Image for Winbest Pro Edition Metal Detector Review

The Winbest Pro Edition Metal Detector is in the category of first time metal detector for kids. Its a short, easy to hold basic metal detector with some features that makes metal detecting a bit easier. A preset ground balance for different terrains, discrimination modes and sensitivity controls are a nice to have in a basic metal detector. However, for kids, I recommend operating in all metal modes. I think for kids its more fun to just find things – anything.

The Winbest Pro Edition Metal Detector can be had at a very modest price (less than $90.00). It supports two 9 volt batteries for long usage and has a head phone jack. By using head phones on the detector, the battery life can be extended even further.  However, the detector still has a speaker for audible target alerts. The low battery indicator is a helpful feature as well.

The easily viewable analog meter in the forward face of the control box is a intuitively understood and would be exciting for children when metal is detected.

The main complaint about this unit is that it is cheaply made and will not stand the test of time. However, I believe that if a child takes to the hobby of metal detecting then I much better unit should be purchased. Overall, I like this metal detector as a starter unit for kids.
