I'm completely new to this hobby so I'm looking for used metal detectors to get started. I found a used White's Beach Hunter ID Metal Detector, but it's missing the rod to hold the coil with. I want to use this while snorkeling in the ocean. I have several questions:
- Is this a good price for this metal detector?
- Is it safe to use in saltwater? If so, how deep can you submerge it?
- Is it okay that it is missing a rod? Would it still be easy to use for snorkeling?
- What should I do to check it still works when I buy it?
