Assembly was a snap, without even looking at the instructions. It’s very intuitive and if you’ve assembled other Detectors this is very similar. Very ergonomic, swings nice and not front end heavy. I charged the battery and it took 5 hours with an ac walls art and the included usb charging cable. Ran a few targets past the coil to get a feel for tones and id’s. Then had to work all day yesterday, and today and tomorrow.....Hoping my work schedule and the weather will cooperate soon so I can actually get out and detect wth it. But after many months of anticipation, it’s grest to finally have it in hand!
