Metal detector

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a decent metal detector for my young boy who is becoming interested in looking for "treasure". He's not yet 10 years old, so I'm not looking for a top of the range device, but at the same time, I don't want the cheapest product on the market. Any recommendations in terms of brands? 

Also, is this hobby in any way regulated? By that I mean, do hobby detectorists need a license or something similar? 

Thank you in advance.

There are metal detecting apps you can download.


Yes. I know this does not answer your question but at least you could actually download one immediately and test its effectiveness by hiding metal objects at different depths and seeing if the app works. This would at least give you and him a yardstick to measure dedicated machines by.


When I was 10 I was fascinated by microscopes. My grandparents bought me one. Tried it out for a few days and was thereafter cured. But I still thought it looked pretty cool on my bookshelf.
