL Tracker IV Metal Detector

I have only used this machine for a short while, but I have been quite pleased with the operation so far.

The Tracker IV offers automatic ground balancing, a feature that saves a lot of fussing with dials when compared to many low cost detectors. There is a 3 position switch on the right side of the control panel that changes the operation from all metal to a discrimination mode that rejects iron and steel and finally a tone mode than will provide different tones when passed over different metals.

When searching recently for a property corner in a trashy area, I really appreciated the discrimination mode. First I would sweep until I found something, and then I would switch discrimination on to eliminate iron. Since the property corner I was looking for was iron, if the metal detector still gave off a signal after being switched to discriminate, I knew the object could not be the iron corner I was looking for.

The shaft adjusts in length to accommodate most adults and the weight is negligible. Best of all the detector runs on just two 9 volt batteries instead of multiple battery-packs each filled with four to six double A’s. Fewer batteries means less cost and less that you have to carry out into the field in order to ensure your metal detector will continue to work.

Bounty Hunter BHJS Junior Metal Detector

The Bounty Hunter BHJS Junior metal detector is a child-sized version of an adult metal detector. Weighing less than 2 pounds, this locator is lightweight enough for almost any child and has an adjustable shaft length that is sized for a child’s smaller stature.

The BHJS has several features not found on other children’s locators like a discrimination control and an indicator meter to help judge target depth. These features make the BHJS easy to use and give children a chance to learn the mechanics of operating and caring for a more expensive metal detector while still enjoying the thrill of finding small treasures buried up to 5 inches deep and larger ones up to 3 feet deep.

The real benefit is that children can be introduced to Treasure Hunting without the need to operate Mom and Dad’s much more expensive locators. The BHJS is featured and sensitive enough to serve as a back-up or second detector too.
