Teknetics G2 on a deep silver dime

I’m planning to do a series of metal detector demos on this same dime before I dig up my test garden to move to a new house.  It was originally buried about 7 or so years ago.  First up is the Omega G2…  Interestingly, the G2 is designed to be a “gold detector” or in other words, for gold prospecting.  It has found a huge following in the world of relic hunting due to its great depth on low conducting targets (lead, brass and gold)  The G2 operates at 19 kHz (higher frequency typically means more sensitivity to lower conductor metals)

When I first tested the G2, I figured there was no way it would be a good coin shooter due to the frequency.  I was actually quite wrong!  It even hits the deep silver dime, as you’ll see in the video.  Comments and questions are welcome!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYou know, the Eurotek Pro kind of frustrates me! No, no…not because it has any problems . …but, instead , because it performs so blasted well while being so inexpensive ! I mean, I have quite a few much higher priced detectors that can’t do what this little fella does. Sure, it doesn’t have a lot of the features found on high-enders like backlight, notches, etc. But what it does bring to the table is the best performance I’ve found in ferreting out non-ferrous targets that are surrounded by iron.

A look back at Detector Stuff Metal Detecting interviews

avatar_42014 is here and the start of a new year can be a time to reminisce.

Merry Christmas from Detector Stuff!

I hope Santa fills your stockings with any and all metal detecting goodies you want this year!

Also, it’s my personal belief, that Jesus is the reason for the season…keep the kindness of nativity-scene1Christmas alive all year long.

White’s MX5

mx5_displayWhite’s has an interesting new detector on the market…it’s called the MX5.  Reports on performance are promising…and the price tag is good at $599.95.

It also seems to have a nice lighted display and touts rugged build quality.

Welcome to DetectorStuff.com!

Thanks for visiting…since the launch of DetectorStuff I’ve worked to improve the hobby of metal detecting by seeking out interviews, metal detector reviews, interesting stories, etc.

Not to brag, or anything (okay…maybe a little!) this was one of the first sites on the Web to interview industry insiders and put their unique perspectives on the written page for hobby enthusiasts.  I’ve had conversations with legends at Fisher, White’s, Detectorpro, Teknetics and more.  The “brains” behind some of the coolest detectors on the planet!

Drop by the forums at www.detectorstuff.com/forum for discussions and fun.

Please enjoy the content of this site and feel free to drop me an email or message with ideas, suggestions or just to say hello.
