Rated 3 out of 5 by CoinWorld Omega Coin Magnet
I have had my Omega for a over a year now, and have found it easy to use and reliable. As for finding Coins, once you have it tuned properly, it will always find coins. It also finds alot of trash, I have to have everything notched out except for the last three settings, Zinc Penny, Dime and Quarter. It still picks up foil. You can't even use it in All Metals mode as it signals continually, you would be digging every three seconds. It has its good points if you are into coin shooting. It will not pass up penny dime or quarter, if you do not have the nickle notched out, then it will pickup pull tabs. Target detection is right on, if you get a 76 - 78, thats a zinc penny, a 82-83 is a dime, an 86-87 is a quarter. Never found a half dollar or dollar. Very poor for artifacts and jewerly as you have to have all that notched out or else your digging every 30 seconds. So if you are intersted in Coin shooting and have $600 to spend, get the Omega. If you want to find other treasure, I would suggest you spend a couple of hundred bucks more and get the Whites MXT. Its a higher-end unit and will find everything. It will last for ever(Teknetics are a little on the low end, ie the 5 year warrenty). After a year with the Omega, I have found a bunch of clad coins, very little else, One small gold (plated) chain, 1 transit token and one Army Good Conduct Metal(bronze). The Omega is very light, so that might be a bonus. The battery lasts forever and even longer if you use a headset. Its horrible with EMI, You cannot get within 100 feet of power lines. I would say that the Omega is a good entry level machine, but after 1 year, I am ready to upgrade. I would probably also try the T2 Limited, but I already have $600 invested in this Omega. Some people also opt for the larger coil for the Omega, but thats like $200 more. If your going to spend that kind of money, you should go with the MXT or T2. Also, I recommend joining a Treasure Hunting club in your area, these guys will point you in the right direction.
