Wow I like the look of this new beastie even though the styling is heavily borrowed from minelab, and its camouflage  ;D

The pricing of some machines is just getting beyond a joke now,   :(

Looks like it would do a job but is more of a specialist machine, love the boast about pricing. Really makes you think your eyes won't pop out your head when you see the $ tag..

I'm happy with my Minelab debt, thank you Mr Garrett!

I read that the military had been using these for a while under the name recon pro, there are lots of neat features like how compact it packs away and I love the colour, but $3000 is a bit to much, and I bet they make an international model for about  $4000,

Looks cool to me. Love the telescopic shaft. Price on the leaflet is $2495, just under £1600, so doesn't seem that extreme if it does the business. Bear in mind the price of Minelab PI machines!!

I think it looks pretty cool and the way it folds up and fits in that wee bag is nice ... Would still rather have a minelab though ... :)

Just saw this too Rob, a few new stickers surely the company is big enough and successful enough to come up with better than a rebadged 2009 army mine sweeper...   :/

The conversion of $2495 is approx. £1595, there are more expensive detectors on the market.    Its Pulse Induction with the ability to identify iron (0-25).   It has an adjustable sensitivity control (0-13).   Advanced Ground Balance.  Search mode can be Motion or Non-Motion.  Weighs 5.5lbs (2.5kg), if well balanced shouldn't be a problem.    Standard 10"x12" DD coil giving good sensitivity to small items.  Collapsible, robust and weatherproof/waterproof.
   
I think this detector has a lot going for it!    Pulse Induction detectors are not suitable for the majority of detectorists, however, for those who use them, this is an attractive machine.
