Prospecting Kits
The Sharp Shooter II is a professional
metal detector. The concepts and terminology
can be quite unfamiliar if you are new to the hobby.
To understand it quickly and to get the most enjoyment
possible from your detector, we strongly recommend
that you:
1) Turn the Sensitivity knob to a low setting if you get false signals. A
little practice is required to understand when and how you can use the
sensitivity at or near 100%.
2) Do not use indoors. This detector is for outdoor use only. Many
household appliances emit electromagnetic energy, which can
interfere with the detector. If conducting an indoor demonstration,
turn the sensitivity down and keep the searchcoil away from all floors,
walls and metal objects.
3) Do not test by placing coins on the floor. Most floors contain metal.
4) Read this manual.
Most importantly, review the Summary of Operating Modes.
5) Sweep the searchcoil from side-to-side. Coil motion is required in the
motion modes to detect metal.
6) Use 9volt ALKALINE batteries only.
Do not use Heavy Duty batteries.
Do not use normal Zinc-Carbon batteries.
7) Operating Frequency: 6.5 kHz
