Because my book is about detecting for beginners, I didn’t want to bias anyone by including information about any specific machines. I really want people to take a look at everything out there worth looking at, and evaluating for themselves what they feel will work best for them.
But I also feel that, as someone whose book should be as helpful as possible, I would be remiss in not sharing what I have learned about the various machines and related equipment, accessories and gear I have personally used. So, I included this section on reviews.
Please note that the lack of presence of any machine or related product in in my reviews does NOT mean it’s not a good product to consider. It simply means I haven’t personally tried it yet, and so don’t feel qualified to render an opinion.
