Metal detecting is becoming a popular outdoor hobby these days, partly due to all of the reality TV shows that chronicle the adventures of detectorists. If the man in your life loves shows like “Diggers” and “Rebel Gold,” surprise him this holiday season with the gift of a lifetime – a metal detector! Before you decide on the right detector, here are a few questions: do you think he will be hunting for coins, historical relics, gold, or all of the above? In the beginning, most new hobbyists want to search for everything. Experts say a good first detector is an all-purpose unit. For example, the Garrett AT Pro, at around $600, is considered one of the best all-around metal detectors on the market. Of course, there are detectors at lower price points, as well. If you are purchasing a detector as a surprise holiday gift, consider your budget before choosing a detector. Below is a list of our top sellers at prices from low to high.
