You think so? I mean, what are the odds a million other people haven't already checked the same place. I don't know enough about this hobby or trade or whatever you want to call it, but don't know how these are effective unless it can do more than what the average person's metal detection can do.

I just need to find the rods driven into the ground to mark my property line. I have no idea what metal they are made of, but they look like rebar. Steel maybe? The top of the rod should be within inches of the surface, and I have a general idea (within a few feet) of where to look but I really don't want to start digg...

I bought the Tracker IV a few years ago, and it's surprising how well it works. I haven't found anything significant yet, but it is a pretty sensitive little finder!

I know at the beach the sand is constantly shifting and things are washing ashore. Here in my hometown, there's a fairly large battlesite. Pretty sure people are still lifting bullets, buttons, buckles, etc. out of the ground.

I would recommend taking the batteries out after use. I use mine about 30 minutes, shut it off and the next day the batteries are dead. could be just my unit but I don't have another one to compare it to.

These would work for that...probably not much more.

Just an FYI...bounty hunters are pretty much toys. This is one of those things where the more you spend the happier you will be. Sure you can find metal with these, but after digging up 100 bottle caps and pull tabs, 60 rusty nails and a penny you will be fairly discouraged. If you are serious about it check out minelab or whites. I am still not a Garrett fan, but some people have OK luck with them.

The bounty hunters are ok... They're cheap and actually can some what ID metals. For their price they're good.

Whites, Tesoro, and Minelab are better, but cost a lot more.

I'd recommend a used Tesoro compadre for about $100. It's more than most will ever need... If you choose to discriminate it can, better than the bounty hunters. I found I can better size the target with the Tesoros...Serious hunters will dig almost everything anyways.

And yes, most places have been searched 20x over. It's still fun to search yards and the rare place that hasn't been combed over...

If you buy one and you are a redneck odds are good you'll get your own reality show.

Having had a detector for the last 15 years and hunting with people that used all brands and models. I can't say enough about spending more money. Cheap ones might be ok to learn with and see if you want to do it, but it is the most discouraging hobby I have ever had. There is still stuff out there to be found. I found silver and older coins, buttons, toys, a gold ring and everything between. But I used a Minelab X-terra 305 which starts at over $300. The people that used the even higher model Minelab had good success at finding and distinguishing silver over trash. I have since given up on it. It is hard to find places to go and I don't like asking people for permission to get on their property. I also don't have the time or patience. I hated driving an hour and finding $.08 while I used batteries that cost $5, $20 in gas and wasted a day. Sure dig everything if you think it is a pretty unsearched spot, but some places can have thousands of items...we have a park near me that you can't move the detector an inch without detecting something....so no you don't dig everything except in rare cases. Lastly the most deflating thing is digging some good sounding signal at 8-10 inches and it being junk.
