The Pioneer EX Provides a Successful Treasure Hunting Experience!

Bounty Hunter Pioneer Ex Featuring push-button discrimination and customize depth control functions, the Bounty Hunter Pioneer EX provides a lot of high-quality detection for a reasonable price. All of the most common metal detecting requirements are well covered by this detector- from coin shooting to gold prospecting to relic hunting.

Why is the Pioneer EX such a great detector, especially for beginners? To start, the machine comes with automatic ground balancing, ensuring that you won’t have to spend too much time or effort adjusting for ground conditions. Bounty Hunter is known for their effective automatic ground balancing systems, so you can spend less time tuning the detector and more time finding treasure!

Of course, there are plenty of customizable options to play with if you so choose. One of the most powerful is the machine’s ability to only search in one depth level at a time. If you are only looking for deeply buried objects, then switch off the shallow and medium search functions. This is a really powerful feature when you are hunting in locations where you are constantly running in to multiple possible targets at all three levels.

What Else Does the Pioneer EX Have to Offer Me?

With the Pioneer EX, you’ll also get the ability to easily reject and ignore targets you have no interest in. This machine breaks targets down into one of four different categories- Iron, Aluminum & Zinc, Aluminum & 5 cent (newer pull tabs, larger gold rings and nickels are included in this one) and Coins. You can choose to reject any number of these different categories outright, giving you tremendous control over what your detector hunts for and what your detector ignores outright. Combined with effective audio and visual identification systems, and you’ll significantly reduce the amount of junk you dig up with the Pioneer EX.
