Metal Detectors Bring

Exercise and Treasure

Gender and age barriers among consumers using metal detectors—the kind used to unearth coins and other buried treasure—are falling. In addition to yielding treasures at varying values, the machines are getting people outdoors and active. While the stereotype is of old men walking with metal detectors on the beach, Michael Bernzweig, director at the supplier metaldetectors.com, says more men in their 30s are using them. Underwater models are suitable for scuba, combining the hobby with sport and adventure. Further, more women are buying them to help get their families outdoors together; it’s mostly women, Bernzweig says, who buy them around the holidays. Pictured is the Bounty Hunter Legacy 3500 model.
