I had the Bounty Hunter Pioneer EX. I started this season off with it. I cannot believe that 3 1/2 months ago I was using this thing with no pinpointer whatsoever and was bringing in quite a bit of clad.

My best finds were a 1950 wheat cent and a no-date wheat cent. I found 2 junk rings, and a bunch of Tokens. It didn't have a ton of depth, but I got pretty good at pinpointing using the X method, then re-using the X method each time I lowered the sensitivity. I will say that the machine is excellent in the dry sand at the beach. It has a smallish 7inch coil that picks up small things in the sand really well. I would say it performed on par with my F2 at the beach in the dry sand.

Looking back I can't believe how I did so well with it. I am spoiled by the depth and smartfind screen of my Minelab, spoiled by my ProPointer.
