Features Four Custom Modes

Bounty Hunter engineers started with a clean slate when they introduced the new Bounty Hunter Platinum. The Bounty Hunter Platinum model is feature-packed yet offers turn on and go simplicity. This top model adds four custom programs: A discriminate mode, a pinpoint mode, a ground grab mode and an all metal mode. This metal detector sets a new standard for high end features and value. Feature for feature, this model goes far beyond the competition. The Bounty Hunter Platinum is lightweight, well constructed and deep seeking. This detector is easy to use and features intuitive controls.

Discrimination Mode - This mode is the default mode and is the mode most commonly used for continuous searching. Like most modern metal detectors, it requires the searchcoil to be in motion in order to detect and identify targets. In this mode, targets are identified with distinct tones, and are classified in categories at the top of the display. A two-digit numerical value, on a scale of 10 to 99, is displayed in the middle of the screen. The depth range of the target is also displayed at the bottom of the display. All menu items can be selected, customized or changed in this mode.

Pinpoint Mode - Pinpoint is used to find the exact location of a target which was previously located and identified using the discrimination mode. As this mode does not require motion over the target, you can move the coil more slowly and then narrow the detection field when near the target.

Ground Grab Mode - All soils contain minerals. Signals from ground minerals interfere with the signals from metal objects. All soils differ and can differ greatly in the type and amount of ground minerals present. This detector incorporates ground balancing algorithms which eliminate interference caused by the ground minerals found in most soils. The quick and easy to use Ground Grab feature, allows the user to more precisely calibrate the detector's internal circuitry to the specific ground you are searching.

All Metals Mode - This mode is a no-motion mode. Metal targets are detected with the searchcoil motionless over the target. Target identification is not possible in this mode. All metal objects will induce a single monotone hum. The 2-digit value in the middle of the screen represents the approximate target depth, in inches.

Made In the United States - 5 Year Warranty

The Bounty Hunter Platinum is crafted in the USA and is backed with a 5 year parts and labor Warranty. This model features an easy to read jumbo LCD display with digital target identification and depth readings. The Bounty Hunter Platinum features a ground balance adjustment that allows the detector to operate in the toughest, most mineralized soil conditions. There are no complex adjustments or settings to worry about. Just turn it on and go! Start having fun with this model from your first time out. This model will locate coins, rings, gold and relics. Use it at parks or at the beach. No matter how you look at it, the Bounty Hunter Platinum offers the best quality, price and features. To top it off, this model is backed by a full 5 year warranty.

A Deep Seeking Coil Design

The Bounty Hunter Platinum detector model features a cutting edge concentric search coil design. The triple spoke design punches down deep and cuts through iron and aluminum trash. The concentric coil winding produces smooth operation for all types of treasure hunting. The search coil is waterproof and features an 8" diameter... a perfect balance between depth and sensitivity. Experience powerful, deep target detection and easy pinpointing.

Understanding the Bounty Hunter Platinum Concentric Search Coil Design:

The Bounty Hunter Platinum concentric coil is engineered with both an inner circle and an outer circle wire winding. The search pattern produced is cone shaped and is excellent for accurately pinpointing targets with ease. This Bounty Hunter Search coil includes the latest technology and is waterproof and electro statically shielded. In general, larger search coils will give better depth with larger targets and better ground coverage. However, sensitivity to smaller objects may be sacrificed. Smaller search coils will offer greater sensitivity to smaller objects and improved target separation in trashy soil. This coil offers the perfect balance of depth and sensitivity.

Four Tone Audio Target Identification System:

While the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) is very accurate in identifying buried objects, you may not be looking at the screen as you walk over an item. The detector has 4 audio tones and will be your first alert to a buried object. This audio feedback system will first alert you to the presence of an object. Then look to the LCD display screen, to show in vivid details, what you have located. The detector has up to four different tones, depending on the object detected.

Top of The Line Features and Performance

The Bounty Hunter Platinum includes a jumbo 2 digit LCD target readout. A low battery indicator and target depth are displayed on the large LCD display. This model features a no motion ground grab and a push-button pinpoint control. There are four modes of operation. Four tone audio target identification helps you determine what is in the ground before you start digging. A built in sensitivity adjustment and volume control let you get the best depth and audio response possible. This unit includes an overload alarm system. The Bounty Hunter Platinum includes an arm strap, a built in arc stand and a padded arm rest and grip.

great detector Review by Al
Have had this detector for over a year now. It’s easy to use has great depth. The visuals are great. I use the 2 tone mode. Very easy to ground balance. The fact that you can even ground balance this machine at this price is worth it. Nothing negative I can say about it. (Posted on February 14, 2018)
