    Titan Metal detectors?????

    QUestions:
    Frist, who makes Titan? Bounty Hunter?
    Secondly,I have a friend interested in MDing but doesn't know what MD to get. I already told her about ACE 250 hands down. Great MD, but I know she wants to have more information about whats out there besides the ACe 250. SHe doesn't want to spend lots of money.

    WHat do you suggest? She saw ads for Titan and I wonder about them as well. So far I have hear not so good things about the Titan 1000XD. Personally I hopes she decides on the Ace.

    Re: Titan Metal detectors?????

    Robert......steer her clear of the Titan line..........they are nothing more than Bounty Hunter detectors in disguise, trust me, with the exception that you can get a Bounty Hunter Discovery really cheap on Ebay and elsewhere........take a look......

    Discovery 1100=Titan 1000
    Discovery 2200=Titan 2000
    Discovery 3300=Titan 3000

    Also look at the photos of each's control panel in online photos, radio shack, etc. They are the same, same button placement, except the faceplate colors and writing are different.

    You can get a Discovery 1100 for $50 on Ebay. I sold mine to Mastereagle22's daugther for around $30. I also have a Discovery 2200 sitting in my house that I got for $75 on Craig's list.......you can get Bounty Hunters for cheap........or you can get ripped off big time by buying a Titan. I also have an ACE 250 and it is a monster of a machine for the price........I have an Explorer XS that I just got and I'm still hunting with my 250. Found a buffalo and rosie last week. You will not be failed by a 250.

    PS The Discovery line is good in my opinion........just don't pay $400 for a titan 3000 when you can buy the same machine on Ebay, a Discovery 3300 for like $150. You get the point.

    Best,
    Ricardo

    Re: Titan Metal detectors?????

    These none major brand detectors would be lucky to find a coin under a newspaper in my opinion. Truefully, they can locate coins in real dirt, but most of the units don't have good quality circuits or materials.

    Have her research online for Whites, Garrett, Tesoro and Minelab. Look at Tony's website at www.tcmetaldetectors.com

    Re: Titan Metal detectors?????

    Thanks.
    I found some more information about Titan. My god they really are junk arn't they!
    I din't know Bounty Hunter made them for Kellyco.
    I've steered my friend toward the Ace250 and to WHites metal detectors, primarily the Prizm III,IV and V. The M6 is a bit high priced. I feel comfortable in suggesting to my friend to think about Garretts or Whites, The ACE because of its quality and price, and Whites solely for the quality. The price seems to be about what other MDs are going for.

    Thanks again.

    Don't feel too bad, I bought a Seben (for $250) before I knew what I was doing. On a good day, it will pick up my truck.
    I noticed that no-one really utilizes all the signature space provided, so I figured to be REALLY original I would make up the longest signature that I could and probably just leave it as one big run on sentence because all that punctuation just takes up way too much space-HH.

    Re: Titan Metal detectors?????

    i must admit before the wife bought one for herself i didnt think much of them, and while i still think they are overpriced i have to say that the thing will go deeper then my minelab x70 , we have tested it with coins in the ground, and she can pinpoint almost right on about everytime, she likes it very much but me i'm just impressed with the depth

    Re: Titan Metal detectors?????

    Well, I have to say that I have had no problems with my Titan 2000. But I did buy it used, so I didn't pay the high price for it. I've used it for over a year and I've found coins up to 10" deep. I know 2 people with ACE 250's that aren't getting that deep. But hey, to each his own. I will say from experience that there is nothing that the ACE can find that the Titan can't. That's a fact. I am thinking of upgrading though in the near future. I'm ready to play with the big boys, but I'll keep the Titan as a good back up.
