Bounty Hunter Discovery 3300? Has anyone used?
« on: July 22, 2011, 13:03 »
Hey guys,
My search for a new metal detector has taken the full circle and I am now considering a Bounty Hunter Discovery 3300.
Has anyone ever tried, or heard good/bad things about it?
Cheers,
Stringy

Thanks for that Smurf!
So if they look the same alimo, do you reckon they'll work the same? ::)

Oh man! I just can't decide on the right machine......
F2 or 3300? F2 or 3300? F2 or 3300?
I suppose I'll have bite the bullet eventually.....

the recovery speed of my fisher seems faster than the new Bounty hunter time ranger
build quality of Fisher is also a bit better with these two
you have chosen 3 quite different machines
two with VID and one without
and some with ground balance and some without

The different types of detector reflect how uncertain I am about what I want Alimo  ::)
What do you think of VID? Is it worth it?
And how good is the target separation of the F2?

 :) hi SB, how did you go with your choice of detector? got a BH discovery 3300 a week ago, $358 with optional 4 '' coil and express post. my first M.D. so can,t compare results. seems easy enough to use. great depth,pinpoint accuracy is very good.  just doing ground balance and using all metal mode,finds smallest,thinnest wire at 6 '' plus.does,nt like wet sand,but i have not experimented with sensitivity,and discrim. yet. 2 x 9 volt batteries lasted about 30 hours- dick smith alkaline $ 4.95 ea. trying coles alkaline batteries at  $2.50 ea. seems the tracker 4 in the right hands,is doing well on this forum. see how i go. cheers.

Hey scratchin, I ended up getting a Tesoro Silver Umax.
So far I have no regrets whatsoever! The disc is great, the depth is unbelievable, and the battery life ain't to bad either!
Maybe one day my curosity will get the better of me and I'll buy a 3300, however it won't be because my Umax ain't good enough.
Cheers,
Stringy

    ;) hi S,B, good choice with the tesoro.i would,ve got one too if i had the extra $$$$$. the 3300  seems good,but i don,t think all the extra functons are worthwhile for me.a good tone/s and  ground balance would be easier as it appears necessary to dig all targets anyway.? hope to see your successful posts soon. cheers. 8)

Hey Scratchin,
I'm on a pretty tight budget too, all you gotta do is look for one going on ebay or findmall! I got mine for about $220 inc postage in great nick.
As for my successful posts, I'll try and do a post of all the best finds since I got my new tector soon.
Cheers ;)

Hey Scratchin,
I'll have to meet up with you sometime as I live in the South-East and get up to Adelaide occasionally.
The only time I've detected on a beach in Adelaide was hopeless, 2 hours of detecting for a measly 2 dollars.
Keep trying those parks, because sooner or later, you'll get one that isn't yet detected.
Cheers,
Stringy

Hey Scratchin,
I actually live in the lower S.E. Let me know when your coming down this way and I'll take you to one of my spots!
$15 at a beach sounds pretty good to me!
Seeya,
Stringybark
PS I won't be around for 4 days or so, going camping on the glenelg river. Look out for some (hopefully) good finds in a few days!

Bob,you should be able to buy a nearly new Ace 250 for around that money. Ask in the wanted section.
http://forum.kimbucktwo.com/index.php/board,23.0.html
You cannot sell yet in that section but you should be able to list what you would like to buy.
(3 months membership or 50 posts to sell )

I have ordered a 3300 off the tiptop shop in Sydney. Price was 379 posted to Tasmania. Is around $80 more than one from USA but prefer to buy in oz if I can. Will be putting up a few posts about it once I get it sorted.

Played around on the Ironing board today and did an air test of Australian coins among other things.   I waved the target at the coil and then noted the ID number on the display and recorded the tone. Treat as  a guide only of course but every little bit helps.  Print on Landscape.

Howdy all
 Just an update on the 3300 that I purchased recently. The machine has found me silvers and pre decs in places I have already been over many times with my 2 other machines. Manual ground balance, built in pinpointer ( which is ok without being brilliant ) and good discrimination of iron and four target tones make it a good value detector. Reliability ...well it feels ok, light (which all Bounty Hunters are) no loose or obviously junky bits. Will just see how it lasts.  Back to the pinpointing of the machine. I noticed on one of the YouTube videos that I watched that he found that if you re-pin pointed a 2nd time over the target it seemed to make it more precise. I have found this too. Find the target with the pin pointer, then holding it close or on it, hit the pin point button again. The signal will be much shorter and the target is in the centre of the coil  90% of the time.  Over all am happy with the machine. The thing that would make it perfect for me would be if it was waterproof, but then at the price you can't realistically expect that :) .

Howdy all,
     It started to rain on me the other day and fortunately I had some large freezer bags and electrical tape so that solved that problem. I also used it on the beach for the first time and was initially disappointed as my Tracker IV handles the wet sand well. All metal was hopeless but in fairness the beaches around here are full of iron carrying basalt. I put it in discrimination mode then finally started thinking and took it down to just one segment of discrimination which solved 99% of  problem. Also reduced the sensitivity down to 2 segments which is only 1 less than the default setting.  Have now got the hang of the pin pointing and ground balancing. I have noticed that I can tell if it is rubbish or a coin by the tone of the pin pointer as it gives a nice short crisp signal on a coin and not so crisp on the rubbish. Aluminium scrap gives a low tone and I am impressed with its depth.  Still happy with the machine. I am starting to hunt goldies now as I have a long way to go to get to the total I need for an Excalibur which I won't be buying 2nd hand.
Roger
