I need a metal detector recommendation please

Found 23rd May 2011
My son has asked for one for his birthday, I am only after entry level and i really don't want to be paying more than £40-50

I know I am not going to get a professional one for that, but he is only 13 and I am not sure what use it will get, so any recommendations would be welcome.

Garrett is a good make, it's the same make used in airports etc. Our was £200 and we've found about £3. To be fair its only been used a couple of times.

If youre thinking of taking it up as a hobby I would ask for advice here ukdetectornet as there is a lot of rubbish out there.

The one in the second link is a good price and has good reviews on amazon, I'm just wondering if i am better of paying a bit more for a second hand one,
