Need Bounty Hunter Quick Silver Advice

I bought a Bounty Hunter Quick Silver this past weekend and it looks like a blast to use. I've never had a detector with an audio ID system before, I'm hoping to be able to go into trashy areas and still manage to dig up a coin. Any advice Pro or Con will be greatly appreciated.

A little late but I too just picked up a bounty hunter quick silver. It appears that the recovery speed is pretty slow so I have been swinging slower than usual. My Quick silver does not like the sensitivity turned all the way up unless targets are few and far between. I found my first silver coin this year with the quick silver, a 1902 dime.

The older BHs (6.6 khz) cannot match the performance and speed of the newer Pro line of BHs.(7.69 khz)

Even the sub $200 Quick Draw Pro blows away the abilities of the older units, including the Time Ranger. The best older BH is still the 505, IMO.

Most of the folks here probably aren't familiar with the Quicksilver. It's our approx. $100 retail lowest cost target ID machine. Good for about 6 inches or so on coins, easy to use, good beginner machine for parks and tot lots, although in that price and performance range I personally prefer analog "beep and dig" machines without target ID.

The Quicksilver was my first project at FTP back in early 2003. Major revision of an earlier platform. The project went quick and smooth with no intro issues, and the boss thought the new guy walked on water.

This is a funny business. A good solid metal detector design can stay on the market for decades.
