As the title says,
Used Minelab GPX 4500 Vs Whites TDI pro and Gold bug 2 combo new.
I am considering my options and trying to work out which setup I would get the most value for money and most suited to my prospecting being a complete novice.
Do I buy a second hand GPX 4500 or buy a whites TDI pro and gold bug 2 new for similar money.
I plan on visiting Australia and USA at some point but will mainly be detecting in Europe where its mostly small gold,
My idea was to use the TDI pro in areas where the Gold bug 2 may suffer from Iron masking and hot ground . And use the GB2 in areas with pr oven small gold and not so hot soil types.
What do you think would be best? I like the fact with the combo I have a wider search range for multiple soil types.
Has anyone used a TDI pro?
How steep is the learning curve on GB2?
what would be the advantage of the GPX 4500 over the combo?
I would be mainly detecting bedrock in non trashy areas and small gullies with a moderate level of hot ground some areas much hotter with also the odd trip to Australia.
what would you do?
I have also looked into the Nokta golden sense, the AU finder, Forz gold plus.
But the GB2 and the TDI pro seem to be the direction I'm heading,
thanks in advance
( I am new to detecting and have no experience with a gold specific detector )
