Yet to buy my first detector and spent over 2 days now looking at reviews/videos and Amazon.
Not even sure if detecting is for me but looks fun!
I think most of detecting will be on the beach - realise capabilities in wet sand but seen both in action in the sort of conditions I'd expect. Narrowed choices down to 2 machines including the
Bounty Hunter Tracker IV
Looked at all the pros and cons and aware that the 2 I’m considering are quite different machines but anyone with experience of the Bounty Hunter that could comment would be helpful.
The Bounty Tracker's better build quality and simplicity looks good.
Thanks in advance.

Bounty Hunter Tracker IV have had since 2005 and still use occasionaly on dry sand or on inland areas for surface finds in grass.
Suitable for dry sand , not wet. Very accurate but lacks depth, probably around 6" on coins but bearing in mind most recent losses will be fairly shallow. Needed to upgrade to a machine with more depth, once I finally secured an inland permission,.
Hope this is of help,

I think I've settled on one - not sure if I'm allowed to mention the brand here - but appreciate the comment.
