Being new at this I didn't want to spend a whole lot of money on a metal detector that I wouldn't use. I had an old Garrett that was about 20 years old at best. I had dug relics with it over the years but wanted to upgrade. When I was given some back pay from work, I took a percentage of it and splurged. It was what I was looking for at the price I wanted to pay at the time.

Not being very experienced at detecting I really don't know how to rate what I have. I do know that it is easy to use and that I have dug relics every time I go out. I haven't used the discrimination mode or ground leveling because I want to dig everything I run across including iron.

Being new at this, I didn’t want to spend a whole lot of money on a metal detector that I wouldn’t use. I had an old Garrett that was about twenty years old at best. I had dug relics with it over the years but wanted to upgrade. When I was given some back pay from work, I took a percentage of it and splurged on the Bounty Hunter Land Ranger. It was what I was looking for at the price I wanted to pay at the time.

The more I get into this and the more I interact with other detectors, the name Whites keeps coming up. There must be a reason and as soon as I know enough to know the difference, I want to check one out. Right now, spending that kind of money might be a waste for two reasons. One, I may not stick with it. Two, I really don’t know what I’m doing; therefore I don’t know what I really need or want.

But since the name Whites seems to keep coming up, it appears to me to be the industry standard. I know this isn’t much of a review in the traditional sense but it seems to me that there is a reason something is called the Cadillac of metal detectors. To me it shows quality, great service and reliability. Otherwise the word would get out and people would steer clear of the brand name.

Well, the word is out. The word is Whites is the industry standard and the mark that all other metal detectors are judged by.

I do not know much about different metal detectors, only tried one type. I have been on hunts with my friend a few times and enjoyed the hunt. Found a few coins and jewelry pieces on the beach. Would like to have my own detector so my husband and I could go shopping for beach bouty. My friend took care of the detector, so I do not know much about it, I basically was along for the ride.

I'm new to the treasure hunting field and after extensive research I chose the Bounty Hunter Land Ranger. I chose it mainly for its ease of use; just turn it on and go!

I love it because it caters to beginners and experts. I especially love that it’s totally digital with automatic discrimination and lets you know exactly what you're looking for with target discrimination settings.

Another thing I love about it is its target depth reading, to let you know how deep the item you've detected is. Just to test the accuracy of this detector, I buried two silver dollars in a hole about five feet deep and it found them - no problem!

On depth, it shows an inch or two short of the actual depth. I'd say that speaks for itself of the capabilities of this unit. It has a wonderful feel in the hand and is very light in weight. I've taken this unit to the beach and had very good results with it. It also does well with saltwater discrimination when combing the shoreline for lost coins and jewelry. Needless to say, I am very happy with this unit and hope to get many years of use with it. I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking to get into detecting!
