Metal Detector Database With User Reviews

Recommended Posts


With Bounty Hunter, Fisher, Garrett, Minelab, Nokta/Makro, Teknetics, Tesoro, White's, and XP plugged into the database I can now tell you that just between those few manufacturers (First Texas owns Bounty Hunter, Fisher, and Teknetics) there are just over 100 models of brand new detectors for sale. Yikes - no wonder people get confused!

Thanks Keith, it may turn out to be but is still a work in progress.

It's not like it has not been done before but I think it has promise. I am doing this in large part because in the past this website was more prospecting focused. The slow pace of the industry made it pretty easy for me to just review every new nugget detector that came along personally.

Now that the website is expanded into all phases of metal detecting there is no way I can review them all, and frankly I am not inclined to doing many more reviews in the future anyway, being content now with what I have. This will hopefully keep the review bandwagon going by opening it for all to contribute reviews in a more organized fashion than is possible of the forums.

I have Tesoro done and Bounty Hunter, Fisher, Garrett, Minelab, and White's mostly done. Barely a dent in Teknetics. I made a few changes to the menu structure that put the new database front and center and my older reviews more in the background. Eventually I will have it all crosslinked anyway.

All current Teknetics models have been added. I am now going to start listing the most popular discontinued models from various manufacturers that are still in use.

I'm sure you have already thought of it but don't forget to include pin pointers. A very important tool !

      Hope all made the trip from the old to the new forum. I like when Rob made the change and this looks the same. This is such a great forum and now it's made a big step forward.
      For info on new detectors you will find it here. The main reason nobody is making a push to sell their product ( detector ). So here it's not one sided picture you get..
      I like all the other forums but I find myself spending more time here.
      Thanks Steve for the new look.

      Steve, Have you considered a events page where person could find out about seminars, outings, group events? I would be intetested in knowing about such things. Thanks-Therell

      After my post this morning abt the events i got to thinking; this website has already got to require a commitment of time and i am asking for something that may require additional time invested, isn t he doing plenty just by hosting this site? This thought stuck with me all day and led me to create this post.
      THANK YOU STEVE for creating and running this website I sincerely appreciate the enrichment it has given and the knowledge it has given/helped spread. I applaud you, and you have my respect.
