Metal Detectors for Kids

Top Ranked Metal Detectors for Kids

Below are a few metal detectors we would like to recommend for the younger metal detectorists or those new to the hobby.  Now, yes, you can get lesser metal detectors for less than a hundred bucks.  But if you want your youngster to continue with the hobby thus making your purchase an investment rather than a waste, I would caution you against buying anything too cheap.  When it comes to metal detectors, you really get what you pay for.  The Garrett ACE 150 below is the least expensive (and thus technilogically less-advanced) detector I would recommend for anyone serious about treasure hunting.  For the reasons listed in the blog "The Best Metal Detector for Kids," If you are looking for something for a toddler to swing around that will  make beeping noises to keep them occupied while grandpa or daddy are doing the serious treasure hunting, you may want to take a look at  the Bounty Hunter Junior as an inexpensive "toy" metal detector.

 #2 - Fisher F2 Metal Detector - Reg. $249  On Sale $199.99 Save 20%!!!

The Fisher F5 is a good machine for the dollar.  It is a little more advanced with a little better digital target ID readout but it is displayed in large easy to read numbers.  This metal detector also has a pinpoint function which makes zeroing in on a target much easier.  With 4 tone audio, 8-target ID segments, and approximate depth, the Fisher F2 provides enough information to the user but not an overwhelming amount which often only confuses a new detectorist.

#3 - Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II - Reg. $249.00 On Sale $199.99 Save 20%!!!

I chose the Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II because it is simple to use, but will help new detectorists learn the basic functions of a metal detector using analog dials instead of confusing digital input methods.  Dials allow you to very precisely tune in  your detector to selectively hunt for the treasure of their choice.  The main drawback is there is not pin-pointer mode on this detector.  So, the old criss cross method is necessary...a good way for a youngster to learn how detectors truly work!
