I was thinking about buying the goldmonster 1000 and then I saw that White's has a new nugget shooter called the goldmaster 24K.  Looking for a recommendation as to which is a better detector for gold prospecting.  Thanks!

I saw a few folks out there using PI detectors (not sure how they were doing) I know they will go deeper than the GB2 and they will pick up the small gold too. But the amount of small trash targets I found I still believ...

6 Replies and 1229 Views What is the best pinpointer for gold prospecting?  1229  6 Started by  Fotakis1 I have a Garrett carrot and a Falcon MD-20.  I just bought a Nox 800 and I am looking for a pinpointer that is sensitive to small gold.  My Garrett carrot is horrible for small gold and I don't want to bring my Falcon as it's not practicle as a mobile pinpointer.  Are there other mobile pinpointers that are good for small gold

6 Replies and 17768 Views Want to buy  17768  6 Started by  rkaupas@hotmail.com Wanting a metal detector, I often hear Equinox 800 is best starter. My lifestyle and desired usage: *Travel the States fulltime in an rv. *Enjoy gold prospecting (pan, sluicing, etc.) *Would like to be able to search campgrounds, fields and beaches -- gold, coins, relics, etc. * Desert, fresh water, salt water, woodland all equally desirable search goals. Can one unit do it all What would you recommend (crossposted to multiple forums)

I made two videos of the test using two different styles of coils to help gpaa members and others with their detecting. I set up both detectors for general detecting. If I was going to be in one spot I would set up my detector hotter or more sensitive. Here are the links. Just copy and paste onto your search bar. https://youtu.be/2ghFniLuRnM https://yout...

I have a 3 day pass for the LDMA Blue Bucket camp and I'm going to check out the 3 GPAA claims on Burnt river. I'll be using a Goldbug2 and I'll be looking for the real small gold. Has any one metal detected on the Blue Bucket camp or any of the GPAA claims on Burnt river. I've had a hard time finding any information or comments from people metal detecting these areas.

I generally use a 14 inch coiltek elite and switch to a 8 inch mono commander from mine lab.It really rocks in tight places and on small gold the bigger coils miss.When out last week I switched over to the 8 inch in an area that was really tight with rocks and brush and it freaked out on me. I put it off as interference or something inside the coil cover ( which has tape on the seam). I too...
