It is a fairly good guarantee that once you catch the treasure hunting fever there is no turning back. Those that start out with the basic models of metal detectors will soon be thinking of ways to move up in the world of detectors. Finding deep metals that yield large treasure caches is something that all enthusiasts dream about.
For those who are looking to search deeper it is imperative to select a deep seeking metal detector. If you are looking to begin searching for gold and other precious metals that are deeper than one-meter you will need a two box style metal detector.
One of the best models available in the two box metal detector series is the Makro Jeohunter 3D Dual System. This metal detector has outstanding metal discrimination and separates metals into four categories which are gold, non-ferrous, ferrous and steel. For the first time there is a metal detector that gives complete visual analysis of objects before having to dig. The Makro Jeohunter 3D Dual System makes it possible to find precious metals at extreme depths.
Okay…Minelab has done it. They’ve officially grabbed my attention with the new CTX 3030! Waterproof, on-board GPS, rugged and possibly more powerful than the legendary E-Trac? or at least so it’s been said… I would love to write up a review on this beast if I can get my hands on one! I’ve been talking with Minelab Marketing (USA) to see what we can work out.

XP DEUS Metal Detector Review
XP DEUS is the World’s First Wireless Metal Detector. Why is this such a big deal? Read on, fellow metal detectorists!
It is the hottest metal detector in Europe and NOW the XP DEUS is available in North America.
There are SO MANY features that make the XP DEUS Wireless Metal Detector the most exceptional available, it’s difficult to list them in order of importance. Perhaps the most stand-out quality about this detector is its level of SIMPLICITY, while offering futuristic state-of-the-art functionality. Anyone can grab & go with this wireless metal detector and search for any type of treasure. From coins and relics, to gold prospecting and more, all you need is the XP DEUS—it’s the total package!
This looks like the manual tweakers dream machine! Lots and lots of pots! One of my most enjoyable analog detectors was the relic-loving Nautilus DMC 2b. A true depth monster that, when set up correctly, is very hard to beat for pulling brass and lead from extreme depths.
This new Blisstool LTC64X v3 seems to be redefining the notions of what a VLF detector can do. I haven’t played with one yet, so everything is hearsay and speculation at this point…however, the videos are impressive!
Do you have a case of “Yellow Fever”? With gold prices consistently high, more and more people are out searching for that wondrous yellow metal. Gold has always captured the imagination of mankind. Read more about gold and its history HERE (link to wikipedia). Fisher (of metal detecting fame) recently released several gold prospecting/panning kits. Now, I’m first to admit it, I’m a TOTAL NOVICE when it comes to gold panning! However, like most who first venture into prospecting, I’ve done a ton of research about how to “get started”. Youtube can be a wonderful thing for learning panning techniques! Below, you will find my review of Fisher’s new Gold Prospecting Kits and my experiences as a new guy trying to learn a new art… (Click “read more” to…well, read more!)
-Detectorstuff member Ian Pettigrew (AKA draaiorgel) has written up a great new users guide with tips and helpful information on the Garrett Ace 250! Many thanks to Ian for his contribution….
The Ace 250 is an ideal beginner’s machine especially if you know absolutely nothing about metal detecting. (Just like me when I first started)
I had read on many MD forums about what a fabulous machine it was and
the price was right.
