Hi Folks
Anyone used the Deteknics  Scuba Detector in the sea?  (It looks like a Garret Carrot with a small coil on the end)
If so, is it any good?  Can it be taken in hold luggage on holidays?  Is it worth buying one?  Anyone got one they'd like to sell ?  Daft questions I suppose, but I'm going abroad soon and would love to spend a little time snorkelling and detecting in the shallows whilst the wife is tanning herself.

Cheers.  Tom.

No idea, but have always been interested in the idea of detecting in and under water, not that I can swim well, or scuba at all Smiley

Did see the 'River Hunters' on telly -  what they were doing looking like hard work in poor visibility, but then they were wading around rather than actually being under water - that must be pretty hard.

CelticSpikey (Paul) is the one to give advice on detecting under water. I seem to remember he did it on his last hol. Donít know what gear he used though. You could send him a PM and ask.
Iíve been watching the River Hunters and I was of the same thought. They seem to be making hard work of it, with not much idea either.
Interesting to note the best find of the series so far, an axe head, was in the loose stuff above the water line and found by a local volunteer helper.

One thingís for sure. You wouldnít get me trying it, Iím Aqua phobic.  I panic in the shower  Shocked

Hi guys, I'm still around. Thanks for thinking of me Val  Kiss Tom, My answer is yes mate get one you won't regret it I had hours of fun in the shallows obviously you can't go to deep but for snorkelling around the shallows sat arms length they are ideal. I had the scubatector used it e wry day for hours. I'll try and find my finds pictures mate and put it up also. Chat a bit more ok....Paul
