Hi Everyone,

I got this ridiculous deal on a brand new metal detector. It is a $200 unit and I paid about $17 for it. never used still in the box. Has anyone done any detecting on the beach?......any luck?........any tips?......good beaches to try?

The one I got is the Bounty Hunter Lone Star Pro. I think they are discontinuing it and that's why I got such a crazy price. I work for Academy and sometimes we find out about insane clearance items and then get another 20% employee discount.

From the reviews I read it is a good beginner and novice unit. It also is rated for salt water. It think it might make for a nice beach combinghobbly but we have never tried it.

Start by hunting the chair lines and the cuts. if you dont discriminate you will dig a lot of ferrous junk.

do any detect shark's teeth ? After visiting the beaches of SC for 10+ yrs I still haven't found any. :BandHead:

It would only detect sharks teeth if the shark had been to the dentist and had metal fillings.

I have heard there were several sunken Spanish galleons of the coast of the Carolinas in the 16th and 17th centuries. I may be wrong but I seem to remember hearing that.

Several years ago my son got a metal detector and took it to the beach. Within the first 20 seconds after turning it on, it beeped. He reached down and scooped up a handful of sand. As the sand drained through his fingers he was left holding a gold ring. What a great way to start. Unfortunately he never found anything else other than trash.
