FAQ: What's The Best Good Affordable Underwater Metal Detector?
Finding a good, quality, affordable, waterproof metal detector can be a challenge. We sell metal detectors in all price ranges. In the past, in order to get a halfway decent underwater metal detector - not just waterproof coil - you had to spend upwards of $500-600. Recently a newcomer hit the market at the $250 price range. Thus far, our feedback on them has been pretty darn good too.
Introducing the Nokta-Markro Simplex + Metal Detector
Nokta-Makro's tag line for the Simplex + is:
"SIMPLE ENOUGH FOR BEGINNERS, YET IMPRESSIVE ENOUGH FOR EXPERTS!"
This detector is touted as a true "turn-on and go metal detector". If you are looking for a high-end detector but you simply want extreme depth and basic features of a high-end device then this may be the detector for you. Featuring a sleek, lightweight style, with preset modes (including beach mode) it can accommodate just about any level of metal detectorist.
The simple to use button layout and easy to read face plate display makes this detector a choice option for land and water hunting.
I have gotta say, we took the Simplex plus out a few times when we first got them in stock and were pretty in pressed with how easy they were to use, the cool features, and loved the audio output. Additionally you can get the WHP or Wireless Headphone Version for only $339.15
