Customer reviewsSimple no frills saltwater detector
Simple no frills metal detector that is tuned for saltwater. I currently have two detectors I use, a third one ACE 350 I gave to my son to use. Since I bought this CZ-21, I have really enjoyed beach hunting My other machine is a Garrett AT Pro that I bought with gift cards from my sister for my birthday. The AT Pro is decent for the beach and I can t knock it too much. After all, I found my first gold ring with it. But, the CZ 21 outshines it at every aspect. This detector is a Dual frequency VLF machine, thus it runs really stable in saltwater. My AT Pro is a chatty thing in the water. Yes, those who are obsessed with the AT Pro tweak it to quiet it down, but that reduces the depth as the AT Pro is a single frequency VLF machine. I have found a gold, silver and tungsten ring with my Fisher CZ 21. I have also recovered over 20 fishing sinkers as well. For those who hunt the surf seriously, you know you have to hit sinkers to find the gold. The CZ 21 is waterproof to 250 feet and is used by divers. The only downside to the Fisher is that the coil is hard wired, along with the headphones. There is no swapping out coils without sending the unit back to Fisher. For me, it is not a big deal at all. I like my 8 inch coil as is. The unit itself is pretty hefty, but I chest mount mine. That way, I am swinging the coil only It is light weight and I can swing it for hours without feeling tired.
