If it works, that is certainly a great price. Sounds almost "too good to be true". They are a great detector.

I just picked it up. It seems to work great. I even got the original hard case from whites. Now i just have to learn how to use it correctly. It's totaly different from my Cibola.

MY dad has had one for years and has probably set for 5 years or more . it seems to do a good job of detecting however I find it a little complicated and a bit on the heavy side.

weight is it,s only drawback. The 4 hunting modes are great for all applications. The pin-pointing is spot on. Depth is great. Can be easily adapted to a hip-mount as-well.
