Main Advantages and Features
Excellent features, affordable price
This product is lightweight and comes with an 8” diameter waterproof search coil, making it perfect for using on the beach as well as in water. The coil can be fully submerged without any risk of damage and it will detect any metals lying under the surface of the sand. The only thing you need to be careful with not to get wet are the search coil cable plug and the electronics control housing. Other than that, you will be able to search a good portion of the beach and find any hidden treasure buried underneath.
Advanced notch discrimination
You can set this bounty detector to remove any junk and only detect the items you are interested in. Users will be able to avoid iron, aluminum and foil and thus only identify items that could actually make them a profit. In order to set it to look for something in particular or to avoid something in particular, you will only have to press the Notch button to accept or reject anything from the Target Category Arc that is displayed on the screen.
Easy to use
There are so many detectors that require making a lot of setting before being able to use them and fortunately this will not be the case with the Bounty Hunter Prolone Lone Star Pro. This metal detector does not have any complicated start up routines that it needs to memorize, so all you have to do is power it up whenever you want to begin looking for metals.
Jumbo LCD target identification and depth display
One of the most useful features of this product is the fact that it has a large display that indicates the target identified, thus saving the user the trouble of having to dig in order to discover what they have found. This detector will display targets broken out into 9 target ID Categories and easily identify products such as pennies, dimes, soda cans, iron pieces and many others. This way you will not have to dog up junk and only find items that you are actually interested in. In addition, this metal detector will also indicate how deep the item it has found is, using a 3-arrow display. The product can identify coin-sized objects at up to 8”deep, however, larger items can be identified at a bigger depth.
The sensitivity levels on this device can be adjusted between 1 and 6. Naturally, the higher the sensitivity, the more items it will identify. The product comes with a default set at 4, but you can adjust it according to what you are looking for.
One of the main disadvantages that most fully featured metal detectors have is the fact that they are quite heavy, thus limiting your ability to use them as much as you wanted before your arm gets tired. Well, this will not a be a problem with the Bounty Hunter Prolone Lone Star Pro, as it only weighs 2.4 pounds, making it ideal for many hours of continuous use.
Battery level indicator
This detector requires a 9-volt Alkaline battery, which should give you about 20 to 25 hours of use. In addition, the product has a battery level indicator that will display how much battery you have left with one, two or three bars.
All in all, this is a very good metal detector for those who want something easy to use and efficient. Its decent price and multitude of interesting features makes it one of the best buys of the moment. Bounty Hunter really did a great job with this product, as it comes with a tone of useful features and it is still lightweight and easy to use.
