I have been hunting for nearly 8 years and found that you get what you pay for. The Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II machine is a great little machine for the very beginner even consider getting it for small children.
I started out with this machines and believe it or not did fairly well at local parks. I could find a pocket full of clad in no time...but the machine just couldn't get the depth I thought I need to make some older finds. I personally think the machine is price really well for the power, and if someones looking to maybe try their hand at the hobby. This is a easy and inexpensive way to get in fast. It's also a less expensive way to give your children a fun filled day at the park hunting money.
The detector is a tun on and go machine with a few adjustment like trash setting so your not out there digging pop tops all day and runs on a single 9voly battery pretty much all day no stop use. It's also really light weight so your arms not so fatigued at the end of the day. This machine will make plenty of kids really happy and who knows might even start them in hobby they will use for a life time. Great machine, great price, easy to use and simply a starter machine for anyone of all ages that wants to get outdoors for a little adventure. and fun with the whole family

I have been using my Bounty Hunter approximately three years and enjoy it A lot I bought it from Kellyco through the mail, and received great service from them.
The person I talked to on the phone was very courteous and helpful in selecting my metal detector. My new Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II arrived with clear instructions on how to set it up and how to use it.
I like the Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II for its ease of use and simple operating procedures.
The Quick Draw has simple to read indicators, it will tell you what size of coin you have found before you dig it up. It will also tell you if it is a pull tab or other metal object. I usually dig up every thing that I detect just to be safe. I have found coins and other metal objects up to a depth of nine inches. And have found that the readings have always been very accurate.
It uses batteries very sparingly and is very durable. I have left it in the trunk of my cars for long periods of time with no adverse effects. T
It is a tough durable simple to use detector. It is simple to use thus it would be a good pick for the first time detector to purchase. The quickdraw11 is very reasonably priced considering all the good quality that have been built into the detector. I would give the quickkdraw11 a four star rating based on its initial cost and the quality of the machine, also its ease of use. I would definitely recommend this detector to anyone especially a newbie purchasing A first detector.

I enjoy detecting old farmsteads and freshwater beaches with my Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II.
On the beaches, I have found lots of coins, no coins that were very old but I found two old world war two tent stakes that had been used for the army in military training on this particular beach.
On an old farmstead I have found some really cool stuff one of which is copper molding with some really artistic design that must have been the trim around a piece of furniture or possibly around a doorway. I found it at ten inches deep in hard packed soil outside the old doorway. I shined it up good and now I have it in my den. To think that the person who hung that copper trim up did so 100 to 150 years ago, is so gratifying to me. I am touching this piece of history. To wonder what that man might have dropped in his yard that I haven't found yet will keep me going back.
The Quick Draw is easy to tune and it’s basically a turn on and start searching. Its default is in the all metal mode so I leave it there most of the time. Sometimes I do use the Auto-notch button on the beach which blocks out lots of trash. It shows a depth gage from 0 to 10 inches which most of my finds have been in the 4 to 6 inch range.
I would recommend this metal detector to everyone from novice to pro and for the money you can’t go wrong. I am happy with it and haven't had any problems at all with it.
The Quick Draw II is a great metal detector for the money.

I am fairly new to metal detecting and drawn by the prospect of finding coins and relics I wanted to start with a cost effective model and after finding treasure eventually upgrade. I researched a few models and talked to a few seasoned vets and most said this was a great model to start with. The price range was great and the learning curve was very easy to adjust to. After a few quick trips out to heavily visited river edges and beaches, I felt like I was a seasoned pro with my Quick Draw II. I learned the distinguishing beeps and sounds and could easily adjust the discrimination levels of detection depending on "trash" areas, old work sites, homesteads, iron ore beds and more. I liked that the sounds were much different and easy to decipher what I may be hovering over.
It seemed so easy and fun. Soon my Dad joined me with a much pricier model for some quality time. While his $1300 model may have the digital display and fine tuning mechanisms to hone in and really detect what type of metal we are coming across, we always utilize my $200 Quick Draw II to pinpoint the location and bring in our find field much closer to the target. It’s quite amazing. On our trips our typical finds with this detector are coins and trash items, such as cans, bottle tops, tabs, and the like. But we have found quite a few coins, and recently found (2) 1854 dimes, and an 1853 quarter in an area that had been scoured by many detectors before. I enjoy this detector and its learning qualities for the hobby that we bought my brother the same model to learn with. Metal Detecting is a great family hobby that is rewarding!
