The Barska Pro Edition metal detector was easy to assemble and simple to operate. My primary reason for purchasing the unit was to locate property markers, which are metal rods driven into the ground and are usually six inches or so beneath the surface. It was a simple task with this unit. The unit is much more versatile than that, and can be set to detect all metals or specific types of metal. It was reasonably priced and is built to last. I highly recommend this unit.
