Newbie potential detectorist here. Although I won’t have much time until after this summer, I am wondering if it would be possible to meet an experienced metal detectorist in the field for some kind of induction. I would love to take metal detecting up as a hobby, but am seeking some expert advice before I decide which equipment to purchase.
You can get advice on the forum all the experts are in one place. To be honest there is no magic to detecting you just need to start off with something easy to use. If you like to fiddle with settings it can take time to learn some machines. I use an xp deus never had the need to mess with it just use the standard settings and take my chances.
