Enhanced T2LTD

We have been getting great reviews on our Enhanced T2LTD detectors and the Upgrade program (see our website for details). Here is a comment we received from a relic hunter in the UK:

Years ago I had purchased an original green Teknetics T2. Over time I became somewhat of an expert on using this machine. There are little tell-tale audio signs with the T2 that tell you what’s really under the coil. Over time I have had or used most of the machines that have come onto the market and tried to find those little quirks that the T2 has but I found that I was covering the same ground time after time then going back over them afterword with the T2 as I had trust that the it was not missing stuff and time after time the machine has proved this point.

I have been very lucky to acquire a new Enhanced T2LTD with the Digital Shield Technology and new Fe-Tone, and am I happy? You bet I am! I will now be selling the remainder of my other machines because I have all I need in this machine. I have trust, a good warranty, and a first class customer services department from a company that backs up what it says about its products. Darren in the UK

Additionally we have improved the quality of the T2LTD upper pole assembly by decreasing the size of some clearance holes. Smaller holes will increase the strength and integrity of the pole assembly.

DIG WARS!!!

New on the Travel Channel, Wednesdays at 9 PM Central, watch the new reality TV show DIG WARS. The Premier episode aired June 12, about three pairs of detectorists searching for coins and relics with metal detectors. You will see various Teknetics and Fisher detectors on different episodes and we expect it will create an increase in sales so tune in to catch all the details. This show is the best metal detecting reality show on the air, and it really emphasizes proper digging techniques (filling holes) and has a very strong historical aspect to it as well. We think it will be so well received that it will get renewed for a second season! If you miss an episode you can replay it on the Travel Channel website. If you have seen the third episode, you may have also noticed the Teknetics commercial we ran! If you missed it, visit our www.detecting.com website and you can view it there along with our other new commercial.
