Bounty Hunter Gold Digger
Jeff in up state ny -
I too bought mine on eBay used. I'm new at this. I paid around 65.00 dollars for it. I didn't use it right away because it was winter in upstate NY. It gets very cold here, and the ground is like a rock lol. Really I didn't know were to go so I started in a school year. I was very surprised how deep I was picking up beeping when out. During 3 outings I found 25c, 5c, dimes, pennies, an old ring at 4" deep. Most of my finds were at 2" and 4" deep among lots of junk (nails and stuff like that). I wish I lived near a beach - I would be there all day! lol Just waiting for a gold ring or something like that. Good luck everyone!

My first detector - Gold Digger
Brian in Waterford, PA USA -
Cost was a large factor when I purchased the BH Gold Digger. I got it on eBay for under $60.00 so figured it would be an expensive toy. Boy, was I wrong. It went together easily and even though it does not have all the bells and whistles, it is a very good detector. I have used it in all metal mode and also utilized the discriminator. I have found it to be very sensitive. Pinpointing with the unit works very well, and I have gotten used to cutting small plugs and rarely have a problem locating what caused the signal. I have kissed a lot of frogs but have also found my princess. My best find in the month I have had the BHGD is 65 Roossie's and 22 nickels - all in the same hole. The dimes were in a plastic roll, and the nickels were laying loose. Have no idea why anyone would bury a load of coins like that, but the dimes are worth around $90.00, so I have already found enough to say that the Gold Digger has paid off. If anyone wants to get started in metal detecting, then I highly recommend this unit as a first detector. Well worth the cost of the unit.
