Amazon.com is a good place to find metal detectors. It is a great place to go to see what is available. You can search by brand, price, and keywords, like “high performance.” Each product has a description, details, and sometimes customer reviews.

High-end metal detectors are advantageous because, although they cost more, they save you time and make the time you spend as a historian, archaeologist, or treasure hunter more profitable and gratifying.

Teknetics T2

This all-purpose detector was designed to be simple, light-weight, and to perform with excellence. It is surprisingly light-weight, only 2.9 pounds, which allows for a long hunt without getting burnt out. It is easy to use but also powerful enough to find things. The LCD screen is straightforward and simple to read.

A novice could use this machine, but serious hunters have been impressed with it too. This detector is a strong performer, which is surprising due to the very reasonable price-tag.

It is a VLF (very low frequency) detector that uses a single frequency. It comes with a seven-year warranty, which shows the company’s confidence in their product.
