Reviews

Easy to use, good value. Arrrrgh Jim lad.
Arrr, matey! So ye be hunting for treasure, do ye? Well yer in the right place as this detector will serve ya right! Okay, enough of that. We bought this metal detector for my youngest (8yr). Very straightforward to assemble right out of the box. The controls are nice and clear. It only took the kids a couple of minutes before they were comfortable scanning and homing in on some test items. On the beach it seemed to work very well, we found something within 5 minutes of scanning and in a half hour walk we had a selection of metal bits and bobs that had been discovered (no jewellery or pirates treasure though, unfortunately). All in all, I can't fault it. It's good value, and stood up to being enthusiastically bumped around, and dipped in the sea with no issues.
Perfect for little treasure hunters
I am a metal detectorist myself and I have to say this is a very well-thought-out product. It comes in 2 parts which assemble with a simple spring clip. The build feels strong and sturdy which is exactly what you want for children. The coil and visual display unit fold in to make it small enough to fit in a backpack, making it perfect for a day trip to the beach. There are no wires to deal with, it's all well concealed inside the stem. It has the capability of more grown-up detectors, yet it's been simplified enough for children to understand. It has colour-coded discrimination to make it easy to distinguish between potentially good targets and bad ones, and it seems to detect coins really well up to a depth of about 6 inches, which is AMAZING! There's a pinpoint function too, which helps to locate the exact position of the target. Functionality wise, this is a way better kids detector that most of the others on the market, in my opinion. The only fault I can find is that it's designed for single-handed use but most children would probably prefer to use 2 hands (hockey stick style). That said, it can easily be used with one hand on the handle and a second hand further down the stem so it's not really an issue. The bottom line is, I absolutely love this detector as it's perfect for my kids and well worth the money. You should buy it!
An instant hit with the kids!
This is our third detector having already tried the Maplin Treasure Seaker and a Viking V5. It's fair to say the DR.ÖTEK MT9s detector beats them hands down. Setting the detector up for first use takes mere seconds with the included 9V battery. Make sure you have a posi screwdriver handy for the battery compartment. Once the battery is in it's just a case of turning it on and away you go. There's no manual tuning to do, it's all automatic. We were gobsmacked at the amount of targets this thing found in our back garden. Fortunately I have a small patch of ground that I didn't mind the kids digging up so I let my 6 year old daughter loose on it to give this detector a proper test. Three hours later, she's got over 20 finds. She wasn't even bothered they were all rusty bolts and screws. There's always the possibility of finding treasure! The feature that make's this detector a winner for the kids is the different sounds and lights it puts out depending on what metal you're swinging over. If you've found some old iron junk it will flash red with a low tone. Find some nickel, have a green light and a higher pitch tone. Silver? Blue light and an even higher pitch tone. This is a concept kids will grasp quickly and takes the frustration out of digging up junk (unless they're anything like my daughter!) One thing that may catch you out is the inductive switches/buttons on the control unit. The Disc/PP button on our unit has a sweet spot that's slightly below the printed graphic. Make sure you show your kids exactly where to touch on the unit otherwise this could be a problem. I'll revisit this review to comment on durability. I have no concerns though. There's a 2 year warranty that takes a couple of minutes to set up on their website. I have absolutely no regrets choosing this detector for my kids and am considering buying one of the bigger models for myself once I bag a few land permissions!
Great little detector for kids!!
Great little detector for kids. Nice and light for them to hold. We did find it worked a bit better on pinpoint mode. Easy to understand once you’ve read instructions
