One of the best, most versatile prospecting machines on the market! Incredible sensitivity to the tiniest gold nuggets.
More Powerful! More Sensitivity! More Depth! Affordable! The New Gold Bug Pro is unique among gold prospecting metal detectors for its combination of high sensitivity to small gold nuggets and its versatile function as an all-purpose treasure detector. A Gold PLUS Metal Detector Finds Gold PLUS Relics and Coins!
The controls and features are
tailored to gold prospecting, including a sophisticated ground balancing
system, separate control over signal gain and threshold, and a unique
discrimination control system. These features also make for a great
relic-hunting detector, especially when the Gold Bug Pro is outfitted
with the optional 11″ DD search coil.
While the Gold Bug Pro makes for a highly competent Coin-shooting detector, its user interface and features are not specifically designed for this purpose. As a coin-shooter, you will notice that the Gold Bug Pro exhibits slightly lower sensitivity to high conductivity coins, like a U.S. quarter; this is a result of its specialized design to emphasize sensitivity to small low conductivity metals like gold nuggets.
The Gold Bug Pro is outfitted with a small 5″ search coil as standard equipment since this search coil construction is best-suited to finding gold nuggets. You may be familiar with other metal detectors which have larger search coils, generally in the range of 8 to 10 inches in diameter. Large coils are designed to cover the maximum amount of ground efficiently and for the deepest ground penetration. Small search coils, intended for gold prospecting, are designed for precision.
The Gold Bug Pro’s small DD search coil makes pinpointing easier, fits into small spaces where gold is often hidden, is better suited to penetrate highly mineralized soils where gold is frequently found, and has the highest possible sensitivity to tiny gold nuggets.
