Review of Rapoo H3050 For Metal Detecting

Rapoo H3050 wireless headset and transmitter


                       $36.69 From

One of the most annoying things about metal detecting can be the "umbilical cord" like tether between machine and detectorist. With the dislike of being tethered to my metal detector coupled with the extremely hot weather here in Nevada I decided to give the Rapoo 2.4 Ghz Wireless headphones a shot.

This post is brought to you by the good folks over at .

They are giving all new members the chance to win a coin tumbler,just for joining their new forum.
Personally, I use to sell my used metal detectors and accessories. It's great because I don't have to worry about all of the extra fees like on E-Bay. It's completely free! Check them out and join their forum while you're at it. I did!

A father and son using a Garrett ACE 150 METAL DETECTOR  while treasure hunting in Romania and discovered what could be oldest forged coins in history. The ancient counterfeit coins are worth approximately $150,000.00. US. Dollars.

Paul Croituru, 37, dug up the treasure of 300 forged silver coins worth nearly $150,000.00 - more than ten times what he earns a year as a council worker.

The father and son found 309 coins believed to be worth 500.00 each, as well as 40 fragments of the forged currency. The coins are believed to be the oldest counterfeit coins ever found!

The father and son immediately notified authorities of their amazing find and astonishingly will now lose nearly all of the money because of local treasure hunting rules.

Bounty Hunter Metal Detectors Are Compatible With Some Fisher Coils Part II

Hello Bounty Hunter metal detector fans! In my last post I talked about the many Bounty Hunter metal detectors that are compatible with the the Fisher F2 and F4 metal detector coils.

So lets dive right into the Bounty Hunter fun!

Why upgrade your perfectly good Bounty Hunter metal detector to a different coil? 

Bounty Hunter Metal Detectors Are Compatible With Some Fisher Coils Part I

Many Bounty Hunter Metal Detectors are compatible with the older, first generation Fisher Coils. It's a well known fact that Fisher Research Labs, Teknetics and Bounty Hunter metal detectors are all owned and manufactured by First Texas Products.

With that being said, it is no wonder that many of the Bounty Hunter metal detectors can benefit from an upgraded coil from the Fisher brand of metal detectors.

Why upgrade your perfectly good Bounty Hunter metal detector to a different coil? 

There are a couple of answers:

$10,000.00 Dollars in Silver Found in Wall of Old House

City workers in Florida discovered more than 2,000 silver coins or about 60 pounds of silver coins stuffed in glass pickle jars when they tore apart the walls of a condemned house.

The City workers were knocking down the house in April when they heard the sound of clinking coins, sounding like a Vegas slot machine payout.

That sweat sound was the sound of thousands of hidden silver coins pouring from the crumbling houses walls as the demolition crews tore into the walls with their heavy machinery.

Metal Detecting Hunt Turns Up a Ring Spill

Equipment Used:
Metal Detector: Teknetics T2 Special Edition Metal Detector 
Pin-Pointer:       Garrett Pro-Pointer    
Digger:              Standard Lesche Digging Tool
Camera:            GoPro HERO3+: Black Edition

Have you ever found two rings in the same hole? Well I hadn't...until this day.

I was metal detecting an older park with my T2, when I say "older" I mean older for this area. Las Vegas wasn't really Las Vegas until about 1905 and much of the older portions of Vegas are covered with mega huge casinos and their even larger parking lots.

So when we Vegas metal detector enthusiast can find a park from the 1930's, well, it's akin to our southern and eastern brethren finding an old Civil War camp site.

Digger:                Standard Lesche Digging Tool

Got out to hunt and air test a Tesoro Outlaw metal detector I took in on a trade. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the depth of this metal detector and the discrimination circuitry was an absolute pleasure to use.

I was able to get the following depths in air tests:
