Pro Tips to Help You Find the Best Metal Detector

The best metal detector can sometimes seem elusive. There are so many options, and many of them are excellent machines. So, we asked the professionals “How can you find the best metal detector?”.

The philosophy of the pros is that you need to find the machine that’s ideal for you personally. The best metal detector depends on your individual needs and once you figure out what those needs are, you’ll be able to zero in on the best metal detector for you. Here are a few tips from professional metal detectorists to help you find a metal detector that’s best for you.

Metal Detecting Experience

One of the most important considerations when looking for the best metal detector is your current level of metal detecting experience. There are beginner machines for a reason and you should choose one if you’re new to the hobby.

Physical Ability

Some metal detectors are easier to use physically than others. If you have physical limitations look for a machine that’s lightweight and more compact, or if heavier, one that features a harness for more support. You may also benefit from a model that offers an adjustable handle. You may be surprised at the comfort of having the length just right; one click longer or short can make a world of difference!

Location, Location, Location

Where you hope to go metal detecting will also help determine the best metal detector for you. If you’re heading to the beach you’ll need a different machine than if you’re hoping to hunt where old Civil War relics will be found for example.

Type of Treasure

Metal detectors are designed to be good at finding different types of targets. So try to determine whether you want to find antique coins, gold, or other type of treasure and that will help lead you to the best metal detector.

Decisions, Decisions… Which Metal Detector Should I Buy?

Check any online metal detecting forum, and you’ll see one of the most popular questions: “I am new to the hobby, and want to order my first machine. What’s the best?” It’s a great question posed to a crowd who definitely knows the answer. It’s just that 30 detectorists may suggest 30 different models. So, which should you pick? Tagging along with a hobbyist for an outing is great because you can ask questions about features and try out the detector. Also, look at hobby magazines and metal detecting buying guides. After that, you should have a general idea of what features you want on your metal detector. Experts say: no matter what your budget is, you should be buying the best machine you can possibly afford. A few great finds like gold jewelry or a valuable relic could pay for your investment.

From the onset, you will see the names of the major metal detector brands. Among them are Garrett, Fisher Labs, Tesoro, Bounty Hunter and Teknetics. There are dozens of other manufacturers and you’ll begin to recognize the names. Next decision is the type of detector: VLF (Very Low Frequency) or PI (Pulse Induction). Most beginners select a VLF detector because PI’s are specialized for diving & salt water use and kind of pricey for the beginner. Then—how much will you spend? This will help to boil down your choices.  Finally—compare models.  Use the “Compare” button on this website. Simply select two different detectors and get a side-by-side chart listing each model’s features.

The Best Metal Detector Accessories

Metal Detector Accessories

When it comes to metal detecting, owning the right accessories can make it easier and more enjoyable when searching for hidden treasures.

Our Learning Library contains buying guide articles also known as metal detector reviews. Of course you can’t go metal detecting without a metal detector, but the right metal detecting accessories are important too. How do you know what accessories will enhance your metal detecting experience the most? Let’s take a minute to discuss the best metal detector accessories to have along with you on any type of treasure hunt so you can decide which will be the right ones for you.

Digging Tools

If you want to unearth any of the potential treasures your metal detector locates, you’ve got to have digging tools! Not your run of the mill garden shovel, digging tools designed for metal detectors. The metal detector digging tools to choose will be lightweight and easy to carry, yet strong and ready for years of digging up treasure caches.

Pinpointing Probes

Next to digging tools, one of the most essential metal detecting accessories to have on hand is a pinpointing probe. Electronic pinpointing probes will save you time and energy by certifying where exactly to dig for the treasure your machine located. While most metal detectors do have a “pinpointing” feature, this only goes so far. With a pinpointing probe on the other hand, you can really zero right in on a target to help you dig in the right spot the first time, as well as unearth your treasures gently and in a way that won’t damage what you’ve just found.

Extra Batteries

Most metal detectors will come with a battery or batteries, but it doesn’t hurt to have an extra set on hand; especially if you’re in a situation where you’re using your metal detector frequently. Extra batteries often mean the difference between ending your trip early and hitting all the sites you’d planned to search. This is incredibly important if you’re working on a professional search, but even hobbyists will find extra batteries come in quite handy when out metal detecting.


Headphones will let you hear more of the target signals, the deeper, usually older coins and valuables. After the metal detector itself, a set of good quality headphones should be the very next accessory to consider. While not everyone will want to wear headphones, they can be not only convenient for a metal detector user, but also respectful when in public places to avoid disturbing others. One of the best values in headphones that are made specifically for use with metal detectors is the Depthmaster Audiophone II.

Metal Detecting Books and Videos

Keeping up to date on metal detecting is important and will not only help you find more treasures, but will also make metal detecting even more fun! Reading metal detecting books and watching metal detecting videos is a great way to keep learning about treasure hunting as well as metal detector maintenance, operation, and use. Depending on your area you may also be able to find metal detecting classes or workshops as well to help further your education. But, wherever you are, metal detecting books and videos make helpful accessories to any type of metal detectorist.

There are a variety of other types of metal detecting accessories you may find helpful depending on your unique situation too. But, no matter what type of metal detectorist you are, these five metal detector accessories will enhance your experience and make metal detecting more enjoyable, and successful, than you imagined!
