    Underwater Metal Detector, model 3080?? Anyone know who makes this one?

    Found this one on eBay and looked under search and found the following information except who makes it.? Photo looks a little like a Fisher but maybe its a Bounty Hunter.? Anyone know ?

    ? Treasure Hunter Underwater Metal Detector, model 3080 is newest, consumer-oriented, and most powerful underwater metal detector. First appearance on the market! Released in June, 2004!

    With this metal detector, using a 10" Search Coil, you can hunt for coins, relics, jewelry, gold, and silver just about anywhere. Search the beaches! Explore the shoreline! You don't have to worry about your detector getting wet anymore. You can go even under the water! Maximum depth is about 33 feet (10 meters).

    You'll have a huge advantage before other treasure hunters who just can't enter into the water because they don't have this kind of metal detector! It means less competition for you!

    Diving in salt water? No problem! The 3080 metal detector can operate in these conditions too!

    Requires 6 AA batteries (not included).

    Don't miss this detector! Other brand name underwater metal detectors, like Fisher or MineLab, cost more than a $1000.00! You do the math.

    Re: Underwater Metal Detector, model 3080?? Anyone know who makes this one?

    I wouldn't pay much for it, and I doubt it is really much good. The cheapo makers in China and those other countrys, are sharp and can almost copy anything. So it looks like a Fisher coil, but that is too easy to copy, the box is plastic whatever, the depth rating is odd, the frequency is just common old VLF, and anything else mentioned is not new technology. I would bet it is a China knockoff. They have 20 other models for land already, might as well get the claws to the waterproof line also. I may be wrong, but JMHO.
    Ok, I just went to the site and looked again, the seller has several other models also, all are cheapos with the nice features such as led readouts, lots of plastic on arm cuffs etc. I guess if you paid $50 or less, it 'might' be worth it.

    Bottom Line when buying a metal detector, stick with the Brand Names.? I'm sure this will help the 'Newbies' from making a costly mistake.

    Yeah I made the mistake of getting a Radioshack used detector..not bad on clad but not very much depth.....then it just messed up one day...wonder how well it was treated before I got it?

    Now it's Tesoro all the way

    I tried Tesore Pirannha and didn't think it was too good. Then went to Pulse Power pulse inductions, Beachscan, Deep Star, Goldquest, now have the Aquastar11, nothing better, but they aren't cheap.
