Thanks Jennifer, looks to be a great detector for the price, those guys on the video need to keep there coils closer and flatter to the ground when swinging.

Looks pretty interesting, I wonder if it will be as sensitive as a Gold Bug 2?

Not seeing the detector in person as yet that last video looked like the headphone jack might be a 1/8 plug rather than what most all others use with the 1/4 jack plug! However having said that if the price is right I may be getting rid of a couple of other detectors ... watch the classifieds!

Newer videos show that indeed it is a 1/8 inch jack - but it comes with 1/8 headphones and these days you can hardly buy 1/4 headphones at places like Best Buy.


Looks like a fancy Eureka Gold


wildly different inside though - its a one frequency detector running at 45 KHz.
