    I may be alone on this one but...
    My first setup was a harbor freight 9 function and pin pointer.
    I spent under $50 for everything with a 25% coupon. I was willing to risk the $50 just in case it was something I wouldn't gravitate to.

    The HF 9 Function is a single tone discriminating machine. The depth is decent to mediocre. Overall, the machine paid for itself at least twice over and what's more important, it forced me to understand how to adjust a detector to make it work the way I wanted it too. It really made me want to learn more, and it was simple enough to keep me going.

    For such a small investment, I literally challenge anyone to find a better machine for double it's selling price.

    It's truly a great, basic machine.

    I guess if you're satisfied with surface finds and don't need any options or longevity, but, IMO, twice a piece of junk is still a piece of junk. The ones I've seen at the store are all made in China and have that cheap feel and look to them. In a modern urban park setting, I think most people would get frustrated trying to get them to find good targets over junk ones.
