    HELP what is the best Metal detectorfor 200$

    hi i have bin hunting for 2y now with a 44$ harbor freight 9 function metal detector and it will find coins down 6 ". on my 2 hunt with this MD I found a civil war button 8" down . but that was just dumb luck . I like to look for old coins . i want something that can look a little deeper .i feel like i am missing out on a lot of deep old coins . I have 200 $ and I was thinking of getting a Teknetics Alpha . Garrett ACE 250 or a Fisher F2. but i would like to know what you all think i should get . I have a ? for you all ...does the kHz matter the Teknetics Alpha is 7.8 kHz . the Garrett ACE 250 is 6.5kHz and the Fisher F2 is 5.9kHz . what is the kHz. does it go deeper with more kHz or can you swing it faster . thank you for your help here is a pick of the button just for the heck of it Click image for larger version.

    With your $200 limit you are limiting yourself even if you go used. Compadre is good detector, if you want more options you have to spend few more dollars. Add another $150 to your budget and you open up a lot more choices, especially used.

    Frequencies in a metal detector are referred to in kHz (kilo hertz) which is the number of times a signal is transmitted into the ground as received back per second. The lower the detector's frequency, the deeper it will penetrate. However, its sensitivity to smaller targets may be reduced. On the other hand, the higher the detector's frequency, the higher its sensitivity to even the smallest targets, but it may not penetrate as deeply.

    Generally, gold detectors operate at a higher frequency for locating small gold nuggets. Coin, relic and treasure hunting detectors operate at lower frequencies for greater depth penetration.

    With all due respect my friend but if I were you I would start to listen to more experienced members. If you actually think your detector can find coins at 6" without any problems than keep it and save the money, keep your detector and go out and find stuff. I have a v3i that is worth 50 times the one you have and depending on the ground situations sometimes I can just go down 6-8 inches. On other grounds it can do 11" but not much more than that. The Tesoro compadre is 10 times a better detector than the one you have, as any mayor brand detector will be. No offense but comparing the HF to almost any detector of a mayor brand is just unrealistic, it just shows the lack of experience.
    My advise go to a metal detector shop, also take your detector, and let them show you why some detectors cost more than others.

    norbyx sorry if i upset you . I am listen to more experienced members. that's y im here but it seem as if i am being misunderstood . at the top of this post i said I am looking for a MD that can go deeper then 6 " . i understand it all depends on ground situations . but lets say the ground situation is good the Tesoro Compadre can go down 6" MAX when looking for coins .so i dont care if it is 1000 times better then my md. what i want to know is if there is a md in the 200$ rang that can go DEEPER THEN 6" IN the best ground situation.

    The transmit frequency has little to do with depth, only better operation of its settings for Disc or Id or conductivity. The deepest detectors are Pulse Induction ones and they lack any good disc and you would wear yourself out retrieving deep trash or the smallest pieces of iron rust. All the entry level detectors you mention don't have an adjustable ground balance and are almost toys when compared to the more expensive MD's. Having a larger coil helps if you can get only one item under it at a time, but larger coils "see" more minerals and limit max depth. Still there are plenty of good targets shallower than six inches, you just need to over lap your sweeps with a concentric coil.Name:  233.jpg

    Figured out yes you definitely got me figured out. you're a rocket scientist. what are you doing here. all I wanna know is there hey detector that's around 200 dollars and look lower than 6 inches. some guys need to set the sensitivity a little lower. if I went to a store and ask the guy hey do you have a metal detector that can look deeper than 6 inches. and then he goes to sell me a metal detector that can only look in the ground 6 inches. I would not be a happy customer. I thought this would be quite simple but apparently not
