newbie question

Recommended Posts

Hi there I'm fairly new at this and this is really my first post asking a question. I would really like to do this but I feel like I may be handicapped at it because both of my knees have been replaced with titaum replacements. Does anyone know how having replacement metal knees will affect the metal detectors and is there one that is better to use? Thanks

My Grandfather swings a Minelab 5k just fine, he has double full knee metal. The only time he has a problem is with larger coils, mostly he sticks to a NF 17x11 mono with a extended lower shaft.

Hope this helps,
