Enjoy the Ease of Use and Exceptional Variety of the Bounty Hunter Lone Star Metal Detector!

When you are thinking about purchasing a metal detector, there are probably a variety of things you are looking for. You’re probably looking for a detector that is a good price for what you get, a detector that will perform. You’re probably looking for a detector that is great for all the more common and basic treasure hunting applications- things like relic hunting and coin shooting. Bounty Hunter Lone Star HuntYou’re probably looking for a detector that features target identification with a helpful LCD screen with easy-to-understand readouts and pre-programmed search modes. If these are some of the things you want from a metal detector, than you don’t need to look any further than the Bounty Hunter Lone Star.

And if you are looking to start out in treasure hunting, you’re probably looking for a device that will last. Bounty Hunter is so confident about the quality and longevity of the Lone Star model that it comes bundled with their great 5 year manufacturer’s warranty. And chances are, it’ll take that long before you feel like you want to upgrade to a higher end model- if you ever feel that way, of course.

But Just How Powerful is the Lone Star Metal Detector?

For starters, the Lone Star utilizes a powerful 8 inch search coil that is completely waterproof, which means you can perform a hunt anywhere you want. It is rated at finding coins and other small objects as deep as 8 inches into the ground, while it is known to find larger objects at least 3 feet down. You have 3 different operation modes at your finger tips with the Lone Star, giving you the ability to really tune the detector to reject trash and focus on the treasure. You can search in all metal mode and not reject any type of metal or you can search in discrimination mode with progressive discrimination with a turn of the DISC/NOTCH dial (starting with ferrous and moving to non-ferrous targets).  Searching in the programmed auto notch mode provides a rejection "window" that eliminates most pull-tabs and iron at the low setting and varies from low conductivity items to high conductivity items as the DISC/NOTCH dial is turned.
