Interesting video takes you on a virtual tour of White’s Electronics in Sweet Home, Oregon. The host is…well, you be the judge! Kind of a kid in a candy shop sort of thing. Anyway, White’s has been in the biz for MANY years and has a ton of awesome metal detectors.
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!
