What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Bounty Hunter Discovery 2200 Metal Detector with 4-Tone and 9-Segment Target Identification
  • An extremely useful and easy to use product, light weight and user friendly. Great fun.
  • The length is perfect for me and did not have that kink in my back from bending slightly like I do with my other detector.
  • This was suggested for me as a beginner. It is lightweight. Who knows what I will find!
  • Lightweight and can be folded compactly to easily carry it with you.
  • Very length because of what I have to lean back so that it is above the surface.

What customers say about "Detection"
Bounty Hunter Discovery 2200 Metal Detector with 4-Tone and 9-Segment Target Identification
  • Found 6 bullets in about an hour, some of which were buried 4-6 inches down. Did a great job in the water.
  • The actual detector is fairly accurate. Also, I appreciate how you can easily take the batteries out.
  • Sensitivity is the best, use it with headphones. Lightweight, a decent value for the money.
  • I've only found a few pennies, a nickel, some rusty nails, pull tabs and some aluminum bits so far. It seems to me that it is looking only on the surface and in the depths it sees nothing.
  • Detection is inaccurate which is very annoying because you have to dig extra pits.

What customers say about "Features"
Bounty Hunter Discovery 2200 Metal Detector with 4-Tone and 9-Segment Target Identification
  • 4 audio signals that perfectly divide things by different signals.
  • I like that I can use the coil underwater to find something unusual.
  • I am very pleased with the metal detector because I have the opportunity to search under water thanks to a waterproof coil.
  • Works great on dry sand on beach. The only issue i have is the coil size. It's good for about 6" of depth.
  • Depth indicator works with interference. At the same place can change indicators.
