Came in today. I turned it on and threw a penny out side, and found it. Just checking to see if it worked. Plan on getting a pair of new rechargable 9V batterys, and charger for it maybe tomarrow, maybe 3 one for the pinpointer such as it is. My first detector was a ACE 250 about 5 years ago. Sold it, and bought a Minelab 705, kept it for a while. Sold it, and now I desided to get back to detecting and found this one. Seems to be just right for the money, light too and not a huge start up cost, and it has several nice features. Maybe if I strike it rich, I'll buy one with manual ground balancing. Hope to get to go hunting with it maybe Sat.
