A Deep Seeking Coil Design

The Bounty Hunter Legacy 2500 metal detector 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 Legacy 2500 Concentric Search Coil Design:

The Bounty Hunter Legacy 2500 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.

A Well Equiped Design

The bounty hunter legacy 2500 includes a jumbo lcd display. This unit features a motion discrimination mode and an all metal mode. Targets are identified with a four tone 4 tone audio target response. You can easily identify the targets before digging. A notch discrimination filter gets rid of junk while still locating gold and valuables. A zap mode lets you accept or reject specific targets. The coin depth is shown on the digital display from 0 to 8 inches. The legacy 2500 features a squelch tech noise reduction circuitry digital touch pad controls. This model features an interchangeable coil system so that you can choose from a 4" or 10" coil option. The design features a padded arm rest, adjustable aluminum stem and comfort hand grip.
