Bought this Bounty Hunter Junior T.I.D. Metal Detector for my grandson's 9th birthday. He was delighted. He is just starting out on his metal detecting journey. After reading reviews from several different models, I chose this one. Perfect for a beginner, especially one at his age. He facetimes me from Tennessee when he has found something interesting. He is really enjoying his new found hobby!. This model is sturdy and not too expensive. Was easy to handle for a child. Thanks Bounty Hunter!
The top critical review was the following:
Save your money and purchase a real metal detector. This is a toy. I purchased one for my 6 year old son and we've tried using it several times with little success. It is very difficult to use and won't detect coins unless they are very near the surface of the ground and perfectly centered under the search coil. I called Bounty Hunter customer service and explained how unhappy we were with the product and asked if they'd allow us to trade up to a better unit. The customer service rep was going to check with her supervisor and get back to me. That was a week ago. I just ordered a Garrett ACE 200 which I should have ordered in the first place. It's made in the USA and we can't wait to try it. I've had Garrett units in the past and they're top notch! Bounty Hunter.....YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE!
