How many could say that............... I would say not many with so many that have to send there new detectors back for repairs......... More than once more than twice. and then again,...thumper said:gotta add my 2 cents in......im gettin ready to by a new machine, but i've been swinging a bh 2000 for several yrs.. bought it at a flea market for 35 bux i think it was....i have been using this machine for at least 8 yrs or so.....i have found over 1000 dollars in clad and several dollars in silver and quite a few rings...plus a few thinks i wont tell about....lol..the things i have found have been mostly under 5 inches deep...i've missed targets i'm sure....but it has been a great machine to me..never had a problem in all these years with the machine at all....how many can say that
That is the truth........... Those coins do not care what you paid for your detector they will still sound off when that coil goes over them no matter what you paid for your detector......... But a lot think that the more you pay for a detector the better it is...... And that is just not true........Olegrumpy said:Buried coins and treasure do not know how much you paid for your metal detector. I found over 6.000 curent coins with my Compadre in 14 months of time.
So keep on the good job, you BH owners. They are great units, and we might stand for a surprise when FTP/BH will renew their current models.
Wow! That detector isn't the 505 that's a version of the tracker. That's a low end bounty hunter and I think he's swinging too fast. I have the 505 and the tracker and I think the 505 is a very big improvement over the tracker. 505 has ground balance and it has 3 tones. Also has the notch and auto notch. No doubt my 505 will hit deeper targets then my tracker. By 2-4 inches on quarter. I can hit quarter at 10-12 inches with 505 and 6-8 with tracker.
This should give a good idea why most people avoid Bounty Hunters.

....Woof , i was talking about the lower end ..Garretts , Fishers , Whites , Tesoros ,Teks , & minelabs.. ...... I do not put bounty hunter with them , I always thought of bounty hunter as a childs detectorWell, sometimes ya just let 'em slide, and other times they irritate ya just enough to post and get it set straight.
Cmon, Keppy, the return rate on Bounty Hunter metal detectors is less than 1%, and has been ever since I redesigned 'em 8-9 years ago! In the particular case of the TK4, return rate was already so low that there was no reason for me to redesign it.
Back in the 80's, BH used to be a respected trademark. Then the collapse of the "old Teknetics", Turner bought 'em out, and through shockingly bad manufacturing practices they turned BH into junk. Ruined the reputation of the machines when in fact the machines were pretty good designs for the time, being traceable to George Payne. When Tom bought BH from the Turners, he immediately started using 20th century manufacturing procedures which got the return rate below 2% even before I showed up. Of course nowadays we're using 21st century manufacturing methods.
BH, Teknetics, Fisher: nowadays same engineers, same people building them under the same roof.
Wow,, you only use "top name brand detectors " We are really impressed... Thanks for sharing .You and I have a lot in common, I only use KOHLER® Toilets -....Woof , i was talking about the lower end ..Garretts , Fishers , Whites , Tesoros ,Teks , & minelabs.. ......
