Precise, sensitive metal detector works on both land and water

The Bounty Hunter Land Ranger Pro has a wide variety of modes and sensitivity levels so you can really zero in on precious finds like jewelry and coins, and eliminate trash. The LCD display grabs from a huge library of graphic icons when you come across objects like pop cans, paper clips, and so on, so you always know what’s lying beneath the surface.

7 preset modes

Whether you’re looking for rare coins or that wedding ring you lost in the garden years ago, the Land Ranger Pro has 7 preset modes you can choose from. Select coins, jewelry, artifacts, 2 tones, 3 tones, 4 tones, or all-metal. The “tone” modes refer to the frequency that the object in question gives off.

Advanced Notch Discrimination

After you’ve chosen your preset mode, the advanced notch discrimination lets you cancel out all the junk. The Target Category Arc contains a selection of possible finds, like iron, foil, scrap metal, etc, and by rejecting them, you will not be alerted when the metal detector picks them up. This saves you a lot of time and means when the metal detector goes off, you’ve found something good.

LCD target identification display

With the LCD target identification display, you get a vivid idea of what the detector has discovered. The graphic icon library is huge, so the detector is able to identify stuff like coins, bits of coil, bullets, soda can tops, and show you an image of it on the LCD display.

Strengths

Easy to use

A lot of more advanced metal detectors are difficult to use, but the Land Ranger Pro has an easy menu complete with both audio and visual cues. Easily select your ideal mode and notch and hunt away. The menu also displays the battery level.

Very sensitive

When a metal detector is on a lower sensitivity level, it won’t pick up as much. Whether you want to get the experience of hearing the variety of tones or you only want to be alerted when something bigger and good has been found, you can adjust the metal detector on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the most sensitive.

Waterproof coils

Search in the water and on beaches with the waterproof coil. You can get this detector in either an 8 or 11-inch model, and both are waterproof so you can search for treasures that have settled underwater in the sand.

Weaknesses

Expensive

The main downside to the Bounty Hunter Land Ranger Pro is that it is pretty expensive. It’s not nearly as much as professional-level detectors, but is still pricier than what you can find for intermediate users. You have to really love metal-detecting, because you probably won’t make back that money in treasures. However, more expensive does equal more features, so you get more for your buck.

Overall Review

The Bounty Hunter Land Ranger Pro is a very sensitive, very precise metal detector that you can easily adjust for use in water or on land. If you don’t want to, you never have to dig up junk and will only be alerted when you find gold, coins, artifacts, or any of the other treasures listed in the 7 preset modes and displayed on the LCD graphic screen.
