my son bought a coinmaster pro and just had to get used to it. He has been having good luck and getting depth. He would like a better one, but is satisfied with his.

What happens with these new Coinmaster & Prizm units is, at least in my soil, the ID bounces around alot, but mostly in 2 adjacent IDs, & the IDs go lower when coins are deeper. So if everything below zinc is rejected, a 5" deep dime might be silent. Some of the more expensive White's locked onto 4" deep dimes, & on rare occasions, deeper. I got an ID lock on 4" deep dime on Ace 250. But what really impressed me was the Garrett AT Pro locking onto dime range & it really was a dime, and 7" deep in somewhat mineralized & very dry ground, in a park hunted 100s of times. Best wishes, George (MN)

I'm picking up a coinmaster today for $110. I know they aren't the best but I figured why not for that price. Will make for a good backup/extra detector just in case. Local guy who has used his twice is getting rid of his.

I use a Coinmaster (not even the pro) and so far I've been happy with it. For $110 I don't think you can go wrong even if you are just buying it for a backup or buddy machine.

Oh, and pulltabs tend to show as nickels. God I hate pulltabs.

I got one. And it works OK, but still must be used with a pinpointer.
Only gripe I have is that it maybe is too sensitive. I'm getting tired of digging the metal band on the ends of pencils.<sigh>

I took mine out in the yard just a short while ago to just give it a quick test with a penny. I was pretty impressed by it. Ive been using a Tejon the past 4 years so it was nice to see an actual display. I may run it side by side with my Tejon in the backyard in the coming days. I live on what used to be a Civil War battlefield, and have found a few bullets over the past few years, but mainly just construction debris. I'll be interested to see how the 'junk' registers on the Coinmaster.

I dig any target that dings reliably in a criss-cross pattern. The Coinmaster is not a bad machine, but it is what it is. It does discriminate, sometimes well, other times not so much but it WILL put you on targets. I've dug a lot of junk, and after seeing someone use a Garrett pinpointer, I'd say the pinpointer is a must. I can't imagine using even 4-digit (price wise) detector without that pinpointer.
