The model is ideal for coin shooting and gold prospecting. In iron-infested areas, this model works well due to its expanded iron target ID and ground balance control. Iron junk targets are effectively filtered out by the T2. Its LCD interface allows for precise identification of targets for the ultimate in target separation. The target ID on the Teknetics T2 uses a scale of 0-99 based on the conductivity of the metal. The display provides a full readout of all target information including accurate depth and target information in an easy-to-read format while you are treasure hunting. Add the 15" accessory search coil along with your purchase to extend your depth. This coil offers great ground coverage and depth.

Metal Detecting to the Next Power!

The Teknetics T2™ is a high-performance multi-purpose professional grade metal detector. It utilizes the latest advances in electronic technology, and its functional design represents the leading edge of the metal detector engineering art. The T2™ is easier to learn to use properly than other comparable metal detectors. Its combination of light weight and balance provides comfort unmatched by any other detector in its price range. Its most popular uses include coinshooting, relic hunting, and gold prospecting. The T2 is noted for locating treasure at extraordinary depths even in mineralized soil conditions. The double filter discrimination modes are used to remove trash metal objects such as nails, aluminum foil, and pull tabs. Metal objects can only be detected when the Teknetics T2 metal detector search coil is in motion when you are not in the discrimination mode. The Teknetics T2 offers a variety of audio discrimination options that can be selected to suit a variety of search conditions and personal preferences. A 1/4" headphone jack allows you to plug in your favorite headphones. This teknetics metal detector includes Fast Grab trigger actuated fastgrab manual ground balance ground cancellation. Using the trigger toggle you can easily switch modes. This feature allows you to find old coins and gold nuggets at unbelievable depths. With the T2 you have the power to ground balance and hunt in highly mineralized soils with ease. This model offers greater depth than most models on the market today. Treasure hunters that require extreme depth and sensitivity from their equipment love the T2. 

The Teknetics t2 metal detector model operates at a 13 kHz operating frequency for exceptional sensitivity to all targets. It is an ideal frequency for finding a variety of targets. With the frequency shifting feature, you can make slight adjustments to your frequency in order to avoid interference. A trigger is used for instant pinpointing. Pull the trigger switch to pinpoint accurately by squeezing the trigger. Once you've moved your waterproof search coil slowly across the target, sound will communicate the target's location. This waterproof search coil on this Teknetics T2 metal detector covers ground well and is precise enough to pinpoint targets with ease. The coil can be used in saltwater and has the sensitivity to find coins deep underground. Using only 4 AA batteries, this model offers an exceptional battery life of 40 hours.

I'm wondering how the Teknetics T2 is different from the T2 Special Edition? Also, not that I'm complaining but why the great discount on the Teknetics T2?
Question by: Tim on Apr 26, 2016, 11:40 PM Link
Great question! The Teknetics T2 Special Edition offers a "boost" mode that is not offered on the original T2. The bonus pack we offer on the Teknetics T2 SE also has two different search coils for different types of targets. Check out the T2 SE here: https://www.metaldetector.com/teknetics-t2-metal-detector-special-limited-edition
Also...we mark everything down to the lowest price allowed by each manufacturer, so our discount is the best around!
