The Fisher 1280x-8 is a all purpose underwater detector with a very reasonable price. It has a rugged housing and a collapsible pole. You can use it up to 250 feet depth. The controls itself can be hip mounted or even chest mounted when you use an optional harness. It is called the best fresh water detector available today but it could also be used in salt water. It is very easy to use, you basically turn it on and you can use it immediately thanks to its auto tuning features.
