The 1280X Aquanaut metal detector is built to withstand rugged conditions and is designed for maximum versatility. Its fully collapsible pole assembly can be shortened for diving and extended for standing or wading, making it perfect for a variety of treasure hunting scenarios.

The 1280X is known for its performance in freshwater, but can also be used in saltwater.
