You’d like to get into metal detecting but aren’t sure which detector to go with?
You’ve searched high and low on all the detecting forums, and read countless opinions, reviews and case studies - most of them likely biased. Your Youtube homepage is littered with ‘Recently Watched’ videos of every type of detector review and unboxing. Does this sound like you? Some Tips: there’s no quicker way to become frustrated with the hobby than buying a complicated detector you don’t understand. Look for a beginner detector in the €175- €500 range. The type of hunting you plan on doing makes a major difference in what machine you buy, While most machines are designed as all around detectors for coin, jewelry, and relics, there are also specialty machines for different uses. If you plan to do most of your hunting in and around salt water, you’ll need a specialty machine. Note that you do NOT need a specialty machine if you’re hunting on the dry sand of a salt water beach. Some metal detectors are light as a feather while others are built like bricks and can be quite heavy. If you have elbow or shoulder problems or another ailment that limits physical activity, it’s recommended to get a lighter detector. Once you have narrowed your choices down to two or three detectors, watch them in action on YouTube. We typically recommend you stick to the known brands like Garrett, Teknetics, Makro and Nokta  for their quality and customer support Do you need advice: please email us: info@kooistra-detectors.com
