GoldBug 2
« on: December 22, 2016, 07:53:33 AM »
Just ordered myself a Goldbug 2 with the 6.5 and 10 inch coils. Pretty stoked. Never used a detector before but really looking forward to it. Ive wanted a goldbug for years. I was out at a friends claim on Palmers Bar a few years back and he had a goldbug 2 and he pulled a couple nuggets out in front of me. Since then Ive always wanted one. I have a claim with very course gold, only problem is there is no water around. We were having to hike buckets of dirt 500m to pan in a little spring coming from the ground.  Hoping to be able to just scan the walls and the false bedrock layer now saving me a lot of humping dirt.

Good for you.One thing about a detector is it do not lie.Whether it is gold or trash there is something there.Very easy to pack a water bottle for washing objects.Happy hunting .Luck Mcbain.

Great detector. I have found plenty of nuggets with my GB2, its an excellent machine for all sizes of gold. Be sure to use a set of headphones and learn the sound of gold tho. Headphones are most important with this machine. Manual ground balance is easy to do, just be sure to stay on top of it as you move along it will make life a lot easier. No need to run max sensitivity, I run at about 7 on sensitivity and max volume, running on max sensitivity all the time will just wear it out quicker and it will pick up more hot rocks. I still find fly poop with it at 7.
