From Big Kids to Tweens and Everyone In Between!
While we love the Bounty Hunter Junior Target ID for kids under 8, this model is the perfect next step for older kids and tweens. For those kids who are not quite ready for an adult sized model, this is a great choice. For slightly older or bigger kids be sure to check out the Bounty Hunter Legacy 1500 or the Teknetics Digitek which are both larger and features a full target identification LCD display.
Just the Right Fit! Not too BIG and Not too small
We all know the story of the three bears. The truth is, most adult sized detectors are just too big or too heavy for young bodies. The Bounty Hunter design team was the first to market with this truly tween-sized detector! This model includes an s-shaped pole design that extends from 33 to 43 inches for bigger kids. The well thought out and ergonomic design is just right for little bodies. Your search has ended. This model is just right!
The Features You Want
What is more fun for big kids and tweens than discovering treasure? The Bounty Hunter VLF 2.1 includes a search pole that extends to a full 43 inches, perfect for big kids and tweens. This model is rugged and includes an external speaker. There is no headphone jack on this model as a headphone is not required.
Just click the right knob fully counterclockwise (all the way to the left), in order to test the batteries. If the batteries are good, the needle will move to the right and enter the green zone on the indicator label.
The left knob clicks on to power the detector on. After turning on, the left knob is used to control the detector’s sensitivity level. In the 100% clockwise position, the detector is at maximum sensitivity. At this level, the detector will detect a coin-sized object, like a quarter, up to 5” away from the coil.
The right knob is used to eliminate unwanted metals from detection. For instance, you may be searching for coins, and want to eliminate objects like nails, bolts, or pull-tabs from detection. As you turn the right knob clockwise, you progressively eliminate different types of metals from detection. As you rotate the right knob, you first eliminate iron objects from detection. Iron objects include nails, bolts, old cans, and tools. Next, you eliminate nickels, pull-tabs, and finally zinc pennies.
Large Waterproof Search Coil
The Bounty Hunter VLF 2.1 features a 6" open center searchcoil for fast and accurate target pinpointing. Use it on land or take it to the beach for a day of fun in the sun.
Visual Display Meter
The Bounty Hunter VLF 2.1 features a full size intensity display. A low battery indicator is shown on the display.
All at a Price You Can Afford!
Don't Let the Low Price Fool You! Looking for a great low cost metal detector to introduce your child to the hobby of metal detecting? This rugged, easy to use unit is just the right choice. This tried and true metal detector is our suggestion for bigger kids and tweens because it is easy to use and folds down to a child sized length. While many low priced detectors are easy to use, most do not fold down to a child sized length. This is a great detector and an inexpensive way to introduce your child to the hobby.
