I am new to the Bounty Hunter line as I have never owned one before. Which would you recommend to me, and why. Are they about the same in depth, or is one a little better than the other one? Anything will help, thanks

Hi J James: I have owned the L R P for about eight months and have found it to be very good coin shooting unit. It has a lot more features for the money and the DD coil covers a lot of area and has a very quick response time. The features I like the best are the variable notch function and it retains your settings when you turn off the detector or remove the batteries. Hope this helps with your decision. Happy Hunting, Bill

Bill is right. I have both and both are good machines. But the LRP is a tad deeper with the 11" DD coil, but the added features make it my go to machine. The LRP has auto and manual ground balance, as well as presets for quick turn on and go hunting. The LRP has more control for specific tone and notching over the QDP. For the price difference it's a no brainer. I bought the QDP to be able to switch coils since the 10" elliptical wasn't much cheaper than the QDP itself. My son uses the QDP when we go out together, but I love the LRP over the two.

Thanks guys, I was leaning towards the LRP anyway. It never hurts to see what some people think before you purchase it.
As far as something different, what is something that was not a coin. Say like a horseshoe or anything that you have found, and how deep do you think it was? Just curious about how deep it would go on something larger than a coin. Myself before I have dug flattened coke cans down about 15 inches with an old CZ 5.

It's still going to get a can at 15". All detectors do that. A can sometimes IDs the same as a dime or quarter. But the larger can will be deeper than the smaller coin.

I included some small stuff I have found at 3" in the pic below. I stop digging if my LRP says something PPs at 10" and I dig 10" and my Xpointer is silent. And I have had that happen before. So I know the depth is there, but assume the target is big. I've never air tested a horseshoe. But a soup can air tests 18".

If it helps, I have had an Ace 250, Bandido II, Deleon, Compadre, MasterHunter XIII, Xterra 70, Coinmaster GT and Fisher F2 and F5. The LRP is deeper detecting than most of them, only matching the same depth as the F5 and Coinmaster GT, while being as light as the Compadre and Bandido II. It has the better AM mode of all of them including the F5, which was pretty darn good. It controls the ground better than all except the F5. It recovers faster than all of them but matches the F5 and F2. There is a slight delay switching back from AM to Disc when holding down the mode button, and the Deleon had the fastest response between AM and Disc.

I'm thinking about the Land Ranger Pro as a purchase over the Ace 350. It seems there are more features and it appears a little cheaper. Any thoughts as to what one you'd prefer? I've used the Ace 250 before and like the simplicity but I'm worried it can't reach small targets deep enough.

Both are good machines. The LRP has auto and manual ground balance, a true non motion all metal mode (that is quite deep) and a numeric conductivity meter over the Ace 350 (plus a few programming options). A bonus over many detectors is that the conductivity meter will display a targets conductivity in the AM mode.

I sort of thought it was superior to the ace, and I think is a little more economical in your bang for your buck. :) thanks for the advice.
