    Metal detecting beginner

    I want to get into general metal detecting. Regular ground and saltwater. This will be a hobby. I am willing to spend up to $300 for a bundle. Is there a certain brand or something I need to look for in particular? I would appreciate any help I could get.

    1st - I noticed this was your very first post - so, Welcome Aboard misimatch84! You didn't list your state (or country) in your profile. So, you might consider jumping over to Sub-Forum: Select Your Area.... for information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to your state (or country).
    2nd - Whatever you finally decide on - please consider buying one from one of 's Supporting Vendors.

    The Vanquish would certainly meet your needs. The Nokta Makro Simplex is also another possibility. Whatever you decide, happy hunting!

    A bundle can be found thru several sources, and you should get an individual offering a used detector, here in this forum, I'm sure,
    but (Suggestion) watch videos and learn what these machines can do - so, get a near, middle-of-line machine that does a lot for you - giving you the chance to tweak the settings some, and get more performance out of it...!
    You will find this to be a VERY Addictive Hobby, so watch out, "you'll never be the same"....!
    Good Luck and Happy Hunting...!
    Stick With It - It's not *IF* you'll find the good stuff , but WHEN!
