Different Sounds

Ron in Montana - best

The Gold Strike was originally made to replace the Gold Bug II, but the way Fisher setup the new system of sounds and settings for the machine, it really did not catch on with Fisher fans even though it will find more gold than the New or old Fisher Gold Bugs because of its ability to eliminate hot rocks. And it also has manual and automatic ground balance. This is one hot machine and I really like using it when I go Nugget shooting. I purchased mine used and consider it a real bargain!

Excellent machine

Rick in Pacific Northwest - best

I also purchased my machine used. They were discontinued because no one really liked the tone system setup, but once you learn how to use this unit, it does a very very good job at finding gold and anything else you are detecting for in your hunting area! I was pleasantly surprised when I started hitting a lot of good targets with this unit. Also the Fisher has a very long battery life that I appreciate. If you can find one of these used, it is a great gold detector and worth a look!

The Fisher Gold Strike GMT twin

Fletch in Alabama USA - good

I have currently 3 MD's. The Fisher Gold Strike, Whites GMT and Minelab Explorer XS. The best thing about the Gold Strike is that it's much more versatile than my GMT. It's every bit the gold finder. Great discrimination. BACK LIT screen.
FORGET ALL NEGATIVE REVIEWS! I have owned many many machines over the last 38 years. If I didn't have my Gold Strike, I would have to buy two other machines to take its place. But you can't swing two at a time. Let me be blunt. I no longer buy Fisher machines simply because they dropped their best machine - GOLD STRIKE!

WoW Simply Amazing

Fletch in Alabama - good

I'm 54. Used many White's machines and several Garrets. The Gold Strike was my first Fisher. I bought it used cheap. Whenever I take my GMT, I always take the Gold Strike. When I Take the Gold Strike, I don't always take the GMT. If I could only have one VLF metal detector, it would be Fisher Gold Strike. Dual tone, 30khz perfect for everything and excellent on gold. The GMT is better on gold just because it is easier to use.
