My interest in detecting was initially piqued when someone suggested I watch 'Detectorists' as it's a great lesson in brilliant comedy writing - my other hobby is writing screenplays.


And I loved the show from the start, though it didn't immeadiately result in me taking up the hobby. No, that came a couple of years down the line when a birthday left me with a small pile of Amazon vouchers and nothing that I needed to spend them on.


So a brief but sucessful couple of months with a Chinese detector and I was hooked and ready to get a proper machine. I watched Youtube, read magazine articles and reviews, compared features and finally decided to get an Alter 71 due to the combination of great switch and go settings and a wealth of settings for me to grow into as I became more familiar with the machine.


I've never looked back...


I'll be at Detectival, hope to see you there.
