Best VLF on the market period!

Todd in shasta county, california - best

Gold Bug Pro is the best VLF gold detector. I have used one for almost 2 years. Where I hunt is mostly hot mineralized soil. That's usually where gold is found. It is very light. You can swing it all day long without pain, or hurting your back. It finds the smallest gold you ever seen, like stuff you find usually with a gold pan. The ground balance is easy, and it stays balanced quite well. When you have to use the iron discrimination mode, it is very trustworthy, and you only lose 1 inch of depth. I use it in surface pocket deposits in Northern California, and the Gold Bug Pro hunts thru the hot soil, ironstone rocks with ease. I went from never finding gold in my life to finding gold on a very regular basis. Could have never done it without this detector, or help from my teacher. The durability is great. I have used and abused this detector and it holds up great. This detector will beat any VLF on the market. I have found alot of gold with the stock 5 inch coil, but I exclusively use the fisher 10 inch dd coil now. I would recommend this size. I have found gold faster and more with this 10 inch coil, basicaly because it covers more ground faster. Good luck!
