    So on islands that have black sand beaches and hot rocks the size of baseballs its worthless likes a 2 box VLF or 808 i guess with all the hype they forgot to warn you .....To all companies do your tests in Florida it might help your sales (scams)

    An average VLF's depth ends at around 0,5m, the really good ones can go down to 1m and some best ones dies out between 1 and 2m depth - in the soil ofcourse, not in the air. No exception seen so fare. But the magnetometer sensor may go much further than that (for iron and other feromagnetic materials). It may not detect a screw at 14m , but a burried submarine most certenly. So officialy, the advetrisment doesn't lie, it's just not telling the inire truth...

    These deep treasure stories always intrigue me. The chance of someone burying a treasure that deep is extremely remote. Finding one buried that deep is even more unlikely, and even if you did, who would want to dig that deep on a hunch? Are you going to use a backhoe? Pull an Oak Island adventure and start drilling test holes hoping to pull up something definitive without severely damaging it? Spend millions doing it with the likely result being a dry hole?

    I remember the "deeper" fetish fewer in my naighborhood some 10 years ago or so... it's not how deep one is willing to dig - which usually extends down to 0,5m max. - but how deep is one's detector able to go.... i've seen this with cars before, it's unlikley to be able to drive the Ferrari 300 km/h on a regular road, but one still wants it.

    Not only did they forget to warn me... They made blatantly false claims about the units capabilities. I was even more of a noob at the time and believed everything. "PERFECT METAL DISCRIMINATION" ... "THE DEEPEST PENETRATING DETECTOR IN THE WORLD" ... "IDENTIFY DEPTH AND TYPE OF METAL" ... All totally false. This was actually the argument to Amazon when I was having trouble getting my money back. Its a little harder to get a full $4000 refund. You have to justify it much more. But for this unit it was easy... false advertising. Everyone at Amazon agreed.

    The reason I was curious about the Makro Deephunter is because the only metal detector distributor in the Philippines is always pushing it as his best unit. That guy has a lot of experience because he also sells treasure site surveying services in the Philippines and he stays booked. I think hes probably a hitter because he has some very expensive equipment, but who knows. Now I'm beginning to believe hes probably pushing the Deephunter because of the mark-up on the unit. Its strange because Nokta is the same company as Makro and people really adore some of those machines. I don't know how they get away with selling such poor designs on the Makro side.

    I thought maybe Makro was like KIA. Entered the market with garbage and built their way up to decent cars. Guess not.

    Bingo. If you look at the history of found-caches, you don't see these insane depths. I've recovered several for "next of kin" over the years. And in each case, just a foot or two tops. Why is there any need to bury deeper ? It's equally as "hidden", as long as the top is covered and fluffed up. Burying it deeper does not hide-it-better, eh ?

    And as anyone who's bottle dug old outhouse pits knows: It's back-breaking work to go down even 6 ft. by hand shoveling. So you'd have to ask yourself, if you're the one burying a treasure: "Why?" What's the use/purpose ?? And if you look at stories of past caches found (either by md'rs, or by const. workers by accident, etc...) there is not these insane depths that they turned up at.

    Yet, sure as heck, folks come on to T'net inquiring about machines that can go 3 to 6 meters deep (10 ft. to 20 ft. deep). And are convinced that treasures, of necessity, are that deep. And the bigger the treasure, the deeper it must be. That's the immediate moment I smell a ghost-story telephone game legend in full swing.
