Viking ’s opinion
Using a circuit first introduced in 1976, the Viking 5 is a detector that has stood the test of time, and remains relatively unchanged today. It is one of the best selling and successful metal detectors of all time. The Viking 5 is remarkably easy to use, having just two simple tuning controls. It has excellent sensitivity to gold, silver and copper objects, yet discriminates against small iron junk. It is often acclaimed for its ability to detect desirable objects in a heavily mineralized site or one littered with rusty iron, a feat that is often impossible for a detector costing many times the price. These are the reasons that this detector has established itself so successfully within the hobby. Working well on both inland sites and the beach, this detector represents excellent value for money.

Great for beach

I purchased a Viking V5 because of its simplicity within minutes I was finding modern coins on the beach it ignored iron & trash making detecting a breeze, just because its a budget price detector dont let put you off I've used Garretts. Whites. C scope but this is by far the best, simply switch on and go, its as easy as that. Incidently other detector users on the beach with expensive machines found little. I came home with a pocket full of coins. Forget the rest buy the best. Viking.
