Have not got to use it at home for relic hunting yet but let me tell you......pullin' coins 15 inches down in wet salt surf sand is incredible to me. And this little piece of 14K with diamonds at 8"+... This thing is all that. Can't wait to get home and hit the Maryland and WV soil.... I like my XLT and T2 but this thing is goin straight to the front of the rack!!!!
