As a beginner in the hobby of metal detecting it is important you choose the right metal detector. The wrong metal detector can create more headaches than anything else for you.

Here are our top beginners metal detector picks. The following metal detectors are well built and powerful, yet they are user friendly allowing newer users to pick up and go. They also allow room for you to grow as you learn your metal detector and become better at metal detecting.

Bounty Hunter Land Star


Our first pick is a metal detector by Bounty Hunter, the Land Star. The Land Star metal detector is a great beginners metal detector for a few reasons. This metal detector is extremely easy to set up and use. A good metal detector for those breaking into metal detecting should allow room to grow and learn, the Land Star has plenty of room for you to grow and learn.

To many less advanced metal detectors are garbage. They dont operate well and they are built very flimsy. You wont find that in the Bounty Hunter Land Star! The Land Star is built well for years of use, while it also performs extremely well, penetrating deeper in most conditions than most other metal detectors in it’s class.

Our third pick is a metal detector offered by Whites Metal detectors, the Prizm V. This particular metal detector is probably one of the hardest hitting of all the metal detectors mentioned in this article. It goes extremely deep and performs well in almost any situation.
