Treasure Hunting with the Troy Metal Detector


Visitors: 314

People who want to look for buried coins or jewelry should have a dependable metal detector at all times. This will make it easy to discover something when the alarm starts sounding and all the individual has to do after that is dig.

There will be times that the user will find junk while other times, something interesting. Regardless of whatever, at least the person can say that the machine that was purchased works.

One company that has been in the business of metal detection is Troy. Through the years, the firm has developed different models from the Shadow X2 to the X5 that can be used by professionals and amateurs.

The Shadow X2 is the most basic model. It is hand held and comes with an extended waterproof coil at the bottom. This device is battery operated and has a settings box in the center allowing the person to adjust the sensitivity when going treasure hunting.

Unfortunately, this model is quite old and is no longer being produced. This is the reason that those who are really serious about looking for buried treasure can try the Shadow X3 that has more features than the basic model.

This is lighter than the previous model and unlike other brands, this thing is only powered by a single 9 volt alkaline battery. The individual can probably get one of these for $899 in the market.

If anything goes wrong, the company will be happy to fix it since each metal detector has a lifetime guarantee.

Professionals who only want to use the best equipment in the field can never go wrong with the Shadow X5. It looks like the other models but the control switch allows the individual to do other things such as target and discrimination modes enabling the user to start digging within a few inches of the object.

The price for this baby, $1099. A little more expensive that the other models but given the special functions of this machine, the treasure will surely find a lot of things buried underneath especially when this can be used in almost any terrain.

Selecting the right metal detector will take time given that there are many brands in the market. But if the customer wants the best, there is no need to do that especially when Troy metal detectors are available in different models and can be upgraded with other accessories such as a larger coil for the unit.
