In our INATEY GC 1065 metal detector review, we’ll step you through all you need to know about this flexible detector.
About the INTEY GC 1065
The GC 1065 from the brand INTEY is a low-cost metal detector you can enjoy using straight from the box. It’s easy to assemble and just put in a 9V battery (not supplied) and you’re ready to hunt!
It’s a surprisingly accurate metal detector. It comes with two search modes. With the discrimination knob, you can turn it to detect all metal or just regular metal objects. You can adjust the sensitivity as well. I’ve heard of it detecting as deep as 10 inches, though 4 to 8 inches is more realistic. Depth will depend on the type of terrain and the soil mineralization where you’re hunting.
The search coil is waterproof, making this suitable for beach and shallow water treasure hunting, but the control box is not waterproof, so don’t submerge the whole metal detector.
It has volume control knob and a jack for inserting headphones.
The INTEY GC 1065 will detect gold, silver, bronze, and platinum and it’s great for:
- treasure hunting in fields
- beach hunting
- gold hunting
- relic hunting
- jewelry hunting
