The top positive review was this one :
This was my first metal detector purchase and I am a novice.
The White Surfmaster came recommended by two different people I know who have each been metal detecting for over 30 years.
The unit is well made.....but a bit heavy.
It will give your arm a work-out.
It DOES pick up EVERYTHING....from tiny metal pieces to pieces of pipe.
I've picked up things down to about 20 inches (even in black sand beaches).
After viewing many videos on YouTube I can see where a Vertical grip, placed upright above where the palm rest is might be a good addition.
This would give certain arm muscles a rest and exercise other ones.
The top critical review was the following:
This review is about how I received my machine, not about the quality of the machine itself, although it seems well built. I haven't tried it out yet, but if it works great, I will happily change my review. I was real excited to get my detector, but my excitement turned to annoyance. I am annoyed because I obviously received someone else's return. Everything in the box was already open and just kind of thrown in the box loosely. When spending $800 I expect a brand new machine, not someone else's used / returned machine.
